Personal injury attorney Charles Flaxman was an insurance claims adjuster for ten years and he knows how both sides work. Insurance companies are protecting their interests – not yours! They are not your friend and they are not on your side. Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums and making low settlement offers. Charles Flaxman has been negotiating claims for over 30 years and knows how to get the highest settlements possible.Personal Injury Law
If you have been injured in an accident, you may be overwhelmed by medical bills, missed work, and physical pain. It can be hard to know where to turn under these circumstances, but an experienced personal injury lawyer serving the greater Miami area and South Florida can help. You may be able to seek monetary compensation for your injuries if you can show that the person who caused your accident acted in a negligent manner. This generally involves showing that the defendant owed you a duty of care, or the duty to act as any reasonably prudent person would in the same situation. If you can also show that the defendant breached that duty, and that your injuries were caused by that failure to act reasonably, you can seek damages to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. Even if the defendant can show that you were partly responsible for your injuries, you can still pursue damages that are proportional to the defendant’s degree of fault. We understand how insurance companies work, and will work to negotiate the highest possible settlement on your behalf.Auto Accidents
Hundreds of thousands of people are injured in Florida car accidents each year. If you have been hurt by a driver who failed to exercise due care and did not follow the rules of the road, we can help you pursue compensation. Negligence behind the wheel can take many forms, including speeding, failure to yield, running a red light, drunk driving, distracted driving, and numerous others. Serious accidents, including head-on collisions, side swipe accidents, rollovers, and more can result. When you are injured in a car crash, you may miss weeks of work, have unpaid bills, and no idea what your next steps should be. A skilled Miami personal injury lawyer can help. At Flaxman Law Group, we are prepared to fight on your behalf for the most beneficial settlement we can pursue under the facts of your case, or go to trial if needed.Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can be especially serious compared to other types of vehicle accidents because motorcyclists are relatively unprotected in a collision with a car or truck. Particularly given that Florida does not have a helmet law for motorcyclists who are over age 21 and who have sufficient insurance coverage, injuries can be devastating when a negligent driver hits a motorcyclist. Even when the other driver’s negligence is apparent, Florida’s comparative fault laws can present particular challenges for motorcyclists who may be accused of negligent conduct themselves after an accident. An experienced injury lawyer can advocate for you in pursuing a settlement or seeking recovery at trial, even if you were partly responsible for your damages.Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can lead to especially severe injuries given that there is nothing protecting the victim’s body when it comes into contact with a negligent driver’s vehicle. People using crosswalks, sidewalks, parking lots, or other areas may become victims of pedestrian accidents, or even hit-and-runs. Unfortunately, serious harm including spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and paralysis can result when a moving vehicle collides with a pedestrian. These accidents are also more likely than other types of auto-involved accidents to have fatal consequences for the victim. If you have been seriously injured or a loved one has lost their life in a pedestrian accident in or near Miami, a knowledgeable personal injury attorney at Flaxman Law Group can help you pursue the damages you may be entitled to through an injury or wrongful death lawsuit.Bicycle Accidents
Commuting by bicycle is becoming increasingly popular in many cities, and with South Florida’s warm weather, biking is an attractive option for recreation as well. However, cycling carries some risks, and when bikes collide with cars or trucks, serious injuries often result for the rider. Bicyclists do not really have any physical protection, aside from a helmet if the rider chooses to wear one, in an accident with a larger vehicle. After a crash with a car or truck, a cyclist may suffer from broken bones, head injuries, paralysis, and even death. Particularly because bicycle riders are expected to follow the rules of the road, a defendant driver may try to argue that a biker’s own carelessness contributed to their accident. A skilled legal team can help you present evidence in opposition to this argument, and pursue the damages you need in order to recover.Truck Accidents
