The Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

With more than 100 years of experience, our Miami injury lawyers have made a positive impact on our community by helping to change laws, influence legislation and set a legal precedent to better protect consumers. We prepare every case for trial and work as a team to pursue the best possible results for every client we represent when any of the following results in injury or death:

  • Medical malpractice: When the birth of a child turns into a nightmare because of the mistake of a health care professional, when a surgeon performs an improper procedure, when a doctor misdiagnoses a serious illness, when a nurse administers the wrong drug or dosage, or in any other instance of doctor error, hospital negligence, or medical mistake, we can help.
  • Car accidents: It only takes one second to permanently change someone’s life. In a split second, a distracted driver, drunk driver, reckless driver, or driver who violates a traffic law can cause serious or even fatal injuries. At Freidin Brown, P.A., we can help you fight for the compensation you need and deserve if you have been injured in a serious car accident.
  • Trucking accidents: Unsecured cargo, overloaded trucks, and fatigued and poorly trained truck drivers make Florida roadways dangerous for everyone else. Pursuing a truck accident claim requires an lawyer who is experienced in handling claims against insurance companies, trucking companies, and federal regulators. After a truck accident, you need our firm.
  • Defective products: Product designers, manufacturers, and sellers have a duty to deliver products that are safe for consumers to use. When they fail to do so, our lawyers can help hold them accountable through a product liability lawsuit. Whether you were injured by a dangerous drug, a defective auto part, or a hazardous household appliance, we can help.
  • Premises liability: In Florida, property owners are responsible for providing a reasonably safe environment for their visitors. If they fail to keep their premises safe, and someone is injured as a result, they can be held accountable through a premises liability lawsuit. Whether you were injured in a slip and fall accident or a dog attack, our firm can help you seek justice.

Additionally, Freidin Brown, P.A. offers representation for a wide-range of other personal injury claims, including:

Florida Personal Injury FAQs

Why Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

When someone else is at fault in an accident, it’s important to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer. A knowledgeable lawyer will have the resources needed to investigate the accident and help you understand the personal injury lawsuit process ahead of you.

At Freidin Brown, P.A., our team has more than 100 years of combined experience representing individuals who’ve suffered serious injury or lost a loved one due to the negligent or reckless acts of another person or business.

Experience. Knowledge. Results.

A personal injury lawyer can act as your advocate after an accident. He or she will provide you with critical information about your case and guide you in your pursuit of maximum compensation for your injuries. Benefits working with a lawyer after an accident include:

Legal Advice: An experienced lawyer with a track record of achieving successful results can advise you on how to legally address injuries sustained from a car accident, truck accident, medical mistake, or defective product. A personal injury lawyer can answer important questions that can improve the likelihood you will receive full and fair compensation for your injuries, including:

  • What evidence or photos should be collected?
  • Who should I talk to after an accident?
  • How should I document an accident or incident that has resulted in serious personal injury to myself or a loved one?

Case Evaluation: Two of the most important questions after a Florida accident are “Do I have a case?” and “How much is my case worth?” An lawyer who has handled hundreds of accidents just like yours can provide you with an accurate assessment of your case. Understanding the legal issues that may arise in your case can help you determine whether pursuing a personal injury lawsuit is necessary to fully recover after another person or business harms you or your family.

Experienced Legal Guidance: Navigating the complex legal process after an accident or injury isn’t easy. It is often complicated by lawyers and insurance companies trying to limit the at-fault person or business’ financial responsibility for your injuries. While you focus on healing, grieving and recovering, your personal injury lawyer can deal with the person or business responsible for your pain and suffering and handle all matters related to the insurance company.

Florida Personal Injury Video FAQs

How long do I have to bring a lawsuit against those who are legally responsible for my personal injuries?

