2 killed in head-on accident in Venice

There is no more universal way to get across or around the state of Florida than by car. Although there are several bus routes, train tracks and flights around the Sunshine State, nothing reaches the allure -- and the numbers -- of one's own motor vehicle.

There are several dangers inherent in driving, although most of them can be mitigated with close attention paid to the road and other drivers. A few of the most common accidents are caused by excessive speed, always tempting on the long stretches of Florida's Turnpike and other major roads in the state.

A tragic accident that recently cost two lives in Venice is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. A pickup truck was heading the wrong direction in the northbound lanes of U.S. Route 41 near Crane Road when it struck a car carrying a mother and child head-on.

A supervising officer with the Florida Highway Patrol stated the accident was a "direct hit." The survivor of the accident was airlifted to a Tampa hospital in an attempt to save his life.

Accidents caused by other drivers or hazardous conditions on the road may cause serious injury, permanent disability or even death. Victims and their survivors have the right to seek restitution through settlements, civil actions or other legal tools.

An attorney may help the victims of car accidents determine the best way forward in seeking reimbursement for medical expenses or lost wages during recovery, as well as compensation for pain or emotional distress.
