HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

A personal injury claim, such as a slip and fall claim, is a type of civil claim that you file against the party (or parties) who caused injury to you. As the injury victim, you are the plaintiff, while the party which caused the injury is the defendant. The defendant in a personal injury claim could be an individual, company or even a government agency. The goal of the personal injury claim is to recover damages that will make you as close as possible to being “whole” again.

To recover damages in a personal injury claim, you must establish that the defendant was at fault. Even though fault may be intentional misconduct, the type of fault at issue in the majority of personal injury claims that we handle in the Miami area is negligence. To prevail in a negligence case, you generally must establish four elements:

  • The defendant owed a duty of care to you under the circumstances.
  • The defendant breached that duty of care by failing to act as a reasonable, prudent person would act under the circumstances.
  • The defendant’s breach of the duty of care caused you to suffer your injuries.
  • You suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant’s conduct such as medical expenses, lost income, pain, suffering and mental anguish.

WHAT INJURY CASES DO WE HANDLE IN MIAMI GARDENS?

Through the years, our attorneys at Englander Peebles have worked with clients in Miami and throughout Florida who suffered many different types of injuries. We can help clients in cases that involve:

  • Brain injuries – Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a person suffers a direct blow to the head or experiences a sudden, violent shaking of the head. TBI can range from a concussion to more severe damage that leads to a coma or death. Many people with TBI suffer permanent physical, cognitive and emotional deficits. Due to their brain injury, they may be unable to work again.
  • Spinal cord injuries – Even a seemingly minor vertebral fracture can cause a person to suffer partial or complete paralysis below the point of the fracture. Many people with spinal cord injuries require ongoing medical treatment, assistive devices such as wheelchairs and assistance with carrying out their daily life activities.
  • Fractures – Some fractures require minimal medical treatment and heal in a relatively short period of time. It depends on many factors, including the age and health condition of the victim. In some cases, a broken bone can lead result in a permanent disability or lead to complications such as infections.
  • Herniated and bulging discs – These injuries involve the rubbery discs between the bones in your spinal column, or vertebrae. When a disc protrudes, it can irritate nerves and cause the victim to experience a great deal of pain.
  • Soft tissue injuries – Many accidents cause damage to muscles, tendons and ligaments. Whiplash, for instance, is a painful injury that results from damage to soft tissue in the neck area. Many rear-end car accident victims suffer whiplash.
  • Burns – Many burn injury victims suffer permanent muscle, nerve and bone damage as well as scarring and disfigurement. They are also at risk for infections and other complications. A burn may require skin graft surgery, plastic surgery and or other types of expensive medical procedures.
  • Electrocution injuries – An electric shock can cause a person to suffer severe burns, seizures, heart problems or death. A victim may be left with permanent damage to skin, nerves, muscles and other tissue.
  • Loss of limbs – The amputation of a limb may occur due to a traumatic event such as a truck accident or workplace incident. If a limb suffers severe injury in an accident, a medical amputation may be necessary in order to save the person’s life.
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy – Also known as complex regional pain syndrome, this type of injury often involves swelling, pain and loss of function in the feet or hands.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder – Many people who experience a traumatic event such as a motorcycle accident may suffer from ongoing flashbacks, nightmares and anxiety. PTSD can be highly debilitating and prevent a person from being able to work and enjoy everyday life activities.

If you are involved in an accident of any kind in the Miami area, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. A doctor can examine you, order proper tests, diagnose you and begin treatment of any injuries that you have suffered, including injuries that may not be immediately apparent to you. A timely diagnosis of your injuries will also be important as you pursue a personal injury claim against the party who caused your injuries.

WHAT DAMAGES CAN YOU RECOVER IN A MIAMI PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

The damages that we seek on behalf of our personal injury clients in the Miami area generally fall into three categories:

  • Economic damages – These are tangible losses such as the costs of medical care, lost income, property damage and other out-of-pocket costs. Medical bills, pay stubs and receipts are different types of evidence which we can use to establish these damages.
  • Non-economic damages – These are intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. We can turn to many different types of evidence to establish these damages. Often, photos and video showing what a person’s life was like before his or her injuries can play a key role.
  • Punitive damages – Unlike economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages are not aimed at compensating a personal injury victim for his or her losses. Instead, these damages are meant to punish and deter the defendant for intentional misconduct or gross negligence.

Even if you were partially at fault for your injuries, you can still recover damages in a Miami personal injury lawsuit. Under Florida’s comparative fault system, your damages would simply be reduced based on the percentage of fault assigned to you. For example, if the total amount of your damages is $100,000, but you were 20 percent at fault, your damages would be reduced by $20,000.

Insurance companies often try to take advantage of Florida’s pure comparative fault system. They try to blame victims for an accident so they can pay as little as possible to resolve a claim. At Englander Peebles, we will aggressively protect your rights when dealing with the insurance companies in your case. We won’t let them get away with shifting blame to you, and we will demand the maximum amount for you.

HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE TO FILE A MIAMI PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT?

The statute of limitations sets a limit on how much time you have to bring a lawsuit after you have suffered an injury. If you fail to bring your claim before the statute of limitations expires, you will likely be barred from recovering anything for your losses. That is why it is important to think about the statute of limitations as you move forward with your Miami personal injury claim.

It takes time to investigate and prepare a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death lawsuit for filing. For this reason, you should not wait to seek help from an experienced personal injury lawyer. You don’t want to wait too long to act and risk losing the opportunity to recover full and fair compensation for your losses.
