Family files wrongful death lawsuit in Tampa for young child – please be safe during the holidays

Categories:Law in Florida

Back in April of this year, a young girl, Zhanaye Williams, was killed while trapped under a gate outside the apartment complex where she and her family lived. It was a tragic accident to say the least.

As reported on TampaBay.com, her family, as of October 3rd, has filed a Wrongful Death Lawsuit against the apartment complex for failing to maintain the premises or correct dangerous conditions.

It was noted that her and a couple of other children, one of which was her older brother, Christian Williams, 9, were playing on the fence outside and swinging Zhanaye back and forth on the fence when the accident occurred.

We urge you to please keep a close eye on your children, especially during this time of year because families are more likely to get together and celebrate the holidays and children are adventurous at heart so it is common for them to get into things that could cause them harm if not guided or watched by an adult.

Take care during this holiday season and be safe!
