What a Personal Injury Lawyer Does for You

- Photographs taken at the scene of the accident

We keep these artifacts organized and apply them to your case in the best possible way. When we have built you case, we will attempt to settle with the insurance companies. If a fair amount of compensation cannot be agreed upon, your case may go to court. However, you have no need to worry. We will handle your entire case, so you can heal and rest easy.

Types of Personal Injuries
Are you wondering if your situation qualifies as personal injury? Personal injuries refer to any needless injury that occurred at the fault of another, due to their neglect or recklessness. So, if your injury was caused by someone else and should have been avoided, you probably have a strong personal injury case.
At Accident Lawyers MIA, we handle many different kinds of personal injury cases. From dog bites to wrongful death, we are ready to work hard when we represent you and your family. If you suffered an injury from one of the following common personal injury cases, give us a call.
Slip and Falls
Many factors can cause a victim to slip and fall. Thus, slip and falls are extremely common personal injuries. For example, a person may suffer a slip and fall caused by:
- Debris left on the floor
- Poorly placed objects or fixtures
- Exposed electrical wiring
- Slippery floors
- Uneven stairs
- Cracked pavement
- Poor lighting
- Unmarked stepdowns
- Flooring with holes
- Lifted or torn carpet
- Lack of handrails
Injuries can range from minor to life-changing. Hip and shoulder fractures are especially common slip and fall injuries. Some victims suffer from spinal and brain injuries as well. Depending on the severity of the fall, a victim may need to go through extensive rehabilitation and therapy following the accident.
After hiring your personal injury lawyer, they will begin to build your case. First, they will need to know if your injury occurred on commercial or private property. Then, they will ask what hazards were present that caused your accident. Your personal injury lawyer will then fight to prove that negligence caused your accident. They will do this by looking at the evidence and asking the following questions:
- Was the property owner aware of the hazard?
- Did someone allow this hazard to be present?
- Did a landowner or other party fail to fix the hazard, though they knew it existed?
Our lawyers will investigate by looking at security camera footage and other evidence. We will look for posted hazard warning signs. We will collect this evidence to build your case.
While this may seem fairly straightforward, it most certainly is not. When we go up against those responsible for your injuries, they may say you were at fault instead. They may say that you were distracted, causing your own injury. They may try to prove that you were wearing inappropriate footwear or that you ignored a posted warning sign. When insurance companies or defendants use these pure comparative fault laws, you need a lawyer to combat them.
Brain injuries can be caused by almost any traumatic incident involving force to the head. Brain injuries may result in short and long term effects. Victims have suffered
- loss of speech
- Difficulty sleeping
- Poor memory
- Personality changes
- Inability to handle loud noises
- Mood swings
- Loss of equilibrium
- Ear ringing
- Poor concentration
- Slowed reaction time
Other injuries include difficulty with mobility, coordination, sensation, memory, and communication. Some brain injuries place individuals into comas.
These injuries are truly devastating for victims and their families. This is especially true if a personality or lifestyle change happens because of it. Thankfully, Miami personal injury lawyers can help assist you and your family in recovery through compensation.
Suffering from a dog bite can be a terrifying experience leaving physical and emotional scars. In Florida, dog bite victims are protected. Dog owners are held liable for their dog’s aggressive action. However, this is only true if you were unlawfully on property or provoked the dog. If this was not the case, your lawyer will be able to determine the amount of compensation needed in your case.
If you live in or near Miami, you are no stranger to seeing many pedestrians crossing our roads. So, it’s no surprise the pedestrian accidents are fairly common in our area. Pedestrian accidents happen due to distracted driving or failure to follow traffic laws. Common scenarios include
- failing to stop at an intersection
- Failing to inspect the entirety of an area before proceeding
- Attempting to pass a city bus without slowing down
- Trying to pass a school bus that has its arm down.
Parking lots and roads with no sidewalks are also common places for accidents to occur.
Because a pedestrian has nothing around their body to protect them from collision, injuries are often very severe. Victims may suffer from broken bones, torn ligaments, herniated discs, internal injury and bleeding, traumatic brain injury, and even wrongful death.
A lawyer will be able to look into any other parties that may be liable for injuries. If poor road conditions or broken traffic signals were a factor, the government agency responsible for their maintenance may be to blame.
Car accidents happen often and can be caused by many different factors. Injuries can range from minor to severe to death. If you suffered personal injury from a car accident, seek representation of the Miami personal injury lawyers at Accident Lawyers MIA. We handle all kinds of car accident cases, including hit and runs, head- collisions, rear-end collisions, and more. But, work quickly! The statute of limitations on car accidents in Florida dictates that all car accident cases must be filed within four years of your accident.
This may seem like a long time; however, waiting until after you have fully healed from a terrible injury may not be enough time. So act fast and call Accident Lawyers MIA today!
If you suffered an injury in a truck accident, you need a good lawyer who knows personal injury law well. Why? Truck accident law operates completely differently than car accidents. This is due to:
- Large insurance policies
- Truck maintenance
- Special driver’s licenses
- CDL (Commercial Drivers Licenses)
- Special driver qualifications
- Annual inspections
- More property damage
- Very expensive medical bills
- Severe injuries
- Increased chance of death
Our Miami personal injury lawyers will investigate if the truck driver was speeding or distracted. We will also investigate if the truck was loaded incorrectly. Maybe the load spilled or was not secured. Perhaps the truck was not maintained correctly. This evidence will build an effective personal injury case for you.
Motorcycle accidents can also lead to severe injury. Motorcyclists have nothing to protect them, so their bodies may take the full force of an impact.
Cars and trucks often fail to see motorcycles and hit them when crossing into an intersection or merging. Unfortunately, some insurance companies will immediately categorize motorcyclists as reckless and avoid paying them what they deserve after an accident.
A knowledgeable Miami personal injury lawyer will be able to help. We will work hard to prove that the accident did not happen due to the motorcyclist. We may also look beyond the insurance company for compensation. For example:
- A construction company may be liable due to poor maintenance or road design.
- The manufacturer of the bike may be liable for broken or failing parts.
- An automobile company may be liable for a manufacturing or design defect.
By looking at every opportunity, we may be able to win you maximum compensation for your injuries.
So, document where your accident occurred and what the conditions were like. This can all go into your strong personal injury case.
Uber accident injury cases can be very complex. This is due to the unique relationship of Uber drivers and Uber itself. Uber drivers are independent contractors, meaning that they use their own auto insurance. So, insurance disputes easily become confused. A personal injury lawyer can navigate these very technical insurance laws and assist you in your case.
No family ever hopes to endure a wrongful death. This kind of personal injury is especially heartbreaking, as well as delicate. While no monetary compensation could ever make up for a loved one, compensation can assist a family in picking up the pieces. For instance, wrongful death compensation may help with a loss of benefits, future earning power, and companionship.
Our small firm is known for great customer service, and we will apply this to your delicate case. Please reach out to us and let us know how we can help you pursue a wrongful death case.
