When you’ve been injured in an accident of any sort, you could qualify for monetary compensation if someone else was at fault. Find out by working with a Miami accident lawyer.
If you were injured in an accident caused by someone else, you can hire a Miami accident lawyer from Lavent Law to file a personal injury claim on your behalf. While most people think of hiring an attorney after a car accident, this is not the only injury situation you can seek compensation for. The key factor in knowing whether you can sue is not the type of accident—but who caused it.
In order to have grounds for an injury claim, someone else must have been negligent or at fault. Detailed below are only some of the accident types where an injury is caused by the actions or inactions of someone else. If you think you have a case, whether discussed here or not, you should speak with an attorney from our office as soon as possible.
As this is Florida, water is everywhere. The chances of being injured on a boat are much higher than in other parts of the country. Whether you suffered a broken bone, brain damage, or something else, the boat’s operator could be responsible. However, so could passengers, the boat’s manufacturer, and even workers at the pier.
Car and Truck Accidents
One of the most common types of personal injury cases, car and truck accidents can lead to serious injuries. In Florida, personal injury protection insurance will pay for some of your medical bills and lost wages, but it typically isn’t enough, creating the need to hire a Miami accident lawyer to help you seek full compensation.
Slip-and-Fall and Premises Liability Incidents
Premises liability cases are difficult to prove because we must demonstrate where you were hurt, how it happened, and that the property owner could have prevented it. For example, if you tripped on carpet that had been torn for weeks, the property owner could be negligent for failing to fix it. However, the property owner could deny that you were on the grounds lawfully or quickly remove the hazard after your injury, making it necessary to begin work on your case immediately.
Dog owners have a responsibility to keep their dogs secure and restrained. If you were bit by a canine and the owner did nothing to prevent the attack, he or she could be negligent.
Getting hurt in a motorcycle crash can cause serious damage and injuries, but due to incorrect popular stereotypes, most riders aren’t treated fairly by the insurance companies or even by a jury. This makes it necessary to have a Miami accident lawyer representing you to protect your legal rights and financial future.
Product liability cases typically arise because a manufacturer has sold a product that was dangerous or did not perform as intended, leading to an injury. For example, a toy made with lead paint or safety equipment that fails could both be examples of defective product cases.
Compensation for Your Injuries
A Miami accident lawyer from our firm can help you get the most money for your case. This includes economic damages to compensate for the expenses and financial losses you have already incurred. Medical bills, lost wages, and therapy would all fit within this category.
You may also receive non-economic damages to pay for how your quality of life has suffered due to the injury. For example, if you cannot run, exercise, or play with your kids due to injury-related pain, this is a prime example of pain and suffering. This type of loss might not be financial in nature, but it still entitles you to compensation.
