The Perazzo Law Firm shares valuable information for understanding the Sciatic nerve and injuries following:
Many times, motorists have to pull over to the side of the highway and wait for a road service vehicle. While this may seem safe, it is in fact a potentially dangerous moment given the speeds at which other motorists are driving. When combined with poor weather conditions or poor visibility, the chances of an accident always increase. Though some motorists may be able to change a flat tire, many cannot, and very few drivers will be able to repair a busted radiator or replace a dead battery on the highway. When the vehicle is beyond repair by the driver, the only option is to request a road service and wait. However, the wait can be deadly if special precautions are not taken by the driver and its occupants. In Miami, the personal injury staff of car accident lawyers, understand accidents that occur while waiting for a tow truck or mechanic to help them get their vehicle off the highway. In most cases, other drivers will not notice vehicles stopped on the shoulder of a highway or side of a road, and when this happens, rear-end collisions are very common. It’s a known fact that drivers are very often operating vehicles while using their cellphones to read or write text messages. In fact, texting and driving is now the second most common cause of car accidents, with the first cause of car accidents being drinking and driving. Sometimes, drunk driving together with texting and driving make for a deadly combination. The Perazzo Law Firm has handled numerous cases in which drivers are crashed into while waiting for road service because they are simply not detected in time by distracted or drunk drivers.

Motor vehicle collisions in Miami are one of the most common causes of personal injury. The most common car accidents are rear-end collisions, which are the least deadly type of motor vehicle accidents, but which most often result in serious and long-term bodily injuries. The rear-end collisions typically result in a sudden acceleration and a sudden stop which cause a whipping motion to the accident victim’s head, neck, and back.

The Perazzo Law Firm Shares Latest, Important Developments Regarding PIP Insurance
Orange County, Florida – PIP insurance or Personal Injury Protection, has the world of motor vehicle insurance providers on tenterhooks as the Supreme Court rules against an insurance company and in favor of the Florida Hospital Medical Center in the 5th District Court of Appeal. Personal Injury Protection(PIP) is mandatory insurance coverage for all registered vehicle owners in the state of Florida and serves to cover up to $10,000 in medical bills, damages, or losses stemming from a motor vehicle accident regardless of which driver was legally found at fault. Nevertheless, not everything is as simple as it seems as insurance providers as well as healthcare providers are all looking out for their best economic interests. Thus was the underlying basis for the PIP case brought on by the Florida Hospital Medical Center, which held the Progressive Insurance Company liable for $200 in unpaid reimbursement for medical services rendered to one of their policyholders. A Progressive Insurance customer, a car accident victim, suffered personal injuries that accounted for $2,781 in hospital expenses. According to the official court records, his PIP insurance policy had a $1,000 deductible which the hospital subtracted before calculating the total amount using the formula under Florida PIP law. It turns out that the insurer did not apply the same method for determining the legitimate amount owed to the hospital and reached a total amount due of $868. This $200 difference, brought-on by subtracting the car accident victim’s $1000 deductible, prompted the legal battle by the Florida Hospital Medical Center. The case, which has insurance providers around the USA on edge, ruled against the formula used by the insurer company to calculate the amount owed. The decision was based on the grounds that the insurance company should apply the deductible to the overall charges in line with the statutory provisions. The ruling will ultimately lead to all insurance providers in Florida ultimately having to pay more to hospitals and healthcare practitioners treating motor vehicle accident victims.
So where does PIP stand now? The new rule states (in a nutshell) that the deductible needs to be exhausted at the start. Statutorily, the minimum deductible is $1,000, so the first $1K is the responsibility of the insured person and the insurance provider doesn’t have to pay it. Until now, the insurance company was spreading out the deductible.

Miami & Miami Beach Highway Accidents: Amid stormy weather, a truck accident on the northbound lanes of Interstate 95, which connects Miami Beach and Miami, added to the Labor Day weekend driving woes. A fatal crash backed-up traffic for several hours after a 47-year-old motorist behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi truck, spun out of control when it smashed into the inside highway wall. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the mid-morning crash ended in tragedy as the Miami Fire Rescue team pronounced the truck driver dead after he was flung from the cab and landed on the sidewalk below. Luckily, no other serious personal injuries were reported from the crash despite the truck spinning across the I-95 northbound lanes. Further south and about a half-hour later, a car accident blocked-off two lanes of the MacArthur Causeway east of Watson Island. Fortunately, no casualties were reported but the Miami Beach Police Department is advising motorists to avoid highways if possible, especially while bad weather persists. Monday wraps-up a Labor Day weekend that left a fatal mark on Miami roadways with at least seven dead and close to twenty-five injured. Trucks and large vehicles represent added dangers and require greater caution by car drivers and motorcyclists as large vehicles are much more difficult to maneuver amid heavy rains and on slippery roads. The most recent reports show that of the approximately 500,000 reported crashes involving large trucks in the US, some 4,000 were fatal, with close to 105,000 resulting in personal injury. It is worth noting that fatal accidents that involve trucks most often take-place in rural areas and on interstate highways. This being said, the Perazzo Law Firm suggests extra precaution when operating a motorized vehicle on Miami highways or Florida rural areas. Pedestrians and bicycle riders should also be extra alert when they detect the presence of a large moving vehicle in motion.

