A car accident can happen at any time and any place, including an individual’s place of residence. Nevertheless, it’s not that common for a driver to crash a vehicle into a Florida mobile home. Recently, a couple and an unborn child were killed in a fatal crash while they were in their mobile residence.
The accident happened on a recent Wednesday morning at a mobile home park. Upon a preliminary investigation, authorities determined that the driver of a SUV veered across the median and into the southbound direction. He ended up crashing through a gate and hitting a mobile home occupied by a pregnant woman and a man, both of whom were sleeping. Police say that the couple was killed at the time of the impact.
Tragically, the unborn baby was killed as well. The driver of the SUV was transported to the hospital and is expected to recover. Authorities are still investigating the accident, and no other information regarding this crash was reported.
A fatal crash is understandably devastating for all involved, including the surviving family of a deceased victim. Regrettably, a family is left to bear the burden of burying their loved one, struggling to come to terms with their grief and often confronting by unexpected expenses. Florida families who are affected by these types of tragedies retain the right to file a wrongful death claim against a party deemed negligent in order to seek recovery of monetary damages associated with the accident. Upon appropriate proof of liability, a civil court will consider claims for documented items of financial loss.
