PERAZZO LAW ADVISES ON WHAT TO DO AFTER A HIP INJURY ACCIDENT
In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm and its staff is ready to review your case and determine whether you have grounds for filing an insurance claim for compensation from a hip injury accident. Firstly, it is vital to determine fault or negligence on behalf of an individual, corporation, or governing body of an institution, business, public space. In order to establish fault, there must be proof that the hip injury was in face caused by a business operator, motorists, or a individual. Proof of a hip injury can be gathered by way of eye-witness testimony, surveillance camera footage, or pictures of the accident scene. Perazzo Law suggests that accident victims that suffer hip injury, gather all medical and expense records that correspond to the hip injury suffered. Medical and expense records will be used by Perazzo Law to strengthen the claim and will serve to justify financial compensation for hip injuries, which may range from minor to severe in the event of fractures or breaks that lead to hip surgery.
HIP INJURIES AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
Slippery, uneven, or soiled walking surfaces are among the number one cause of hip injuries after a slip, trip, or fall accident.
Some of the most common places for slip, trip, and fall accidents that lead to hip injury are:
• Amusement Parks
• Food Stores
• Parking Lots
• Shopping Malls
• Swimming Pools
All the above-mentioned places have the potential for a slip, trip or fall accident that leads to hip injury because their walking surfaces may be wet or soiled and thus become slippery. Liquids such as soapy water or substances like motor oil can cause a person to slip, trip, or fall and suffer a hip injury. In Miami, Perazzo Law understands that many accident victims that slip and fall may not know that business establishments and operators that serve the public, are obliged by law to make sure their place of business poses no threat of injury to clients, customers, guests, or visitors. If legally found liable or at fault, the business operator, and their insurance provider must respond to a personal injury accident claim presented by the injured party's legal representative. Perazzo Law strives to provide the best possible legal counsel to its personal injury clients that suffer hip injuries within public or private businesses and establishment. In Miami and North Miami Beach, Perazzo Law and its staff offer their hip injury accident clients constant updates on their case are fully dedicated to helping accident victims get the money they deserve for their hip injuries.
HIP INJURIES - CAR ACCIDENTS & AIRBAGS
In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm has vast experience handling car accidents that have hip injuries as the focal point of claims for financial compensation. A car accident that results in hip injuries can be the result of another motorist's negligence as hip injuries in car accident can mean that the injured party was struck on the side by another vehicle; either as a driver or a passenger. (See Passenger Accidents). While rear-end or front-end collisions cause neck and back injuries, side collisions almost always affect the hip and/or shoulder areas. (See Shoulder Injuries). At fast speeds, a side collision can result in severe personal injury to the driver and any passengers as the body is jerked to the hip, with the impact occurring at the height of the hip area. High-speed side impacts can result in a broken hip, the need for surgery and months of rehabilitation. Airbags, which save the lives of thousands of motorists and passengers every year, may sometimes result in hip injury as airbag deployment entails great force. Vehicles that are equipped with side airbags can cause hip injury in the event of deployment in an accident. However, hip injuries from self deploying airbags have been reported and they may sometimes be more severe. (See Airbag Injuries). In Miami, Perazzo Law and our fully-dedicated staff strives to satisfy our clients by providing the best possible results for their personal injury accident claim for compensation from a hip injury in a car accident.
If you, a friend or relative has suffered hip injury in a car accident, in Miami, Perazzo Law recommends contacting us ONLINE for a FREE initial consultation. Perazzo Law offers ZERO-OUT-OF-POCKET costs to our clients in Miami-Dade and Broward.
HIP INJURY ACCIDENTS - MEDICAL COSTS & LOSSES
A hip fracture or a broken hip occurs when there is a fracture or break in the thigh bone or Femur. Accidents that result in serious hip injury can impact a person's quality of life both physically and financially. For example, hip replacement surgery, which is quite common in elderly people that suffer a broken hip in an accident, can cost anywhere from $120K - $150K, depending on how long the accident victim must remain in the hospital. Hip fractures become more common as people get older since bones start to become frail or weak. That is why hip fractures are common especially when a slip, trip, or fall accident occurs. Fortunately, a broken hip may sometimes heal without the need for surgical intervention; but that depends on the severity and location of the injury with regards to the hip bones. According to statistics, over 90% of all hip fracture cases are the result of a fall. Hip fractures can be deadly if complications such as blood clots, bacteria infection or pneumonia ensue surgery. It is said that 20% of hip surgery patients pass away within a year of undergoing surgical intervention. Perazzo Law reminds accident victims that suffer hip injuries to seek medical attention immediately after the accident and make sure that they receive proper treatment. Injuries to the hip area can have serious side-effects if not treated properly. The three main types of hip injuries are:
• Femoral Neck Fracture. Occurs roughly two inches from where the top of the femur bone meets the hip socket. Blood vessels may tear in severe breaks and blood circulation may stop as a result.
• Intertrochanteric Hip Fracture. This a break located some 4 inches from where the femur meets the socket. As a result, the break does not cut-off blood flowing to the femur.
• Intracapsular Fracture: This causes damage to hip's ball and socket. Sometimes the break can tear blood vessels and lead to extensive rehabilitation.
Treatment following hip surgery involves rehabilitation and the time you spend in the hospital depends on your physical state prior to the accident that led to the hip injury. In Miami, Perazzo Law knows that hip surgery may impair the patients ability to walk for an undetermined period of time. Again, it depends on the accident victim's age, physical condition, and follow-up treatment. It is vital for hip accident victims to maintain active and prevent immobility as bedsores, blood clots, urinary infections, and even pneumonia can complicate a successful recovery from hip surgery. Economic losses from hip surgery can be substantial if the accident victim is unable to work and provide for his/her family. That is why Perazzo Law strives to make sure accident victims get the money they deserve from those at fault for their injuries and losses.
