Car accidents injure 4 on US 19 in Florida

Four people were hurt in a serious accident on US 19 in Florida, a July 23 report states. This crash, like so many others, appears to be caused by mechanical failure, as a trailer separated from a white Ford pickup and went airborne. The trailer then crashed, causing mayhem.

The accident took place on July 22 during rush hour, which is probably the reason so many vehicles became involved. The count, at last update, was 10 vehicles. One driver reported that her minivan was struck by the trailer directly, but others had to swerve to avoid being hit, and that caused other accidents.

Crash in Miami-Dade leaves 1 dead, 3 injured

A crash in Miami-Dade left one person dead and three others injured, according to a report from July 13. An elderly woman passed away from her injuries, while several others had to be treated for injuries following the car accident. This crash happened when one driver failed to stop at a red light.

Failing to stop is sometimes construed as negligence, and if you've been hurt by someone who wasn't paying attention, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering as well as ongoing medical needs or costs associated with missing work. If someone you love was killed in the accident, you could be able to collect compensation to cover their medical bills and funeral costs as well.

Man charged with murdering a grandmother in car accident

A man who allegedly used his car as a weapon to kill a woman has been denied bail in a neighboring state. According to police, the 23-year-old man purposefully ran a woman over after he got into a car accident with her. Witnesses say the 53-year-old woman had exited her vehicle to survey the damage when the man purposefully drove into her and then ran over the top of her when he tried to escape the accident scene.

Trucking regulations have come into the spotlight in the last few days with the injury of Tracy Morgan and the death of his friend, also a comedian. There are safety rules in place in Florida and the United States at the federal level to help prevent this kind of accident from happening. If you've ever been in a crash with a semi-truck, you might have found yourself asking the same questions as people in this case. Was the driver too tired to be driving?

Only time will tell in this case, but it's important to know that there are strict laws in place that require drivers to drive their trucks no more than 11 hours on the roads during one shift. On top of that, the driver must then take 10 hours off before getting on the road again.

Being hit by a car can be life-changing. You may suffer from injuries that cause you serious pain and suffering.

Your case could be similar to this one from Miami, Florida. According to the news from May 18, a man has been held on $100,000 bond for a DUI charge related to a deadly hit-and-run crash. The man, a 36-year-old, attempted to flee the scene, according to reports.

Officer's wife sues for his death during Florida motorcade

If you lose a loved one in a motorcycle accident that isn't his or her fault, then you may know that you could potentially sue for compensation.

According to the May 28 report, the officer was killed in a motorcade that was used while the president was visiting the area. He suffered his injuries when he was struck while keeping traffic off Interstate 95.

The lawsuit was filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, and the woman is blaming the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for her husband's injuries and death. She believes that the agency did not have a plan for the motorcade that was clear, and if it had, then the man wouldn't have been struck by a vehicle.

Wrongful deaths happen due to air bag recalls

If you're facing the loss of your loved one, you may need to discuss your options concerning compensation.

In another case, Ford reported having software that had bugs that could delay air bags from deploying when a car rolls over.
