Trucker Rest Stop Snooze Turns into Nightmare

Florida Rest Stop Robbery? While driving a refrigerated box truck along Interstate 75, a drowsy Florida truck driver had the peace of mind to pull over to catch some zees at a rest stop. Sadly, what he caught was a beating by two individuals that apparently set out to rob both him and his cool cargo. After being dragged out his cab half asleep amid the morning dew, he was not only severely beaten but also shot in the shoulder, according to his testimony and reports from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. Thus far, investigators have been able to verify that the truck cargo area had been searched by the aggressors, but unsure if anything was stolen. Though the victim has not released any public statements, he has been released from the hospital and recovering from his personal injuries at home. No suspects have been arrested and police are appealing to possible witnesses to provide any leads.

Miami Residents Pondering Plastic Surgery Beware. Wrongful death was the charge for a famous Brazilian plastic surgeon whose patient died of heart failure during a butt implant this past July. The practicing surgeon, AKA Dr. Bum Bum, has testified that the fatality was purely accidental, despite having performed the surgical procedure at home with the help of his mother, girlfriend, and maid; all of whom are also facing charges. Despite the doctor’s claims of having performed over 9000 successful butt implants, official reports state that Dr. Bum Bum, who isn’t even have a real doctor, used an outlawed synthetic resin that may have led to the death of his 46-year-old patient. According to investigative reports, this is not the first incident involving butt implants gone wrong on Miami residents. Though, plastic surgery accounts for a small number of deaths compared to other surgical procedures or everyday accidents, official reports show that there were 31 deaths and some 150 complicated cases over the past seven years. Nevertheless, the Florida Board of Medicine is keeping a close watch on surgeons and facilities to guarantee no fatalities occur during or after plastic surgery procedures in Miami.

MIAMI-DADE: Florida’s Stand Your Ground law has a been a subject of controversy for quite some time now, with many claiming that it catapults modern civilization back to the pistol-duel days of the Wild West.  While opposers claim that this law fosters the use of firearms and gives way to court rulings that favor self-defense claims that are clearly unfair, the most recent updates to the law, backed by the NRA, oblige prosecutors to disprove self-defense pleas on behalf of the accused party’s attorney. The Stand Your Ground Law hit the media spotlight once again when a shootout inside a North Miami barbershop, led to a gunshot fatality. As bullets began to flare inside the shop, one of the patrons, who was packing a concealed weapon, hid inside a bathroom, as another customer, took cover in an office that faces the bathroom door. Shots rang out, echoing loudly throughout the barbershop. As silence took over and those inside the barbershop came out of hiding, the man who had hid in the bathroom, was found dead of the gunshot wounds he received from the man hiding in the office across from the bathroom. This past week, despite the shooter admitting that, back in 2014, he fired at whoever was in the bathroom, was acquitted by a Federal Circuit Judge on the grounds that the man had acted in self-defense and fear upon seeing the victim holding a gun in the middle of a barbershop shootout. According to a recent report, Florida ranks 27th in terms of firearm fatalities and 18th in violent crime rates involving guns.

Kick to Belly Gets Miami Cop Fired

North Miami. Aggravated battery was the charge that led to a North Miami police officer getting canned from her job. According to arrest reports, the female beach cop kicked an eight-month pregnant woman in the stomach during a street fight that broke last Wednesday night on a busy North Miami intersection. Though it remains unclear what led to the kicking melee, official statements hold the Miami Beach officer liable for the aggressive assault on the pregnant woman, who was rushed to a local hospital after allegedly suffering contractions. The officer, who joined the force about a year ago, was immediately suspended by the Miami Police Chief. In the meantime, police internal affairs will conduct a more thorough investigation as the victims attorney’s prepare their liability case, both of which will determine the fired officer’s fate. On the bright side for the suspended officer, the woman she kicked in the stomach gave birth to a healthy baby, and she will receive full pay while serving her suspension.

According to Section 784.021, Florida Statutes, Aggravated Assault is ruled when a victim suffers intentional violence, either verbally or physically, and may or may not include an object that can be used to provoke fatal injury. If you, a loved one, or family member has suffered Personal Injury, property damage, or loss as a result of aggravated assault or battery, the Perazzo Law Firm urges you to contact us Online or Call (786) LAWS-411 for Free initial consultation.

