Miami residents understand how important it is to drive safely. When drivers engage in dangerous behavior, they risk their lives and the lives of every person they meet on the road. Accidents caused by negligent drivers continue to occur in Florida, hurting hundreds of families each year.

A tragic accident recently occurred in Oakland Park. A speeding and out-of-control driver went over the railroad tracks on Commercial Boulevard, lost control of the car and went airborne. The driver crashed into another car going the opposite direction and grazed another car. The driver of the car that was crashed into was an Uber driver with a passenger in his car. The driver was taken to a local hospital, where he died. The Uber driver’s passenger suffered serious injuries and was also taken to a local hospital. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office stated that the two vehicles collided with such force that the engine of the speeding driver was separated from the vehicle.

Unfortunately, many families have been affected by a serious car accident caused by a negligent driver. These accidents are entirely preventable in many cases. If a family has been affected by an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to get more information about personal injury legal options to review the circumstances surrounding the accident and get answers as to what happened.

No one expects their loved one will be the victim of a serious car accident. Unfortunately, when drivers engage in dangerous driving behavior, they can cause a serious accident involving death. The victims of these accidents may have the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible.
