SCHOOL BUS ACCIDENT SAFETY IN MIAMI
MIAMI-DADE: Getting to school across the U.S. means that about 40,000 kids in Miami-Dade are making round-trip rides aboard 1,060 public buses along 880 routes this year. With a student body estimated at some 345,000, enrolled at 392 schools, together with 40,000 teachers and staff, Miami-Dade boasts 4th place among the largest school districts in the U.S.A. These figures, when added to the number of parents driving their kids to school, will add an unwanted dose of mayhem to the already perplexing & chaotic commuting experience. Sadly, with more hasty & distracted drivers enduring further delays amid the rise in traffic, accidents involving school buses may ultimately increase during the school season. Thus, it's important for motorists to abide by traffic laws when approaching a stopped school bus.
MAKING SURE YOUR KIDS ARE SAFE:
- Know your child’s bus route.
- Tell your child to not walk behind the school bus.
- Tell your child to wait for the bus to stop completely before stepping off the sidewalk and attempting to board.
- Tell your child to properly fasten his/her seat belt and stay seated until time to get off or in case of an emergency.
- Notify the school board if there are irregularities with the school bus condition or the driver's conduct.

ORLANDO CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER SHARES INSIGHT ON MOTOR VEHICLE INSURANCE POLICIES IN FLORIDA
Basic auto insurance is mandatory for registered vehicle owners. According to the Perazzo Law Firm, these basic policies are: Personal Injury Protection (PIP) & Property Damage Insurance (PD). PIP insurance coverage safeguards the insured party (driver and/or household relatives on the policy) for up to $10,000 minus deductibles regardless of fault. In the event of an accident that involves personal injury, the healthcare facility or doctor will be responsible for billing the insurance provider once the policy holder signs an assignment of benefits. PD insurance covers damage to another individual’s property as a result of an accident regardless of fault. In Orlando, the Perazzo Law Firm reminds PIP and PD insurance policy holders that these basic policies usually fall short of covering the full extent of injuries or losses. That is why, our car accident attorneys urge Orlando motorists to carry additional policies if economically viable.
The insurance coverage policies listed below (in order of importance) are highly recommended:
- Uninsured Motorist
- Bodily Injury
- Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP)
- Car Rental
For a full description of each type of insurance policy, visit the Perazzo Law Firm’s site or CALL (786) LAWS-411.

SIX-CAR CRASH LEAVES 9 INJURED NEAR FIU
Biscayne Boulevard has been partially closed off following a six-car crash that left 9 injured. The crash occurred in the proximity of Florida International University on Northeast 163rd and Biscayne Blvd a little after 2:30 p.m. as police and paramedics hurried to restore order and attend to the serious injured, two of which were rushed to Aventura Hospital in serious condition.
But what happens when motorists are crashed into and not at fault? Fortunately, all Florida motorists are bound by law to carry PIP and PD insurance, which helps cover medical expenses and damages to those falling victim to a collision. However, determining fault or liability in a multi-vehicle accident can be quite tricky, especially if the motorists that struck another driver is under or uninsured.
In this case, it is best to contact an experienced car accident lawyer. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm strives to provide the best possible representation.

BOATING ACCIDENTS OFF THE FLORIDA COAST
The shores off the Florida coast have much to offer in terms of water sports, tours, and fun. However, the laws of the land may go overboard at sea. Operating a water vessel such as a speedboat, yacht, tour boat or diving boat, requires more than a captain's license or fair. Vessels taking to the sea must be registered & carry valid safety inspection certificates. Also, captains must abide by many set guidelines for making sure they operate their vessels in accordance to locations and schedules. For example, tour boat captains must avoid dive boats & protected areas abundant in coral reef. Boat captains must also obey speed limits in accordance to the location & proximity to other vessels, divers, surfers, or even swimmers.
Along the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, for example, anchoring is illegal on the reef & there are mooring balls used to accommodate dive & snorkel boats. A tour boat operator may not approach moored vessels since snorkelers & divers may be in the water. Failure to avoid them may result in bodily injury or to divers & snorkelers. Charter boat captains have been under the radar as nighttime sailing can easily turn into tragedy given the atmosphere with which party guests handle themselves. Falling overboard is common aboard yachts where alcohol & other substances abound as a means of fun. Like premises liability on land, tour & charter boat operators owe a duty of safety to guests at sea.
BABY POWDER RECALL - ASBESTOS FOUND
Johnson & Johnson recalls it's brand of baby powder after the FDA finds asbestos during testing. Though consumers are asked not to panic, those that have purchased the baby powder under lot No. 22318RB, should toss it in the trash. The lot being recalled tested positive for chrysotile fibers, which are a kind of asbestos, according to the FDA. Though tiny quantities were detected, experts believe that any exposure to asbestos is hazardous, especially to children and infants; which stand a greater chance of developing mesothelioma (a type of cancer affecting the lining of the lungs). An investigation is underway to determine the exact cause of the asbestos found in the baby powder, which Johnson & Johnson believes may be the result of improper handling or even counterfeiting of its famous baby product.

