Miami-Dade Personal Injury Attorneys
Have you been to Midtown Miami lately (NE Second Avenue and 36th Street)? What about West Kendall, Coconut Grove, Doral, or even Brickell Avenue Bridge? If you have recently visited any of these places, then you know that traffic is an ever-present problem in Miami—and in Florida, generally. And with more cars come more car accidents.
Did you suffer an injury resulting from a car, motorcycle, or big truck accident? Did some other kind of accident cause your injury? In either case, Florida law may entitle you to compensation.
Florida law entitles personal injury victims to receive monetary compensation for legally recognized losses. These can include lost wages (due to time off), lost future wages (due to diminished earning capacity after the accident), and medical and hospital bills (resulting from the accident). These losses can also include pain and suffering, emotional and mental distress, and other non-economic damages that, while less obvious, still disrupt your ability to live a normal life in the way that you did before your accident.
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 403,111 in-state automobile accidents in 2015 resulted in injuries. Many of these victims, perhaps like you, didn’t know what to do next. It is easy to feel overwhelmed after an accident. You probably have many questions and few, if any, answers.
Don’t fret. For more than 40 years, Meldon Law has worked diligently to provide answers and results to personal injury victims. Our Miami-Dade personal injury attorneys can help you too, contact our firm today.
What is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury refers to injuries of the body, as opposed to damaged property. Personal injury claims arise when people act unreasonably, and their actions lead to your harm. The law actually requires every person to act reasonably toward everyone else—what the average, sane, law-abiding citizen would do. This is called a duty of care, and it means that people may not act however they want, harming others, without consequence.
If an unreasonable action (or even a failure to act) hurt you, reach out to us—we can help! Injuries for which you can receive compensation include catastrophic injuries (such as traumatic brain injuries), whiplash, cuts and bruises, loss of teeth, muscle strains and sprains, and much more.
Your right to compensation depends on our ability to establish two things: liability and harm. We must show that someone is legally responsible for your accident and that this accident, and not something else, injured you. This process can include evidence gathering, negotiations with insurance companies, and more. Florida statutes create a relatively short time frame for you to seek compensation for personal injury claims, so act now. The longer you wait to seek representation, the more likely it is that your clock will run out.
