In Miami, the personal injury lawyers at the Perazzo Law Firm share insight on why it’s important to notify the police following a traffic accident.

After an accident involving motor vehicles, cyclists, scooter operators, or pedestrians, contacting the authorities to report the accident is fundamental for determining fault for the accident. Establishing fault for a traffic accident is highly important, not only for the vehicle owner or injured parties, but fundamental for the success of a potential insurance claim for compensation, especially when there are personal injuries involved.

These greater speeds increase the chances of suffering more severe personal injuries from car accidents, and the chances of being involved in a car accident become more probable when your vehicle is not in proper condition. For your vehicle to be considered in proper condition for driving under adverse weather conditions, vehicle owners and operators should verify the quality and functionality of the parts of the vehicle most important when driving in the rain or in a storm.

TALLAHASSEE — This past Thursday, the Florida Supreme Court crushed a prominent attempt to legalize marijuana.

A constitutional ballot initiative presented by Make It Legal Florida was ruled misleading. Attorney General Ashley Moody ruled against the ballot after asking the justices to inform if the initiative would be fitting for a future ballot. The proposal by Make It Legal would have allowed Florida voters to determine if to permit Floridians, aged 21 and older, to possess and consume as much as 2.5 ounces of marijuana. The sponsor behind the initiative had raised $8.2 million for the effort, which is supported by Florida medical marijuana industry.  Additionally, Make It Legal Florida had also gathered over 556,000 of the 891,589 signatures necessary so that the measure can make the 2022 ballot. The initiative would have needed 60 percent of the vote in order to be added to the state Constitution had it made the ballot. Make It Legal Florida needs to redraft an entirely new amendment if they expect to make a future ballot. The lawyer representing Make It Legal, George Levesque, submitted a request for comment to the organization’s chairman, Nick Hansen. However, the requests for comment were not responded to by Hansen. In an unsigned opinion, five of the seven justices pointed out the use of the word “permit” in Make It Legal Florida’s initiative ballot summary. The justices contended that the amendment failed to effectively inform Floridians, that marijuana possession and consumption would remain illegal at Federal level despite being allowed under state law. “A Constitutional amendment cannot unequivocally ‘permit’ or authorize conduct that is criminalized under federal law,” Canady wrote. “A ballot summary suggesting otherwise is affirmatively misleading.” Matters such as these have been presented before the Florida Supreme Court on several occasions. According to Canary, when an amendment legalizing medical marijuana onto the 2016 ballot was being considering, the initiative supporters were able to steer clear of this snag. Ben Pollara, who ran the 2016 medical marijuana campaign, stated that Thursday’s decision by the Court highlighted the body’s rightward lean under Gov. Ron DeSantis. Three Court justices, all appointed by DeSantis, voted to strike Make It Legal Florida’s initiative from the amendment. Both the Florida House and Florida Senate filed briefs opposing the initiative. In 2021, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and New Mexico have made marijuana consumption legal, with at least 17 states and Washington D.C. legalizing its recreational use.

CANNABIS CONSUMPTION AND FLORIDA LAW

IN MIAMI, JONATHAN PERAZZO, FOUNDER AT THE PERAZZO LAW FIRM, EXPLAINS WHY YOU SHOULD CONTACT A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER AFTER A MINOR CAR ACCIDENT.

car-accident-lawyer-miami-289x300Following a minor car accident, be it a rear-end collision or side impact that results in a dent, you are entitled to file an insurance claim to cover any damages to your vehicle. In Florida, all registered vehicle owners are obliged by law to carry the minimum insurance consisting of PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and PD (Property Damage) coverage. Both insurance policies cover a maximum of $10,000 in personal injury / vehicle damage expenses. Thus, it is always useful to contact a car accident lawyer to ask about filing an insurance claim if you don’t want to pay out of pocket for even minor damage to your vehicle, especially since your insurance providers are not in the business of providing coverage free of charge. That said, you have the right to request something that you are legitimately entitled to. But what about a minor collision that results in bodily harm, such as whiplash resulting from being struck by another motorist? Some minor accidents do not lead to injuries, but others do, with some of these minor injuries manifesting themselves overtime. Victims of minor car accidents may not necessarily feel any pain or discomfort after the accident, but may develop headaches which are the direct result of injury to the neck area. That is why, contacting a car accident attorney is always highly recommended and an experienced car accident attorney will almost always recommend a medical evaluation to rule out neck or spinal cord injury through an MRI. However, medical studies such as x-rays or an MRI may cost the car accident victim anywhere from $500 – $3000 depending on the facility and doctor fees. Unless you want to pay out of pocket, then there is no need to contact a car accident lawyer. But most people don’t have money to burn, especially when they can easily have an experienced lawyer file an insurance claim to compensate their expenses. Through an insurance claim, a car accident lawyer will present all medical bills and losses to the insurance provider and if necessary, litigate on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve for any losses stemming from even a minor impact. It is important to remember that neck injuries require medical care in order to prevent any neck injuries from getting worse over time. But why contact a lawyer and not go directly to your insurance provider? Simply because most insurance providers will offer a settlement that may fall short of covering your losses. Thus, the help of a dedicated car accident attorney is always a viable option for getting righteous compensation and fair settlements on behalf of insurance providers. Furthermore, the motorist at fault may deny any wrongdoing and when/if this happens, it will be very difficult to obtain any compensation at all. Thus, having a car accident lawyer on your side fighting for you is always the best option after a minor car accident. Like the saying goes, “better to be safe than sorry”.
