FLORIDA Personal Injuries

Accidents can happen to anyone, at any time, and anywhere. Whether it is a car crash, a slip and fall accident, or a workplace injury, these incidents can have a significant impact on your life and the life of those close to you. Not only can accidents cause physical harm, but they can also result in emotional and financial distress which might prevail for years. 

In many cases, accidents occur due to the negligence or recklessness of others. If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s actions, you may be entitled to compensation. This is where Aronfeld Trial Lawyers come into play.

What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law is a legal practice that focuses on helping individuals who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others. The goal of personal injury law is to hold those responsible for the accident accountable and seek compensation for the damages that the injured person has suffered. Personal injury law covers a broad range of accidents and injuries, including:

If you have been injured in any of these accidents or another type of incident caused by someone else’s actions, you may be entitled to compensation.

What You Might Regain in a Personal Injury Lawsuit:

The compensation you can recover in a personal injury lawsuit will depend on the specific facts of your case. Generally, you may be entitled to the following damages:

  • Medical expenses: This includes the cost of medical treatment for your injuries, such as hospital bills, doctor visits, and medication.
  • Lost wages: If your injuries have caused you to miss work, you may be entitled to compensation for the wages you would have earned if you had not been injured.
  • Pain and suffering: This refers to the physical and emotional pain you have experienced as a result of your injuries.
  • Property damage: If your property was damaged in the accident, such as your car in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repairing or replacing it.
  • Punitive damages: In some cases, you may be entitled to punitive damages, which are designed to punish the person responsible for their reckless or intentional conduct.
  • It’s important to note that the amount of compensation you can recover will depend on the specific facts of your case, and it’s essential to seek the advice of our experienced personal injury attorneys who understand your legal rights and options.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be wondering whether you need a personal injury lawyer or not. While it is possible to handle a personal injury claim on your own, working with our experienced attorneys can help ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

Here are some reasons why you should consider hiring our personal injury lawyers:

The knowledge of our personal injury lawyers, which amounts to over half a century of combined experience, has helped us successfully navigate the legal system in a variety of personal injury cases. Although we are a relatively smaller law firm than many others in Florida and beyond, we and our clients find this works to our advantage: Our decorated, board certified, and considered team of attorneys dedicate meticulous and detailed attention to each factor of your case in order to maximize our sides’ arguments and the compensation you receive. 

Unlike the lawyers who represent major corporations like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Target, and Disney, our team of lawyers does not get paid unless we reach a settlement or win your case in court. Therefore, like our clients, we are just as determined and driven to make sure your personal injury case reaches a successful conclusion. 

We understand the complex laws and regulations that apply to your case, and our team continues to provide clients with valuable guidance on how to proceed and avoid common pitfalls that could jeopardize the claim.

  • Negotiation skills: Our Personal injury lawyers are skilled negotiators and can help you negotiate with insurance companies and other parties involved in the case to ensure that you receive a fair settlement. 
  • Resources: Aronfeld Trial Lawyers has been investigating, gathering evidence, and retaining experts for decades in order to support the various personal injury claims we have seen. We also help our clients find the best medical treatment providers to ensure they receive the care needed to recover from their injuries.

Since the firm’s founding in 1991, Spencer Aronfeld and his team of experienced attorneys have been passionately and successfully pursuing justice on behalf of the injured and overlooked. We have spent decades litigating medical malpractice, maritime personal injury, auto accident, and child injury cases to name a few; and over the years we have brought our clients headlining verdicts and life changing settlements. Although we might not be a massive legal enterprise with thousands of lawyers across the world, we find that this makes our work more human, and further impassions the representation we provide to clients everyday. If you have been injured, contact us today so we can begin the fight for you!

For a small fender bender where there is no injury, no pain, and no discomfort, we do not believe you need to hire a lawyer. Simply report the accident to local law enforcement and your insurance company. We do believe that it’s a good idea to seek medical care even if you’re unsure of how significant your injuries may be because many injuries take hours or even days to appear. Given that Florida has a very strict PIP 14-day rule that means you must treat within the first 14 days in order to get your insurance to pay for your medical bills.

Yes. First, get the medical care you need. If you are in a lot of pain after the accident or have suffered a broken bone, we recommend you go to the nearest emergency room by ambulance if necessary. Once you have stabilized medically, call our office and let us help you investigate your claim and get you the money damages you are entitled to.

Every traffic accident has different values. Even the same injury is worth more or less money depending on a multitude of factors ranging from the age of the victim, the amount of property damage, the recovery from the injury (does it require surgeries, prolonged time off from work), and most importantly how much insurance coverage is available. Since bodily injury insurance is not mandatory in Florida, even catastrophic accidents may have little to no value if there is not adequate insurance coverage to compensate the victims. 

If you are injured, yes. That is because the claim is being made against your friend’s insurance company, not your friend directly. If the person is truly your friend they will want you to get compensated for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses that you incur due to their careless driving. Either way, speak to us and we will help guide you through the process. 

This is the urban myth most insurance companies want you to think so that you will be hesitant to make a claim. However, if you are at fault for causing a car accident that results in a claim in Florida, your premiums may go up or you may get dropped.

 In Florida, you have four years to file a claim against an individual. Ff you caused your Florida car crash, five years to sue your own uninsured or underinsured motorist carrier. 

Under Florida‘s new PIP system, you have only 14 days in which to seek medical attention after a car accident. This deadline is a requirement to make a claim for compensation through your PIP insurance. If you’re outside the 14 days you still can make a personal injury claim against the party that hit you but your insurance will not pay your medical bills. Either way, it’s important to consult with us as soon as possible, please call our Miami personal injury lawyers for a free consultation
