Despite news of car accidents in Sarasota being fairly common, most likely assume that such an incident may never happen to them. They may believe that by obeying the rules of the road and practicing defensive driving strategies, they will be able to avoid car accidents altogether. While there is something to be said about how safe driving translates to a general increased sense of safety on the road, people cannot plan for the actions of others, and all it takes is one negligent or careless driver to involve others in accidents that they not only may have never thought they would be a part of, but also could have not comprehended the extent of damages they might face.
This fact was on full display in a collision that recently occurred in Moore Haven. Two local resident were traveling in their car when it struck by a vehicle that ran a red light. Sadly, both were killed in the accident. It was not reported whether the driver of the vehicle that ran the red light (a Texas resident) was injured in the collision. Authorities are still investigating the accident, yet no charges have been filed.
Criminal charges, however, may not be a requisite for accident victims to have to meet before bringing action against the drivers that hit them. In cases such as this, the families of those lost may need compensation to help feel the financial and emotional voids their loved ones left behind. Those seeking such compensation may find that their chances of securing success with their actions can increase significantly if they choose to work with an experienced attorney.
