According to a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, a crash involving two cars in Miami Gardens has taken the lives of three people and left a fourth person injured. The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash took place around 1am last night in Miami Gardens near the intersection of NW 2nd Avenue and 204th Street. According to a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, a woman driving a gray Nissan Altima was attempting to make a left turn when she turned directly into the path of a black Kia Sorento SUV. The driver of the Nissan Altima and her two passengers were killed instantly while the driver of the Kia Sorento was airlifted to a nearby hospital. The driver of the Nissan Altima was at fault for the crash because she turned into the path of the Kia which had the right of way. Those involved have so far not been identified. As in the case of all such accidents, Florida Highway Patrol will investigate further to see if drugs or alcohol contributed to the accident. NW 2nd Avenue was shut down for several hours while officers conducted their investigation. No further details have been released.

Injuries from traffic accidents can range from minor injuries to very serious injuries.
For instance, car accident injuries can range from bruises, contusions, sprains, broken bones all the way to more serious and long-term injuries such as disfigurement, amputations, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Almost all these injuries may prevent a person from returning to work as usual and with mounting medical expenses, it becomes important to hire an attorney who can help you determine if lost wages or loss earnings damages are available to you as part of your personal injury claim. Calculating the amount of compensation can get challenging and having legal counsel to assist is crucial.
Compiling Evidence of Your Injury.
To prove fault in a car accident case, an investigation must be done. An investigation may involve obtaining evidence to prove that the other driver was responsible for the car accident. Sometimes, an expert witness such as an accident reconstructionist must be hired. An attorney who understands the law and who can properly use the law to advocate for your interests is important.
Negotiating a settlement of your injury claim.
As you may already know, most car accident cases settle before trial. A skilled car accident lawyer can help you fully understand your settlement options and the consequences of executing a settlement release agreement. Hiring an attorney is one of the best ways to make sure you obtain the best possible resolution of your claim and ensure that you are aware of everything that you may be entitled to receive.
