WRONGFUL DEATH

 

Losing a loved-one can be an extremely devastating event in one’s life. Despite the significant emotional trauma of having a loved one pass away, families may also face considerable financial difficulties without the support of the deceased. In many cases, the compensation provided as a result of a wrongful death lawsuit can help ease this financial burden.

 

What is a Wrongful Death?

 

Generally, wrongful death claims are civil actions made by the survivors of an individual who has passed away due to the negligence or misconduct of another. In the state of Florida, the Florida Wrongful Death Act governs wrongful death claims. Any individual (who is a survivor of the decedent) may file a lawsuit against the responsible person when any death is caused by any wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract of warranty. The wrongful death action is designed to provide compensation for relatives who depended on the decedent for emotional and financial support.

What Is Automobile Negligence?

 

In Florida, when a person fails to operate their motor vehicle in a reasonably safe manner, they are deemed to have committed automobile negligence. In most cases, this is deemed to be careless driving, which is defined in Florida Statute 316.1925:

Any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways within the state shall drive the same in a careful and prudent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person. Failure to drive in such manner shall constitute careless driving and a violation of this section.

TRUCK ACCIDENTS

 

The use of tractor-trailer trucks continues to remain a vital source of the local and national economy. However, when the operator or owner of a tractor-trailer causes an accident, the results are often catastrophic. Some common causes of trucking accidents include, but are not limited to: distracted driving, drowsy driving, driving while under the influence, overloaded, over-width and overweight trucks, brake failure, and inadequate truck maintenance. As a result, truck drivers and trucking companies may be deemed liable to pay extensive damages if they cause injury or death to another driver, passenger, motorcyclist, or pedestrian.

There are many federal, state and local laws in effect that are designed to help reduce or prevent trucking accidents.

If you or a loved one is the victim of a trucking accident, due to the negligence of a tractor-trailer accident, you must contact an attorney as soon as possible. Every time a trucking accident happens, trucking work very quickly to protect their interests. It is very important that you protect yourself legally if you have been injured in a commercial truck accident. Call Amber Hall, Attorney at Law, PLLC for your legal needs.
