Motor vehicle collision on a foggy morning

On Behalf of | May 9, 2024 | Car Accidents |

Dense fog is one of many issues that confront drivers in inclement weather. Navigating a Florida road in foggy conditions is challenging and often dangerous. One never knows when tragedy might strike, as it did at approximately 7 a.m. on a recent Sunday.

A 69-year-old man was heading west on US 98 when an eastbound vehicle veered over the divider line and into his path. The man reportedly tried and failed to avert a collision. He suffered severe injuries when the front of the woman’s vehicle smashed into the front corner of his car.

A fatal crash

A 23-year-old woman was behind the wheel of the wayward vehicle. Sadly, she did not survive the accident. Whatever caused her to drift out of the lane may never be known.

In Florida and all other states, if another driver’s negligence is responsible for a motor vehicle collision, those with injuries can file personal injury claims in civil court. When the party deemed at fault dies, the claim may be made against the individual’s estate. A recovering accident victim does not have to stand alone in court. An experienced injury attorney can take the reins during proceedings, which helps alleviate stress and protect a plaintiff’s interests.
