Major Crash Kills One and Injures Others

A major crash in nearby Sunrise is a wake-up call to the reality that reckless and careless driver can cause serious harm. The incident, which happened towards the end of March, took place at a T-shaped intersection with traffic signals, an area where drivers have been known to rush through.

“That’s a corner where, at night, when the lights turn green you go (but) people don’t slow down,” says Officer Browning-Smith.

What Can Happen?

In the case above, investigators have not yet determined exactly what happened. We know that there was a three-vehicle collision and that the driver of a Honda was killed. Two others were ejected from a pickup truck and injured. A fourth person sustained minor injuries.

We know that not all vehicle crashes are caused because a driver was careless or negligent. However, there are times when a driver needs to be held accountable for their irresponsible behavior.

For the latest reporting year in Florida, there were over 400,000 vehicle crashes. Out of those, there were 3,116 fatalities and 254,310 injuries.

It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of a vehicle crash:

  • Spinal cord injuries (with possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Insurance companies are notorious for not offering enough in a settlement to cover all of a person’s crash-related expenses, even if they were not at fault. Aside from medical costs, a victim often encounters other hidden costs associated with crashes. These can include:

  • Cost of rehabilitation or therapy
  • Any necessary in-home medical care or equipment
  • Necessary home or vehicle accommodations
  • Lost income if a victim cannot work
  • Emotional or psychological damage

Is it fair that a crash victim or their family has to bear these costs alone?

We know that so many vehicle crashes are preventable. Some of the most common cause of injuries are due to the following:

  • Impaired drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Reckless driving
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Following too closely

When another driver causes injuries, they should be held accountable for their actions.
