What does a dedicated Personal Injury Attorney and Law Firm do for their clients? gavel-1238036-300x201

The Perazzo Law Firm – Dedicated to putting their clients interests first…Always! 

Personal injury accidents that require legal assistance and representation go beyond knowing the law (Tort Law), especially when dealing with insurance companies for compensation from personal injury accidents that lead to medical attention and economic losses. Personal injury accidents stemming from vehicle collisions, slip and fall incidents, dog attacks, premises liability claims, defective products or services, and wrongful death, will most often cast victims and loved-ones into a whirlwind of complications that stem beyond their concerns for physical, mental, and economic recovery. Many times, insurance companies will place obstacles down the road to recovery and resort to the common practice of offering accident victims unfair compensation settlements. Basically, and in layman’s terms, insurance companies like to make money not spend it, especially if the accident victim and/or family requires a large sum of money to compensate for losses incurred. However, it’s not all about money when a dedicated personal injury lawyer is involved. Though Jonathan Perazzo focuses on maximizing the accident victim’s recovery, he and his entire legal staff strive jointly to achieve their client’s 100% satisfaction. How? – By attending to every aspect of their claim throughout the entire legal process and until their case is resolved. When a client is 100% satisfied, Perazzo Law is too!

AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN MIAMI FACING DIRE STRAIGHTS

With Miami-Dade County employee salaries averaging $50,000 a year, affordable housing seems to be weighing heavy on tenants struggling to make ends meet. According to recent studies, home values in Miami-Dade have rocketed by 66% compared to the 14% rise in worker wages over the ten-year period leading up to 2017. Though construction is evidently active in and around downtown Miami, modern price-tags target wealthy foreigners rather than members of the middle-class workforce. In fact, the 2019 State of the Nation’s Housing report by Harvard University states that low-rent housing availability (under $800 monthly) has fallen by 39% with a 2% drop in the number of low-income renters. The Harvard report goes on the say that 20% of new-single family houses constructed from 2007-2017 were valued at $200,000. According to this and other housing statistics publicly available, Miami renters allocate over 30% of their income to cover rent, which can average around $2,000 a month in modest neighborhoods such as North Miami. An executive director at Miami Homes For All stated in an interview that the crisis has spread and has affected the Miami-Dade middle and upper class and not just low-income families. With more than a third of monthly wages going towards rent, there is a shortage of available housing to those earning under $40,000 a year, which is just $10,000 less than the 80% of Miami-Dade county workers earn per year. In the meantime, though unemployment in the low-wage work sector has risen, the cost of real-estate and residential construction projects continue to rise. So where exactly should middle and lower income workers look to live within Miami-Dade county? And where should those looking to purchase a well-priced piece of real-estate shop? According to recent real estate reports for Miami-Dade county, cities such as Allapattah, Little Havana and Coconut Grove are expected to receive $7.5 million in funding to build affordable housing for the local Miami workforce earning between $30K-60K per year. According to statistics, the city facing the toughest affordable housing ordeals is Miami, which has the highest percentage of residents earning much less than the $50,000 yearly average salary. Housing reports state that there are some 85 housing units that fall under the Miami Beach scope, which include studio apartments priced at $740 per month in rental fees. According  to the a U.S. Census report, over 1 million residents, with an average income of some $60K, live in a separate sector of Miami-Dade. Unfortunately for middle and lower class households in Miami, rental fees for apartments and houses are expected to increase and not go down anytime soon.

