A wayward semi truck crossed a grass median, striking a van in Jacksonville, Florida, First Coast News reported. The Jan. 7 collision killed a boy inside the van and injured its driver. The crash occurred on Interstate 10 sometime after 8 p.m. at mile marker 346. The tractor-trailer was travelling eastbound in the left lane of the highway when it crossed the grass median and flipped over into the westbound lane, colliding with the Honda vehicle.
The Florida Highway Patrol pronounced 10-year-old Eli Warren dead. Releia Warren, the 45-year-old driver of the van, had serious injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer was uninjured. Officials said they do not know why the semi truck turned over. The right lane of Interstate 10 remained blocked as of 1:30 a.m. the next day.
Having a child die in a motor vehicle crash is an unbearable tragedy. The pain, anguish, and unwarranted feelings of guilt are all worsened by the financial toll of an unplanned funeral. All of this — in addition to the injuries that you may suffer — may leave you with a pile of bills you can’t afford. If another driver is found responsible for the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for these expenses.
In all likelihood, recovering this remuneration means dealing with insurance companies that want nothing but to hoard their profits at your expense. Despite your clear legal entitlement to fair compensation, these companies may attempt to deny you what you are owed, forcing you to take legal action.
Fighting insurance companies alone can result in a drawn-out legal process that may recover a mere fraction of what you deserve. With an experienced attorney in their corner, plaintiffs stand to recover 300% more than they would fighting alone, on average.
