The Perazzo Law Firm’s staff of car accident attorneys, understand that almost all traffic accidents will involve an insurance claim for compensation, either to cover medical treatment for injuries or financial expenses for repairs to damaged vehicles.

That is why, an insurance claim through a personal injury lawyer will be required following a car accident in Miami.

The Perazzo Law Firm reminds car accident victims that it is important to gather information regarding the road and weather conditions at the time of the car crash, and seek professional medical care to treat injuries. It is also important to pay attention to your surroundings to determine who may have been a potential witness to a crash.  Many private residences and commercial establishments have surveillance cameras which may have recorded the car accident and help provide an easy way to prove which driver was at fault. It is also important to take note of the first responders, including names and vehicle numbers. Over time, a tremendous amount of information may simply be forgotten making proving a case more complicated. It is also important to track your medical treatment and physical therapy in order to be able to prove the full extent of the damages and injuries suffered. IMG_E8109-300x298

However, in certain situations a defective car part can play a 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.