MIAMI DRIVERS - AMONG THE FIVE BEST NATIONWIDE
Despite the growing increase in negligent cell-phone use behind the wheel, a study by new QuoteWizard finds that Miami ranks 4th when it comes to good driving in the USA. The findings are based on data gathered and analyzed from insurance quotes numbered in the millions. Cities taking part were evaluated according to reported accidents, moving violations, and driving while under the influence. Ranked fourth across the country, Miami has Detroit, Louisville, and Chicago as the cities with the best driving residents behind the wheel. The study not only included the best driving cities, but also the worst. Ranking among the top three cities with the worst drivers were Portland, Boise, and Virginia Beach. Though the number of reported accidents may be a determining factor in the results, tickets issued throughout Miami-Dade dropped by 22% due to setbacks in the process of electronic ticket issuing and failure to provide officers with enough ticketing books. Regardless, Miami drivers finally have something to feel proud of when it comes to driving in Miami-Dade County.

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE GIN ILLEGALLY SPIKED?
A 150-year old law could pull Bombay Sapphire Gin off store shelves and bring Bacardy USA and a local supermarket into a federal courtroom. A local businessman has filed a class-action suit claiming that the world-renowned drink is “adulterated” and that Bacardy, which owns the Bombay Brand, is negligently distributing and commercializing this alcoholic beverage, despite its potential for negative side-effects. Allegations stems from the gin’s ingredients, which include ‘grains of paradise’, a typical spice consumed regularly and originating in West Africa. Apparently, and according to the plaintiff’s attorney, the spice may be considered poisonous, despite the unique peppery and warm feeling it adds to the spirit. A Bacardy spokesperson stated that the Bombay Sapphire brand has always been upfront about the ten botanical ingredients that make the drink what it is. In fact, grains of paradise, which is akin to ginger, is available throughout the USA online or in specialty health-food stores. In fact, its popularity has grown given that it is believed to help people lose weight and boost metabolism.

E-CIGARETTES AND VAPING CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES.
Electronic cigarettes have been considered to be relatively safe for those looking to replace tobacco consumption as an alternative to kicking the nicotine habit. However, vaping has been under the spotlight ever since E-cigarette chargers began exploding from erroneous or negligent use. In a recent development and announcement by the Florida Department of Health, an E-cigarette user has died as a result of lung related injuries caused by vaping. This is the first reported fatality among several dozen cases of individuals with lung injuries stemming from consumption of E-cigarette substances. It is reported that nationwide, some 500 cases of E-cigarette users falling ill with 10 users paying the ultimate price from inhaling vape smoke. The Center for Disease and Control advises individuals to refrain from using E-cigarettes until they can determine the exact cause of the fatalities and the reasons behind the illnesses brought about by vaping. In the meantime, the Perazzo Law Firm recommends contacting us online for a FREE initial consultation to discuss a possible insurance claim for compensation from E-cig related injuries or losses.
AI CAMERAS GOT THEIR SITES ON DRIVERS TEXTING & DRIVING.
In Miami, and like cities all around the modern world, motorists can't help but to keep their eyes and hands on their cell phones. In Florida, texting & driving is now illegal, and the use of AI cameras, it's a matter a time before you're busted! In the Land Down Under, for example, AI video technology is set to catch motorists red-cellphone-handed by way of a network of 45 Mobile Detection Cameras. If caught, the law enforcement agency of New South Wales will issue a $232 fine. In Florida, drivers caught texting & driving will be fined $30 & get a point off their license. If caught again, there will be $60 fine with three points deducted if snagged within the next five years of the first violation. Despite the potential dangers that come from texting & driving by way of accidents, there are legal issues to consider in the event of personal injury, damage or wrongful death. Negligent cell-phone use is one of the new major causes of accidents in major cities and ranking over drunk driving and speeding. Florida Law also clearly states that motorists may not use their cell phone while the vehicle is in motion, which would apparently make texting while stopped at a red light legal. However, once drivers hit the gas, their hands must be cellphone free. As of 1/1/20, Florida police will issue fines and until then, motorists will receive a warning; but this depends on the officer that pulls the driver over and the situation.
MED PAY INSURANCE AND HOW IT COMPLIMENTS PIP
What are the advantages of adding Med Pay to your PIP and PD coverage? Basically, Med Pay helps to cover the medical expenses resulting from a motor vehicle accident and absorbs the costs that PIP fails to cover. It's important to remind motorists that in the event of an accident, PIP will cover 80% of the $10,000 limit and that a minor injury such as a broken nose, can easily consume that amount if a trip to the hospital is needed.
But what exactly is Med Pay and how does it work?
Med Pay is optional and according to the Perazzo Law Firm, it is one of the three most valuable additional insurance coverage policies for motorists that only carry the mandatory PIP or PD in Florida. The other two highly affordable and insurance coverage policies include Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist insurance, which stretch beyond their cost.
Med Pay covers 100% of the accident victim's medical expenses in line with the coverage limit, which how much you are covered for according to how much coverage purchased from the insurance provider and also covers the medical expenses for the policy holder and any passengers that suffer bodily injury regardless of fault.

