Personal injury claims could aid those injured in car accidents

Driving while intoxicated can lead to serious accidents. In turn, this can result in severe injuries for those involved. Knowing that these injuries could have been easily avoided if the responsible driver stayed off the roadways makes these collisions even more devastating. Two Florida police officers may have grounds to file personal injury claims after they were injured in a recent accident believed to be caused by intoxication.

The collision occurred at an intersection in the early morning hours of May 28. Police reports indicate that the two officers were driving south on a local road when another driver headed north in the southbound lane struck their vehicle. Authorities say either alcohol or drugs may have led to the crash, though they are still investigating.

The impact of the crash badly damaged both vehicles, and the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue had to disentangle one of the officers from the patrol car. Both officers were taken to area hospitals with severe injuries, with one of the men being airlifted. The driver thought responsible was also treated at the hospital for injuries.

The injuries these officers suffered may provide grounds for them to file individual personal injury lawsuits against the driver who caused the collision. Should their claims succeed in civil court, they could be awarded monetary damages that could help pay for medical bills and any other expenses related to the incident. Any Florida resident interested in learning more could consult an experienced personal injury attorney for more information about personal injury claims.
