Five Injured in One-Vehicle Crash in SW Miami-Dade

Crash in SW Miami-Dade

Five people ended up in a hospital after a one-vehicle crash in SW Miami-Dade on the morning of January 2.

Miami-Dade Police responded to a vehicle accident in the area of SW 128th Street and 137th Avenue. A four-door Infiniti was wrecked and damaged after hitting a palm tree. 

One adult man and four juveniles were traveling in the car and all of them were injured in the crash. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue took the injured to Kendal Regional Medical Center and Jackson South Medical Center.

The reasons for the crash in SW Miami-Dade were not immediately clear. The palm tree was partially covering the roadway and was visible.  According to a Miami-Dade police spokesman, the investigation continues, and there isn’t further information available.

After an accident, the injured victim has the right to seek a compensation claim for their damages and injuries. No matter how minor the injuries and damages are, you shouldn’t hesitate to do this.

It’s important to know that seeking the claim doesn’t always go smoothly. Insurance companies won’t just give you a high amount; it’s their job to offer a low offer or even deny the claim.

Although you can seek compensation on your own, it’s better to have legal assistance in this process. Many people who seek their settlement often act fast and accept the first offer (even though it’s much lower than they deserve). Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company until they offer a reasonable amount. This money should cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages that resulted in the accident. Depending on the severity of the injuries and the seriousness of the accident, the medical bills may be incredibly high; this amount may be too high for you to cover it from your savings.
