How Can I Know Whether I Have A Legal Claim?

In most cases, if your injuries were caused by negligence or recklessness, Florida law allows you to seek a personal injury claim and compensation. For example, if a traffic accident in North Miami or another city led to loss of limb, you may have a claim. If you contracted an infection in hospital and lost a limb, you may have a medical malpractice claim in North Miami or your community. If you are not sure whether you have a claim, contact a personal injury attorney to review your situation.

My Insurance Company Has Offered Me Money – Does This Mean I Don't Need A Personal Injury Attorney?

Not necessarily. Most insurance companies want to settle cases quickly and inexpensively. The problem is that amputation is permanent and over your lifetime the costs of this injury can be very high. You will need prosthetics that will need to be replaced every few years and you will need rehabilitation, physical therapy, and specialized medical care. You may face a smaller income for years if your current job is very physical. An initial insurance offer may not cover all these costs, so it is a good idea to at least get a legal opinion before signing any insurance documents.
