Fatal accidents take place approximately every three hours in Florida. Holiday weekends, such as the Labor Day holiday, unfortunately have higher numbers of traffic fatalities due to more motorists traveling on our roadways.
In this collision, Arthur Davis is said to have run a red light and caused the crash to occur. Failing to abide by basic traffic laws is negligent driving behavior. In Florida, a negligent driver can be held responsible for all injuries stemming from their negligence. An innocent victim who is killed by a driver's negligence can also lead to a wrongful death action by the victim's family members. The family of Jeremy Smith will have the option of pursuing a wrongful death claim against Arthur Davis.