Every case is subject to a statute of limitations. In the work we do, personal injury cases, most of the statute of limitations are four years. Medical malpractice statutes of limitations are two years with an ability to expand the time. Products liability are four years with an ability to expand the time. When I say that, use that phrase I talk about, an ability to extend the time because you did not discover the injury or it took a while to develop. Two years and four years are the primary time periods, and we’d much rather see a case earlier than later and then have to deal with that problem.

How long will it take for my Florida personal injury case to get to trial?

There’s no definitive answer on how long it’ll take to resolve your case. At Freidin Brown, we work aggressively to advocate on your behalf to try to bring a resolution. Whether it’s a settlement, through a mediated settlement, or a trial, arbitration if necessary, as quickly as possible. But the reality is, that most litigated cases take a minimum of a year, and complex medical malpractice cases can take several years.

How much will it cost to hire an attorney for my Florida personal injury case?

At Freidin Brown, we charge our clients on a contingency basis, meaning we only get paid if we win for you. So if we don’t make any recovery for you, you don’t owe us a dime.

How quickly should I contact an attorney after I was injured by another person?

If you were injured by another person, you should contact an attorney right away. The sooner that they are able to come into the case and represent you, they’ll be helping you navigate the process and make life a lot easier for you, but also represent your interests all the way through.

What can I recover if I win my Florida personal injury case?

The damages that are recoverable in these cases, assuming there’s collectability, are for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of capacity to enjoy life, disability, disfigurement, for medical bills, for lost earnings, lost earning capacity, and any other incidental losses that you can prove are related to the injury.

What constitutes a personal injury case?

Personal injury cases when one wrongdoer injures another person, an innocent victim if you will, and that involves a gamut of things, including auto cases, premises liability, negligent security, medical malpractice. All sorts of things when someone injures someone, including intentional towards … or products liability cases where a product fails to be safe and damages someone. There’s just a wide range of types of personal injury cases.

What if a person dies before bringing a personal injury lawsuit?

That raises two scenarios. One is if the person dies as a result of the negligent act in question. Say for example medical malpractice and they die later on, it becomes a wrongful death case and it’s brought by the family through a personal representative. The second scenario is that person dies from a cause completely different than what was the initial injury and that becomes what’s called a survival action and again the personal representative of the state will bring it on behalf of the person who died and that money would go to their estate.

What is my personal injury case worth?

We get that question in all our cases. What is the case worth?

In the beginning, we don’t know what it’s worth, because we don’t know all the facts. But when we learn the facts, we’re looking for, how clear is the case against the other party? We’re looking at, how serious is the damage? We’re looking at how closely we can connect the damage to the wrongful act. In other words, if it’s tenuous or very clear. And then, finally, we’re looking for, how are we going to collect it?

It’s impossible to answer those questions early on until you have that information. In our firm, once we start collecting that information, we give the clients a very full and frank discussion of what we think the case is worth. But we rarely tell them what we think it’s worth in the very beginning because we don’t have enough information.

What kinds of fees are associated with personal injury lawsuits?

Our cases are all contingency fees, meaning we take a percentage of the recovery if and when we win, and we do not charge anything if there is no recovery.

Why is it important to hire a Board Certified trial lawyer?

The main reason is, if you’re going to litigate and you’re going to go to court, you want an attorney with you that has experience. And in order to be a Board Certified civil trial lawyer, one of the requirements is that you have a large number of civil jury trials before you can be admitted, and there is no substitution for experience when you’re in court.

Will I have to pay anything out-of-pocket in my Florida personal injury case?

No, you will no need to pay out-of-pocket for your Florida personal injury case with our firm, Freidin Brown. In fact, with your fees, you will only owe your costs if and when there is a recovery in your case. If there is no recovery in your case, our firm will pay your costs, and you will not owe anything.

Will I have to pay to speak with an attorney about my Florida personal injury case?

The answer to that question is no. You will not need to pay us to consult with us or speak about your case. We work on only a contingent fee basis, which means you pay us if, and only if, there is a recovery from your case. In other words, if we don’t recover for you, you don’t pay. So it doesn’t hurt to come speak with us.
