Pedestrian Killed By Hit And Run Driver

By: Admin

A man was hit and killed by a black jeep with a loud muffler on Semoran Boulevard. The driver of the jeep fled the scene. The driver can face criminal felony charges for leaving the scene of an accident. We have seen this many times in other cases where we have represented the injured person. In those cases where we found witnesses, the driver had been drinking, had no drivers license or had criminal issues pending. We have also found that people who flee the accident scene may not have insurance. This is a great reason that you should make certain that you have Uninsured Motorist coverage on your car. The Uninsured Motorist coverage will protect you and pay for for injuries, lost wages and other damages when the person who hit you does not have insurance. It may also protect you when you are a pedestrian. This would
include walks on the beach where cars are allowed and sunbathing on the beach. Recently a lifeguard in a pick up truck ran over a sunbather at the beach because he did not see her. Protect yourself and your family by making sure you are properly
insured. One accident that keeps you from working for 6 months is not worth the risk
of saving 15% or 20% on your car insurance. Call us fo a Free Consultation on your accident or just to review your insurance policy and your coverage. Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre. 407-841-7699 or visit our website at


Upon settlement of my case, I felt it was a fair settlement amount and that Mr. Hilado did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been smooth and as comfortable as possible. Every step along the way, which was a true long journey, I was kept informed of the progress, I could not have asked for more!

Tom represented me for an automobile accident. He helped me get to the right specialists for medical care. I was getting no where with the insurance company regarding the damages to my car or myself. Once Tom started representing me, the ball started rolling. He was able to get me the medical care I needed, reimbursement for my automobile, and my lost wages were paid. He was always available to take my calls. I would highly recommend him.
