In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm deals with car accident victims everyday. That’s because driving in Miami can be an absolute nightmare to anyone that takes to avenues, streets, and highways. According to published studies, motorists in Miami are considered among the worst in the nation, followed by New Jersey and Massachusetts. But why is driving in Miami, or Florida for that matter, so dangerous? Some of the reasons for the high number of car accidents may include:

  • Failure to use turn signals


In Miami, the accident lawyers at the Perazzo Law Firm understand that long distance buses sometimes break down on the road and other times are involved in accidents that lead to injuries and losses to passengers and other motorists. Most often, long distance bus accidents that occur on the highway are the result of either poor maintenance of the vehicles or human error or negligence.

When a driver or bus company employee acts negligently, which can be by failing to maintain equipment in proper manner, speeding, tailgating, or another form of negligence, accidents may happen that result in injury or death to passengers or other motorists.

Products Liability – What to know about defective products or poor services that lead to injury and losses

christmas-present-1443609-640x480-1-300x225-Can I sue a company after a product causes personal injury?

-Can a service provider be liable for injuries?


Yes, a client can sue their personal injury lawyer. Personal injury lawyers have a reputation for being scrupulous when it comes to cashing in on their clients injuries. Though this is a common misconception, there are cases when personal injury lawyers do not place their client’s best interest at the forefront of personal injury insurance claims.

Such was the case of a Florida resident that filed a lawsuit against the personal injury law firm that represented him. In the claim, the former client of a prestigious Florida law firm alleged that the attorney handling his case, convinced him to undergo spinal cord surgery which ultimately left him paralyzed from the neck down. The Florida man, who had suffered lumbar disc injury in a car accident, claims that he was recommended spinal cord surgery by his personal injury lawyer and his doctors, the former stating that surgery would help to increase the compensation settlement offered by the insurance provider. It’s a common practice for personal injury lawyers to suggest surgical intervention if it helps to increase the amount of economic recovery, which ultimately enhances the personal injury lawyer’s fees. The plaintiff is also suing the surgeon, the rehabilitation center where he recovered, and the manufacturer of the surgical instrument that caused his spinal cord injury during surgery. With nearly $3 million in medical fees since his surgical ordeals began in 2015 following the car accident that resulted in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar injury, the Florida man is seeking compensation to cover his debts and provide funds with which to cover future expenses. According to the lawsuit against the personal injury law firm that handled his case, the Florida man was advised to proceed to trial rather than settle with the insurance providers, which had offered a settlement in the millions of dollars. The firm is also accused of hiring expert witnesses that only served to ruin his chances of winning the case.
