Posted by: DFX on Feb 05, 2016

PedestrianSafety is imperative on the roads of Miami. Auto accidents are far too prevalent. Even the safest driver needs the proper legal protection to make sure he/she isn’t injured both physically and financially. Not being compensated for your damages can hurt you and cause generational financial hardship. Of course, the first priority is the physical injury. Whether you are in a car or a pedestrian walking the streets, Miami can be a particularly dangerous place. Consider a recent article for WSVN titled “2 pedestrians struck in Miami after car crash.”

The author of the article writes, “Two women were hospitalized after a two cars collided in Miami, Monday morning. The driver of a black sedan was possibly heading the wrong way, according to officials, and crashed into another car before spinning out of control. The vehicle then hit a light pole and injured two pedestrians standing near the pole before coming to a stop. The accident happened at the intersection of Northeast First Avenue and 11th Street, in front of a large group of witnesses. ‘Yeah, he was just out of control, it looked,’ said one witness, Eric Landau, ‘and I’m pretty sure he hit another car first, and he was trying to flee the other car, I believe. Then he hit a pedestrian.’ Officials said  two witnesses kept the the driver from running off. The pedestrians who were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in serious but stable condition. They remain hospitalized Monday afternoon.”
