After suffering injuries in a car accident, an individual may have many choices that need to be made. There will likely be decisions regarding care and treatment, how to handle potential lost income due to time away from work and/or whether to pursue legal action. When a party is seriously injured in a car accident, the repercussions can be substantial, and it could be wise to consider filing a personal injury claim.

A man in Florida may be looking into such options after he was seriously injured in a car accident. It was reported that the man’s vehicle was hit in the rear by an approaching vehicle after the driver of that vehicle apparently did not see the man’s SUV. The impact caused both vehicles to spin, leave the roadway and collide with trees.

The driver of the SUV was considered to be in serious condition and was taken to an area hospital. A passenger in the other vehicle suffered fatal injuries, and the driver of that vehicle was also critically injured. It was noted that there were no skid marks to indicate that the driver had attempted to slow down before colliding with the SUV.

As a result of the car accident, the seriously injured driver will likely face many difficulties. Medical expenses are likely a top concern as well as other damages that may have resulted from the Florida crash. If the SUV driver feels that it is appropriate for the situation, he may wish to file a personal injury claim against the driver considered responsible. A civil suit could provide him with the opportunity to seek compensation for damages.
