Woman rear-ended and killed by suspected drunk driver

On Behalf of | Jun 16, 2020 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

Many drivers in the Tampa area have had the unfortunate luck of being involved in a car accident. Most of the time these accidents are just minor fender benders but occasionally they can result in serious injuries or even death. A recent car accident in Pasco County killed a driver.

There was a tragic, fatal accident recently in Pasco County that claimed the life of a woman. The woman from Crystal River was stopped at a red light on northbound U.S. 19 at the intersection of Beacon Woods Drive when a man driving a pick-up hit the back of her SUV.  Due to the impact from the pickup truck the woman’s SUV was pushed into the car in front of her. She was declared dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck was suspected to be under the influence at the time of the crash and charges are pending the completion of an investigation.

No one suspects their loved one will be the victim of a serious car accident. Unfortunately, this scenario plays out repeated in Florida and across the U.S. every day. Families deserve to know what happened to their loved one. A legal professional who is skilled in personal injury can help get these families the answers they need and the justice they deserve. They can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review the police report and bring families the truth about what happened. They understand that a family is suffering both the emotional and financial hardship from losing their loved one and will work to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

An unexpected car accident can be devastating for a family. The loss, both emotionally and financially can be huge along with the questions of what happens next. Families affected by a car accident due to no fault of their own have legal rights.
