It is not news that a severe personal injury is distressing and can have a significant influence on several areas of your life. If you’ve suffered an injury, you will all of a sudden have a lot to deal with including medical expenses, insurance claims, and employment interruption, not to mention the actual injury. You might also want to pursue compensation after the accident if there was negligent or wrongful conduct on someone’s part and you think you have a valid personal injury case.
If you have never had to do this before, you will probably find all of these tasks to be daunting, especially when you’re also preoccupied with healing and recovering from your injuries. Attempting to set out on your own to deal with a personal injury claim might be very difficult. Most times, people who try to handle their own personal injury cases end up with a lower settlement, if any at all, and an unnecessarily longer claims process.
Hiring a seasoned and informed personal injury lawyer is the best approach to ensure that your personal injury lawsuit is handled correctly and you get the settlement that is truly fair to your personal injury case. You cannot afford to jeopardize a fair compensation by trying to navigate personal injury laws on your own.
If you were seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence, the steps you take today can have a huge impact on your future. Understanding how your accident occurred and understanding your rights will be crucial to getting the financial compensation you need for your physical and emotional recovery.
Don’t leave your future to chance. Talk with a lawyer who is well-versed in personal injury law can explain your rights. Hire an attorney who will go the extra mile to get positive results for you.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
When it comes to a car accident lawsuits, Florida is one-of-a-kind. The majority of the other states employ an at-fault insurance system, but for Florida, it’s a no-fault jurisdiction. What does this mean? If you have first-party Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits, you must use them all up before the other insurance company will pay for your pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills. If you’ve used some, but not all your PIP benefits, the other insurance company will subtract what you didn’t use from the total amount they will pay.

With our law firm, we are here for you and make sure that every compensation owed to you is delivered.

When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, it can be quite harmful and usually grave injury occurs. Cars and other vehicles are large, powerful, and move at high speeds. Individuals walking outside are rarely protected by external armor or prepared for the force of a car accident.
During a collision with a pedestrian, the forward momentum from the car is transferred to the person. This can cause them to be thrown into the air or pushed several feet in another direction. When they hit the ground, the pedestrian can get head injuries, broken bones, internal bruising, cuts, lacerations, and all kinds of other injuries.
Remarkably, people can survive being struck by a car if they get the proper medical treatment. If you are an injured person in a pedestrian accident, you are entitled to an equitable settlement. Our injury attorneys are here to support you every step of the way during your personal injury claims. We take our attorney client relationship seriously and will do everything in our power to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries and other losses.

We also help Miami clients with hurricane insurance claims being denied in bad faith.
People in Florida who have experienced hurricanes know that these storms can cause a lot of damage to homes and property. That is why many people in Florida buy insurance before a storm happens. This way, if their home is damaged, they will be able to pay for the repairs.
Sadly, even people who have insurance and pay their premiums every month can be left without help if their insurer refuses to pay a claim. This is often because of bad faith or a minor issue.
If you have a hurricane-related insurance claim, it is important to speak with our experienced Florida hurricane insurance claim lawyer. These personal injury lawyers will ensure that your insurance company does not cheat you out of your compensation in such a trying time.
