High speed alleged in fatal Miami-Dade collision

When a loved one is killed in a fatal accident, it is always devastating for those left behind. A recent accident in Miami-Dade was particularly tragic: three family members on their way to dinner were killed, including a man who left behind a woman he was going to marry.

According to law enforcement authorities, the accident occurred on a Sunday evening earlier this month when a 2006 Chevy Impala struck a Toyota Corolla at the intersection of 119th Street and Northwest 17th Avenue. Three passengers in the Toyota were killed instantly. Family members of the victims say police told them the Impala was going 110 miles per hour before the collision.

The 32-year-old driver of the Impala survived with non-life-threatening injuries. The 55-year-old man who was driving the Toyota survived with a broken wrist and was taken by air to a local hospital.

When a person is killed in an accident caused by the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person, Florida law allows the victim's next-of-kin to seek monetary damages through a wrongful death lawsuit. The family can recover compensation for loss of financial support, funeral expenses, loss of companionship and other losses.

No amount of financial compensation can bring back a lost loved one or heal the emotional wounds caused by a fatal car crash. But when the death is caused by someone's irresponsible conduct, family members need to see that the person responsible is held legally accountable. And a sudden death in a fatal accident can cause serious economic distress to a family, especially if they depended on the victim for financial support. In these situations, a wrongful death lawsuit is a step that a family should seriously consider.
