MIAMI, Fla. /New York Netwire/ — The Opa-Locka Florida police chase that resulted in a head-on collision with multiple fatalities on I-95 this past April has prompted the filings of two alleged wrongful death lawsuits by the families’ attorney Edward R. Blumberg.
The families of victims Albertson Almase and sister Kristina have filed multiple count lawsuits in the Miami-Dade County Circuit Court naming – among others – the Opa-Locka Florida police officer, Sergio Perez, involved in the fatal chase.
At the time of the crash, Albertson Almase was in the United States Navy and his sister Kristina Almase was a registered nurse. Besides their surviving parents, Kristina Almase leaves behind a four year old daughter.
“Although we cannot bring Albertson and Kristina back, these lawsuits will provide some closure for the families,” according to the families’ attorney Edward R. Blumberg of Miami.
“These lawsuits highlight the dangers to the public of high speed police chases on busy Miami-Dade County roadways.”