Victims of truck accidents often suffer more severe injuries than people hurt in other types of vehicle accidents due to the sheer size and weight of tractor-trailers. Whether you were harmed due to a swinging turn, tire blowout, driver fatigue, or another cause, you may be entitled to compensation. A negligent driver may responsible for your injuries, and you may also be able to seek damages from a trucking company for negligent hiring or supervision, among other things. Trucking companies and their insurers may be in a better position to compensate you for your losses than individual drivers. Personal injury lawyer Charles Flaxman has represented many clients in Miami and throughout South Florida in seeking the maximum recovery for their injuries after truck accidents.Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from a car accident, bike accident, medical malpractice, or any number of other negligent acts. Brain injury can lead to short term conditions, such as concussions, or long term disabilities, paralysis, and even death. If you or a loved one has suffered from this sort of debilitating injury, as millions of Americans have, you are probably facing a mountain of medical expenses in addition to significant amounts of missed work. Personal injury lawyer Charles Flaxman helps Miami and other South Florida residents through these obstacles, and is prepared to help you fight for the damages you may be entitled to.Paralysis
If you or a loved one has been harmed in an accident that led to paralysis, you may have suffered any number of different underlying injuries, such as a spinal cord injury, occupational injury, brain injury, or many others. These injuries can occur as a result of car accidents, falls, intentional attacks, or negligence by a medical professional, among other things. We understand how traumatic it can be to suffer an injury that leads to paralysis, as well as the fact that you are likely facing hundreds of thousands to possibly millions of dollars in medical costs over your lifetime, and an experienced personal injury lawyer serving Miami can effectively pursue damages on your behalf.Slip and Fall Accidents
A common source of injuries are slip and fall accidents occurring on someone else’s property, such as in a store or at a neighbor’s house. Most of these accidents belong to the legal category of premises liability, which allows victims to sue property owners if they are harmed due to dangerous conditions on the premises under certain circumstances, such as if the owner knew about the hazard that injured you but failed to provide a warning. If you have been the victim of this kind of accident, you may have slipped on liquid on the floor of a grocery store, tripped on an uneven sidewalk, or been hurt due to a faulty staircase at someone’s home. The medical expenses and lost wages that may have resulted from your accident can give rise to damages for those and other economic losses, as well as non-economic losses such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.Construction Accidents
Construction jobs are some of the most dangerous in the country, with workers regularly suffering severe injuries and even death due to falls, electrical injuries, equipment accidents, and many other causes. Construction accidents are often the result of a failure to follow regulations and negligence on the part of employers. While you can likely file a workers’ compensation claim to cover some of your costs following an accident on a construction site, it is critical to evaluate whether a third party may also be liable for your harm. If you were injured by a defective piece of equipment, you may also have a product liability claim against the equipment manufacturer. A personal injury lawyer experienced in Miami construction accidents can investigate the circumstances of your case, and help you pursue all of the benefits and damages you may be entitled to in order to compensate you for medical bills, missed work, and other losses.Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence
Entrusting a nursing home facility with the care of your loved one is one of the biggest decisions you may make. To find out that the place responsible for keeping your mother, father, or other relative safe and comfortable has acted negligently or even abusively toward your family member is a horrifying experience. Nursing home abuse and negligence can take many forms, and can include physical abuse, failure to provide adequate nutrition, medication errors, and failure to prevent falls, bedsores, and other harm. At Flaxman Law Group, we are experienced in holding nursing homes accountable for negligent and abusive behavior, which can mean pursuing damages from staff, management, or owners of the facilities where the injuries have occurred so that you can be compensated for your losses and pay for future care and medical expenses.Medical Malpractice
When a medical professional injures you rather than heals you, the results can be devastating. Medical malpractice can include numerous acts and omissions, such as failure to diagnose, surgical errors, delayed treatment, prescription errors, and many more. In order to show that a medical professional was negligent in Florida, in general terms you must show that their conduct deviated from what a reasonably prudent medical professional would have done under similar circumstances. A personal injury attorney serving Miami can investigate the facts of your case, and determine whether you have a claim for medical malpractice. If so, we can vigorously represent you in seeking damages to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses, either through a settlement or by going to trial.Experienced Injury Attorney Fighting for Injured Victims in Miami
