Parents in Florida who put their children into day care have every expectation that the kids will be safe and under adult supervision until parents return to take them home. Unfortunately, because of the apparent negligent actions of one driver, a 4-year-old girl died in what should have been a safe place and on what should have been an ordinary day.
Speeding is one of the most common traffic offenses on the streets and highways of every state, including Florida. Any driver caught speeding is lucky to receive just a traffic citation. If the speeding has led to a car accident, then a ticket can quickly turn into a criminal charge, especially if other motorists or bystanders are injured. Consider a recent accident 100 miles north of Tampa.
The loss of a loved one often leaves family members and friends with considerable grief. The sense of loss is often compounded when negligence seems to have contributed to the death. One mother experienced such a loss, and she has decided to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Walgreens for having a hand in the death of her son.
Impaired driving is a serious offense in Florida. When drunken driving leads to an auto accident that injures or kills other motorists, the state has a strong interest in removing that driver from the road and imposing penalties to prevent reoccurrences of such behavior and to provide victims with some sense of relief and justice. One recent injury car accident in Ocala is about to test that theory.
