There are few roads in Miami that cover the area that Le Jeune Road does. Starting in the south, it begins in Coral Gables and travels to Miami, then Miami Springs, to Hialeah and further to Opa-Locka. Le Jeune Road is believed to be named for a gentleman from Belgium named Charles Le Jeune who purchased 140 acres of land that consisted mostly of coral rock in Miami around 1900. He used dynamite on the coral rock to create fertile land and eventually planted citrus groves. Interestingly, Charles Le Jeune sold those groves for 1.7 million dollars in 1914 to George Merrick who developed Coral Gables, Florida.
Le Jeune Road in its present form intersects with several major roads including US 1 (also known as Dixie Highway); SR 836 (known as the Dolphin Expressway) and Okeechobee Road. It also operates as the main eastside thoroughfare of Miami International Airport (MIA). Lejeune Road is also known as West 42 Avenue in Miami; East 8th Avenue in Hialeah; and as SR 953. It is approximately 16.3 miles long.
As local residents and tourists can attest, Le Jeune is a very busy and congested road. Few traffic reports in the media neglect to mention the traffic conditions on “Le Jeune”. Buses, cars, trucks, motorcycles as well as Uber and Lyft drivers and passengers keep the road busy 24 hours a day 7 days a week. As everyone knows, where there is traffic there are car accidents.Le Jeune Road Car Accident Attorneys in Miami
Car accidents can happen in rush hour, during the day or anytime at night. It is just of question of when it happens to you and what you should do after a car accident in Miami. Our Le Jeune Car Accident Lawyers can help but only if you call them at (305) 285-1115 for a free consultation.
You are not required to hire a Miami personal injury lawyer to help you after an accident. You can try to do it by yourself. But understand this – the other driver won’t help you and neither will that driver’s insurance company. At the very moment of impact you are in an adversarial situation and you should understand this before deciding to represent yourself.
Many insurance companies have a method of operation that they will never admit. It is “Deny, Delay, Don’t Pay” all claims. Different insurance companies apply this motto to different degrees but none of them are giving money away. If you have medical bills you will need to prove that those bills are reasonable in the amount; necessary for the treatment of your car accident injury on Le Jeune Road; and that the injury itself is related to the car accident. You will need to process your medical bills through your own PIP (Personal Injury Protection) before trying to get the other driver’s insurance to pay anything.
The same thing applies to lost wages and loss of earning capacity. If you want it, then you need to prove it. But you may need to process your claim through your PIP insurance first.
To recover anything you will need to prove that the other driver broke a safety rule and caused you harms and losses. Under Florida law, each driver has a duty to exercise reasonable care in the operation of their car. If they breach (or break) this duty then they are responsible for the injuries and damages caused by their negligence.
But there are hurdles to making a full recovery. If you hope to recover for your pain and suffering you will likely need to prove that you have a permanent and significant scar or a permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability by a specific burden of proof. In the case of most car accidents on Le Jeune Road your burden will be “greater weight of the evidence” meaning more right than wrong. Again, our Le Jeune Road Car Accident Attorneys deal with proving cases and the burden of proof each and every day.
If you have a minor impact soft tissue claim, the insurance companies have a list of defenses and strategies to pay you as little as possible. Our Le Jeune Road Car Accident Attorneys in Miami deal with these cases and those insurance companies on a daily basis. We negotiate, litigate and when necessary go to trial against negligent drivers and their insurance companies. Sometimes it takes a jury to tell the insurance company to do the right thing.
If you want to handle the aftermath of your car accident on Le Jeune Road you are free to do so. But you should at least inform yourself before trying to represent yourself.
