Recently, one man and four children from Georgia were tragically killed in an Interstate 10 crash occurring in the Florida Panhandle, according to WSB TV. A 32 year old was driving east in a Honda Civic in Northern Florida when her vehicle crossed the center line and skidded into oncoming traffic. Troopers report that no one in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt and five occupants of the car were ejected from the vehicle. All five passengers perished in the accident, while the driver was severely injured. Two dogs were also traveling in the car and they too perished in the accident.

Our firm understands the importance of holding the negligent driver or other party responsible for the accident.
Fatal head on accidents often involve two lane, rural roads. These accidents represent only a small percentage of all car accidents, but result in over half of all traffic fatalities. If a motorist is not wearing his or her seat belt during the head on accident, he or she will continue to move forward as the car comes to a sudden stop. The initial accident will generally affect the lower portion of the body, injuring hips, knees, and more, then the body continues to move forward, injuring the head, neck, torso, spine and other vulnerable areas of the body.
To receive compensation for your injuries associated with a head on accident, you must prove that the other driver acted in a negligent manner. Negligence could consist of violating traffic rules, driving while intoxicated, speeding, driving while distracted and much more. Once negligence is established as the cause of your injuries, your attorney can then assist you in proving damages, which could include medical expenses, pain and suffering and more.
