This is the first question to ask. Was the accident the fault of the employee or the other driver? This is simple in some states, but can be more complicated in Florida. Florida is a pure comparative negligence state, which means that when a lawsuit happens, damages are limited by how much the driver is found to be at fault.
Your immediate concerns following an incident will revolve around your health and safety. However, you’ll also need to take the financial repercussions into account. If the accident was due to another driver’s negligence, filing a legal complaint against them is the most common solution.
According to an FHP report, Raymond Almodovar of Ormond Beach, died after he veered off the highway and his car struck a guardrail, spun back into oncoming traffic, and was T-boned by a northbound Jeep Wrangler. Highway Patrol officials say the driver of the Wrangler got out and assessed the damage before getting back into his vehicle and fleeing the crash. Almodovar died at the scene.
