Pedestrian accident in Florida claims life of visiting woman

For some people, walking is something they enjoy. It is a chance to be out in the fresh, Florida air, a time to get away from the computer and an opportunity to take in some gentle exercise. If one has errands to complete within a close proximity, walking may be preferred over driving. Unfortunately, walking near traffic also leaves people vulnerable, especially if one is unfamiliar with the traffic in Miami. A pedestrian accident can have catastrophic results.

Recently, a woman visiting from another state apparently walked to a nearby McDonalds for some food. Employees recall the woman who came into the restaurant sometime after 2 a.m. As she made her way home, she apparently attempted to cross a multi-lane road in a residential area. It was there that she was struck by a passing vehicle. The vehicle did not stop, and the driver did not render aid or call for medical help.

A passerby discovered the body of the 26-year-old woman lying face down in the gutter. Police were notified, and somehow they obtained a description of the vehicle they suspect may have struck the woman. The media was notified to report that the vehicle in question likely has damage to the right front or side.

Although the person responsible for this pedestrian accident has not been located, with the help of the public, those involved in hit-and-run cases are often brought to justice. The family of the victim is likely facing many trials, including emotional and financial challenges related to the accident. They, along with anyone in Florida who suffers the loss of a loved one in a motor vehicle accident, have the right to seek the advice of an attorney regarding the process of seeking potential compensation through civil courts.
