Miami Personal Injury Attorney Dedicated to Your Needs
If you’ve been hurt because of another’s negligence, you should be entitled under the law to recover compensation from the negligent party for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other applicable legal damages. Unfortunately, obtaining this much-needed compensation is not often easy, especially if you have not retained an attorney to help you. At Goldfarb Law, we understand the process needed to get the full amount of compensation available to you after a serious car or truck accident, slip and fall or other accident. Whether dealing with a negligent driver or a national trucking company, a local bar or a shopping mall, the corner store or a global manufacturer, attorney Michael Goldfarb has the skills, energy and dedication to go after the responsible party and hold them accountable for the harm they have caused. Contact Goldfarb Law after any Miami personal injury, including any of the following:
Car Accidents – Florida’s no-fault insurance law only allows civil lawsuits for full compensation in limited cases, with quick timelines that must be followed. We can help you determine whether your injuries meet the “serious injury” threshold for a claim under Florida law, and we’ll walk you through all the necessary steps to protect and pursue your claim. Our Miami car accident attorney handles all types of motor vehicle claims, including motorcycle crashes, truck accidents and accidents involving ridesharing companies such as Uber or Lyft.
Premises Liability – A slip and fall or trip and fall can cause painful and serious, debilitating injuries, but proving that a property owner knew or should have known of a dangerous condition yet failed to repair or warn of the hazard in a reasonable time can be complex and challenging. Our Miami premises liability lawyer handles accidents in restaurants, grocery stores, apartment complexes, shopping malls, hotels and resorts, including elevator and escalator accidents on these premises. We also help victims of robbery, assault or other injury that occurred in part due to a property owner’s negligent security.
Medical Malpractice – Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals owe a duty to practice with the skill and attention expected of other members of the medical community in similar circumstances. Doctors and hospitals can be held accountable for breaching this duty in a claim for medical mistakes, which has come to be known as the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Serious medical errors can include surgical mistakes, a missed or delayed diagnosis of cancer, administering the wrong prescription, mishandling an infant during delivery, and many other needless mistakes with regrettable and tragic consequences.
Products Liability – Product manufacturers can be held strictly liable for injuries caused by defective products they have released onto the market. Strict liability means you don’t have to prove the product maker was negligent, but only that the product was defective when it left their control. We’ll hold drug makers, auto makers and consumer product manufacturers liable for their design defects or manufacturing defects which left a product dangerously unsafe. Another way products can be considered defective is when they lack appropriate instructions or warnings so they can be used safely.
Construction Accidents – Construction is a vital and important industry; it is also one of the most dangerous jobs out there. Construction work can be performed safely, but only when workers are properly trained and given the appropriate equipment and gear to perform their work safely. Goldfarb Law holds contractors liable for scaffold collapses, ladder falls, forklift and crane accidents, trenching and excavation accidents, electrocution and burn injuries, and other accidents and injuries caused by negligent or unsafe practices on a worksite.
Boating Accidents – The waters off the shores of Miami are a fun and exciting place to enjoy waterskiing, jet skiing and innumerable other recreational boating activities. Motorboats are powerful vehicles, and operators need to use appropriate skill and attention to drive carefully with due regard for the safety of people on their boat and others on the water. Speeding and drunk driving are just as dangerous on the water as on the road, yet there is often less stigma attached to reckless boating behavior, which can end in tragedy. To make matters worse, Florida law requires very little regarding the age or skill level of a boat operator. At Goldfarb Law, we understand the nature of boating and legal responsibility surrounding boat operators and rental companies; we hold negligent actors fully accountable for injuries caused by their lack of care.
Cruise Ships – The vacation of a lifetime for many, cruises are extravagant (and costly) excursions where staff make you feel like your every need and desire are being carefully considered. The unfortunate truth is that cruise ships harbor many dangers to guests, including the risk of a slip and fall on a slippery deck, a trip and fall from unsecured equipment, or even food poisoning and other illnesses from improperly maintained kitchens, cabins and common areas. Most guests are not accustomed to the low clearances and high thresholds pervasive on cruise ships; cruise ship operators are obliged to provide adequate notice and warnings to their guests for their safety, and they can and should be held accountable when they don’t.
Catastrophic Injuries – Some injuries take a long time to heal, and some never completely go away. Goldfarb Law represents individuals with the most serious injuries, helping them get the compensation they need to deal with a lifetime of medical care, specialized equipment, and meeting the challenges of daily living with a traumatic brain injury, spinal injury, burn injury or other serious injury.
Wrongful Death – Of course no amount of money can adequately compensate for the loss of a beloved family member, but the fact is that the sudden loss of a loved one causes very real, immediate and lasting consequences in terms of financial expenses, disruption to the family life, and the loss of companionship, guidance and support that cannot be replaced. We address the need to recognize these important factors and obtain justice through Miami wrongful death claims to hold negligent actors accountable and help bring closure to an extremely difficult period in a family’s life.
