Recently, there has been a lot of attention focused on the potential safety hazards of child seats manufactured by Graco Children’s Products, Inc. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) now has opened an investigation into whether Graco handled the report of the potential defects in the child seats properly. The problem with the car seats involves the buckles on these car seats, which might get stuck in the latched position. These buckle defects could compromise the safety features of the car seat and place the child’s life in danger during an accident because it might not be possible to get the child out of the car seat quickly.

One of the worst things that can happen to a parent is to have a child injured or killed. However, when that injury or fatality could have been prevented, it is crucial to have attorneys who know how to gather the evidence to prove liability. The skilled Miami car accident lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. have more than 130 years of collective experience in developing strong cases that lead to compensation for the wrongs done to our clients.

The management of the investigation into the problems with the Graco car seats and their buckle systems might have been negligent, leading to unnecessary injuries to the children due to the delay. After the NHTSA placed pressure on the company to act in response to the defect, there were more than six million child seats recalled, which is the largest recall of child safety seats in the history of the United States. The current investigation into whether the recall was handled properly was based on potential delays in reporting the issue and taking appropriate action.

Backover accidents are a very common type of collision, especially when a person is backing out of a parking space or driveway. During the holiday season, starting with Halloween and extending through the New Year, these types of collisions increase. One of the reasons for this increase is that there are many people in shopping centers, out on sidewalks, and visiting family. This also is a time when drivers may be distracted by the emotional and financial demands of the season, leading to more situations when a person does not pay enough attention and care before traveling backwards. Even low-speed backover accidents can lead to serious harm because victims often get pulled under a vehicle.

A person who is injured in a backover accident or who has had a loved one injured or killed in a backover accident needs experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. The knowledgeable and dedicated Miami car accident lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. collectively have more than 130 years of experience fighting successfully for the rights and interests of our clients.

Even as technology scrambles to create safer backup scenarios, human negligence continues to lead to devastating harm. Many car manufacturers already have installed back-up cameras in their vehicles in order to comply with the mandates that likely are going to impact every manufactured vehicle in the next few years as part of the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). In addition, there are other safety devices that alert the driver to an object in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. However, even with all of these safety features, there still are many accidents that happen simply because the driver did not check the rear and side-view mirrors before moving in reverse.

For many years, the only time that American drivers saw roundabouts was when they traveled to another country; however, this is changing quickly. Roundabouts or traffic circles are supposed to increase the safety of drivers by slowing down vehicles in intersections and road exchanges.

When there are traffic accidents, the resulting harm may lead to extensive medical treatment, lost work, and an inability to meet financial obligations.

There are many different things that should happen following a car accident, including getting necessary medical treatment. However, one of the most important things that must be done is to gather the evidence that demonstrates the liability of the other driver. This can be done in many ways, but one of the most compelling pieces of evidence may be surveillance video or photographs that are taken at the scene of an accident. In today’s technology age, it is common for there to be multiple cameras focused on an intersection or other section of road.

It is crucial to have an attorney who knows how to prove that the other person was responsible for the harm caused during the accident. The dedicated Miami personal injury lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. have more than 130 years of collective experience in uncovering the evidence that is crucial to the success of a personal injury case. We know how to demonstrate liability in order to recover compensation for our clients.

At the heart of a car accident case is the determination of which driver took what actions that caused or contributed to the car crash. In some car crash cases, it may be necessary to demonstrate how third-party liability contributed to the collision. The demonstration of causation and liability may be done through accident reconstruction, witness testimony, police reports, and evidence at the scene of the accident. However, there are times when the evidence in inconclusive or unreliable and the drivers or other parties involved in the crash have different versions of events. This is where images that capture the events of the crash can play a pivotal role.

There are many different causes of serious accidents, but one of the most common is when a driver runs a red light and impacts another driver who was proceeding through the intersection legally. In fact, there was a recent accident in Northwest Miami-Dade that led to the death of two drivers after one of the drivers ran a red light, according to a recent news article.

Car accidents that occur in intersections often lead to serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in this type of collision, or any other, the skilled Miami personal injury lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. are ready to fight to get you the compensation that you deserve. Our law firm has spent more than 30 years getting justice for our clients.

Across the United States, there are approximately 700 fatalities each year as a direct result of a driver running a red light, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Around 100,000 people are seriously injured because of these accidents. One of the reasons that crashes involving vehicles that ran red lights are so serious is because of the high rates of speed that are involved in these collisions. The vehicle that runs the red light often is traveling in excess of the speed limit, especially if they were attempting to beat the light. The other vehicle involved in the accident also tends to be moving through the intersection at normal road speeds because the light was in their favor. The impact forces of the collision lead to serious injuries and, frequently, fatalities. These accidents are very common in urban areas due to the high ratio of intersections with traffic lights.

The failure, or potential failure, of airbags has been featured prominently in the news over the past several months. The expansion of the most recent recall of vehicles with Takata Corporation-manufactured airbags makes the severity of the risk of harm even more clear.
