Recently in Springhill, a Hernando County 14-year-old boy was struck by a motor vehicle while crossing Landover Boulevard. The boy was severely injured in the auto accident and was transported to a Tampa hospital for medical care. The boy was walking to school when the crash occurred. Law enforcement is completing the investigation into the exact cause of the auto accident injury. Our streets in Springhill and Brooksville are frequently traveled by children on their way to their Hernando County school. Hernando County drivers must act cautiously and reduce speeds around school areas to ensure pedestrian safety.
Once notified, the driver's auto insurance carrier will become involved. Auto insurance carriers often conduct immediate investigations into the cause of a crash. The investigation is completed in order to defend off any claims. This is why the injured party is often better prepared if they retain an auto accident attorney immediately after the crash. The personal injury attorney can hire their own auto accident investigator to obtain evidence and speak with witnesses. Otherwise, evidence and witnesses can fade or lose contact. This can be the difference in assuring that justice is served and the injured party is compensated by the insurance company.
