LONGWOOD, Fla. — The family of an Uber passenger killed in a deadly crash involving a Seminole County sheriff’s patrol car has filed a negligence lawsuit against all of the parties involved.
According to the Seminole County Clerk of Courts, the lawsuit was filed by the family of Corey Allicock, 28, who was killed in the crash on Dec. 12.
More Florida Auto Accident Settlements
Being slammed head on with severe injuries on Interstate 4 was hard. Achieving a $950,000 settlement more than one year later was even harder, after the legal hand-to-hand combat and maneuverings of a local insurance company.
The settlement, achieved by well-known personal injury attorney Dan Newlin, of The Law Offices of Dan Newlin & Partners, was obtained on behalf of a client who sustained severe injuries when a vehicle ran a red light and slammed head on into the vehicle his client was driving on an Interstate 4 ramp in Seminole County.
Attorney Dan Newlin obtained a record-setting $100 million verdict on behalf of a teen who suffered severe brain damage and has remained in a coma since 2012. The case was tried last week in the Orange County Court before the Honorable Judge Donald Myers, Jr. The damages award includes payments for past and future medical care, punitive damages, pain and suffering for the teen, as well as emotional distress and loss of companionship for her mother, Alma Fletcher.
Dan Newlin Advocates for Victim’s Family
Dan Newlin of Newlin Law, and an Orange County jury sent a strong message to would-be murders that not only would they be held criminally liable for their actions, but also would be subject to civil judgments against them. On October 4, 2007, now slain Orlando police officer Alfred Gordon was gunned down and killed by Hugo Terry and Davin Smith in a robbery attempt following Gordon’s withdrawal of cash from a Bank of America ATM. The two suspects were arrested two days later and were subsequently charged and convicted of first degree murder. Both Terry and Smith are serving life sentences without chance for parole.
