It is never easy to say goodbye to a loved one who died in an accident, especially when someone else was at fault for causing that death. Your grief may soon turn to shock when you realize the full extent of the losses left behind by your family member’s passing. With the victim no longer around to contribute financial support, love, guidance, and other benefits, you may feel helpless. 

Fortunately, you do have options to pursue the responsible party through a Florida wrongful death claim. It may be possible to recover compensation by filing an insurance claim and, in some cases, you may be able to work out a settlement instead of going to court. You should trust the details to your Miami wrongful death attorney, but you might consider the following benefits.

Settling Brings Certainty

Jarrod M. Branscum, 22, was killed on Seven Mile Bridge after being struck head on in his vehicle. Branscum was driving north in a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer around 1:45 a.m. Emily Andrefsky, 33, was driving south in her 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe when she crossed into on-coming traffic. The head-on crash caused Branscum to die at the scene. Andrefsky was flown to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. The accident is under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol and charges are pending against Andrefsky.

Unfortunately, head-on collisions such as this are all too common, and they often cause serious injuries and fatalities. If you lost a loved one in a front collision, contact a Miami car accident lawyer at Gerson & Schwartz P.A. at (877) 475-2905.
