West Broward Accident Shows the Need for Quality Legal Protection

Posted by: DFX on Sep 18, 2015

accident-734594_1280When we hear of fatal car accidents where there were also injuries, naturally, our minds focus on the worst part of the story, death. However, those injured have huge, life-altering hurdles to climb and without proper legal representation, their nightmare could potentially last forever. Consider a recent article for WSNV titled “Wrong-way wreck in West Broward leaves 4 dead, 1 injured.”

According to the author of the article, “Four people were killed and one person was seriously injured after a head-on collision in West Broward, Tuesday night. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, at around 9:30 p.m., Tuesday, two vehicles collided on the northbound lanes of U.S. 27, just north of Interstate 75. FHP Sgt. Mark Wysocky said there were five people inside the cars, one inside a white 2009 Volvo S80 and four in a 2001 Toyota Sequoia. ‘We are investigating a head-on collision with four confirmed fatalities at this time,’ he said… Authorities said three of the victims in the Sequoia also died on the scene. Those victims were 62-year-old Daisy Zayas, 63-year-old Ines Zayas Pena and 67-year-old Hermis Ruiz. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesperson Mike Jachles said crews located the fifth victim, 69-year-old Minerio Ruiz Torres, outside of the SUV. ‘Our firefighters encountered him, he was walking around, he was in a state of shock,’ he said. Jachles said Ruiz Torres was conscious and alert when he was airlifted to Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach. ‘He apparently suffered some knee injuries, some possible internal injuries,’ he said. ‘By the nature of the crash, he was considered what we call a trauma alert.’”
