Our Miami car accident attorneys report on a recent and horrific crash in Miami that killed one and sent seven others to the hospital. The accident occurred when one vehicle was making a left hand turn and another was headed straight on Northwest Seventh Street. One vehicle was left on its side from the force of the collision. Miami Fire Rescue vehicles rushed to the scene and a total of eight people were transported to the hospital. Two of those transported included an elderly couple. The older man driving the Nissan that was making a left hand turn died at the hospital. Six teenagers, ranging in age from 17 to 19, were also transported, with two being severely injured.
Personal Injury Claims
If you are injured in an accident and believe the other driver or drivers acted in a negligent manner to cause it, you can file a personal injury claim. Typically, personal injury victims can seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering stemming from the accident. Accident victims who are seriously injured in an accident and will experience long term disability or other effects due to their injuries could be entitled to additional compensation. Disabled accident victims may receive long term future medical expenses, loss of income for future years, rehabilitation expenses, and more. Those injured in a car accident will need to seek the assistance of an experienced Miami car accident attorney who will evaluate their injuries and determine the best course of action to recover the funds you deserve.
Wrongful Death Claims
Losing a loved one in a car accident is devastating and can leave a family both emotionally and financially crippled. The family members of those killed in a car accident can seek financial compensation from the negligent, at-fault driver for their loss. In Florida, the survivors of deceased accident victims can seek damages for lost support and services, mental pain and suffering, loss of the decedent’s companionship and protection, lost parental guidance, companionship, and instruction, and any medical or funeral expenses paid by the survivor.
The decedent’s estate can additionally seek compensation for the decedent’s lost earnings, loss of net accumulations, and funeral or medical expenses. These values can be hard to calculate. As such, anyone who has lost a loved one in a car accident will need the assistance of a Miami car accident lawyer. Your lawyer will evaluate the accident and help you to put dollar figures to the hard to quantify loss you have experienced.
