car-accident-lawyer-miami-289x300In Miami, Jonathan Perazzo and his personal injury staff of motor vehicle accident attorneys recommend U-Haul drivers, passengers, and all third party accident victims to treat the U-Haul truck accident just like any other traffic accident (see What to do after a traffic accident). However, not all U-Haul truck accidents occur while driving a U-Haul truck.

Most people associate U-Haul truck accidents with traffic collisions. However, many accidents involving U-Haul trucks occur while a U-Haul truck is being loaded or when a trailer is being hitched. Moving with a U-Haul truck is very convenient and there’s no doubting that. However, knowing how to load and secure cargo can require proper instruction in order to prevent accidents and injuries from occurring.

IMG_E8109-300x298JONATHAN PERAZZO, PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY AND FOUNDER OF THE PERAZZO LAW FIRM IN MIAMI, ANSWERS THE QUESTION; “WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT?”

“If you are the driver or a passenger that is injured in a car accident, it is highly recommended that you seek medical attention, even if no evident signs of bodily harm are present.” Jonathan Perazzo, a highly dedicated and experienced car accident attorney, with almost a decade of representing clients injured in traffic accidents in Miami- Dade and Broward County, strongly urges accident victims to do this.

From his vast experience dealing with injured parties and filing insurance claims for compensation, the moments following a car accident are crucial to the success of an insurance claim. Injuries to the head, neck, and back are often quite common and sometimes go unnoticed at the time of the crash, manifesting themselves over time. However, by that time it may be too late to seek compensation or reduce the chances of filing an insurance claim which fairly compensates the accident victim and his/her family members in the event of lost wages or crippling medical expenses. After an accident that involves a head-on or rear-end collision, drivers will undoubtedly suffer some sort of neck injury through damage to the cervical spine. Injuries to the cervical spine may result in headaches, numbness in the upper or lower extremities, and sometimes even dizziness. These may result in permanent injuries to accident victims after an accident if not treated immediately and properly through quality medical care. That’s why, knowing what to do after an accident is so crucial to the well-being of the accident victims. Following an accident, victims should present themselves to the nearest hospital for a medical evaluation, making sure to request and keep all medical records of their visit and results. Upon presenting themselves to the hospital, they should notify the treating physician of any pain they are experiencing and any factors not in line with the way they normally feel. For example, after a rear-end or head-on collision, drivers or passengers may feel dizziness or experience headaches, two factors that require a C-scan or MRI of the cervical spine. When a car accident victim suffers a blow to the head or injuries to the face, especially if airbags deploy because of the impact, the neck and cervical spine must be examined properly. Sometimes a car accident victim may experience injuries to the face that may include lacerations and contusions to the nose from banging their face against the steering wheel, dashboard, or from a deployed airbag. It’s worth noting that suffering a broken nose is quite common when airbags deploy, and a broken nose can be considered a permanent injury.