ROLLOVER ACCIDENTS ON MIAMI HIGHWAYS
In early July, Kendrick Norton, a defensive tackle for the Miami Dolphins, was a in roll-over accident which resulted in severe personal injuries and an amputated arm. According to The Highway Patrol arriving at the accident scene, the truck he was driving collided into a concrete divider and flipped over. Though there is no official confirmation on what caused the Florida highway accident, there was another motorist involved that reported no injuries.
Roll-over accidents on highways are quite common given the speeds at which motorists drive and when coupled with the distraction from mobile phones, rollover accidents are expected to rise. Ever since cellphones have taken over our lives, car accidents in Miami have soared, and will keep rising if drivers continue to be negligent behind the wheel and drive at high speeds on Florida highways, avenues, and streets.
In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm handles car accident and insurance claims for compensation.

THE UNDERVALUED IMPORTANCE OF UNINSURED MOTORIST COVERAGE (UM).
Florida ranks 5th when it comes to the number of motor vehicles driving around with no insurance. That may not mean much to the driver, but it may be of great relevance should you or a loved-one fall victim to their negligence. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm highly recommends that vehicle owners that can afford to do so, purchase Uninsured Motorist coverage (UM) or Under-insured motorist coverage (UIM) to complement their Bodily Injury insurance coverage. Though Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Property Damage Protection (PD) are mandatory in Florida, they don't go a long way when covering personal injuries or damages, with the maximum payout being $10,000 for injuries & $10,000 for vehicle damage. After a motor vehicle accident in Miami, the drivers of each vehicle will have some sort of insurance coverage or no coverage. If the driver has no insurance, the accident victim may sue the driver at fault. However, if the driver has no insurance, that usually means he/she can't afford it; hence he/she may be broke & unable to cover the accident victim's medical expenses, damages, or lost wages. Thus, the Perazzo Law Firm suggests purchasing BI & UM or UIM coverage to protect against uninsured or under-insured drivers.

HIT & RUN ACCIDENT IN HIALEAH, JUST ONE AMONG MANY IN MIAMI-DADE -
Hit & Run accidents are quite common in Miami and in almost all Dade & Broward city & suburbs. Sadly, not all hit & run accident victims or family members receive the compensation they deserve following a hit & run accident when the guilty party flees and is never caught. Though most hit & run accidents end tragically & with nobody caught, witness testimony and surveillance cameras can help bring hit & run drivers to justice. Such was the case in Hialeah, when a 32-year old drunk driver was arrested and charged for killing a 73-year old woman after midnight as she crossed an intersection.
In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm understandS hit & run accident situations and what leads to a driver leaving the scene of the accident after a hit & run.

UPS TRUCK DRIVER AND THREE OTHERS KILLED IN HIGHWAY GSHOOTOUT.
Armed robbers hijacked a UPS truck following the failed heist of a jewelry store in Coral Gables. According to the police, the incident started just after 4 p.m. in Coral Gables at the Regent Jewelers at 386 Miracle Mile while posing as U.S. postal workers. When the robbery went bust, the robbers fled which resulted in a police pursuit along Interstate 75. This ended in tragedy last night in Miramar as four people were killed in the shootout which took place during rush hour on the Miramar Parkway near Flamingo Road shortly after 5:30 p.m. Among the dead, were both robbers, a UPS employee and the driver of a stopped vehicle taken as a hostage.
Motorists need to seek alternate routes as Southbound Flamingo Road at Pembroke Road will be shut down as a result of the on-going investigation at Miramar Parkway. Please seek an alternate route.
