Willful Car Collisions in Miami-Dade County

The news over the past few years has been filled with stories from across the country of people who intentionally have driven into groups of people or who have intentionally hit others with their car. Most recently, such an event took place at a holiday parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin and tragically some victims of the attack are still losing their lives due to their injuries.

When we think of car crashes, we usually think of “accidents,” where someone was reckless but did not truly consider harming anyone. Collisions where someone drives into pedestrians on purpose are frightening and cause severe trauma.

Such collisions may be more likely to cause injury. In a typical car collision, a driver may have time to try to avoid the collision. In a vehicular attack, the perpetrator is typically intentionally trying to harm as many people as possible. In a large crowd, secondary injuries can occur if the crowd panics. Emergency responders may even have a hard time reaching the injured if there are multiple injuries and the scene is an active investigation scene, which can further delay treatment for those that need it.

Have You Been Injured By a Driver Who Hit You on Purpose?  

Intentional attacks using a car can result in head injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, emotional trauma, and other serious injuries. Often, these incidents and the injuries or fatalities they cause change families and communities permanently. Those who survive may be permanently injured and are often left with many questions.

If you are injured in an attack involving a car crashing into pedestrians, your first priority will be to get medical help and get to safety. In the days and weeks following the attack, you may be contacted by police as they launch an investigation and by media as they report on the situation. You may need to miss work due to your injuries and may find your everyday life significantly affected.

Criminal charges are often laid in these cases, but if you have been injured by a driver who negligently or intentionally caused an accident, you may also have a civil claim. You can launch a civil claim regardless of the criminal case. Even if charges aren’t filed against the at-fault driver and even if he or she is not found guilty, you may still be able to file a claim to seek compensation for lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, medical bills, and other losses.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
