People are subjected to two different types of injuries; self inflicted due to negligence on their part and inflicted by others through negligence on someone else’s part. The first type, self inflicted are no one’s problem other than their own, all they can do is hope their insurance will help and they will get back to work before the bills stack up. The second type is the problem of the negligent person or entity that was the cause, it will be their insurer that pays for medical bills, compensation for lost wages as well as undue pain and suffering. As pain and suffering as well as the consequences of a long term injury are rather abstract this is one real reason why an injury attorney in Miami should be called in.
An injury that can be traced to negligence on someone or something’s part must be compensated for. The greatest majority of non-self inflicted injuries come from car accidents but that is only one of many reasons. Accidents while boating are common as are accidents involving commercial vehicles as well as trip and fall injuries.
It is not just a person that can be negligent; it can be a store owner, the city government, the manufacturer of a defective product or a doctor who makes an error. All of these will result in injury, be it physical, mental or both.
A good injury attorney in Miami will be aggressive in demanding maximum compensation. These attorneys have plenty of experience and exposure to injury cases and as a result have a clear understanding of what would constitute a satisfactory award.
In the event the injuries are not life threatening and it does not look as if there will be lifelong implications the injury attorney in Miami will usually try to negotiate an out of court settlement with the insurance company or the insurance companies legal representatives. In the majority of cases an out of court settlement is agreed, however, if the circumstances are different and it appears that the victim will be permanently disabled or disfigured the insurance company will fight hard because they know from experiences that the settlement demand in cases like this is going to be very high. This is where the experience of your attorney comes into play. Even for some lawyers a courtroom is a place they try to avoid, they are facing what can be a sympathetic jury. You want an injury attorney that is aggressive, one who fights hard for your rights and compensation commensurate with the injuries and their impact.
