Car-Accident-Lawyer-in-Miami-Perazzo-Law-300x200En Miami, los abogados de lesiones personales de Perazzo Law Firm comparten información sobre por qué es importante notificar a la policía después de un accidente de tráfico.

Después de un accidente que involucre vehículos de motor, ciclistas, conductores de patinetas motorizados o peatones, contactar a las autoridades para reportar el accidente es fundamental para determinar la culpa del accidente. Establecer la culpa de un accidente de tráfico es muy importante, no solo para el propietario del vehículo o las partes lesionadas, sino fundamental para el éxito de un posible reclamo de indemnización por parte del seguro, especialmente cuando hay lesiones personales involucradas.

WHY IS A POLICE REPORTING IMPORTANT AFTER AN ACCIDENT 

Car-Accident-Lawyer-in-Miami-Perazzo-Law-300x200

In Miami, the personal injury lawyers at the Perazzo Law Firm share insight on why it’s important to notify the police following a traffic accident.

After an accident involving motor vehicles, cyclists, scooter operators, or pedestrians, contacting the authorities to report the accident is fundamental for determining fault for the accident. Establishing fault for a traffic accident is highly important, not only for the vehicle owner or injured parties, but fundamental for the success of a potential insurance claim for compensation, especially when there are personal injuries involved.

CONCERNS OVER COVID SAFETY AT SEA

cruise-accident-lawyer-in-Miami-291x300The cruise industry has been one of the hardest hit by the seemingly never ending COVID pandemic, which has crippled the economies of almost every business except the pharmaceutical one. Despite vaccine passports and vaccination mandates by the Federal Government, concerns continue to escalate over the ability of cruise ship operators to deal with COVID outbreaks by passengers while onboard. However, and while it seems like we live in a world that revolves around the coronavirus, passengers still suffer other health related incidents which have nothing to do with COVID while on board a cruise ship.

If you, a friend, or relative has suffered personal injury or losses while onboard a cruise ship, contact the Perazzo Law Firm in Miami and North Miami Beach now for a FREE initial consultation.

The best car accident lawyers agree that most traffic accidents occur at intersections. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm’s staff of Personal Injury Lawyers understand intersection accidents and the sorts of injuries drivers and passenger suffer following a crash, which may include head-on, rear-end, and side collisions.

Car-Accident-Lawyer-in-Miami-Perazzo-Law-300x200THE PERAZZO LAW FIRM EXPLAINS INTERSECTION ACCIDENTS AND WHAT TO DO FOLLOWING A CRASH THAT LEADS TO INJURIES

Drivers that are either stopped at an intersection or approaching one, are equally at risk of being involved in a traffic accident. In Miami, Jonathan Perazzo, personal injury lawyer and founder at the Perazzo Law Firm, together with his staff, have ample experience dealing with accidents that occur at intersections, and most often those which suffer the greatest losses are those that were in no way at fault for the accident. For example, a driver maybe stopped at an intersection waiting for a red light to turn green. Suddenly, another driver may attempt a left-hand turn and crash  head-on into the motorist at the light. It happens. Stopped drivers are crashed into regularly while waiting for a green light at intersections, waiting to turn, and even with a steady green light. Sadly, intersection accidents such as these, usually result in physical injury, which most likely will require medical care, either through an evaluation of any injuries sustained in the accident, or physical therapy to treat the common injuries, such as cervical, thoracic, and lumbar injuries. The Perazzo Law Firm highly recommends that car accident victims, including passengers, contact their Miami-Dade law offices ONLINE immediately after an accident to help make sure medical bills are covered and the accident victim receives the treatment he or she deserves as compensation.

NO-FAULT INSURANCE (PIP) REFORM VETOED

Governor Ron DeSantis has brought relief to the insurance industry and its representatives after vetoing a bid to repeal Florida’s PIP auto insurance system through Bill 54, which many believe would have caused insurance rates to rise. The bill, which would have radically altered the current Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance system for motorists involved in car accidents, was set to replace PIP with Bodily Injury (BI) coverage and requirements. The aim of the bill was to also offer guidelines for handling bad-faith litigation when filing insurance claims for compensation after a car accident in which motorists or passengers suffer personal injury and require medical treatment. Fortunately for personal injury attorneys and medical providers, Governor DeSantis felt that the provisions were not enough to pass Bill 54 and revamp the current PIP system. DeSantis stated the following, “Senate Bill 54 does not adequately address the current issues facing Florida drivers and may have unintended consequences that would negatively impact both the market and consumers.” Though the decision comes as good news to some, insurance providers maintain that the reform measures fail to fully harness bad-faith maneuvers by personal injury lawyers when seeking compensation for their car accident victims, alleging that the claimant’s real losses are inaccurately calculated. In an email to Florida Record, Kyle Ulrich, president, and CEO of the Florida Association of Insurance Agents, stated the following, “there was too much uncertainty about the cost implications of SB 54, and its impacts on drivers in Florida who can least afford a premium increase.” Furthermore, a switch to mandatory BI from PIP would have potentially caused a dramatic rise in insurance premiums to Florida motorists carrying PIP, which would have ultimately led to many motor vehicle owners unable to afford any insurance at all. This would have led to an increase in uninsured motorists on Florida avenues, streets, and highways. This fact would have been terrible news for victims of car accidents unable to afford medical care to treat personal injury, without the possibility of filing an insurance claim against the driver at fault. In a nutshell, mandating that Florida motor vehicle owners spend more on insurance would have made no sense and would have led to many accident victims unable to receive medical treatment for injuries after a car accident. According to statistics provided by the PIFF, 20% of all Florida motor vehicle owners and operators do not carry auto insurance, with this being the result of an inability to afford the current insurance rates set by insurance providers and the insurance industry in Florida.
