Personal Injury Lawyer in Miami Serving Accidents Victims on Highways and Streets
Behind the wheel in the rain or fog, even at slow speeds, an accident may occur, basically because car brakes do not respond as effectively when wet and drivers may fail to detect bad road conditions such as potholes, obstacles, or curbs, all of which can cause motorists to lose control of their car and lead to personal injury. Furthermore, the increase in cell phone use while driving amid foggy windshields and rainy roads is leading to an increase in the number of car accidents.
Given our professional experience representing clients that crash their car or are crashed into on Miami highways and streets, we encourage motorists and passengers to contact a Personal Injury Lawyer immediately after the police file their report and any injuries that require immediate attention are attended to. Many times, regardless of whether or not there are evident signs of personal injury, there may be consequential injuries that may take time to reveal themselves. Some of these injuries may include Brain or Spinal Cord Injuries as a result of sudden impact to the head or whiplash.
Driving a car, SUV, or truck carelessly or at high speeds usually leads to a car accident that may result in serious personal injury, property damage, or loss. The probability of a car accident under the above mentioned circumstances increases when driving along a rainy highway or down a flooded Miami street. When it rains, not only do Miami roadways and streets become slippery, but visibility also becomes a factor which can result in a car accident.

LEFT-HAND TURN ACCIDENTS
Left hand turn accidents are one of the most common types of accidents that occur at intersections. They often result in T-bone collisions, which can be very serious and lead to injuries, passengers, and even death. If you have been involved in a left hand turn accident, you may be entitled to an insurance claim through the representation of a personal injury lawyer. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm has ample experience handling left-hand turn accidents.
However, before you make a claim, it is important to understand the different types of intersection accidents and how they can be prevented. Intersections are dangerous places for drivers, especially during high-traffic times. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost half of all traffic collisions occur at intersections. This is because there are so many opportunities for drivers to make mistakes. For example, some drivers may run red lights, while others may fail to yield the right-of-way.
There are three main types of intersection accidents: left-hand turn collisions, right-angle collisions, and head-on collisions. Left-hand turn accidents are the most common, followed by right-angle collisions. Head-on collisions are the most serious but also the least common.
