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.

I can’t thank you enough for all you have done to help Kim and I through all the suffering and hard times. Thank you for being there and helping me with all my emotions. I have learned a lot from you and will dearly miss talking to you. You are a strong and brilliant person and know “the law.” I’m so happy we had you on our side for all those years (2003-2016). I will never forget you. God bless you and we will pass on more clients to you.

When someone does such a phenomenal a job as Al has done for us,it’s hard to find the right words to thank him and his office for all the work that was done in our case. We would not have gotten anywhere without his knowledge and help. Until we actually saw all of the “HOMEWORK” that Al did,we had no idea how much work that had been put into our case. 5 stars for Al and his team for the excellent work in delivering a fair and just settlement.
