FAQ's for Miami Injury Attorney

How do I know if I have a case?

If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may have legal grounds for a personal injury claim or lawsuit, especially if another party’s negligence contributed to your accident.  This “negligence” could take any number of forms; contact our offices to discuss your case with an experienced Miami injury attorney.

Why should I appoint an attorney if I have insurance?

Insurance companies can be difficult to deal with, even if it is your own insurance company with which you have a policy.  Appointing an attorney is a very resolute way of signaling to your own insurance company or the insurance company of another faulted party that your rights will be protected.  Even if you already have a settlement agreement, one of our Miami injury attorneys can help you receive this compensation at a faster pace.

Can you really file a lawsuit if the accident happened on private property? What about a worksite?

Yes. Just because a person is on private property or at their place of employment does not mean they forsake their legal rights and protections.  If a dog bit a client on private property for instance, that owner is responsible for the damages the victim incurred. Workers that have been injured on the job are entitled to receive worker’s compensation under Florida state law.  However sometimes an attorney is needed to recover this compensation, or a case involves such gross negligence on the part of the employer that further legal action is both necessary and appropriate.

Should I go to the doctor?

Yes. Sometimes injuries will not appear until hours or days after the accident.  Car accident victims especially should most always go to the doctor, keep a record of all of their medical expenses, and report any further pain and injuries as time goes on.

What if the other party’s insurance company contacts me for a statement?

Do not give this statement; everything you say will be used against you.  Instead contact our offices to appoint an attorney to represent you on your behalf.  The insurance company representatives will know that they will not be able to steamroll your claim for the lowest possible settlement.

What kind of evidence should I collect after an accident?

All identifying information such as name, phone number, driver’s license number, etc.  Take pictures, keep receipts, and any other type of evidence.  It all helps your case.
