On July 6, 2022, at approximately 11:30 pm, a pickup truck crashed into a tree at 54th Street and Central Avenue at the St. Petersburg intersection. There were four people in the truck at the time. One of the passengers died at the scene, one was airlifted to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and the two remaining passengers were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Police are currently investigating the accident.
Wrongful Death Happens When You Die From A Personal Injury
One of the passengers in this vehicle died in the accident. Since the personal injury received in the event was the cause of death, this is considered wrongful death. The family of the deceased person has the right to seek compensation for their losses against the responsible party.
A law firm with a diverse background would be very beneficial in helping the surviving family members. Not only will this type of case fall under personal injury law, but it may also fall under family law if there are minors involved in the case.
Since no other vehicles were involved in this accident, the driver of the vehicle may need criminal defense if it is found that they were driving under the influence when the case happened.
