There was a gap in a median that allowed a car from the opposite direction to hit and kill my wife. Do I have a case against the Florida Department of Transportation?

We are saddened to hear of your loss, and welcome the opportunity to talk with you more about your case in greater detail. Without having all the facts, it is difficult to determine if you have a solid wrongful death case in Florida; however, it does sound possible.

Your case will depend on various findings such as: Was your wife traveling at a safe speed? Did the Florida Department of Transportation know of the danger and was there adequate time to correct the problem? Because the DOT will likely deny fault, it is important that an attorney you hire does the following:

  • Investigates the crash
  • Hire an accident reconstruction expert
  • Take witness testimony

Because wrongful death cases can be emotional, lengthy and difficult, it is important that you have a South Florida personal injury attorney on your side who you feel comfortable with and you can talk to every step of the way.
