Sometimes accidents are simply accidents. No one is at fault, or your own carelessness may cause you harm. We are all guilty of being clumsy or distracted at times. However, in many situations, accidents are not actually accidental. Instead, so-called accidents are the result of other people’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional misconduct.
When you are injured in an accident that is caused by someone else’s negligence or malice, then you may have the right to pursue compensation. When other people do not behave and act as carefully as they should, then they are responsible for the harm they cause. The only way for the legal system to hold that person liable is to require them to pay you compensation.
This compensation is intended to make up for your economic and non-economic injuries, including your medical expenses and pain and suffering. It is best to work with a personal injury lawyer in Allapattah to obtain this compensation.
By hiring a lawyer, you improve your chance of obtaining compensation overall. Without an attorney, insurers are more likely to deny your claim. Also, hiring a lawyer enables you to maximize the compensation you receive. Without experienced and aggressive legal representation, an insurance adjuster will push you to accept a low-ball settlement offer.
In some personal injury cases, you will need to go to court, even if you do not need to go to trial. A lawsuit enables your attorney to use the discovery process to obtain more information and evidence. Also, if your case is not resolved through a settlement, then you have the option to go to trial. Then, a jury will decide whether you have a valid claim, and if so, how much compensation you should receive. You will need a lawyer to handle the legal processes and possibly to represent you at trial.We Offer Comprehensive Personal Injury Coverage

Following an accident that was someone else’s fault, you will need compensation. You are going to face medical bills and, most likely, future medical expenses. You are going to be out of work and losing your usual wages. If you are badly injured, you may not be able to return to your previous job. Between the expenses and loss of income, you need an insurance settlement or court ruling to remain financially stable and not use all of your savings.
Our Allapattah personal injury attorneys will fight for you to receive the maximum compensation for your:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Reduced earning capacity
- Loss of normal life
- Loss of consortium—your relationship with your spouse
When another person’s careless, reckless, or malicious behavior caused your loved one’s death, call us right away. Just as that person would be responsible for the victim’s injuries, they also are responsible for that person’s death. Your family member cannot take that person to court, but a surviving family member or personal representative can. By working with an attorney, your family can hold the at-fault party responsible and pursue compensation for your loved one’s medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, the loss of financial support, your emotional distress, and more.Let Gerson & Schwartz P.A.
