Determining Liability in a Fatal Car Accident

One of the key factors determining a settlement will be establishing liability after the incident. Our attorneys will help walk you through this process and help gather information from the accident. Below are a few signs that a driver might be held liable:

Signs that a driver may be negligent:

  • Speeding
  • Running red lights
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Asleep at the wheel
  • Distracted driving, texting, or not paying attention to the road.

There are other factors to consider as well. In some cases, someone other than the driver is liable, such as the car’s manufacturer or the tire manufacturer. Some examples:

  • Braking defect or faulty brakes
  • Steering defect
  • Defective airbag or seat belt
  • Defective tire

After a consultation, our attorneys will discuss the various options available for you. Our team will investigate the car accident scene, review police reports, interview witnesses, and more to determine the best course of action for you. If your loved one has died in a car accident, then you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent party.

A Car Accident Lawyer's Role in your Case

Proving who is at fault and how much you deserve in compensation can be complicated. Other parties will try to deny liability or claim that the decedent was partially or fully at fault for what happened. In other cases, you won’t get a fair settlement offer from the insurance company and a personal injury lawsuit may be in your best interest.

Snedaker Law has experience building strong claims on our clients’ behalf. No matter your situation, we’ll work with you to prove the full extent of your injuries and fight against insurance companies to get the full compensation that you deserve.

The average car accident claim in Florida settles for $15,000. Our years of experience and personalized attention have generated settlements of up to $200,000 or more for our clients.

How long after a fatal car accident can you recover compensation

In Florida, you have two years to file a wrongful death action according to statute 95.11

Family members may be entitled to compensation

When someone dies due to the negligence of another driver, then the death is considered wrongful. The spouse and children or the decedent’s estate beneficiaries can file a wrongful death claim.

The following are some of the factors considered when determining a settlement amount after a fatal car accident.

  • Medical Expenses
  • Pain and Suffering
