FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In Florida, personal injury cases are governed by Statutes Title XLV that define negligence, duties of care, statutes of limitations, liability, damages, and recovering compensation. These laws allow the victim to recover compensation for certain damages when they are injured due to negligence of another individual or business through a personal injury claim.

Accidents happen. But when they are the result of someone’s recklessness or negligence, the at-fault party can and should be held liable for the victim’s damages. That is where the skilled injury attorneys at Charlip Law Group come in. 

Recovery of damages does not always result in a court case. In most cases, personal injury claims are settled outside of court when the insurance company, the victim (plaintiff), and the at-fault party (defendant) can come to a fair settlement. But if an adequate settlement cannot be negotiated, having a skilled legal professional on your side ensures that you can pursue your rights in a court of law. 

At Charlip Law Group, LC, our skilled personal injury lawyers are experienced in dealing with accident cases in different industries. If negligence was a factor in your injuries, call us today to discuss your personal injury claim.

Personal injury attorney David H. Charlip and our team of Miami accident lawyers are here to help. Free consultation: (305) 354-9313.

Personal injury law encompasses many different types of accidents and claims. The most common accidents that fall under personal injury law include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Wrongful death

While many personal injury accidents are covered under insurance, victims cannot trust that the insurance settlement they are offered after an accident is the maximum one they are legally entitled to. Large insurance companies, as very profitable companies, are notorious for shortchanging accident victims with reduced payouts in order to maintain their profitability. 

This leaves the victim fighting to get a fair settlement or paying for their own expenses out of pocket. Without the assistance of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer willing to fight the insurance company, victims often walk away with far less compensation than they would have had with representation. If you have been injured in an accident, don’t leave your financial recovery up to the insurance company. Let the experienced Miami personal injury lawyers at Charlip Law Group hold the insurance company and the at-fault party accountable.

While every accident is different, if you have been injured in a personal injury accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

In the state of Florida, these damages will fall into three categories: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.

  • Economic damages are the direct, quantifiable expenses that you have incurred as a result of the accident.
  • Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, are those that don’t have a direct, quantifiable cost associated with them.
  • Punitive damages can be ordered by the court in some cases when the defendant’s behavior has been especially egregious. It is not associated with a cost but is designed to punish the at-fault party.

The amount of your recovery and the type of damages you will be able to recover will depend on the type of accident, the seriousness of your injuries, and the specific circumstances surrounding the incident.

Common damages available in a personal injury case include:

  • Your medical expenses, including any emergency transportation and treatment, surgery, hospitalization, doctor visits, prescription medications, physical and occupational therapies, required medical equipment, in-home care, or other costs as they apply to required care for your recovery.
  • Lost wages if you cannot work while you are healing
  • Personal property damage such as damage to your car
  • Future potential medical care as it may be required to treat your injuries
  • Loss of earning capacity and disability benefits if you cannot return to your job or career
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death

At Charlip Law Group, our personal injury lawyers understand the incredible challenges that accident victims face. Our team of injury lawyers is here to give skilled legal advice and diligently fight for our clients so they can get the compensation for their injuries that they deserve. When you have been injured due to another’s negligence, you need an experienced personal injury professional in your corner. That is where we can help.

Call us today at (305) 354-9313 to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney and discuss your case.

After an injury, you may be relying on insurance to help cover the costs of your expenses. But a word of warning about insurance: these companies are large for-profit corporations that maintain profitability by watching their expenses. That includes what they pay out in the way of accident settlements. 

Insurance companies are notorious for downplaying injuries and offering less than a victim is entitled to for their injuries. Unfortunately, accident victims often don’t know what their claim is worth or what benefits they are entitled to. In many cases, a victim is so happy to get any settlement that it is only when the funds run out and they realize that they still have bills to pay that they realize that the settlement they accepted was not nearly what they needed – or were legally entitled to.

When you have been injured in an accident that was caused by another party, before you accept any insurance settlement, it’s essential to understand what you are legally entitled to so you can understand if the settlement you are offered is a fair and adequate one.  

Without legal assistance, you are relying on the insurance company to fairly and adequately compensate you. Unfortunately, this rarely happens. The Insurance Research Council itself published a study that showed that injured parties got 3.5 percent more in settlements if an attorney represented them. 

Contact our experienced personal injury attorneys at the Charlip Law Group, and we would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your options in your case and what you are legally entitled to for your damages. Free consultation: (305) 354-9313.

Not everyone who has been injured in an accident has a personal injury case. Weighing whether you have a claim will depend on a couple of things:

  • First, did someone else’s negligent behavior or actions cause an accident that resulted in harm to you?
  • Next, have you suffered serious financial losses because of that accident?

If you have been involved in an accident that was partially or completely due to someone else’s negligence and you have been left with medical bills, property damage, lost wages, or other damages, you may be entitled to compensation in a personal injury claim. 

Proving negligence can be complex, with specific elements that must be proven for an accident victim to be entitled to compensation. Without adequate investigation and evidence, an accident victim can be left with no compensation or far less than they truly deserve. At the Charlip Law Group, our team of personal injury lawyers will advise you if you have a valid personal injury claim so you can hold the at-fault party accountable in your case.

Facing an injury claim can be daunting for anyone with no experience with the process. Having an experienced legal professional in your corner ensures that you have someone who understands the process, the law, and the potential pitfalls of your case. A Miami personal injury lawyer will ensure that your legal rights are being represented and that you get fairly compensated for your damages.

At the Charlip Law Group, we are your staunch legal representatives from the moment you hire us. We

  • Thoroughly investigate your accident

Not all accidents will need the help of an attorney. But if you have sustained serious injuries or you have lost a loved one in an accident, getting legal assistance is critical to ensuring that you get compensated fairly for everything you are entitled to. 

Having the assistance of a Miami personal injury lawyer allows you to:

  • Focus on getting better – Instead of working about mounting expenses and fighting with insurance companies, your attorney will do everything necessary to ensure that you can rest and recover. From referring you to the best possible medical professionals to handling all insurance paperwork and negotiations, your lawyer will be in your corner advocating for your best possible outcome. 
  • Level the playing field – Most individuals have little experience going up against large insurance companies and their adjusters and lawyers. Insurance companies will work to minimize their own financial exposure, not to ensure that you are getting fairly compensated. That is our job. They have a team of legal professionals on their side. So should you.
  • Benefit from professional medical and legal resources and accident experts – To support your claim, you may need the assistance of skilled professional medical witnesses, accident recreation engineers, or highly skilled specialists specific to your injuries. We work with a network of experts and consultants who can help support your accident claim enabling you to get the maximum compensation possible.
  • Support your stance if there is a comparative fault involved – In Florida, we have comparative fault laws. If you are partially at fault for the accident, insurance may want to blame you for a higher percentage of fault to mitigate their own financial exposure. With our Miami personal injury lawyers on your side, we will hold the insurance company accountable for a fair settlement and not allow them to deflect blame on you. 

You should never face a serious personal injury on your own. Accidents are already overwhelming on their own. It can be more overwhelming when you have to deal with insurance while trying to heal. At Charlip Law Group, our skilled Miami personal injury team can help you get the compensation you deserve so you can heal and move on with your life.

Insurance companies, their adjusters and their attorneys all have an interest that is diametrically opposed to yours. All of these people or entities are seeking to pay out as little as possible in the way of compensation.
