Accident involving Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy

By: Admin

Our law enforcement agencies are supposed to be here to serve and protect the citizens of their area. Unfortunately, not all police officers are able to do so and use faulty judgment, sometimes leading to tragic accidents. Recently an Orange County sheriff’s deputy was traveling southbound on Tanner Road and failed to stop at a red light, causing him to hit an Astro minivan traveling on Colonial Drive. According to the accident report the police officer did not have his siren or emergency lights operating at the time of the accident. It is unsure why the deputy drove through the red light, but because of his lapse of judgment, four people were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, including two young children.

People believe that because a police officer is involved they should not question their actions but what people fail to realize is that police officers make the same mistakes as you and I. Sometimes these mistakes lead to harsh consequences. The attorneys at Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre are experienced trial attorneys who will fight for your rights, no matter who they are up against.

Al Hilado won my SSDI case for me. They helped me during a time that my life was really hard. I am so thankful to be receiving help now from Social Security. I would highly recommend Al as your Lawyer to win your case.

Al is a very professional and helpful attorney. I have never dealt with another disability attorney however, after hearing the nightmares of some of my friends who have filed and been denied, I rate him #1 as an attorney and new friend. Al was aware of my needs and was always there for us during the filing process. We were impressed with Al’s memory when it came to our case as well as the government requirements and the filing process. When it was time to go before the judge, he was very professional and knowledgeable of my case.
