Teen Fatally Struck by Car After Leaving Orlando McDonald's

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

 

An 18-year-old man was fatally struck by a car after leaving a McDonald's restaurant in Orlando, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the man left the restaurant and attempted to cross the street at Orange Blossom Trail and La Quinta Drive around 1:15 a.m. when he was hit by a Chevy Camaro going south on Orange Blossom Trail.

The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to a local hospital, where he later died, troopers said.

According to the FHP, the man was not within a crosswalk when he was struck by the car.

Troopers have not said if the driver will face charges. The crash remains under investigation.

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.

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
