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!

cruise-ship-1360757-300x169Life is but Cruise

Rest and Relaxation at Sea – Cruise ships are floating resorts, amusements parks at sea, restaurants and nightclubs with the endless horizon as the backdrop to an experience like no other. With cruise ship companies and cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Princess, Regent Seven Seas, and others taking to US and International waters. the chances for unexpected mishaps can occur. Just like airlines, railway operators, and bus lines, cruise ships can experience mishaps that can lead to personal injury, damage, and even wrongful death due to negligence, wrong doing, or mechanical flaws. Contrary to trains, planes, and automobiles, cruise ships offer much more when it comes to passenger satisfaction. When a passenger boards a plane, train, or bus, he/she simply expects to reach their destination safely and perhaps enjoy a good meal. When it comes to boarding a cruise ship and setting out to sea, passengers are more interested in the entertainment the cruise line has to offer. Today, cruise ship companies go all out to make sure their passengers have as much fun as possible and thus, they include swimming pools, dance floors, restaurants, adrenaline rides such as bungee cords, trampolines, diving boards, roller coasters and much more. In fact, some cruise ships companies offer two floor suites with staircases, hot tubs, and many more amenities. This all sounds very tantalizing and thrilling, but the truth is that passengers aboard these floating resorts sometimes get hurt,  with the cruise ship operator legally responsible liable for injuries, damages, and compensation for the passenger’s losses.

ULTRA ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL

Ultra Music Festival 19

Virginia Keys, Miami: Organizers of the Ultra Music Festival are scrambling to avoid a repeat of the pedestrian mayhem that developed over the Rickenbacker Causeway last night just after midnight. Despite having over two hundred buses revved and ready to take festival goers from Marine Stadium to the Miami mainland, organizers where not expecting an early exodus. With some 50,000 ticket holders expected to attend the music festival this weekend, transportation and safety area major concern for organizers and visitors alike. In an attempt to avoid early morning pedestrian and bus chaos, Ultra organizers aim to improve communication and sign posting to steer visitors in the right direction and towards the buses that will take them to one of three drop-off points. According to former police chief Ray Martinez, special bus lanes are supposed to drive festival goers over the William Powell Bridge, which connects Miami to the Virginia Keys. While Ultra apologized to fans of the Friday night logistics fiasco via Twitter, it is hoping to regain their confidence when it comes to their safety, which took a nose dive last night when fireworks caused a tree to catch on fire. Though the evening’s mild weather made for a tantalizing stroll over the bridge, it raised concern over the safety of weary festival goers and the potential risks that come with massive crowds. Furthermore, the large number of ticket holders when combined with the woes of getting over the bridge, helps fuel the hiring of illegal boat charters, which depart near American Airlines Arena and Miami Marine Stadium. For those attending the Ultra Electornic Music Festival, Perazzo Law recommends thinking twice about boarding shady boats and make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

CAR ACCIDENTS IN MIAMI OCCUR EVERYDAY, WITH ACCIDENT VICTIMS SUFFERING BODILY INJURY, VEHICLE DAMAGE, OR LOSSES. 

car-crash-1451244-1-300x225

Car accident victims that are involved in collisions are most often taken by surprise and don’t know how to react accordingly to the accident, especially if there are injuries to drivers or passengers. When this happens, a sense of desperation will most likely override common sense. That is why it is important for motorists to know how to act properly and what steps and measures to take following an accident in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties. There are times when motorists need to act quickly to the accident by making sure their lives are not in danger or they risk further injury. It is vital to make sure to take the necessary measures to make sure you and any passengers in your vehicle are safe and that injuries are attended to as quickly as possible. When an accident happens on a city street or avenue, motorists are advised to not move the vehicle until the authorities arrive. However, if it is necessary to move the vehicle, Perazzo Law recommends taking photographs of the accident scene and any damage to all vehicles involved.  This can only be done if the driver or the vehicle owner has the physical ability to do so. In other words, if the driver is seriously injured, then he/she can ask a passenger or a bystander to do this for them. Different rules apply when the accident takes place on a highway or interstate. In this case, the vehicle must be moved over to the shoulder, if safe and able to do so. The driver and any passengers must get off the highway to avoid being crashed into by any oncoming traffic. Visit the Perazzo Law Website for more in-depth advice on how to handle car accidents on city streets, avenues, and highways. The advice below corresponds to accidents that occur on city avenues or streets and when there is no risk of further injury. Read carefully and keep a copy of these steps with you in your vehicle.

Davie, Florida: A 2016 Tesla S swerved out of control at approximately 90 mph and crashed into a tree, before catching fire and killing its driver, according to preliminary police and eyewitness reports. Though the incident is pending an official and thorough investigation, bystanders that tried to rescue the South Florida man from within the burning car, claimed that they were unable to open its doors and that the airbags had not deployed upon impact. This eyewitness testimony will be key in determining whether or not the man’s life could have been saved had the airbags deployed. The S owner’s manual states that the deployment of the airbag upon impact activates the retractable door handles which allow the car doors to be opened. If the investigation reveals that the airbags did not deploy and that the man died as a result, Tesla may be faced with yet another lawsuit and suffer a devastating economic blow. Even though the man was reported to be doing somewhere between 75 and 90 mph in a 55mph zone, the investigation will also center around what caused the car to lose control, ride over the medium, cut across lanes and slam into a palm tree. The Miami Perazzo Law serves car accident claims that result from defective car parts, faulty airbags, or poor vehicle maintenance service by third party service providers. If you, a friend, or relative has suffered personal injury, property damage, loss of wages, or have been stuck with whopping medical bills as a result of another individual’s negligence, Perazzo Law urges you to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach Office ONLINE today for FREE legal advice.

