Car accidents are a common occurrence in Miami, and they can result in personal injury and property damage. Hit-and-run accidents can be particularly devastating, as there is often no one to hold accountable for the incident. The Perazzo Law Firm’s car accident attorneys in Miami understand the difficulties that hit-and-run victims face and offer legal support to help them navigate the process. In most cases, drivers flee the scene for various reasons, leaving victims and their families to cope with the aftermath.

When a pedestrian is involved in a hit-and-run accident in Miami, they often suffer serious injuries such as broken bones, head trauma, or even wrongful death. The victim may be hit head-on by a vehicle, resulting in injuries such as broken legs, hips, or ankles. Pedestrians are often hit when drivers turn at corners, particularly if they are distracted by cell phone use or intoxicated. In any case, the responsible driver must carry PIP insurance by law. After a hit-and-run accident, the pedestrian should seek immediate medical attention and try to gather any information about the driver or vehicle involved. Pedestrians can take steps to avoid such accidents, such as avoiding crossing the street from behind a parked car at night, as this can make them difficult to see. If a pedestrian is hit in this way, the injuries may be more severe, potentially including broken shoulders, arms, collarbones, or head and neck injuries. Brain and neck injuries can require long-term medical treatment and result in permanent damage. Perazzo Law Firm advises seeking medical attention immediately after a hit-and-run accident, including an MRI exam if necessary, and contacting their offices for legal support.
