Injured University of Miami student hires Alex Perkins to be his Miami Car Accident Lawyer.
A seriously injured University of Miami student was glad he hired Miami car accident lawyer Alex Perkins who settled his claim in just a few short months. This past summer, University of Miami theatre student, Josh, was walking to the Coral Gables campus from his house, when he was suddenly struck by a car while legally crossing the street in the marked pedestrian crosswalk. Josh was hit from his left side by the vehicle which was being driven by a woman without a driver’s license and who was careless and not paying attention. The violent impact caused Josh him to be thrown onto the hood and windshield and then propelled into the air and into a tree ten feet away. He was rendered unconscious, suffered a concussion, multiple broken bones, a collapsed lung, renal contusion, and lacerations in his head requiring staples. The force of the impact was so great that his body made a dent in A-frame pillar, fender and side view mirror. His hair was left in the broken windshield. Miraculously, Josh survived and did not require any major surgery. But he and his family quickly realized they needed to call a Miami car accident lawyer.
