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.

What Happens When Your Car Accident Was Caused by a Defective Part

car-accident-lawyer-miami-289x300In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm’s car accident lawyers understand that car accidents are usually caused by driver error. However, in certain situations a defective car part can play a huge role. A defective part can contribute to the damages caused or be the very cause itself. Over time, car parts become warn and can fail simply from wear and tear. In order to prevent that, proper and regular car maintenance can help. However, sometimes a manufacturers place profits over safety and release vehicles that are inherently unsafe.

One of the more common defective parts that can result in serious injuries are airbags. When an impact occurs, an air bag within the steering wheel is supposed to automatically deploy preventing serious head injuries. As part of the supplemental restraint system, air bags are also installed to prevent shoulder and leg injures when the origin of the impact is the side of the vehicle. A defective airbag can cause injury if it underinflates, overinflates or deploys unexpectedly without impact.
