When No Charges Are Filed

Wrongful Death Attorneys / Oviedo Lawyers / Motor Vehicle Accidents Sanford / Beers and Gordon P.A.On the day of the Ohio Primary last year, a multi-car pile up on the Combs-Hehl Bridge led to a tractor trailer hitting one of the cars over the edge. The horrifying scene, caught on video, show a car hurling end over end into the waters of the Ohio River below. But after a three month investigation, no charges were filed against Travis Harmon, the driver of the tractor trailer, since it appeared no undue distractions were in play. Moreover, reports suggested Harmon had collided with another car that disabled control over his steering, meaning that despite the horrors of the accident, no foulplay or misintentioned actions were to blame. But that conclusion offers no solace for the family of 32-year-old David Bouma, the driver of the submerged car.

Harmon is now, nearly a year later, being sued for wrongful death. The Bouma family does not appear to be seeking retribution or punishment as much as compensation for the unexpected loss of a loved one. And that is precisely what wrongful death means. David Bouma should not have died that day and it is within the right of a grieving family to seek after a resolution.
