Tragic Accident Claims the Life of Four

Miami-Dade County has the third largest population in the U.S., which still makes Miami a busy city of almost 2.6 million residents. People are in a hurry to go everywhere, and this adds to overpopulated Florida streets and makes them even more dangerous. Last year, 43,670 vehicle accidents were reported in Miami-Dade and 24,000 in Broward. Many drivers are in rushing while teens are texting while driving. Miami injury lawyers represent many thousands who have been injured or lost their lives in car accidents in this area.Accidents happen needlessly, which is exactly what happened in this tragic accident on Okeechobee Rd. right before Christmas. All four were killed in this tragic accident, but if an auto accident happens to you, schedule a free consultation with a skilled Miami car accident injury lawyer.A Miami Auto Accident Lawyer is aware of the high number of accidents caused by distracted drivers, construction accidents and drunk drivers. With over six million motor vehicle accidents occurring in the U.S. every year, over half of those end in serious injuries or death. Statistics report 40,000 accidents annually result in death, which means a Florida Injury Lawyer would be needed to obtain full compensation for the loss.The accident on Okeechobee Rd. is one of those accidents that has devastated a family and a complete neighborhood. There is very little traffic along this stretch of Okeechobee Rd. and excessive speed is common.

The victims, father and son, and the father and a little 6 year old girl, who was called an “angel” by the entire community, were traveling home. Their 2003 Honda Civic was hit head on when a speeding 2003 BMW lost control of his car, crossed the median at a high speed and rammed into the Honda head-on. Their vehicle went up in flames on impact.

One of the FTP Troopers on the scene, Officer Sanchez, remarked that “Gonzalez was obviously traveling at a high rate of speed.” He said the accident was a tragedy, and It is devastating when anyone is killed, but when a child looses their life, it’s heartbreaking.” Seeking an experienced Miami Injury Lawyer is the only recourse in obtaining justice, but nothing can replace a human life.

In a horrific case like this, a skilled Miami Accident Injury Attorney has both the compassion to understand the injuries and the skill to recover the loss. If you or someone you know has been involved in a vehicle crash of any type, contact a Florida Injury Lawyer.
