On Saturday, February 19, 2022, around 1:10 p.m., a helicopter crashed into the water near South Beach, causing two individuals on board to be hospitalized. On 10th Street, Miami Beach police and fire rescue were dispatched to a helicopter crash. The helicopter crash-landed, causing a tremendous splash, into the frequented seas along South Beach’s beach, according to video released by Miami Beach police. Two of the three helicopter travelers are in “stable condition” after being brought to the neighboring Jackson Memorial Hospital, according to an announcement from the Miami Beach Police Department. The third passenger walked away from the accident without needing to be sent to the hospital. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was dispatched to the area to investigate alongside the National Transportation Safety Board, and two streets around the beach were blocked down by police. According to the FAA, the circumstances surrounding the incident are now “unknown.” The footage appeared to show the helicopter (Robinson R44) losing engine power, according to Mary Schiavo, the former inspector general of the US Department of Transportation. She said that, based on the footage, it looked like the pilot was able to guide the helicopter away from people on the beach even as it was falling. However, the aviation authority announced that it, together with the National Transportation Safety Board, will examine the tragedy.

Car accidents can result in significant injuries, and the amount of no-fault coverage required by Florida may be insufficient to cover your injuries. You may be able to get compensation for your medical costs, property damage, and pain and suffering if you file a personal injury claim. Are you still dealing with the financial impact of your accident? As a result, any damage, stress, or financial crisis caused by an accident must be addressed seriously and handled by skilled legal counsel.

Florida Governor, Rick Scott, made a significant move recently by signing three claim bills that have monumental consequences to those involved. These are three bills relating to negligence claims that required the at fault parties to compensate the victims.

One of the bills , named HB 965, forces the Lee County Hospital to pay Aaron Edwards almost $15 million for permanent injuries. Edwards suffered permanent injuries to his brain during his birth in 1997 at the facility. Significant hospital errors during his delivery have left him confined to a wheelchair and without speech.

Yet another bill approved by Scott requires payment to Eric Brody. Brody also suffered severe brain damage after an auto accident with a Broward County Sheriff Officer who was at fault. Brody is to receive almost 11 million dollars.

The third bill relates to the notorious Rachel Hoffman case. Hoffman, a 23 year old student at Florida State University, agreed to act as an informant for the Tallahassee police. In what appears to be a drug sting gone array, the young lady was murdered. Her parents then filed a wrongful death claim against the city, payment for which was approved by the Governor.

Our Florida Governor did, however veto a separate bill awarding $1.4 million to an amputee. Don Brown lost his leg in an auto accident with a Sumter school bus. The Governor, believed the award to be excessive.

As a Personal injury lawyer I would like to remind the readers of this article that these damages that have been awarded are minor reflections of the true loss suffered by the injury victims. It is because, as an attorney, I understand this, that I fight for maximum money and benefits for each and every client.
