Common Head and Neck injury situations from car accidents in Miami:
- I was rear-ended and my neck began to hurt after the accident.
- My car was crashed into from the side and I injured my head upon impact with the window.
- The car in front of me suddenly stopped and I suffered a severe neck injury.
- What are some of the symptoms related to neck injuries following a car accident?

The statements and questions mentioned above are typical in the aftermath of a traffic accident involving a driver or passenger. It's important to note that accidents resulting in head and neck injuries are quite common. The Miami Car Accident Lawyers
at the Perazzo Law Firm wish to emphasize the critical nature of seeking immediate medical attention for individuals who have sustained head or neck injuries in car accidents.
Therefore, the Perazzo Law Firm recommends that car accident victims who experience head impacts, whether from a collision or a deployed airbag, should promptly request rescue units to transport them to a nearby healthcare facility. This is essential to rule out any injuries resulting from the accident. Head injuries can encompass the facial area, caused by shattered glass or contact with interior vehicle components like the steering wheel or airbag. Facial injuries may manifest as cuts, bruises, or lacerations, which could potentially lead to permanent scars.
Permanent scars can significantly impact a car accident victim's life and may cause mental trauma, particularly if the scar results in a substantial alteration of their personal appearance. Loss of vision is another potential consequence associated with head injuries sustained in car accidents.
The Perazzo Law Firm, based in Miami, specializes in handling cases involving head, facial, and neck injuries for their personal injury car accident clients. Their primary goal is to ensure that these clients receive the compensation they rightfully deserve for their injuries and losses. In the aftermath of a head injury, it is advisable for the injured party to request a CT scan to rule out any potential internal brain damage, especially if the victim loses consciousness or exhibits signs of bleeding.
Facial Injuries Can Include:
- Cuts, bruises, lacerations
- Eye injuries
- Ear injuries
- A broken nose
- A broken jaw
- A busted eye-socket
- A cracked cheek bone
Severe facial injuries often necessitate extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, the coverage of medical expenses, and possibly, compensation for freelance workers who experience lost wages. In Miami, the team of car accident attorneys at the Perazzo Law firm is committed to ensuring complete client satisfaction by addressing their legal requirements and offering continuous case updates. Our goal is to vigorously advocate for the compensation our clients rightfully deserve.
Facial injuries can be classified as permanent if they require medical procedures such as sutures or plastic surgery. For instance, a deep cut may result in a lasting scar, which, depending on its location on the accident victim's face, can be challenging to overcome. Car accident victims who sustain facial injuries should reach out to our experienced team of personal injury lawyers to explore potential claims for compensation. These claims can help cover both medical expenses and any psychological distress associated with the injuries.
Common Head Injuries Can Include:
- Blurred vision
- Temporary loss of hearing
- Brain Injury or Damage
- Temporary Paralysis
- Internal Hemorrhaging
Neck Injuries Can Include:
- Disc Damage
- Long-term physical complications
- Memory loss
- Spinal Cord Injury
Whatever the head or neck injury suffered in a car accident, in Miami, the Personal Injury Staff at the Perazzo Law Firm urges accident victims to seek professional medical attention for an evaluation of any possible internal injury to the neck area, which tend to manifest themselves over time and sometimes not immediately. A professional medical evaluation should include a C-scan or MRI to determine if the neck and cervical spine have suffered damage due to the car accident.
The Perazzo Law Firm shares information on some of the most common injuries after a car accidents
Rear and front-end collisions can have serious long term effects on the lives of those that suffer an accident which causes head injuries such as cuts, bruises, concussions, or internal bleeding. Blows to the head can lead to brain trauma and most often results in serious or permanent injuries that may require short-term medical treatment and long-term use of medications, which impact other bodily organs such as the liver, kidneys, pancreas, intestines, and mental states of mind in general. Head injury can be a determining factor in the life quality of the victim and it is important to hire a dedicated Personal Injury attorney that has the experience and knows about the life changing effects that injuries to the head can have on accident victims. Some of the most serious head injuries from car accidents can result in a number of long-term effects such as: headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, mood swings, tingling sensations in the arms and finger tips, as well as general damage to the nervous system. When head injuries from a car accident are very severe, there may be internal bleeding and surgery will most likely be required. Brain surgery is a very sensitive procedure as well as very costly. Most often, the surgical results to the head trauma accident victim may be successful and the effects minimal, but other times, the effects of brain surgery can have permanent effects on the accident victim's life. See Brain Trauma
Following a collision with another vehicle, crashing into a fixed object, or even spinning out of control and slamming into a light pole, the neck and back area can experience injury to the neck and back area. Radiculopathy
is a common injury due to whiplash, (when the neck violently jerks forward and back causing disc injury) the neck and back are quite sensitive and prone to injury as a result of an accident. Perazzo Law Firm knows that thousands of people are injured in car accidents every year in Miami and that most times the neck and back are the parts of the body that many times go unattended to. That is why, the Perazzo Law Firm offers the most professional legal advice and assistance to help deal with and attend to bodily injury that includes the neck and back. The neck is a very sensitive part of the body as it is comprised of nerves and discs that help control the nervous system together with the brain. When discs in the neck and/or back suffer injury, the physical effects can many times be permanent and expensive, not only due to adjustments in the person's life style, but also to the any treatment or medication needed to deal with the accident victim's neck and back injuries. In some more serious neck and back injuries as a result of a car accident, the victim may be paralyzed and require long-term physical treatment and medication that will have a lasting effect on the victim's quality of life. Perazzo Law urges neck and back injury accident victims to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach offices for a Free initial consultation to find about more about compensation through a personal injury accident claim.

FRACTURES AND BREAKS
Fractures and broken bones can be considered permanent injuries even though fractures heal and broken bones can be mended. However, many times, a broken bone can leave remnants of the injury and never fully heal appropriately. No matter if the fracture involves a finger, toe, or nose, the effect can be permanent. More serious fractures and breaks can include more sensitive areas such as arms, legs, ankles or the pelvis, which may lead to a person never being able to walk again or take part in certain sporting or recreational activities such as sports or dancing. Depending on a person's age, a broken bone can take weeks or months to fully heal. Elderly people may require more intense and prolonged medical care and rehabilitation to help broken bones or fractures to heal following a car accident. Perazzo Law Firm urges car accident victims that have suffered fractures or broken bones to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach offices ONLINE or CALL 888-PERAZZO for a FREE initial consultation to discuss their case. Our entire legal staff is fully dedicated to fighting for our clients rights and make sure that they receive just compensation for their injuries and losses.
BURNS AND ABRASIONS
Though not all car accidents result in severe injuries such as head injuries or life altering effects, many do include bruises, cuts, burns, or abrasions, which can leave permanent scaring. Though cuts, burns, and bruises heal, some more serious injuries can cause aesthetic complications when injuries involve the face, hands, or arms. Facial scars last forever and this can greatly alter a person's life, even after cosmetic surgery has been performed on the accident victim's injuries. Airbags can sometimes cause burns and abrasions. In this case, an experienced personal injury attorney will determine the cause of the airbag deployment, which can be from impact, manufacture defect, or third party negligence. See Airbag Injuries
Wrongful death accidents are by far the most devastating accidents for the family members and loved-ones of the accident victim. Collisions with trucks or at high speeds most often end in tragedy, with injuries that go beyond any immediate medical attention. In most wrongful death accident cases, head and thorax trauma is too severe and the victim's life cannot be saved. In wrongful death accident cases, Perazzo Law Firm knows that proving fault is vital to obtaining compensation for the family of the wrongful death accident victim. See Wrongful Death Accidents
