Fiery Crash in Miami Lakes Closes all Palmetto Expressway Lanes

According to a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, a major crash involving a  car fire caused a traffic nightmare on the Palmetto Expressway early Tuesday in Miami  Lakes. All lanes on the Palmetto Expressway near Northwest 154th Street were closed  in both directions, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. It caused heavy traffic in the  area during morning rush hour. Troopers say a driver that was traveling north on the  expressway lost control of their vehicle and drove over the center concrete median barrier  wall, colliding with three other cars that were headed southbound. The vehicle then  caught fire. This happened early in the morning just before 7am. Several drivers were  flown by helicopter to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center with non-life threatening injuries. No other information was immediately available.

In today’s fast paced society, no matter how careful you are when driving, there is always  a high chance that you will be involved in a car accident due to someone else’s  negligence. If being hurt in a car accident isn’t bad enough, the way you are sometimes  treated by the insurance companies and their attorneys can sometimes be even more  difficult to deal with. My experience is that insurance companies will try their best to deny  or reduce the value of your claim. Even when they are legally required to pay your claim, they will delay doing so if they can. You must remember that insurance companies are in the business of making money and they are not trying to pay out on claims if they can  avoid it. It is important to be prepared and ready before an accident happens so that your  actions after the fact can make the difference in your personal injury claim. Knowing the  next steps to take after you or someone you love has been involved in a car accident is  key to protecting your legal rights and safeguarding your right to compensation.

Common Car Accident FAQ’s

Should I get medical treatment after a crash? Should I receive medical treatment after  an accident? You should always seek medical attention after being involved in a car  accident, even if you believe you have not been injured. Often, a person experiences an  adrenaline rush after a car accident.