police-1494092-300x225MOTORCYCLE MAYHEM IN MIAMI: Recreational motorcycling along the Florida coast remains an absolutely breathtaking experience. However, riding through the Miami metropolitan area has become a routine survival mission for those depending on motorcycles to commute and work. Motorcycle riders that are involved in accidents that include cars or trucks usually suffer personal injury, property damage, or losses. Sadly, with the scores of pedestrians, joggers, bikers, scooters, cars, and trucks that make-up part of the daily urban landscape, it’s just a matter of time before a motorcycle accident happens. Though the factors behind motorcycles accidents vary, Perazzo Law understands reckless driving and overall negligence are perhaps the leading causes. In other words, safe drivers are less likely to get injured or killed while riding their motorcycle through Miami-Dade or Broward County cities. When motorcycle accidents occur, Perazzo Law’s professional representation may be required for handling the legal complexities that compensation claims involve.

Perazzo Law Shares basic insight into Motorcycle Laws in Florida

balance-1172786-300x204Whether riding to work in the city or delivering a pizza in the suburbs, a motorcycle accident can occur as a result of individual fault or third party negligence. Most motorcycle accidents that involve other motor vehicles may end in bruises, fractures, or even death. But who’s going to pay for property damage, medical bills, or funeral expenses?

at-the-yacht-club-1555621-225x300FLORIDA: Chartering a boat and taking to an ocean journey for a festive gathering can make for a memorable Miami moment. However, hiring a boat is different than hiring an Uber or renting a car, and when people fail to tell the difference, a boat ride can end tragically or simply go bust. Such was the case in Biscayne Bay this past Sunday when a 45-foot yacht called “Sea You Twerk’ was pulled over by the U.S. Coast Guard and held for violation of boating safety regulations. Unfortunately for the boat operators and the 14 passengers on board, the trip was cut short after the Coast Guard verified no licensed captain on board and no certificate of vessel inspection.  This latest incident is just one in a string of cases where unsuspecting people charter boats that may not meet with safety operating standards. The Coast Guard warns people to take caution when chartering a boat, or any water vessel for that matter, by making sure the operators meet all safety standards.

BOATING SAFETY AND REGULATIONS 

life-saver-1178355-300x225The best way to steer clear of serious injury from a boating accident is to be familiar with the rules and regulations pertinent to boat owners and operators. There are specific rules governing the command or usage of boats and water vessels according to the location and even the time of year. There are also laws regulating the type and amount of safety equipment that must be on board, such as long range communications equipment and life vests. In addition, there are laws limiting the amount of alcohol a boat operator may consume without running the risk of being charged with boating under the influence. Florida law requires that individuals under the age of 21 must take an approved boating safety course and be awarded a boating safety ID card to operate a boat with 10 horsepower or more. They must also carry the ID card and a photo ID issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

PERAZZO LAW SERVES PREMISES LIABILITY AND FOOD POISONING CLAIMS

old-hands-1559233-300x225KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY FOOD!

MIAMI-DADE. A recent string of inspections led by the Department of Agriculture found that a total of 15 food outlets, distributors, and warehouses across Miami-Dade were in direct violation of health safety standards and proper hygiene implementation. The health inspectors reported violations that range from no hot water in bathroom sinks, to a potpourri of animal feces sprinkled over packed consumer goods. In most of the cases, the major risk to consumers comes from the lack of personal hygiene by workers handling food, since the inspectors found that many food handlers failed to wash their hands properly, either from personal negligence or lack of resources such as hot water, soap, or paper towels. Reports also state that kitchen staff could be seen rubbing their noses and touching their faces while handling food. Spoiled or rotten goods were also reported to have been found as well as meat slicers bearing remnants of leftover food particles along the blades, trays, and other parts. In accordance with proper health safety measures, meat slicers must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized regularly to prevent disease through bacteria build-up. When it comes to washing dishes and utensils used in food preparation, the absence of hot water can many times result in poorly sanitized foodware. Thus was the case in several popular Miami-Dade food establishments according to the official inspection reports.

key-west-resort-1529488-1-225x300THE BAHAMAS: Fire swept through the Princess Cays Resort this past Monday night and struck panic among hotel staff and local residents. With an average of five Princess and Carnival cruise ships docking every week at the south port of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas, yellow and red flames lit-up the night sky alongside beach chairs and umbrellas. Luckily, local firefighters and local staff were able to get the fire under control in just over an over. Princess Cruises reported no injuries and thanks to no passenger ships docking that day, there were no guests at the resort. Unfortunately, the flames were enough to damage several buildings across the 40 acres of land owned by the Princess Cruises Company, which last year renovated the Princess Cays Resort and added a marina.  The cruise ship Carnival Pride, along with its 2500+ passengers, was scheduled to arrive but had to set a new course for Half Moon Cay because of the damage the fire left behind at Princess Cays. It is still uncertain what led the blaze at the Bahamas resort.