Warning: Watch What your Sniffing

Following a post by the FDA, a popular CVS nasal spray was recalled after its Florida based manufacturer warned of microbiological contamination. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which was detected in the nasal sinus spray in question, can lead to serious health problems to individuals, especially to those suffering from other illnesses. According to the Center for Disease Control, warning labels on sinus relief packaging and inserts clearly address the extended use of any nasal spray as being non-advisable, given the fact that they contain chemicals which enter the blood stream and can eventually damage weak immune systems. Consumers that have purchased nasal sprays from CVS drugstores should contact the manufacture to verify if it belongs to the recalled lot.  According to Federal Law, companies must guarantee that the products they manufacture and commercialize pose no potential health threats to consumers.

Fatal Turnpike Accident Wreaks Havoc on Motorists

Miami Turnpike – A tractor trailer toppled to one side and not only put traffic on a seven-hour standstill, but also took the life of the 53-year old truck driver from Miami.  Nearby witnesses reported a thundering crash as the 18-wheeler flipped over and went sliding into the guardrail, wreaking havoc on both the northbound and southbound lanes. According to reports, the driver erroneously handled the turnpike curve, causing him to lose control as the trailers weight caused it to go belly-up. Miami-Dade firefighters were quick to respond to the trucking accident scene near 27th Avenue, but were unable to rescue the Miami man, who had died before being removed from the mangled truck cab.  According to recent reports, approximately 500,000 crashes involving large trucks in the US are reported each year, with approximately 4,000 of them being fatal and close to 105,000 resulting in serious personal injury. Though most truck accidents are often the result of human error such as excessive speed, there are a number of reasons for trucking accidents, some of which may include: poor vehicle condition, excessive cargo, or even roadway conditions and bad weather. Even at slow speeds, the impact from a large motored-vehicle can cause serious personal injuries such as: Brain InjurySpinal Cord Injury, bone fractures or other injuries requiring permanent medical treatment. The operation of these vehicles requires greater care and diligence since big-rigs, tractor-trailers, and semi-trucks can weigh up to thirty times more than an average car.

Bakery Siblings Under Heat!

Hazard Light Rainbows and Florida Law.

In Miami, hazard lights seem to herald the forthcoming of the rainy season. Thus, the next several months may force motorists to confront mother nature’s menacing downpours in many ways. But the biggest threat doesn’t come from pouring rains or flooded streets, but from the colorful spectrum of lights from panicky motorists caught driving in stormy weather. While the misconception that hitting your hazard lights provides a dose of 360 degree safety, it in fact adds to the dangers of you being struck by another vehicle, as hazard lights reduce visibility and mean that a car is pulled over. As if braving poor visibility and slippery streets weren’t enough, the State of Florida has a Hazard Light Law, and motorists better beware of the $129 fine. In Florida, as in many states, it is illegal for drivers to turn on their hazards lights while in motion, especially in the rain. Despite the need for laws having to be enforced to compensate for lack of common sense, hazard lights are intended to be used in the event of a road emergency. Thus, applying hazard lights while driving, especially at slow speeds, could be easily misinterpreted or distracting to another driver. Unless used in the event of an accident, driving in the rain doesn’t constitute as a road emergency. In layman’s terms, just because a motorist is in a state of panic or in need of a sense of added safety to prevent an accident, he or she may get a ticket for hitting their hazards lights while driving in the rain.

Are Miami Motorists ready to drive on the left?

Car accidents in Miami may rise on one of the city’s most congested highways as motorists will be forced to adjust to driving on the wrong side of the road. Head-on collision at slow speeds are dangerous, at high speeds they can be deadly; but that’s not stopping the city’s planning officials to move forward with the radical changes to the already sketchy State Road 836, which will have motorists driving on the left. Is this London? Despite videos that show fast-paced traffic moving hassle-free along the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI), the truth is that collisions are imminent. The new DDI, which aims to alter the direction of the the on-and-off ramps, has raised concerns by drivers, with many of them taking their disapproval to social media channels.  The change is set to take place towards the end of the August, and is part of the $800 million project to improve the Dolphin Expressway, which connects the western suburbs of Miami-Dade County with the I-95 highway. Despite officials stating that the change is not confusing at all and basically depends on motorists ability to follow the array of traffic signals and markings that are designed to help guide them through the maze of intersections.