 NEW MORTGAGE LOANS TO HIT REAL ESTATE MARKET SOON

REAL ESTATE NEWS BY THE PERAZZO LAW FIRM

Aspiring homeowners and real-estate investors in Miami and throughout Florida, may soon have new options for purchasing real-estate through special mortgage loans called CHOICERenovation loans.  These loans aim to attract potential buyers that are interested in acquiring property that has suffered experienced significant damage from the nature’s wrath. Hurricane damaged homes for example, may have lost significant value and lay dormant in the real estate market for years. The loans may also appeal to individuals or real estate developers looking to renovate homes that are over 40 years old and in poor structural condition. Interestingly, and according to real estate statistics, one out of every five properties dates back to the mid-seventies. Though potential real estate buyers looking to relocate prefer homes that need little if not any remodeling or repair work, some are enticed by the lower costs of houses which may need plumbing, electric, or general repairs. The owners of houses that are old or run-down may also benefit from the new CHOICERenovation mortgage loans offered by Freddie Mac, which are expected to be available soon. But how do the new loans work and how do they benefit buyers? Firstly, the costs of any needed repairs will be included in the loan itself and any remodeling or repairs do not necessarily have to be done by a contractor. In other words, they can do the work themselves as long as they can prove they are qualified to carry-out home improvements jobs such as plumbing, electricity, roofing, etc.. This new proposal is expected to attract first-time buyers that have limited funds but willing to take advantage of property that is affordably priced. The loans may also appeal to those looking to remodel their current home in order to accommodate family members or renovate their old home so as to avoid moving and having to deal with the complexities of selling and buying real estate. In many cases, it can be less expensive and easier to remodel or renovate than to buy or sell, which will involve real-estate broker fees, property taxes, title insurance, and many other costs stemming from a real estate transaction. Nevertheless, when the opportunity of owning your home at affordable terms comes knocking, it might be wise to open the door.

Miami Car Accident Lawyer Serves Car Accident Victims & Products Liability Claims for Compensation

Car Manufacturers pump-out hundreds of thousands of vehicles every year and are constantly rolling out new designs aimed at enhancing style, comfort, and safety, all of which require advanced technological complexity.

Because when motorists operate defective vehicles, there is a potential threat of suffering personal injury from a crash. That’s when car companies recall the vehicles they consider are dangerous to drivers, pedestrians, and anyone on the road. But what happens when a vehicle owner or driver is involved in an accident that stems from a defective car part, faulty software, or self-deploying airbag? That’s when accident victims, friends or family need to consult the professional advice of the Perazzo Law Firm in Miami.

Walmart Destination: Your Fridge.

GROCERIES-300x225MIAMI — With the rise in ride share delivery services such as UberEats, Instacart, DoorDash, and more, Walmart is striving to stay-in-tune with this food-delivery rush. With more than a million customers placing InHome Delivery orders from Walmart within several East Coast cities, Miami has become the next target for the groceries and goods giant. Online shopping is nothing new to Miami residents or anyone with a credit card and an Amazon account. But Walmart aims to take home delivery a step further. Though online shopping on Ebay, for example, offers free and reliable delivery, customers ordering groceries online from Walmart would have to pay a fee and cover the cost of a special door lock, which will enable the Walmart delivery employees to enter the customer’s home and makes their way towards the fridge. In other words, an absolute stranger will have access to your home, business, place of work, etc. However, the Walmart deliver employee will be equipped with a camera that the customer can access from a special app and be able to track the employee’s progress towards the customer’s refrigerator. Furthermore, each delivery placed by the customer will planned and scheduled at the time of the online purchase. Thus, customers can rest assured that Walmart home delivery personnel won’t be walking in on them at the wrong time. Customers were wary at first during pilot tests runs in new Jersey, as premises owners didn’t appreciate strangers walking into their homes or place of business when they are not there. But according to a Walmart executive leading this new concept in home delivery, Walmart quickly gained their customer’s trust, as there are strict requirements which the delivery staff must meet before being assigned to this style of home delivery service. In a nut shell, Walmart is eager to capitalize on the home delivery boom and the success of its grocery business, which accounted for 50% of its yearly turnover.

FLYING CARS IN MIAMI?

FLYING-CAR-ACCIDENT-LAWYER-PERAZZO-LAW-300x225
The top of the Miami Paramount Worldcenter Complex is set to become the site for the first parking lot for flying cars. Keeping in line with the high speed of technological progress that seems to be putting the future behind us, flying cars are just around the corner.  The developer of the sky port, Dan Kodsi, seems to have a firm futuristic grip on this imminent commuting revolution, which from atop the sixty-floor skyscraper located in downtown Miami, he envisions flying cars landing and taking-off. According to news reports, the ride-share service company, Uber, seems highly intent on winning the race to the sky. Uber plans to have several manufactures design and test prototypes of VTOLs (vertical takeoff and landing vehicles). If feasible, Uber may become the first transportation service company to fly passengers from a city street to a parking lot 1000 feet in the air. Though still under construction, the Paramount isn’t expected to serve as a flying car parking lot until 2020. In the meantime, the high-rise condo’s residents will be able to visit the glass-covered rooftop for breathtaking views of the Miami metropolitan area as they await the arrival of the first flying car.

