Personal Injury Law in Miami

Personal injury claims are a type of lawsuit in which the plaintiff seeks financial compensation for a loss or injury that another person causes due to negligence. Losses can include physical injury, property damage, and damage to one’s reputation. The other person or parties’ negligence can be intentional or unintentional; it won’t matter in a personal injury case.

Hiring a Miami personal injury lawyer is integral to filing a personal injury claim. Though you could represent yourself in your claim, having an experienced attorney on your side who’s knowledgeable of Florida’s personal injury laws can be an asset to you. 

Your personal injury attorney will protect your right to seek compensation for the damages you incur. The legal professional will also protect you from the other party’s insurance company or lawyers who may try to avoid responsibility for your losses or convince you to settle for unfavorable compensation. 

Your lawyer will use their years of legal knowledge and experience to prove the other individual or group’s negligence and document how your injury and losses directly correlate to their negligence. Personal injury cases involving intentional and unintentional negligence come in many forms including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Products liability
  • Boating or maritime cases
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Wrongful death
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Medical device cases

Choosing the Right Miami Personal Injury Lawyer

When you’re ready to find a personal injury lawyer in Miami, you’ll discover that the city has many practicing attorneys. Hiring legal representation who will work closely with you and advocate for your best interests while protecting your rights is always ideal. Pick someone with an established track record of successfully representing personal injury cases in the past. 

Instead of choosing the first personal injury lawyer you consult, it helps to hire a legal professional with a reputation for treating their clients with the utmost respect and professionalism. Your case could take several weeks or months to conclude, so you want to work with an experienced law firm that prioritizes communication with its clients as they pursue compensation for damages. 

Compassionate lawyers understand that clients want to know how their cases are progressing, so they’ll provide detailed updates until they settle the cases or take them to trial. When a personal injury lawyer ensures their clients are comfortable throughout the case, it’s almost as though clients become partners during the lawsuit.

To help you choose the right Miami personal injury lawyer for your claim, consider asking the following questions during your initial consultation:

  • Do you have negotiation or trial experience? No one will know the outcome of your claim upfront. Having a personal injury attorney with negotiation skills and courtroom experience increases the likelihood that they can represent you inside and outside the courtroom.
  • Do you have a heavy caseload? Sometimes, attorneys have large caseloads, which prevents them from providing individualized attention to each client. 
  • How experienced are you with personal injury law? Attorneys often practice different areas of Florida law. Choosing a lawyer with personal injury law experience is better than hiring a lawyer with minimal knowledge or experience in this legal field. 
  • Have you handled a personal injury case like mine before? Again, selecting a lawyer with experience handling cases similar to yours is ideal. If the personal injury attorney has experience managing lawsuits like yours, they may know which legal strategies to use when attempting to recover damages.

    Attorney Sam Levine and his team were amazing from start to finish with working with my family during a very traumatic and difficult time. My wife at 7 months pregnant with our daughter was hit by a school cargo van transporting children. … More My 6 year old son was in the car at that time and actually the van hit on his side. Attorney Levine was so compassionate and caring to my wife and family. He was so professional and from the very beginning promised to support us through this traumatic experience and the legal process. My wife and son had to both go to the hospital and receive medical care. My wife had to be monitored for concerns of pre-term labor. Again, Attorney Levine was sure to educate us on what to expect throughout the legal process and he was a great representative for my family. We didn’t have to deal with the stressful aspects of getting our truck repaired and paying our medical bills. He and his wonderful team including Darrian, were beyond helpful. Attorney Levine have been advocating for my family to secure the best legal settlement and ensure the best recovery. We are truly grateful for the firm’s service. Attorney Sam Levine and his team are truly God sent. My wife has a strong faith in the Lord and Savior and our prayers were answered beyond measures by allowing Attorney Sam Levine to represent us through this process.

A Proven History Of Winning Personal Injury Cases

A winning case history serves as the mark of a reliable personal injury attorney team. It exemplifies their skills and demonstrates how reliably they can represent their client’s interests.

Steinger, Greene & Feiner has an extensive history of successful case outcomes, including several multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts for some of our clients most affected by personal injury. While our past results do not guarantee future case outcomes, they do provide the data you need to have confidence that our Miami injury attorneys know what it takes to win cases.

Here is just a sampling of our past case results:

  • $11.1 MILLION Dram Shop Verdict for a motorcycle accident client injured by an Okeechobee County Eagles Club patron who had been served for 11 hours and then allowed to leave the premises.
  • $8.1 MILLION Truck Accident Verdict for a client critically injured by a wrecker truck, who became physically unable to work in addition to having severe mental anguish and a loss of capacity to enjoy his life.
  • $1.4 MILLION Truck Accident Verdict for a father injured in a collision involving two tractor-trailer trucks in Collier County, which is known for its typically conservative injury lawsuit rulings.
  • $835,000 Auto Accident Verdict for a collision caused by a police officer working for the City of Delray Beach, Palm Beach County.

