EN MIAMI, ABOGADOS DE ACCIDENTES DE CARRO SABEN QUE LOS ACCIDENTES OCURREN TODO EL TIEMPO: MAÑANA, TARDE Y NOCHE.

lesionado-en-miami-293x300Aunque las víctimas de accidentes automovilísticos siempre deben buscar atención médica después de un accidente automovilístico, incluso las colisiones menores, muchos choques no requieren atención médica y pueden tratarse en casa. Después de un accidente automovilístico en Miami, es común que las víctimas de accidentes sufran lesiones en la cara, los brazos y el cuerpo. Los abogados del bufete de abogados Perazzo saben que estas lesiones por accidentes automovilísticos suelen incluir cortes, quemaduras, moretones, roturas y dolores musculares, y que por lo general se sienten peor durante las primeras 24 a 48 horas. Las víctimas de accidentes automovilísticos pueden experimentar la mayor rigidez y dolor durante las primeras horas y también pueden sentirse peor cuando se despierta la primera mañana después del accidente. Sin embargo, es importante recordar que su dolor y sufrimiento probablemente comenzarán a desaparecer a medida que pasen los días. La rapidez con la que mejora cada víctima de un accidente automovilístico depende a menudo de la gravedad del accidente automovilístico y de la cantidad de lesiones sufridas en el accidente, así como de la ubicación, la naturaleza de estas lesiones y si una bolsa de aire se desplegó en el momento del impacto.

FLORIDA LAW FIRMS AND THE CORONAVIRUS EFFECT

gavel-1238036-300x201Law firms across Florida have had to adapt to COVID-19 as a result of closed courtrooms, travel limitations and working from remote locations in order to reduce the health risks brought on by the spread of the coronavirus.  With jury trials suspended until the end of April by Florida Chief Justice Charles Canady, and oral arguments until June, trial attorneys will need to rely on E-technologies to carry-out legal proceedings and other activities as recommended by Florida courts. According to Craig Waters, director of the state Supreme Court’s Public Information Office, “Members of the Bar are stepping up to the plate in implementing Chief Justice Charles Canady’s statewide orders about the public health emergency. This is a serious emergency, but Florida’s legal professionals understand its seriousness and are working together to make the system work as well as possible.” The efforts proposed are fundamental for the court system to keep operating effectively while aiming to limit the spread of COVID-19 among the population. The most effective to measure law firms can take to safeguard against being infected by the coronavirus, which can be deadly to the elderly and frail, is to work remotely and remain isolated at home. Meanwhile, online notaries will see more work and the Supreme Court has given notaries the green light when it comes to not having to be physically present, allowing for law firms proceed more swiftly with depositions. Encrypted technologies and communication provide attorneys with the tools to keep client information confidential despite having to work off a desktop or by phone from home. In Miami-Dade, Florida’s 11th Circuit court ordered that judicial deadlines and time limits set by orders, rules and statutes be suspended until the last week of April. Federal courts apply electronic filing systems for documentation and pleadings for the time being while the Florida Supreme Court will continue litigation, which will impact clients and attorneys alike in terms of active litigation cases that involve discovery, document production, depositions, etc. While many Florida law firms are still open, most will have eventually be serving clients from remote locations in order to safeguard the well-being of their staff and help reduce the spread of the coronavirus, which is fundamental for a prompt return to normality.

CLASS ACTION SUIT BLAMES CHINA FOR THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK

gavel-1238036-300x201The People’s Republic of China (PRC) is being sued by a Florida law firm on the grounds of negligently spreading the deadly COVID-19, popularly known as the coronavirus. According to the class action suit filed on March 13th in the U.S. District Court in Southern Florida, the  People’s Republic of China is being accused of negligence by its public agencies for not being able to contain the spread of the virus, which has led to tens of thousand fatal cases worldwide and totally devastating the U.S. economy. Furthermore, the suit holds the People’s Republic of China guilty of testing the COVID-19 virus on animals within the National Biosafety Laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is believed to have escaped and spread into the nearby market place that sold live animals for human consumption. The Wuhan lab, a governmental bio-weapon lab,  is believed to be equally at fault for the spread of the virus as negligent controls were to blame, along with other suggested theories that hold Chinese researchers at fault for having sold laboratory test animals to merchants of the marketplace for commercial distribution among humans, instead of following the PRC law which calls for cremation of lab test animals. According to a senior litigation strategist, the firm has gathered information that reveals testing of the COVID-19, or a similar strain of the virus on bats, as well as other animals. At present, the class action suit filed under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, entails five plaintiffs from South Florida that have not been infected by the coronavirus but is set to include individuals that have contracted the potentially deadly disease.  The Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act gives American citizens the right to bring legal action against foreign countries in the event of negligent acts or wrongdoing by the governing officials of that country. The firm alleges that the PRC and other parties, were negligent and acted out of self interest by not reporting the outbreak immediately. It also hints that the PRC was trying to protect their status as a world super power and failed to act accordingly to prevent a worldwide outbreak.  It is believed that the PRC government officials were aware of the potentially harmful magnitude of the virus and delayed notifying the World Health Organization (WHO) by 17 days. Included in the lawsuit is information about a public dinner in the city of Wuhan which had a turnout of some 40,000 families on January 18th. The suit claims that the local government knew about this dinner and allowed it to take place despite knowing the severity of the virus and how quickly it could spread. The Bocan Raton law firm is conducting further investigation into these claims but at present has no real evidence to support its case other than the very real effects of the coronavirus on modern life as we know it, with the global economy on tenterhooks and societies around the world in a state of  panic.

To date, 450,000 coronavirus cases have been reported around the world and some 20,000 deaths since the outbreak was first reported 60 days ago. On a good note, some 110,000 victims have recovered which represents a 24.86% recovery rate.
