Ex-NBA Player Alonzo Mourning Sued Over Miami-Dade Car Collision

A 21-year-old college student is seeking Miami, Florida personal injury damages from ex-Heat basketball star Alonzo Mourning. The former-NBA star had crashed his Porsche’s into William Candelario’s disabled car on the Julia Tuttle Causeway at around 3am on Sunday. Although Mourning stopped to make sure that Candelario was okay, rather than remain at the accident scene, he went home. It was then that he called police, and they told him to return to the crash site. Now, Candelario has filed a Miami Beach car accident lawsuit against Mourning, who he says should have stayed at the collision site and made sure he got medical help. It was just before the accident with the NBA star that Candelario was involved in another collision that left his vehicle disabled. Candelario’s Miami personal injury lawyer claims that his client sustained a concussion and experienced memory loss during the first crash, and, as a result, he had to receive emergency room treatment twice. Miami Car Accidents If you were hurt in a South Florida car crash, your injuries may be serious enough that you had to seek medical help, take time off work, or must now contend with serious damage to your car. Even though you likely have Florida’s Personal Injury Protection coverage, this may not be enough to cover all your costs, damages, and losses. It is important that you know that there may be legal avenues available to you to allow you to file a claim against the party or parties that may have caused or contributed to your accident or injuries occurring. For example, motorists involved in Miami Beach car crashes are supposed to stay at the scene, report the incident to the authorities, and if someone was hurt, then make sure the victim gets medical help. Leaving the car accident site without stopping is against the law, and not calling for emergency help when someone is hurt can cause a person’s injuries to become more serious than they could have been had he/she immediately received medical care. Obviously, each Miami personal injury case has its unique details, which is why it is important that you speak with an experienced law firm to find out whether you have a case. Obtaining any recovery you may be owed can help significantly—especially if you end up with costly medical and rehabilitation expenses or have to take time off from work and lose wages. Permanent injuries can be especially daunting if it means full-time nursing care and disabilities that can prevent you from holding a job or supporting your family.
