Accidents can happen anywhere and anytime, without any fault of yours or without any prior warning whatsoever. For example, an incident took place in front of Bayside Marketplace on the night of July 30, 2015. According to Miami police, a man was attempting to cross Biscayne Boulevard at Northeast Fourth Street when he was struck by a taxi. In a classic case of hit and run, the cab took off without stopping to check on the victim, who was left lying injured on the road. Police later recognized the taxi as Yellow Cab #532, with tag ACU E95. Security patrol recordings showed that, after hitting the man, the taxi continued to speed northwards. The cab was eventually discovered abandoned at 119th Street and Biscayne Boulevard.
Our team of Miami car accident lawyers are outraged by this heinous, reckless, and complete disregard for human life. If the driver of the cab is apprehended, there is probably a foundation to pursue punitive damages.
