Best Evidence Following Florida Car Crash Instantly Disappears

Posted by on Mar 9, 2015 in Motor vehicle accidents

If you are involved in a Florida car crash, you can rest easy because you know that the camera perched over the intersection where the other driver just ran a red light and smashed into you car, recorded everything, right? Unfortunately, not. The vast majority of Florida traffic cameras don’t record anything.  The images passing through the lenses of the machines disappear as soon as they are broadcast back to the traffic monitoring center.  Watch this video to learn more: If you have been involved in a Florida car accident, and have any questions, please call Winter Park personal injury attorneys Kim Cullen and Robert Hemphill at 407-254-4901.  Consultations, and questions answered, are always...

Were Gates In Use At Orlando Apartment Where Drive-By Murder Occurred?

Family members are left to wonder what kind of security measures were in place at the Alta Apartments in Orlando after a young man was killed, and two others were injured in a drive-by shooting on Sunday. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Earl Alonzo Allen, 22, was tragically found dead from a gunshot wound after a car carrying several young men drove by a group of people who were gathered near the rear of the complex and started shooting.  At the time of this writing it was unclear whether law enforcement authorities had information regarding the identity of the shooter(s) or even the make and model of the car. As Florida wrongful death attorneys who have seen more than our fair share of tragedies like this one, our hearts go out to the family of Mr. Allen.  Twenty-two years old is too young for a life to expire — especially like this.  Our thoughts and prayers also go out to the surviving victims of the shooting in hopes for a speedy recovery. If I was a member of Mr. Allen’s family, I think I would want to know what kind of security was in place at the Alta Apartments.  The news article mentioned that the apartment complex was gated.  However, what kind of gated control was in place if a group of young men could freely enter, do their shooting, and safely exit the complex?  Where was the security guard to take down the shooter’s tag number or identify the vehicle?  Was the surveillance video or still camera capturing images of the shooting or the shooters’ vehicle? If an apartment complex has security measures in place, but fails to put them to good use to protect its residents or guests, the complex can be held liable in damages for negligent security. If you have a question about a potential negligent security or shooting claim, call Winter Park personal injury attorneys Kim Cullen and Robert Hemphill at...
