Wrongful death car accidents happen way too often in Miami and we’re no stranger to the devastation they cause.
Fatal accidents caused by the negligence of another party, such as drunk or reckless driving may be eligible for a wrongful death lawsuit, and that’s where we come in.
A to Z Injury Law attorneys are dedicated to helping families recover from wrongful death car accidents.
The streets of Miami are flooded with cars every day. Driving from Little Havana to downtown Miami on Flagler Street is bumper to bumper. South Dixie Highway is full of people in a rush, swerving in and out of traffic and it’s pretty much the same everywhere you go here in South Florida. While most accidents are preventable, you could still end up in some kind of car accident at no fault of your own.
Anyone driving through the streets of Miami owes a duty of care to everyone on the road. Not just to other drivers, but to motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicyclists as well. Anyone who doesn’t follow the traffic safety laws in South Florida should be liable for the consequences of their actions. But in order to seek justice, the family of a victim in a fatal car crash must be able to prove the other driver was negligent.
Some examples of negligent driving are:
- Drunk driving
- Speeding or driving too slowly
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Distracted driving – talking or texting on their cell phone
- Failure to use their turn signals
- Driving without a license
