Woman Killed after Falling under Bus at Airport

C.H., 68 years old, was killed recently in a tragic accident at the Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport. The woman was a passenger in a car being driven by a family member. They were arriving at the airport to pick up C.H.s husband who had just flown in. The vehicle was in an arrivals traffic lane at Terminal 4 when her husband was apparently spotted standing at the sidewalk. The car stopped in traffic and C.H. got out to greet her husband. Moments later, the woman was walking back to the vehicle and reportedly tripped. She fell into an adjacent traffic lane as a charter bus was passing and she was run over. She suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. No one else was injured and the incident did not cause any vehicle to vehicle collisions.

About Pedestrian Accidents

Clearly, the injuries can be severe when a pedestrian or someone on a bicycle is involved in an accident. When a car, truck or other vehicle strikes a person there can be broken bones, fractures, internal injuries, spinal injuries, head trauma, paralysis or even amputation. Severe brain injuries, as well as injuries to other parts of the body, can occur even when a cyclist is wearing a helmet. If you were hurt in an accident that was not your fault then you should consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as you can. If the driver who hit you was intoxicated, texting while driving (distracted driving), speeding, failed to yield or was otherwise negligent or careless then they may be legally liable for your injuries. If a reckless driver caused the death of a loved one then you may have a wrongful death case. In either circumstance, an attorney may be able to obtain compensation on your behalf from those responsible.
