Losing a family member or loved-one in a motor vehicle accident is always a devastating and tragic loss, especially when it involves the negligence of another driver or third party wrongdoing. Sadly, fatal car accidents in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties occur all the time, with fatal car accidents ranking at the top as a principle cause of death nationwide. Private Vehicles, Public Transportation, Rideshare Companies like Uber and Lyft account for almost all fatal accidents. According to studies carried out with regards to fatal car accidents, it is estimated that there are 1,3 million reported automobile related fatalities each year, accounting for some 3,300 deaths per day in the USA. The average age for those involved in fatal car crashes ranges from 15-44. Furthermore, recent fatal car accident studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows that there is a 46% greater chance of backseat passengers suffering fatal injuries than those behind the wheel or riding shotgun.


Perazzo Law understands that there are a number of factors that contribute to fatal car accidents in Miami. Reckless driving and failure to abide by basic traffic laws are among the main causes of car accident fatalities. Negligent and reckless driving includes speeding, driving while drunk, intoxicated or medicated, or distracted by cell phone use while behind the wheel. If any of these situations apply to a fatal car crash involving a family member or loved one, you may have a case for wrongful death liability. Fatal car crashes go beyond emotional consequences, as those left behind may be faced with extreme financial challenges, thus a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed by a professional personal injury law firm experienced in obtaining just compensation for a fatal car accident claim in Miami. These financial challenges may include medical expenses, lost wages, broken homes, funeral costs, as well as property loss, irreparable damages, and traumatic life altering experiences and spiritual wounds that sometimes not even time can not heal.


Perazzo Law knows that a good rule of thumb is to contact one of our Miami Personal Injury Car Accident attorneys immediately after a fatal car accident and to do so ALWAYS before discussing the case with an insurance provider, be it the deceased party's insurance provider or the alleged guilty party's insurance provider. NEVER, under any circumstance, accept a settlement without first consulting one of our professional Wrongful Death / Car Accident attorneys in Miami or North Miami Beach. Insurance providers are quick to offer settlements that will clearly benefit them, as they don't really care about neither the deceased nor the loved ones left behind following a fatal car accident. Perazzo Law knows that insurance companies will always put their own best interests first and offer the least possible monetary compensation to the victim's family or loved ones, as well as try to capitalize on the deceased family members critical and emotional state following a fatal car accident in Miami. Insurance providers know all too well that the emotional state of those directly affected by the loss of a loved-one after a fatal car accident may lead to hasty settlements. That's why, the Perazzo Law Firm highly recommends talking to one of our Miami or North Miami Beach car accident attorneys before initiating any kind of contact or settlement for the losses from a fatal car accident in Miami. Even though the victim's loved-ones or those initiating a car accident fatality lawsuit may be in a critical emotional state, and the bottomline is that the negligent party and his/her insurance company must comply with our Miami clients claim for righteous compensation.


It is the duty of our professional Miami Personal Injury staff and Car Accident attorneys to prove a fatal car accident was due to the negligent acts of another motorist or third party involvement. Third party involvement in a fatal car crash can be determined as negligence on behalf of a manufacturer, distributor, or service provider of the vehicle that caused the fatal car accident. In other words, if a motorist just had his/her brakes done and the motorist's brakes don't work when coming to a red light at a busy Miami intersection, thus causing a collision that results in a fatality, then third party negligence comes into play in a wrongful death lawsuit. Hence, it is absolutely vital to the success of the wrongful death lawsuit and compensation claim, for the fatal car accident victim's loved-ones or family member to hire one of our professional Miami Personal Injury lawyers immediately.


The family members or loved-ones of the victim of a fatal car crash cannot simply expect to receive compensation from wrongful death by simply stating a loved-one died in a car crash. There must be solid evidence to support the wrongful death claim. 

Our professional Miami staff will work arduously to gather any and all necessary documentation and records to maximize the chances of a favorable compensation outcome.

Our Miami Personal Injury Staff and Wrongful Death Attorneys will need to gather all medical records and bills; autopsy reports; and any other proven expenditures following the fatal car accident. Furthermore, our Miami Car Accident attorneys will gather reports from any rescue teams and police authorities that may have either witnessed the fatal car crash, taken testimony for any eyewitnesses, or the submitted official report. Our Miami Car Accident staff investigating the wrongful death claim will also gather physical evidence to support the claim, such as photos, video footage, eyewitnesses, and thorough investigation of the fatal car accident crash site.

Our Miami Wrongful Death staff will determine compensation according to lost wages, future benefits, any property inheritance, as well as any additional information with which to maximize the chances of a successful lawsuit and favorable compensation. It's important to keep in mind that a fatal car crash may not always lead to immediate death. Many times a car accident victim may undergo extensive suffering and rehabilitation which may lead to death long after the car accident occurred. Hence, only a professional and dedicated car accident attorney possesses the skills needed to provide their client with the full service representation in a wrongful death claim as a result of a fatal car accident in Miami.
