Willam “Rowdy” Harrell and his wife were killed in a Florida Keys auto accident while on their honeymoon. Harrell was a NASCAR pit crew member. The thirty-year-old man was a tire carrier for Hendrick Motorsports. His wife, twenty-three-year-old Blakely Harrell, died several days after their wedding that occurred last weekend. Before Harrell joined NASCAR, he was a middle linebacker for the University of Alabama’s football team.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Harrell’s Toyota Corolla crashed with a Ford pick-up on US Highway 1 on Lower Matecumbe Key. The truck driver had minor injuries.
Harrell worked for Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 88 team for eight seasons, mostly for driver Alex Bowman. Hendrick Motorsports said that Harrell was a two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series champion pit crew member with JR Motorsports.
Suffering from a car accident can be a traumatic experience for many people. The injuries may take a while to heal, but the pain and suffering may remain for life. Losing dear people in such circumstances can be even harsher. However, once it’s determined who was at fault, the family of the victims may take legal actions and file a lawsuit against the liable driver.
Your attorney would review your case and will gather the evidence. Your medical expenses should be covered by a suitable settlement. However, the insurance company might not be so eager to pay a big amount. Remember that you aren’t supposed to accept the first offer. The negotiation process is necessary in such cases until the insurers offer you a satisfying offer.
Many victims believe that they can do this on their own, without realizing that their lack of legal knowledge and experience can only bring them a lower settlement. If you need legal support from experienced Florida car accident attorneys, Winters & Yonker are at your service.