The Personal Injury Claim Process

We at Steinger, Greene & Feiner understand that the personal injury claims process can be complex and confusing for many people. The general steps include:

  • The Gathering of Evidence: Immediately following an accident, you should collect as much evidence as possible to support your future claim. Evidence can include witness statements, photographs, and medical reports of your injuries.
  • Consultation with a Personal Injury Attorney: After collecting evidence and seeking medical attention (if necessary), you should contact a Miami personal injury lawyer. The legal professional will review your case details and help you explore your legal options. 
  • Determination of Liability: Your attorney will collect additional evidence through investigation to determine who is responsible for your damage as well as the extent of their liability. 
  • Calculation of Damages: Your lawyer will review your damages, including everything from property damage and medical bills to other relevant documentation. They’ll calculate the total damage and pursue that figure as compensation from the negligent party.
  • The Pursuit of a Settlement: Personal injury lawyers will seek a settlement from negligent parties and insurance companies. They’ll negotiate fair compensation on your behalf while ensuring your rights stay protected. 
  • The Filing of a Lawsuit: If neither party can agree on a favorable settlement, your lawyer will file a lawsuit to take your personal injury case to trial.

During the entire claims process, your Miami personal injury lawyer from Steinger, Greene & Feiner will be at your side, fighting hard to protect your best interests and recover your damages. We have experience handling investigations into accidents, negotiating settlements, and navigating appellate proceedings. 

There’s no way to know how long your personal injury case will take to settle or reach a court verdict. Most cases take 12 to 18 months or longer to conclude, from filing to settlement or verdict. Various factors contribute to the time it takes for a claim to be over, such as the extent and severity of your injuries and the willingness of the negligent party to reach a favorable settlement.

Don’t let the uncertainty of your personal injury case’s timeline dissuade you from pursuing compensation. Our law firm can provide legal representation and guidance for as long as necessary. 

Types of Personal Injury Cases

At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, our legal team has ample experience navigating various types of personal injury cases in Miami such as:

Auto Accidents

Accidents involving cars, trucks, and motorcycles are some of the main causes of accidental injuries and death in the country, not just in Miami. You may consider pursuing a personal injury claim if another driver’s negligence causes you damages like medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages.


Slips, trips, and falls fall under premise liability law, which applies to commercial and public spaces. If you or someone else sustains injuries due to an accident involving dangerous conditions that the property owner knows about, there may be a basis for a personal injury claim. 

People often assume that slip-and-fall lawsuits are relatively straightforward, yet that’s not always the case. Sometimes accident victims experience the symptoms of their injuries days or weeks after the incident, which can complicate the case.

Workplace Accidents

You may qualify for compensation if you sustain injuries from a workplace accident resulting in lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, we have experience handling cases involving government employees, independent contractors, and workers’ compensation claims.

Defective Products

When a manufacturer fails to ensure that its products are safe and defect-free for consumers, it may be liable for injuries and damages. Unfortunately, product liability cases are often complex due to big corporations backing the manufacturers. Still, our Miami law firm will always fight to pursue justice for our clients and ensure manufacturers are liable for defective or unsafe products they put on the market.

Compensation and Settlements in Personal Injury Cases

The damages that you can pursue during a personal injury claim in Miami depend on your unique case. After a Miami personal injury lawyer from Steinger, Greene & Feiner reviews your claim, they may pursue compensation for damages like:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property loss
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium or the loss of companionship from a partner or spouse

The compensation awarded in a personal injury claim depends on the case’s specifics. The victim’s injuries, their severity, possible disabilities, and their ability to work will influence the compensation amount.

After an accident, the negligent party or their insurance company may try to settle everything early without engaging with a personal injury lawyer. Since opposing attorneys and insurance agencies prioritize saving money, they may not offer a reasonable settlement for your damages. 

You should avoid agreeing to an early settlement without guidance from your Miami personal injury lawyer. It’s also a good idea to defer all questions or concerns from the insurance company to your attorney so they can negotiate a favorable settlement without violating your rights.

Frequently Asked Questions

According to Florida’s car accident laws, you have four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit, in most cases. This is known as the statute of limitations. Every Florida driver is required to carry personal injury protection insurance (PIP), which covers a percentage of your medical bills, lost income, and other out-of-pocket expenses after the accident. You may receive benefits from PIP regardless of who was at fault for the accident, but you may be eligible to also file a third-party insurance claim or lawsuit for expenses not covered by your PIP.

If you were partially at-fault for the accident, you may not be entitled to full compensation for your expenses because of Florida’s full comparative negligence fault rule. This rule states that the plaintiff’s compensation amount will be reduced by a percentage that equals their share of fault for the accident.

No lawyer can tell you exactly how much you will receive for your car accident injuries, but they can help you estimate the amount you can seek in your lawsuit. The amount of damages awarded to car accident victims may include past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, car repair costs, and other expenses related to your injuries and property damage. The amount may also include a monetary value for any pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment in life you experienced.

For personal injury cases like car accidents, you pay no fees upfront to your lawyer. You only pay us if we get money for you through your settlement or jury-award through the courts.

Our car accident lawyers are dedicated to helping you recover every dollar you're entitled to, and we use our intimate knowledge of Miami’s courts to help win your case. Call us any time at 1-800-560-5059 for your free, no-obligation consultation with our team today.
