Personal injury claims may help those injured in car accidents

Car accidents can happen unexpectedly, especially when drivers fail to observe their surroundings. This can result in a serious personal injury or even a fatality. Two teenagers were killed and another two injured in a recent Florida crash.

According to Miami-Dade Police, the victims' car was struck by a pickup truck. The impact pushed the car into the median. It then struck a fire hydrant and a tree, which resulted in one of the passengers being ejected.

Tragically, the victim who was ejected from the car died at the scene. The driver of that car and another passenger were both injured and taken to the hospital in critical condition. The passenger later passed away as a result of his injuries. The driver of the pickup truck was not injured in the crash. Police have not revealed whether the truck driver will be charged.

Those who suffer injuries in car accidents may be entitled to file personal injury lawsuits in civil court against drivers believed to be responsible for a crash. Similarly, surviving families of deceased victims may be entitled to file wrongful death lawsuits in civil court. When these types of claims successfully prove negligence on behalf of the opposing party, plaintiffs then may receive monetary damages that can be used to pay medical bills, funeral costs or any other financial expenses related to the crash. Anyone interested in learning more about these claims could speak with an experienced Florida personal injury attorney to obtain more information as well as to receive assistance in filing them.
