Typically, car accidents are caused by negligent drivers who fail to observe rules of the road, failing to pay attention to other vehicles, distance between other cars, maintain their vehicles, exceeding the speed limit, etc. However, a driver’s ability to pay attention to the conditions of the road and the flow of the traffic can be affected by the carelessness of a trusted doctor or pharmacist.

We trust licensed and trained professionals without question. Whether its a doctor or a pharmacist or a mechanic, we assume the professional we hire to perform a service or prescribe medicine is trustworthy and holds our interest as a priority. However, at times these professionals make unintended mistakes or place their own interest and profit above the safety of their customers and patients. When it comes to prescribing medicine, it is easy to misdiagnose a disease. If a doctor fails to perform sufficient tests or fails to properly review findings, then an illness may be misdiagnosed, and the wrong medicine and treatment may be prescribed.

Miami-Car-Accident-Tips-300x200

The Miami car accident lawyer at the Perazzo Law Firm, Jonathan Perazzo, shares insight into car accidents that involve parking and the common accidents that occur while looking for or pulling out of a parking spot.

Every motorist must eventually detain their vehicle and get out. This action is called parking. Every driver knows this. But what many drivers don’t realize is how many accidents occur during the whole parking procedure, and how common parking accidents are in cities like Miami, Orlando, and Kissimmee. Parking your car or truck, be it at a Publix parking lot; between two other cars on a city street, or in the driveway of your home, requires attentiveness that go beyond basic driving skills. Just like turning left at an intersection requires the use of your turn signal, so should parking your car to avoid and accident require the use of proper signaling, as well as ample reaction time. Many drivers in Miami, for example, spend seemingly precious moments of their time looking for a parking space on congested city avenues or streets. When they spot a parking spot, they may maneuver their vehicle very abruptly by either making a sudden stop or lane change. Sudden stops and abrupt lane changes are a main cause of car accidents in Miami and other major cities in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Orange County.

car-crash-1451244-300x225The Miami car accident lawyers at the Perazzo Law Firm recommends that responsible parents and guardians have a serious conversation with their teenagers drivers to discuss the dangers that exist when getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle in Miami. According to information available by the Florida Highway Patrol, some 3200-motor vehicle related fatalities were reported in just over 2900 accidents. These figures place Florida at the top when it comes to traffic accident-related deaths. It is estimated that close to 70,000 teens are involved in car accidents every year in Florida, with a disturbing number of these accidents resulting in fatalities to drivers and passengers in car accidents. These figures require immediate action by parents, guardians, and even the authorities to help save lives and prevent injury to teenage drivers, passengers, and other innocent third parties, because when teenagers get behind the wheel of motor vehicles, the chances of being involved in a deadly car crash are extremely high. But why? Firstly, because teenagers and cellphones literally go hand and hand, with cellphones seemingly glued to the palm of almost every teenager. Unfortunately, when teenagers are behind the wheel, their cellphones are too, with the euphoria of driving worthy of a selfie, a text message, and even a social media post. There are a number of things that responsible adults can do to highlight the dangers and foster safe driving habits for teenagers.
