Parents Sue Driver For Killing Children on Mini-Golf Course

Most people don’t expect to be struck by a vehicle while playing mini-golf, but that is exactly what two children experienced in Panama City Beach back in 2020. Unfortunately, these children did not survive the crash — and now their parents are suing multiple parties for alleged negligence. But does this lawsuit have any chance of success? What can you do if your loved one has lost their life in a pedestrian accident? Let’s find out:

Family Seeks Justice After Fatal Mini-Golf Crash

On February 8th of 2023, it was reported that the parents of two deceased children were suing numerous parties they say caused the crash. The crash occurred in 2020, and the family was playing a round of mini-golf in Panama City Beach. The incident involved the driver veering off the road and crashing into the mini-golf area, striking and killing the children.

According to the police report, the driver had no alcohol in his system. His crash seems to have been caused by a seizure that made it impossible for him to control the vehicle. A further investigation has determined that this isn’t the whole story, however. It seems as though this driver has a history of suffering seizures while behind the wheel. Not only that, but he seems to have a history of alcohol abuse.

The parents now believe that this driver’s doctor downplayed the risk posed by his seizures. Prescribing him medication and signing off on official documents stating that he was medically fit to drive. The parents are therefore suing the doctor, the driver, and the restaurant staff that served him alcohol while aware of his alcohol-induced seizures.

Why Should You Consider a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

If you have lost a loved one in a crash, there are a number of reasons why you should consider a wrongful death lawsuit. First of all, it can provide you with a settlement that covers your medical expenses, missed future earnings, and any other economic damages you suffered a result of the crash. For example, your loved one might have received expensive treatment on their deathbed, and they may have been the primary wage-earner in the family. A wrongful death lawsuit can also provide you with compensation for the non-economic, emotional damages associated with losing a loved one.
