Miami Personal Injury Lawyer

Representing Victims of Negligence and Wrongful Acts

Modern life comes with many inherent safety risks, whether it’s the cars we drive, the products we use, the businesses we visit, or the workspaces we inhabit. While not all accidents are preventable, some may be caused by negligence or careless and wrongful actions by a person or company. If you are injured as a result of someone’s negligence, you could be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.

At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, we have a proud history of representing those who have been injured or wronged – and securing substantial verdicts and settlements on their behalf. Founded in 1988, we have offices in Miami and Boca Raton and can take on personal injury cases anywhere in the nation.

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Whether you've been injured in a car crash or act of medical malpractice, you may be wondering if it's worth it to bring your case to a personal injury attorney near you. In fact, the insurance company may have already reached out to you and offered a settlement for your claim. Should you still contact an attorney about your case?

The short answer is yes! Having an attorney represent your case is beneficial in a number of ways:

  • An attorney can make sure your rights are represented at all times.
  • An attorney can negotiate with the insurance company to increase the amount of your settlement.
  • An attorney can use medical experts, investigators, and accident reconstructionists to prove negligence in your case.

Our Areas of Practice

With over $1 billion won on behalf of injury victims, our team has the combined resources and experience to help you with a wide variety of personal injury claims.

When Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?

Most personal injury claims are evaluated on the legal principle of “negligence,” which can vary depending on the type of case in question and your state. Because people have a legal “duty of care” towards each other in certain situations – such as driving on a public road or helping a patient identify serious symptoms – those who violate their “duty of care” can be held accountable in the civil justice system.

In order to have a personal injury claim, however, it isn’t enough to show that someone else was negligent. You must also show that you suffered “damages,” or losses to your person and property.

What Compensation Can I Get for My Injury?
Damages in a personal injury case can include compensation for things like:
  • Medical expenses (doctor’s visits, lab tests, surgeries, etc.)
  • Hospital stays
  • Long-term care and rehabilitative services
  • Physical and psychological therapy
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Wrongful death
  • Lost companionship
  • Physical and psychological pain and suffering

For more information about whether you have a personal injury case, we recommend that you speak with an attorney. Contact Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen at (866) 629-1061 to get started.

Personal Injury FAQs

  • Q:When should I see a doctor?

    A:If you've suffered an injury in any type of accident, it's important to see a doctor right away. Stress from the accident and adrenaline may prevent you from feeling the full effects of your injury, but a doctor can ensure you receive proper treatment and the correct documentation to send to your employer and the insurance company.

  • Q:Is there a time limit for my personal injury case?

    A:Like other states, Florida has a statute of limitations on the filing of personal injury lawsuits, which is four years from the date the injury occurred. In cases that involve medical malpractice or birth injury, for example, it is common for the injury to not be discovered for several months or even years. In these situations, the court often extends the statute of limitations, starting the clock from the date the injury was discovered instead.

  • Q:How much is my personal injury case worth?

    A:There is no easy answer to this question. The amount of money you can recover from a personal injury case depends on a number of different factors, such as insurance policy limits and the severity of the injury. At Grossman Roth, we always fight to recover the maximum amount of money possible in your unique situation and will endeavor to be as transparent as we can about the amount of compensation you can expect.

  • Q:Will I have to go to court?

    A:Most likely, no. The vast majority of personal injury cases in Florida, and in fact, the United States, are settled without going to trial. However, there are instances where an offered settlement isn't sufficient to fully compensate our clients for monetary and emotional damages and it becomes necessary to take the liable party to court. If that happens, you can be confident with Grossman Roth by your side. We call ourselves trial lawyers for a reason because we have built a legacy of success in courtrooms across the nation that is backed by over 100 years of combined experience.
