Man killed in vehicle collision while waiting with disabled car

An out-of-town driver was recently killed in a tragic vehicle collision in Florida. The driver's car suffered difficulties and came to a stop on the side of the road. The driver got out of the vehicle and was then hit by a moving vehicle that was traveling through the roadway. The individual who was driving the car that hit the victim did not stop to help and at this time police officers have not been able to identify that person.

The victim was taken to a local hospital but was not able to survive their injuries. As police continue to investigate this incident and look for leads that may provide information on the identity of the responsible hit-and-run driver the family of the deceased victim will have to begin the difficult process of making final arrangements for their lost loved one.

Funerals can be expensive and so too can the costs related to any emergency medical care that a victim receives prior to succumbing to their accident-related injuries. Coupled with the emotional toll that losing a loved one takes on their family, the lost income and wages the victim may have contributed to the financial welfare of their household, and the pain and suffering those who loved the victim will experience without their presence, the cost of getting based a fatal vehicle accident can be incredibly high.

However, despite the many challenges that may present themselves following a deadly car accident, victims and surviving family members of deceased victims can always investigate their rights to compensation for their losses. Personal injury law provides numerous claims and causes of action that individuals can use to recoup their financial expenditures and begin the healing process after a deadly crash. Attorneys who work in the personal injury field are well-suited to advise individuals in these difficult situations of their rights and options regarding civil litigation.
