Fighting for Florida Car Accident Victims Since 1977

Home Blog Auto Accident

April 16, 2015

A community was shaken last month when a church van carrying 18 people crashed into a canal in rural south Florida. The crash near La Belle in Glades County killed eight people and injured many others. The driver of the van missed a stop sign at an unlit T-intersection, and ended up driving the vehicle across four lanes and through tall grass into the canal.

The driver and seven passengers were killed, and the pastor was hospitalized in critical condition. The group was returning to the Independent Haitian Assembly of God after taking a trip to a church in Fort Meyers for Palm Sunday.

Rural areas can be dangerous for drivers, especially at night. Unmarked intersections and no streetlights mean less visibility, and more confusion for the driver. If you or someone you know is involved in a car accident, you should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately.

Florida car accident attorney James O. Cunningham has been working with car accident victims since 1977, and can offer assistance on any type of car accident you’re involved in. Whether it’s a rear-end collision, a guardrail accident, a head-on collision, an SUV rollover, a hit and run accident, or an accident on dangerous or poorly maintained roads, like this one, attorney Cunningham can help. After an accident people often don’t know what the next steps should be, or how to seek help. Call an experienced attorney to walk you through the steps and receive proper compensation for your injuries or loss.

For more than 30 years, James O. Cunningham has been working with car accident victims to help them receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries and hospital stays. Medications, ongoing rehabilitation, doctor fees, missed work, and psychological treatments add up quickly, reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars in some cases. Even good insurance policies don’t always cover ongoing or extensive costs, which is why it’s useful to have a specialized car accident like James O. Cunningham on your side.
