We Help With All Types of Accidents
There are many types of accident claims in which a Miami personal injury lawyer will be able to assist you. Some of the most common types are the following.
A personal injury accident, or PIA, is when you sustain injuries such as cuts, bruises, or broken bones. A personal injury accident will generally be the result of negligence on the part of the victim or another party.
A personal injury claim does not include a claim for any property damage. However, it does include wrongful death claims. There are nine major participants in a personal injury claim to be mindful of. They are the following:
- Lawyer – An individual licensed to practice law and who represents a party.
- At-Fault-Party – The individual that caused the accident. Also known as the defendant.
- Plaintiff – The individual filing a suit as a result of sustaining injuries in an accident.
- Adjuster – An individual working for an insurance company to settle a claim and avoid paying money for the claim or paying as little as possible.
- First Party Insurance – Your insurance.
- Third Party Insurance – The at-fault-party’s insurance.
A bicycle accident can result in severe injury or death. If you are injured by an automobile while on a bicycle, you will encounter many of the same issues you would if you were injured in an automobile.
The liability for bicycle accidents will generally come down to negligence, whether another car was negligent or whether you on your bicycle contributed to the accident in any way.
A bus is a large vehicle that can cause significant damage to you when you are on the road. Even a minor bus accident can be devastating. The injuries sustained in a bus accident can be life-threatening.
Bus accidents usually occur when the bus driver is not paying attention. Another common cause of bus accidents is other drivers cutting in front of a bus, forcing the bus to veer away and hit another vehicle. Mornings and evenings are the most common times for bus accidents.
The most common type of accident on the road is one involving cars. The chances of you being involved in a car accident at some point are very high. This type of accident is a common cause of personal injury and wrongful death.
Adjusters and insurers make it their job to minimize the payment of damages as much as possible, which makes it imperative that you hire a car accident lawyer to help you get your due damages. Even if an insurance company is presenting itself as an entity looking out for you, they are actually looking out for their bottom line.
A construction accident is one of the most common types of workplace injuries in Florida. There are many inherent risks present at a construction site that can easily lead to injuries. Moving objects, heavy machinery, dangerous compressed gases, hazardous chemicals, and massive scaffolding structures all pose threats.
Injury-related expenses can balloon quickly, leading to potentially significant damages awards if you team up with an experienced lawyer from Louis Law Group.
Both drivers of other automobiles and pedestrians alike can become victims of a Lyft or Uber accident. Ridesharing has exploded in popularity in recent years. As this industry grows, the number of accidents involving Lyft and Uber drivers grows as well.
Since ridesharing is a new phenomenon, it takes an experienced lawyer to understand the murky legal area in which Lyft and Uber drivers find themselves in.
Given the lack of safety features on a motorcycle, drivers of these thrilling vehicles may find themselves in severe accidents that result in serious injuries. The chances of a motorcycle accident being fatal are higher than for many other types of vehicular accidents.
To help you navigate the complex legal process after a motorcycle accident and receive just compensation, you need an experienced motorcycle lawyer working for you.
Pedestrians have the potential to suffer severe injuries on the road due to negligent drivers. Even when a pedestrian is cautious, they may become involved in an accident and sustain life-threatening injuries.
In the event of an automobile striking a pedestrian, the at-fault driver and their insurance company will do everything in their power to avoid liability and reduce any payments to you. This can leave a victim with huge medical expenses if they do not have an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer working for them.
A slip-and-fall accident is a case of premises liability where a property owner, or its caretaker, have been negligent in the maintenance, repair, or upkeep of a property where an injury was sustained.
Many states require landowners to properly maintain a property to avoid having an unreasonable risk or harm present. However, landowners may sometimes ignore these, which leads to slip-and-fall injuries.
Accidents involving trucks, especially commercial trucks, can be devastating and complex. These are heavily defended cases with multiple parties potentially at fault. If you are involved in a truck accident, you need an experienced lawyer with a record of success in truck accident cases.
