Florida personal injury: 3 injured, 1 dead following car crash

Several Florida teens were injured and one ultimately died following a single-vehicle car crash in Marion County. This incident occurred in early August. While this may have only involved the one automobile, the injured passengers and the surviving family members of the deceased may all be entitled to seek compensation for their losses by filing personal injury or wrongful death claims against the driver or owner of the vehicle.

According to a news report, the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a crash that occurred after midnight on August 3 in Ocala. The driver, a 19-year-old male, lost control of his vehicle while rounding a curve in the road. The car left the street, hit a fence and then struck a tree. Initially, the driver and three passengers were all transported to area hospital with injuries. A 15-year-old female, however, suffered critical injuries and died later that same day.

Police are still in the process of investigating this incident. It is unclear whether charges are pending against the driver. Authorities have also not indicated what, if any, factors contributed to the wreck.

Numerous teenagers in Florida and elsewhere lose their lives in auto accidents every year. It is a sad reality, as many of these incidents are highly avoidable. In this particular case, if the driver is believed to have been negligent in his actions, he and the owner of the vehicle, if different, may be held responsible for any damages his victims and the family members of the deceased have sustained. By filing and litigating personal injury or wrongful death claims in a state civil court, fair and full compensation may be achieved.
