On June 30, 2010 a pedestrian was struck by an neighbor’s vehicle in the quiet neighborhood of Sunshine Ranches, Broward County, Florida while he was otherwise taking a leisurely stroll with his wife after dinner at approximately 9:18 in the evening. One minute the victim is strolling alongside his loving wife and in the next minute she witnesses her husband violently struck, and thrown against the windshield; suffering a severe skull injury and then propelled in a violent, grotesque fashion down the road.
Based upon the immediate investigation the operator of the vehicle that struck the pedestrian had reached down to retrieve a water bottle that fell from his lap and therefore did not notice the couple strolling. To the driver’s credit he had acted responsibly by not only remaining at the scene but for using his cell phone to assist in summoning emergent help; which were able to provide immediate emergent care at the scene.
The pedestrian victim was air lifted to a local hospital where he had undergone multiple surgical procedures to nearly every corner of his body. His skull injury required approximately 57 sutures to close after apparently making contact with the windshield and thereafter, the roadway. The investigating agency, The Broward County Sheriff’s Office, initially prepared their report as though it was a homicide investigation due to the apparently overwhelming serious, multiple injuries. The wife had been severely traumatized by the accident.
The victims shall be rightfully seeking compensation for all their injuries and damages suffered as a result of this unfortunate accident.