Tragedy strikes Miami-Dade highways leaving six dead and eleven injured in two separate incidents.
Miami-Dade: A drunk motorist led to the death of four people and serious personal injury to six others on the northbound lanes of the I-95 near 62nd Street in Miami-Dade County just after midnight. What started-off as a minor motorcycle incident involving another vehicle, turned into tragedy when a drunk 42-year motorist behind the wheel of a GMC van crashed into the rear bumper of a car that had pulled over to assist the injured motorcycle rider. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that there were several people on the highway shoulder assisting the motorcyclist when they were suddenly struck by the pulled-over vehicle the van operator had crashed into while driving drunk. The driver responsible for the deadly incidents was taken into custody and charged with manslaughter, serious bodily injury, property damage, and even resisting arrest. Sadly, the overnight death toll on Miami-Dade highways didn’t end there as two more people lost their lives a few hours later in a rollover accident on the Florida Turnpike. A Mercury SUV crashed into a guardrail after inexplicably losing control, causing the vehicle to flip over upon impact. Two of the passengers died when they were ejected from the SUV, while the driver, another passenger, and a baby, which had also been ejected from the SUV, survived. They were immediately taken to a local hospital where they are listed in serious condition. The FHP is trying to determine the cause of the accident, which apparently has a slippery roadway as one of the determining factors. According to data provided by the Miami-Dade Police department, there were 28 reported car accidents in August, 10 of which involved serious personal injuries. Statistics released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reveals some 388,032 car accidents in Florida in 2017, with Miami and Broward County ranking at the top. Miami accounted for 63,157 of reported incidents, with the highest percentage occurring on Friday nights.
Miami Law Firm Serving Uber & Lyft Accident Claims
MIAMI – A sixty-eight year old Uber driver lost his life this past Tuesday when his SUV was crashed into by a stolen vehicle allegedly fleeing from the police. According to official reports, surveillance camera, and cellphone footage, the Uber driver’s SUV suffered a violent impact when a stolen Dodge Ram Truck made a sharp left turn. Unfortunately, the Uber driver was unable to react in time and suffered serious personal injury which led to his death at a local hospital. Eyewitnesses report that his passengers, which included several children and a woman who was seated in the front seat, also suffered personal injuries as a result of the impact. Fortunately, none of their injuries were life-threatening despite the woman showing signs of being in extreme pain. Just seconds after the impact, Miami police officers arrived at the scene and arrested the driver of the truck, who is being charged with grand theft auto. The deceased Uber driver had been working for the ride share company since 2014 and according to loved-ones, the deceased Uber driver was a loving and dedicated father who strived to provide the best for his family. Just like all registered motor-vehicles in Florida, Uber and Lyft carry insurance policies that serve to compensate accident victims for their legitimate claims. Furthermore, Uber and Lyft insurance policies can cover up to $1 million in compensation for injury, damage or losses.

Hazard Light Rainbows and Florida Law.
In Miami, hazard lights seem to herald the forthcoming of the rainy season. Thus, the next several months may force motorists to confront mother nature’s menacing downpours in many ways. But the biggest threat doesn’t come from pouring rains or flooded streets, but from the colorful spectrum of lights from panicky motorists caught driving in stormy weather. While the misconception that hitting your hazard lights provides a dose of 360 degree safety, it in fact adds to the dangers of you being struck by another vehicle, as hazard lights reduce visibility and mean that a car is pulled over. As if braving poor visibility and slippery streets weren’t enough, the State of Florida has a Hazard Light Law, and motorists better beware of the $129 fine. In Florida, as in many states, it is illegal for drivers to turn on their hazards lights while in motion, especially in the rain. Despite the need for laws having to be enforced to compensate for lack of common sense, hazard lights are intended to be used in the event of a road emergency. Thus, applying hazard lights while driving, especially at slow speeds, could be easily misinterpreted or distracting to another driver. Unless used in the event of an accident, driving in the rain doesn’t constitute as a road emergency. In layman’s terms, just because a motorist is in a state of panic or in need of a sense of added safety to prevent an accident, he or she may get a ticket for hitting their hazards lights while driving in the rain.
