Woman from Venice Dies Several Months After Collision With Semi

A woman from Venice passed from injuries she suffered in an accident that occurred in January, according to information released by the Florida Highway Patrol.

The accident occurred on January 19 at the intersection of Woodmere Park Boulevard and U.S. 41. A tractor-trailer pulled out in front of a sedan that was being driven by the woman, who was 78. According to police, both had solid green lights at the time of the accident.

The woman was transported to the hospital with serious injuries, to which she succumbed on April 19. The cause of the crash remained under investigation.

Accidents with semis often turn serious

Accidents with semi trucks come with some extra concerns and issues that could affect a person’s recovery, as well as their legal case. For one, the disparity in size between semis and most other vehicles on the road means people involved in accidents with tractor-trailers are much more likely to experience significant injuries as a result of the collisions.

In addition, the issues of liability in accidents involving semis can be slightly different. Vicarious liability may be an issue if the truck driver was employed by a company and the accident occurred in the scope of their employment. There are also numerous federal regulations that govern trucking operations that must be considered as part of any personal injury lawsuit involving truck drivers.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a semi truck, contact an experienced Bradenton, FL personal injury lawyer at Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez & Walsh to learn more about the steps you should take to resolve your injury claim and prove liability on the part of the truck driver.
