Miami Accident and Injury Lawyer
801 Brickell Avenue, Suite 900
Miami, Florida 33131
Many people have had experiences in which an attorney has given them advice
on matters that ranged from tax advice to business matters and even a
filing for divorce. Yet many of these people, along with a large cross-section
of our society in general, do not understand how an accident and injury
lawyer fills a vital role in our legal system. On this page the accident
and injury lawyer at the Doan Law Firm Miami will explain some of the
basic concepts of personal injury law and how these concepts apply in
many everyday situations.
What Is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is primarily concerned with assuring that people have
their legal rights to compensation (payment) for their injuries and property
damage protected, either in court or when dealing with more powerful groups
such as insurance companies, large corporations, or even their local and
national governments. The way people access this protection is through
a personal injury lawyer.
Sometimes known as an accident and injury lawyer or attorney, a personal
injury lawyer helps those who have been injured recover damages. Damages
are the costs that arise from medical care, lost earnings, repair or replacement
of personal property, and many other costs that can arise after someone
has been injured in an accident.
Personal injury lawyers, like their clients, are only interested in justice
for someone who has been injured. These lawyers will first gather all
the available facts related to the client’s injury and reconstruct
how the accident happened and establish who was at fault. Once this has
been completed, the attorney will attempt to negotiate an agreement with
those responsible for the damages to his client. Should this fail it may
be necessary for the lawyer, with the approval of the client, to file
a lawsuit to force the responsible party to pay those damages.
What Types Of Cases Does An Accident And Injury Lawyer Represent For His Clients?
Personal injury lawyers will tell you that there are no “typical”
injury cases because each case is always unique in both its facts and
in the injuries his client may have suffered.
