Accidents like this one often prompt many questions, such as why a vehicle was headed in the wrong direction on the road. Did the driver suffer a medical emergency? Was he or she intoxicated or distracted at the wheel? These and other questions typically become central focus issues in post-accident investigations.

If a Florida fatal auto accident is determined to have been caused by driver negligence, an immediate family member of the decedent may seek justice in a civil court. By filing a wrongful death claim, an acting plaintiff can request compensation for damages. It is necessary to show evidence of negligence in such cases and also to prove that the driver’s negligence was a direct cause of the fatality that occurred. Because litigating such issues is typically quite challenging, most people considering filing such claims rely on experienced personal injury law attorneys to act on their behalves in court.
