New Years Eve Fatal Auto Accident
The holiday season is finally behind us. Unfortunately, as we mentioned throughout November and December, the holidays bring a rise in car crashes. According to ABC News, a woman lost her life in a fatal auto accident right on New Year’s Eve. Shortly after 1am Florida Highway Patrol was called to South Shade Avenue and Grove Street. Two vehicles had collided. A Honda Civic driven by Brian Kelly, a 71-year-old Sarasota resident, crashed into a Ford Explorer. While the driver of the explorer survived with minor injuries, the passenger was instantly killed. Local authorities are continuing to investigate and the ABC News story states that charges are pending.
While the accident above is horrific, it was not the only fatal crash that took place just after midnight. In Osprey a man lost his life on U.S. 41 when he lost control of his vehicle, crashing into a signal light. As of now, the accident is under investigation to determine if alcohol was involved. Capping off the terrible past few days of reckless driving and senseless accidents deals with 4 juveniles who stole a car then crashed it into a tree. All four passengers were severely injured, a 17-year-old boy lost his life. Time and time again, alcohol and careless driving cause fatal accidents. Our law firm extends our condolences to all of those who sustained injuries in the accidents we mentioned above. More so, our hearts and prayers go out to those who lost their lives and to the families of the victims.

File a Car Accident Injury Claim
Insurance companies are notorious for denying legitimate injury claims. There are multiple ways that insurance firms try to wiggle out of forking over money. Whether it’s a lack of medical documentation on your part, or if there are circumstances surrounding the crash that are complicating things, you better believe that an adjuster or underwriter won’t try to use that against you. Sadly, one way you can hurt your chances of getting paid is by filing an injury claim incorrectly. If you would like to speak to a lawyer about how to file a car accident injury claim click here.
