Personal Injury Lawyer in Miami, FL
Have you sustained injuries due to the negligence of another person? You should seek medical attention and legal action immediately after suffering from physical or financial harm in an accident. We understand the costs associated with litigation and their impact on someone who has suffered physical or personal damages, medical bills, and the possibility of disability. Our lawyers are prepared to invest time and effort in your case by offering contingency-based legal services to you. This means that you are not required to pay any legal fees to us until your case is decided and compensation is awarded.
How Our Personal Injury Lawyers in Miami, FL Will Investigate Your Case
Once you give us a call or visit any of our offices, we will ask you about:
- The manner in which the accident occurred
- Its effect on your life
- The accident’s impact on your earnings and livelihood
- Whether you had prior medical conditions or injuries
- Whether you previously faced litigation
- Who your dependents are
Our goal is to serve your best interests. Your answers to the questions above will help our lawyers determine whether you have a legitimate case and whether or not you have enough evidence to file a claim.
Unlike many law firms that only seek quick settlements, our injury attorneys have built a reputation for staying with our clients and pursuing their claims over the long haul. Should the parties responsible for your personal injuries fail to pay you the full value of your claim, we will pursue a case in a legal trial on your behalf. In fact, our team starts trial prep from the moment we are contacted by injured parties.

What Should You Do When Insurance Adjusters Contact You?
At some point after an accident, insurance adjusters might reach out to you. If these adjusters call you on behalf of your own insurance company, you can speak with them. However, you are under no legal obligation to say anything to insurance adjusters representing the negligent party.
In a bid to exploit you, such adjusters may try convincing you that you do not need an attorney, that the insurance company will give you a fair compensation package, or that you will get your compensation much faster by immediately agreeing to a settlement.
Regardless of any promise issued by these adjusters, you should decline their offers politely yet firmly and talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer. By allowing a lawyer to handle your insurance claim negotiations for you, you will be in a better position to win a fair settlement that covers all of your present and future expenses that arise from the accident.
Understanding the Statute of Limitations
In Florida, there is a very specific timeframe within which personal injury claims must be filed. Based on the type of case and the circumstances surrounding it, the timeframe for filing a claim can range from as little as 6 months to a maximum of 7 years. Typically, someone injured in Miami will require adequate time to collect and examine all of the evidence relating to an accident. The sooner you reach out to a lawyer, the better your claim’s outcome will be. In case a government entity is involved, it is recommended that you start the claims process sooner rather than later since statutes related to government cases are normally shorter than standard statutes.
