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


I do not think I can find enough proper words to accurately convey my eternal gratitude for all your hard work, kindness and understanding during my daughters workers’ compensation case.  “Thank You” seems like it is not enough to convey my respect and appreciation I have for you. Thanks for having such a great staff, which shows why you all are the best.
