In early May, a driver going the wrong way on State Road 60 caused a four-car crash. His pickup truck struck two cars, and one was pushed into a semi-tractor trailer. One of the drivers he hit was taken to Tampa General Hospital and died from his injuries.
In the Tampa Bay area in general, more than a dozen people were killed in wrong-way crashes just last year.

If you are in an accident, you should first seek immediate medical attention and obtain a record of all of your injuries. Even if you don’t think you are seriously injured, you should get checked and have a record. You should also get a copy of the accident report from the police. Next, contact your insurance company and file a claim on your vehicle. If possible, while you’re still at the scene, you should take photos and gather the names, addresses, and phone numbers of witnesses.
It is not a good idea to provide a statement or talk to the other party’s insurance company until you seek legal representation. Most importantly, do not sign anything until speaking with an attorney, and never admit to any form of liability.
James O. Cunningham uses top experts and accident reconstructionists to determine the cause of an accident. This helps to establish clear liability for your injuries. Attorney Cunningham has more than 30 years of experience handling all kinds of claims, including personal injury and wrongful death from wrong-way crashes.
