Case #: 174**56
Miami-Dade County. A vehicle was traveling east on NW 7th Street approaching NW 17th Avenue in the left turn lane when it struck our client who was crossing the street on foot with the aid of a walking stick. Our client, who suffered injuries to his face, was accused of causing minor damages to the vehicle. When the police arrived, because they saw a nearby crosswalk, decided to ticket our client for illegal use of a walking stick. Our attorneys expressed outrage at the issuing of such a ticket and pointed out errors in the ticket itself. As a result, and with the support of the Judge, the State Attorney reluctantly dismissed the charges.
