Figures for Miami and Orlando, the cities with the most car accidents per year according to statistics by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department. The cause of most car accidents is a result of motorist negligence, where a motorist fails to drive in a careful and prudent manner, with disregard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of the car accident lawyer’s client. According to Jonathan Perazzo and the thousands of car accident cases handled, Texting and Driving is the number one cause of almost all car accident. Many times, car accidents in cities like Miami and Orlando involve other types of vehicles such as scooters and motorcycles.

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.

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.

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.
