In Florida, some automobile accidents involve more than one injury victim. Some even involve more than one death. When these serious injuries and accidents take place, it can result in a number of legal, practical and automobile insurance issues.

Most automobile insurance policies have liability limits. When there are multiple accident victims, there may be a conflict or competition for these proceeds. Often times, the available insurance limits may be insufficient to properly compensate one accident victim let alone all of the accident victims who deserve compensation due to personal injuries and related damages. When there is a wrongful death, the surviving family members are entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved one. It is tragic when a person dies as a result of an automobile accident. It is also problematic when there is no automobile insurance OR inadequate automobile insurance coverage following an automobile accident.

A tragic accident was recently reported in Bradenton, Florida. It was reported that two teens died and four others were serious injured in an automobile accident that took place on Bishop Harbor Road. The automobile accident involved a 2004 Nissan Altima.
