How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Claim

Personal Injury Claim

After an injury, two important factors determine if you have a personal injury claim. The first is if you truly suffered an injury, and the second is if it was caused by the negligence of another person. Injuries are unexpected yet common events that can happen virtually anywhere. Some cases where the injury is caused by the negligence of another person are medical malpractices, dog bites, motorcycle and vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip-and-falls, and so on. As obvious as these accidents are, determining whether or not you have a personal injury case can be complicated. This is due to the...

Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Result in Millions of Dollars in Losses

Traumatic Brain Injuries - Miami Personal Injury Attorney

Traumatic brain injuries are no small matter. Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are classified as mild or severe, but even a mild TBI can have long-term effects. This is especially true when the victims aren’t treated properly because they seem to be okay. A mild TBI often has no lasting consequences but may keep a person out of work or school for a few weeks or months. However, severe TBIs can have life-altering impacts that lead to the need for intense medical care for the rest of your life. It makes sense, of course – the brain is the control...

What Should I Do After a Serious Motorcycle Accident?

What Should I Do After a Serious Motorcycle Accident - Miami Personal Injury Attorney

In many ways, it is hard to imagine a “minor” motorcycle accident. After all, such accidents are almost always very violent events, at least as far as the motorcyclist is concerned. The bike almost always goes down, and the rider is on the bike. One-vehicle, two-vehicle, it doesn’t matter. The motorcycle rider and any passenger are out there in the open, with nothing between them and injury but a helmet and maybe some leather or other protective clothing. They will always hit another object or the ground if ejected, and if not, they are dragged with the motorcycle, grinding them...

Porn Star - Taylor Jackson - Tesla Autopilot - Distracted Driving - Miami Car Accident Attorneys

With the invention of cars with autopilot features, it was only a matter of time before someone filmed a porn in a self-driving car. Recently, adult film star, Taylor Jackson, and her boyfriend uploaded a film to PornHub that shows the couple having sex in the front seat of a Tesla Model S driving on autopilot. The Tesla self-driving system is described as semi-autonomous and according to the company, “is intended for use with a fully attentive driver, who has their hands on the wheel and is prepared to take over at any time.” Tesla’s instructions did not prevent Ms. Jackson...

Calculating Pain and Suffering After an Auto Accident in Florida

Calculating Pain and Suffering After an Auto Accident in Florida - Miami Traffic Accident Attorney

Traffic accidents often lead to injuries. Injuries almost always lead to pain. Pain is pretty much the definition – or at least one definition – of suffering. Would it make sense that you could recover damages for the medical bills for your traffic-accident injury, but not for the pain and suffering that accompany that injury? It is difficult to put a monetary value on pain and suffering, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recover damages for it. In fact, Florida law explicitly endorses the recovery of damages for pain and suffering as a result of injuries incurred in an accident...

Can You Sue After Suffering a Workplace Injury?

Can You Sue After Suffering a Workplace Injury - Miami Personal Injury Attorney

Under normal circumstances, an employee injured on the job in Florida cannot sue the employer for damages. Workplace injuries are covered by workers’ compensation, and that is normally the only compensation available to the employee. Workers' compensation is intended to limit employer liability while also giving injured employees guaranteed levels of compensation without having to sue their employer to receive compensation.  Workers' compensation law provides a recovery schedule that gives a degree of certainty as to what you will receive for a particular injury at work, as it sets forth an amount of damages allowable for each particular kind of...

The Truck Driver Shortage Puts Everyone at Risk

The Truck Driver Shortage Puts Everyone at Risk - Miami Truck Accident Attorney

Despite the fact that truck-driving jobs can now pay well above the median household income, America has a truck driver shortage. The demand for drivers versus the supply of drivers indicates that the country needs about 51,000 more drivers. The shortage is leading to a number of issues. Too few drivers result in longer shipping times and higher costs. With the growing amount of commerce coming through online merchants such as Amazon, the declining ability to ship products via road is coinciding with a growing demand to do exactly that. The result can be delayed deliveries and higher costs. But...

Should You Settle After Your Car Accident Case?

Should You Settle After Your Car Accident Case - Miami Personal Injury Attorney

Miami Car Accident Attorney - If you have been injured in a traffic accident and the other driver is at fault, like night follows day, you will receive a settlement offer from the other driver’s insurance company in short order. It might cover your property damages – damages to your car, most commonly – but it might not. It might cover your medical costs, but it might not. It might cover your lost wages from the time you had to take off from work as a result of the accident, but it might not. If you are a betting person,...
