A spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol said a semi-truck crash resulted in the deaths of a 21-year-old woman and 23-year-old man. The crash happened Tuesday at 5:40 p.m. on the I-95 southbound off-ramp at Lem Turner Road. According to the crash report from the Florida Highway Patrol, the semi-truck lost control while making a curve on I-95 southbound near Lem Turner Road. The truck swerved into a concrete barrier, bounced off, and hit a KIA sedan that was in the right lane. The impact sent both vehicles to hit a metal guardrail on the right shoulder of the interstate. Investigators said the driver and passenger suffered fatal injuries as a result. The driver of the semi-truck, a 65-year-old man, was not hurt.
Injured in a Car Accident? Let Our Car Accident Attorneys Help!
Despite that not all legal complications require the use of an attorney, many of us will face situations in life that can be better managed by a competent skilled attorney. In fact, there are many situations where injury victims will likely need the help of a competent car accident attorney to assist you after a car crash. Maybe your insurance company is unwilling to come to a settlement of your claim for property damage or injuries despite many conversations with the
insurance adjuster. In some cases, if the other driver’s insurance provider has determined that you are the one who is at fault for the crash, you may be left with no offer to settle your claim. In that kind of situation, you will either need to walk away or pursue a more aggressive course of action. Maybe you have progressed beyond settlement talks and have decided to file a lawsuit on your own without representation. Or maybe you are dealing with alternative dispute resolution method such as arbitration or mediation and are confused as to how to proceed. In any of the scenarios, speaking with a car accident attorney to assess whether there may be another course of action that you may benefit from can be very helpful. Another common issue facing many car accident injury victims is burdensome medical expenses. Especially when many injury victims are also unable to work during their recovery period. If your medical expenses or lost wages are getting too high, and the other side’s insurance company is not offering any type of settlement for your claim, enlisting the help of one of our car accident attorneys can be a life saver. Additionally, if your injury will require future medical treatment and/or procedures or surgeries, you should consider hiring a car accident attorney. For injury victims that find themselves in these situations, litigating a personal injury case or simply getting an insurance company to offer a fair settlement can be highly complex and cost prohibitive as it may require the retaining and coordinating of many experts and other witnesses. Also, it is important to understand that high value cases are the most common types of cases that get contested by auto insurers. It is likely that if you have this type of car accident claim or case, you may find yourself in litigation for several years as many insurance companies will insist on delaying payment or simply denying a claim without a valid reason.
