Florida's Escambia County settles car accident claim for $90,000

Car accidents make the headlines in Florida all the time. It seems that every time you look at the media, it is filled with stories of people suffering horrific injuries in car crashes. While news reports about accidents and their immediate aftermath are easy to find, reports about failed or successful victim compensation efforts are not so easy to find. That is why a recent story out of Escambia County stands out.

The story begins in 2015 when a Cantonment man experienced an accident involving an "Escambia County Roads and Bridges truck" that was transporting waste tires. Reportedly, a tire fell off the truck and bounced into the victim's path. When the man tried to avoid the tire, he lost control of his vehicle and collided with a Waste Management Solid Waste motor vehicle. This collision caused the victim's vehicle to roll over and partially eject him.

The victim suffered several serious injuries including damage to his thoracic spine, neck and right shoulder. He also suffered lacerations and injuries to his face and is scarred from the accident. After treatment, the victim received an 8 percent permanent impairment rating of the body. In addition to his physical injuries, the man faced costly out-of-pocket expenses related to the car accident.

The good news is that the victim of this accident will likely receive a settlement totaling $90,000 from Escambia County. The news report indicates that the man's effort to find justice paid off as the office of the county attorney intends to recommend approving the settlement.

This story reveals how victims of negligent car accidents can rise above adversity to find a satisfactory legal solution. This is especially important when victims need compensation to help pay for the medical treatment necessary to at least partially recover.
