Even Officers Need to Pay Close Attention While Driving In Miami

Posted by: DFX on Oct 02, 2015

police-935279_1280The roads of Miami can be dangerous, no matter who is driving. Even if you are a police officer, you can find yourself in the crosshairs of an auto accident. In the event that something like this happens, you need the proper legal representation. Otherwise, you are looking at two injuries. The first injury happens to your body. The injury that has the potential to last even longer is the one to your finances. Paying for the damages caused by someone else can cripple you and the opportunities you are able to afford your family. Consider a recent article for CBS Miami titled “Officer Hit While Helping In I-95 Accident.”

Giovanna Maselli of CBS Miami writes, “A car slammed into a Miami Police officer helping after a crash on I-95 sending him to the hospital early Thursday morning. Miami Police said the officer was hit while he was in his patrol car around 4:30 a.m. It is unclear if the driver of the car who crashed into the officer’s vehicle is facing charges. As of 9 a.m., the officer had been taken to Ryder Trauma Center and was expected to be heading home soon. He was described as being ‘banged up.’ The officer was assisting in a traffic accident that happened near I-95 and 62nd Street.”

As this article indicates, you never know when an accident can be heading your way. It’s in your best interest to make sure you are prepared for that unfortunate situation.
