Rear-End Collision Airbag Injuries


Hurt in a car accident as a result of the deployment of an airbag in a rear-end collision? Need an experienced lawyer to handle your Personal Injury claim for compensation as result of an airbag-related injury? In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm provides fully-dedicated legal representation with ZERO-OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS to its clients and those that fall victim to bodily injury from airbags after they deploy, for what ever reason.  

Airbag accident victims and the injuries sustained from airbag deployment as a result of a motor vehicle accident or third party negligence such as faulty airbag software, design or manufacturing can lead to a number of physical, psychological, and financial difficulties which require profession legal advice. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm handles Personal Injury claims for those that have suffered physical trauma as a result of an accident that caused the deployment of an airbag. Though meant to save lives, airbags can lead to physical injuries to the face, head, neck, shoulder, chest, back, hips and legs. The force with which an airbag deploys upon impact can be devastating to fragile parts of the body such as the face and neck areas, as these areas receive much of the airbags force upon impact after a collision. Rear-end collisions that lead to the deployment of an airbag can cause the driver and passenger's heads to jerk forward and their shoulders back. When a motorist's head jerks forward it can lead to neck injury. The human neck is very sensitive to violent movement and once the neck area suffers injury from a car or truck accident, Perazzo Law knows from experience that the damage can be permanent. An airbag that deploys as a result of a rear-end collision can also cause bodily injury to the driver's face. As the head jerks forward, the airbag deploys into a person's facial area. If the driver of the vehicle that is involved in a rear-end collision is wearing glasses at the time of the accident, there could be extensive eye injury. An airbag that deploys into the face of a driver that is wearing glasses can lead to blindness, a broken eye socket, or loss of an eye. Shoulder injuries because of an airbag that deploys in a rear-end collision can include water in the shoulder area, a broken clavicle or collarbone. Perazzo Law knows that breaks and fractures from car accidents in Miami are quite common. However, rear-end collisions can result in serious injury to the shoulder area as the shoulders get pressed back by the seat belt as the airbag deploys into the driver's face. Side airbags can also cause shoulder injuries as a result of the force with which they deploy upon impact in a car accident. In Miami, Perazzo Law handles all types of motor vehicle accidents and has ample car accident experience handling personal injury cases that involve bodily harm from airbag related incidents. Rear-end collisions can also trigger multiple airbags to deploy within vehicle that have them. When multiple airbags deploy from a rear-end collision, injuries can include the hips and legs. An airbag that deploys can sometimes impact on a driver or passenger's knees, and result in lacerations, cuts, and even fractures. Fractures to the knee area can require surgical intervention and rehabilitation. Medical expenses to treat and cover bodily injury from an airbag related incident can run into the tens of thousands. That is why Perazzo Law recommends accident victims that have suffered personal injury or losses as a result of an airbag, to make sure they receive proper medical care from your family healthcare professional and legal advice from our experienced Personal Injury staff at our offices in Miami-Dade

Perazzo Law Shares Detailed Information on the Main Injuries Suffered in Car Accidents


Rear-end collisions can have serious long term effects on the lives of those that suffer an accident in which an airbag 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 vital to hire an experienced Personal Injury attorney who knows and understands the life altering effects that head injuries 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 solid 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. Commonly known as 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 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, Perazzo Law 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. See Spinal Cord Injuries


Fractures and broken bones can be consider 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 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.


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
