Car accident leads to 1 fatality,1 injury

A man was recently killed in a motor vehicle collision in Florida. Meanwhile, a woman suffered serious injuries in the collision. The reported wrong-way car accident occurred along U.S. 41 on a Tuesday and involved two cars.

Authorities reported that a 41-year-old man was driving with no headlights on. In addition, he was reportedly going south along the highway but in the highway's northbound lanes. Meanwhile, a 23-year-old woman was driving north on the highway.

The woman allegedly tried to swerve and avoid the man but was unable to do so. As a result, the cars ended up crashing into each other. The man, who did not have a safety belt on, died at the crash scene, whereas the woman survived the collision. However, she was transported to the hospital, where her condition was deemed serious.

The female injury victim may opt to file a personal injury claim, seeking damages. Although the man who allegedly caused her injuries ended up dying in the collision, the man's estate may still be named in a lawsuit. In the same way, anybody with an ownership interest in the car he was operating at the time of the collision may face a lawsuit as well.

Competent proof of negligence is necessary to establish liability before the civil court hearing the personal injury case in Florida. Only if liability is established will claims for monetary damages be decided. A suit that is litigated successfully may result in a monetary damage award that might help the injury victim to address her hospital bills, the loss of wages and other losses linked to the car accident.
