Family of Woman Killed In Crash With Stolen Vehicle Will Need To Know About UM
A tragedy occurred on White Street in Daytona Beach this past Saturday night. According to a story on WFTV.com, 27-year-old Laguadia Terry was killed when the vehicle she was travelling in on White Street was impacted by a stolen vehicle. The driver of the vehicle Ms. Terry was riding in, Sterling Slaton, was also seriously injured.
As an Orlando accident attorney who regularly helps families with wrongful death claims, my heart goes out to Ms. Terry’s family. The death of a 27-year-old woman is tragic under any circumstances, but in this instance the men who caused this accident had apparently stolen the car, and then fled the scene. These men have not yet been brought to justice.
Ms. Terry’s survivors would be well-served to consult with an experienced Central Florida car accident attorney. Even though the vehicle that crashed into Ms. Terry’s vehicle was stolen, damages might be recoverable from the Uninsured Motorist portion of a Florida automobile insurance policy. UM benefits might be available from Ms. Terry’s own coverage, from the insurance carried by Mr. Slaton, or from any resident that Ms. Terry was living with at the time of the crash. An experienced Florida auto accident lawyer will know the right questions to ask in order to determine if there is Uninsured Motorist coverage available.
