FHP Accident in Kissimmee

Just prior to the start of summer, a Kissimmee pedestrian was fatally struck by a car attempting to cross Orange Blossom Trail.

Around 5:10am, 56 year-old Jose Torres of Davenport, was driving a 2014 Nissan vehicle eastbound on Orange Blossom Trail near Pleasant Hill Drive when 66 year old Kenneth Livingston of Kissimmee attempted to cross the Orange Blossom Trail using the marked crosswalk.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, Torres had a green light and fatally struck Livingston as he crossed the marked crosswalk.

Livingston was taken to Osceola Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The case remains under investigation.

When a terrible tragedy like this takes place, the driver can potentially be held responsible for the victim's death, including all expenses incurred for funeral preparations. A wrongful death lawsuit can sometimes be filed in civil court, and these charges can potentially be in addition to any criminal court charges that may be filed.

In these types of situations an experienced attorney can be extremely valuable in clarifying whether damages are appropriate and whether a wrongful death lawsuit is possible. Determining the amount of damages in these very sensitive situations should be left to an attorney that understands and has years of experience being an advocate for the people in the community.

Testimonials

I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
 
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
 
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
 
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
