West Palm Beach Man Dies from Motor Vehicle Crash Injuries in Florida

The Florida Highway Patrol says that Kevin Bunsie, the 32-year-old man who was injured in a car crash on the afternoon of July 12 at the junction of Forest Hill Boulevard and Congress Avenue, has died of his injuries. Bunsie passed away on July 31.

If you or someone you love is seriously injured in a motor vehicle crash, you should contact our South Florida car crash lawyers and ask for your free case evaluation. Many motor vehicle collisions happen because at least one motorist was negligent on the road. While a person cannot control other drivers and their actions, there are preemptive steps a motorist can take to avoid collisions.

Suggestions offered by Property Casualty of America include:

• Do not talk on the cell phone while driving.
• Do not drive after drinking alcohol.
• Keep a safe driving distance between you and other vehicles.
• Make sure that your vehicle is up-to-date on all required maintenance checks.
• Check your side and rear view mirrors frequently.
• Drive defensively.
• Ignore the actions of rude or obnoxious drivers.
• Drive defensively.
• Obey all traffic laws.
• Cross intersections carefully.
• Adjust your driving to the changing road conditions.

While Florida’s mandatory PIP (Personal Injury Protection) coverage offers some insurance protection, it may not cover all your injury costs. Our West Palm Beach car crash lawyers can work to help you obtain the maximum recovery possible.
