Accomplished Personal Injury Law Firm Assists Miami Accident Victims
Trusted counsel for clients injured in motor vehicle, truck, and construction accidents
When a car, truck, or construction accident injures you or someone you love, you are likely to face mounting medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, someone else may be at fault and you may be entitled to receive compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
At The Martinez Law Offices in Coral Gables, we provide experienced, results-driven representation to injury victims throughout the greater Miami area. Established in 1987, our law firm works hard to ensure negligent parties are held accountable. Our legal team is prepared to do whatever it takes to help you obtain the damages you deserve, whether we achieve those through a settlement or at trial.
Receiving compensation after a motor vehicle accident
If you are seriously injured in a car or motorcycle accident, it’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The amount of compensation you receive is largely dependent on the extent of your injuries. In Florida, there are two ways to obtain compensation for a motor vehicle injury:
- Through your own insurance — Florida is a no-fault insurance state. This means that in the event of an accident or injury, you must turn first to your own car insurance coverage to get compensation for injuries and lost income. Florida drivers are required to carry $10,000 in personal injury protection insurance.
- From the other driver — You may file a claim directly against another driver if your injuries are considered permanent, if you suffer permanent scarring or disfigurement, or if you suffer a permanent loss of bodily function.
Our dedicated legal team can help you obtain compensation from your own insurance company or from any other party at fault for causing you harm. Through diligence and careful investigating, our lawyers will work doggedly to determine who is responsible for your injuries and seek compensation that is full and fair.
Identifying the party at fault in a Miami truck accident
Given their size and weight, trucks are the deadliest vehicles on the road. When a truck collides with another vehicle, injuries are often catastrophic if not fatal.
At The Martinez Law Offices, we have extensive experience helping families process the aftermath of a trucking accident. Whether you have suffered a debilitating injury or lost a loved one, we want to help you receive just compensation. Large commercial vehicles are governed by federal regulations, and we have both the skill and tenacity to determine whether rules on weight, driver rest, and truck maintenance were violated. Our legal team investigates your case right away to determine which party is to blame:
- Truck driver
- Truck owner
- Trucking company
- Truck manufacturer
Since trucking accident injuries are generally serious, settlements are often large and hard fought. Drawing on three decades of experience, our personal injury attorneys are not intimidated by the powerful resources of big insurance companies. We use every resource at our disposal to help accident victims find justice.
Seeking legal help for construction site injuries
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places. However, that doesn’t mean that workers have no recourse when they are injured. When a Miami-area construction worker seeks our help after suffering a construction site injury due to safety violations or poor working conditions, we rally to support him. Our lawyers are advocates of justice who believe that negligent parties should be held responsible when lives are injured or lost. We routinely hold the following parties responsible for construction accidents:
- Site owners
- Equipment manufacturers
A defective tool, malfunctioning safety harness, or dangerous work environment is no excuse for a construction site injury. If you or a loved one is harmed on a construction site, let our dedicated team of injury lawyers help you obtain compensation. Our attorneys assist Miami workers with a variety of construction accident injuries including burns, broken bones, lacerations, amputations, PTSD, and TBIs.
