The accident occurred early in the morning on September 12th around 3:00 a.m. at the intersection of Northwest Third Avenue and 14th Street in Miami. According to officials, the police officer was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital with a serious head injury. Following an investigation into the two-vehicle crash, a woman was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. Neither the woman nor the officer have been identified at this time. The circumstances surrounding the accident are unknown. No additional details are immediately available. Our thoughts go out to the injured officer in this Miami accident.

Florida is one of the most dangerous states in the nation for motorists. Drunk driving is one of the most reckless forms of negligent driving in which a driver can engage. These types of crashes are unacceptable but are unfortunately common across South Florida every year. At Suarez & Montero Car Accident Lawyers, we believe that traffic deaths and serious injuries are preventable and unacceptable. For us, the only acceptable highway safety goal should be zero serious injuries and fatalities. Being involved in a serious car crash can be devastating for the victim, and even the victim’s family and friends for many reasons. For one, it can create the financial burden of having to pay for medical expenses, vehicle repairs and the like. It can be especially difficult when the person who is injured cannot work as this reduces the amount of income available to pay for these expenses. Escalating medical expenses not covered by insurance and lost wages due to hospitalization and injury adds another layer of stress to the equation. By seeking an attorney to help you obtain compensation for your damages, you can help ease the stress of dealing with the aftermath of a car accident including some of the financial difficulties that come along with an accident. If you sustained serious injuries in a car accident or lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver in a car crash, you may have the right to obtain compensation for your loss and to sue for damages under Florida law. Generally speaking, you are allowed to file a personal injury liability claim and a property damage liability claim to recover your losses. Each of these types of claims might compensate you for a variety of expenses and loss, but the specifics vary based on each situation You may also be eligible for compensation under Florida’s Crime Victim Compensation Act. To be eligible, a person must be a victim of a crime, an intervenor, a surviving spouse, parent, guardian, sibling, or child of a deceased victim or intervenor to be eligible for the relief afforded by the Crime Victim’s Compensation Act. A victim also includes a person who suffers personal physical injury or death as a direct result of a crime and a person younger than 18 years of age who was present at the scene of a crime, saw or heard the crime, and suffered a psychiatric or psychological injury because of the crime but who was not physically injured. Victims must suffer personal physical injury or death as the result of a crime, must fully cooperate with law enforcement, the State Attorney’s Office, and must not have been engaged in an unlawful activity at the time of the crime. A crime in this context is defined as a felony or misdemeanor offense committed by an adult or a juvenile that results in physical injury or death including a violation of Fla. Stat. § 316.193 (Driving under the influence) or Fla. Stat. § 316.193 (hit and run).
