One killed in DUI car accident

Miami residents are used to pedestrians. There are many tourists and residents that enjoy meandering through our city and its neighboring communities. Drivers are usually cautious, but occasionally, a serious accident occurs that results in wrongful death charges.

In May, a pedestrian and four other cars were hit by a vehicle in Hallandale Beach. The pedestrian landed on the vehicle's hood and then was thrown from the car. She was taken to Aventura Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

The driver walked away, but was soon arrested and found under the influence with a 0.15 percent blood alcohol level. When he learned his blood alcohol results, he purchased a one-way ticket to Hungary and fled in July. He has since returned and is now facing several charges, including DUI manslaughter.

No one expects their loved one will be the victim of a serious car wreck. But, sometimes, people make bad decisions. They may drive under the influence of alcohol or be distracted by their cell phone.

Regardless of the circumstances, drivers who make bad decisions need to be held accountable. If a family is facing the death of a loved one due to another person's negligence, they may want to speak with a legal professional skilled in personal injury. An attorney can investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident and hold the negligent party responsible. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.

There is nothing worse than losing a loved one. Families who have lost a loved one have the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible.
