MIAMI PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER EXPLAINS ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY STRONG WINDS.

The wind, unnoticed or heard unless it blows strong, can cause things fall, and when that happens, there is a chance someone may get hurt. When objects take to the air, they will fall somewhere. Strong winds are a major cause of accidents and injuries, and the staff at the Perazzo Law Firm, would like to shed light on some of the ways that strong winds can lead to accidents and injuries to Florida residents regardless of being inside or outdoors.

There are times when objects, especially those that hang or are bound to a fixture on a ceiling or wall, will become unfastened and find their way to the ground. In one such example, a large painting with a wooden frame was hanging on a wall fit with only a string hooked to a nail. When a storm approached and strong winds made their way through an open window, the painting became unfastened and fell to the ground, but not before falling on the head of a person having a cup of coffee. The wind accident victim in this case, suffered cuts and bruises and had to be treated at a hospital. The owner of the business was found liable for the injuries in a premises liability accident claim. According to the accident victim’s personal injury lawyer, the business operator should have taken the necessary safety precautions by making sure the painting was firmly bound to the wall and that a strong wind would not be enough for it to fall.

Miami Personal Injury Lawyer shares information on quick COVID-19 tests and OTC tests.

In a time where everything is now and as quickly as possible, knowing whether or not you have COVID takes the cake. Based on paranoia and on a push to have everyone in the world vaccinated, the US government and big pharma have come up with ways for people to get tested at home and at multiple sites. This is because with a more new cases and more new strains, comes more money for the federal government and their pharmaceutical cohorts.  Afterall, it’s the taxpayers who are paying for the “free” shots.

Much in the same way you can order a Big Mac at a McDonald’s drive-thru, you can get a COVID test and shot. It’s as simple as that.

POOR-LIGHTING-1-225x300Poor Lighting and Walking Surfaces

When walking surfaces are unsafe, it is a matter of time before someone trips, slips, or falls. When the lighting is poor, dim, or non-conventional as in the use of neon lights, the chances of suffering a trip, slip, or fall accident increase. Though retail outlets such as Publix, Walmart, etc., are well lit, with walking surfaces kept in proper condition and hazard-free, bars and nightclubs present certain hidden dangers to customers and guests. Poor lighting is one of the three main reasons why people trip, slip, or fall. When poor lighting and uneven walking surfaces combine, the chances of a trip and fall are overwhelming, especially to the intoxicated and elderly, who can suffer sever personal injury.

NEON LIGHTS, OBSTACLES, AND STEPS

IN MIAMI, THE PERAZZO LAW FIRM SHARES INFORMATION ON FOOT INJURIES AFTER A SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT

Almost a dozen senior citizens suffered injuries after tripping and falling while walking down a local seaside street. Why? Because the sidewalk was improperly designed; with ramps and steps that were difficult to detect under poor lighting and signaling. When a sidewalk is uneven and there are no bannisters for sloped walkways, senior citizens may have difficulty detecting where it is safe to step. City engineers and public inspection services are bound by law to make sure that walking surfaces are safe for pedestrians, as well as bike riders and all those that use sidewalks. According to reports from some of the pedestrians injured and witnesses, about half way up the street, the sidewalk divided into steps and a ramp. Sadly, there was no bannister, no warning, or markings of any kind that warned of a potential safety hazard for the pedestrians making their way towards the fork in the road. Witnesses say that they could see some elderly women slipping toppling over as they took their first couple of steps onto the divide. There is no footage available, but several ambulances and rideshare services were used to transport the injured pedestrians to local hospitals and clinics. The pedestrian accident victims suffered diverse injuries.

MIAMI-ACCIDENT-LAWYER-PERAZZO-LAW-300x300CAN A CLIENT SUE THEIR LAWYER?

Yes, a client can sue their personal injury lawyer. Personal injury lawyers have a reputation for being scrupulous when it comes to cashing in on their clients injuries. Though this is a common misconception, there are cases when personal injury lawyers do not place their client’s best interest at the forefront of personal injury insurance claims.

Such was the case of a Florida resident that filed a lawsuit against the personal injury law firm that represented him. In the claim, the former client of a prestigious Florida law firm alleged that the attorney handling his case, convinced him to undergo spinal cord surgery which ultimately left him paralyzed from the neck down. The Florida man, who had suffered lumbar disc injury in a car accident, claims that he was recommended spinal cord surgery by his personal injury lawyer and his doctors, the former stating that surgery would help to increase the compensation settlement offered by the insurance provider. It’s a common practice for personal injury lawyers to suggest surgical intervention if it helps to increase the amount of economic recovery, which ultimately enhances the personal injury lawyer’s fees. The plaintiff is also suing the surgeon, the rehabilitation center where he recovered, and the manufacturer of the surgical instrument that caused his spinal cord injury during surgery. With nearly $3 million in medical fees since his surgical ordeals began in 2015 following the car accident that resulted in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar injury, the Florida man is seeking compensation to cover his debts and provide funds with which to cover future expenses. According to the lawsuit against the personal injury law firm that handled his case, the Florida man was advised to proceed to trial rather than settle with the insurance providers, which had offered a settlement in the millions of dollars. The firm is also accused of hiring expert witnesses that only served to ruin his chances of winning the case.