FLYING CARS AND THE FUTURE

Perazzo-Law-Texting-and-Driving-Accidents-in-Miami-300x199TEXTING & DRIVING WILL SOON GET YOU PULLED OVER & TICKETED

Florida:  Texting & Driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents today, with thousands of accidents taking place everyday on Florida avenues, streets and highways. The Governor of Florida has recently signed a bill that will allow the authorities to stop motorists spotted texting & driving while behind the wheel and in motion. Nevertheless, drivers will be able to use their mobile device while their car, SUV, or truck are not in movement. Even though texting & driving has been illegal for many years now, cops have done little since they aren’t allowed to pull drivers over even if spotted texting & driving. In fact, there were only 1700 citations throughout 2018 to those caught texting & driving. Though the bill focuses on reducing the number of accidents caused as a result of distracted motorists using their cell phone to send & read text messages, it also aims to educate motorists on the grave consequences that come from texting & driving accidents in Miami & other cities where texting & driving accidents are more common. Motorists will not be allowed to text & drive but they will be allowed to use the cell phones to talk, use GPS services, check weather forecasts, and read emergency messages. As of January 1st, 2020, motorists caught with their fingers on the keypad will be issued tickets of $30 plus court fees. Repeat offenders will lose points & their licenses.

1661e426-8ea8-4d72-ac30-7f02bd902ffe-225x300Miami motorists have an incredibly hard time putting down their cellphones while driving. Motorists distracted by texting, voice messaging, talking and using GPS services also seem to add to the potentials of suffering an accident that may result in bodily injury to pedestrians, joggers, bike riders, etc. Florida ranks 2nd in the USA when it comes to accidents resulting from negligent use of cellphones behind the wheel, and despite cellphone use being worthy of a moving violation, it is not. Nevertheless, negligent cell-phone-use related accidents are on the rise on Miami streets and highways, with many of them leading to serious personal injury and even wrongful death. Using a cell phone behind the wheel can distract a driver enough to run over a pedestrian or rear-end a stopped vehicle. Though the driver may not suffer any injury, the victim may require medical attention, which can lead to medical costs and an insurance claim for compensation. The Perazzo Law Firm is vastly experienced in representing those that have fallen victim to motorist negligence as a result of cellphone use while driving in Miami. We strive to make sure our car accident victims and clients get the compensation they deserve for their injuries, damages, or losses.

surgical-lighting-1536040-279x300A woman that entered a Miami clinic to undergo cosmetic surgery died after being rushed to a local hospital.  Danea Plasencia, a 28-year old mother of three young children, passed away at Baptist Hospital for reasons under investigation by the Miami-Dade Police homicide department. Plasencia, who according to family members suffered cardiac arrest, was in perfect health upon entering the clinic this past Friday morning. Her grandfather, a medical practitioner in Hialeah, had intended to convince her against having the cosmetic surgery performed. Sadly, he was unaware of when she was scheduled to enter MIA Aesthetics, located at 9300 NW 72nd St. for the cosmetic surgery. Her grandfather, who openly stated his disapproval for this type of surgery, claims that women are lured into low cost surgical procedures by plastic surgeons offering discounts on cash payments, adding that these types of clinics most often carry no medical insurance with which to compensate victims in the event of negligence or medical malpractice. In response to the statements made by Plasencia’s grandfather to news crews responding to the incident, the clinic issued a statement that this fatal incident is the first of its kind in the thousands of surgical procedures carried out over the years. The clinic’s spokesperson added that’s its staff of surgeons is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and aimed at offering its cosmetic surgery patients the safest medical care possible. Nonetheless, the clinic spokesperson admitted to the risks involved with all serious surgical procedures, adding that the clinic will keep the public and its patients informed about  details as they emerge from the investigation that ensues. Meanwhile, family and friends of the victim, hope that cosmetic surgical clinics get the legal attention they deserve in order to prevent more deaths at the hands of low-cost cosmetic surgery clinics and negligent surgeons.

Cosmetic Surgery and Florida Lawbalance-1172786-300x204

The House of Representatives passed a bill earlier this month that holds clinics and healthcare professional, surgeons, and medical practitioners economically liability for compensation to patients that fall victim to medical malpractice. Furthermore, clinics would undergo yearly inspections by the Department of Health, which would be granted the legal right to suspend or take away the clinics operating license if irregularities that jeopardize the well-being of its patients are found. The law aims to enforce the regulations by which cosmetic surgeons and clinics abide. In a statement by the President of ASAP, Dr. Jeffrey E. Lanis, patients considering cosmetic surgery are advised to seek board-certified and skilled plastic surgeons.
