We Can Help Identify Liable Parties for Your Personal Injuries
Failing to take proper care may be classified as negligence. For example, drivers must pay attention to the road and operate their vehicle using due care. Likewise, medical professionals must follow a standard of care when providing medical services.
If the other party acted negligently by failing to use due care, then that party may be liable for your injuries.
Your personal injury lawyer in Miami Gardens can help you build a case that establishes liability. We may:
- Retrieve the police or accident report to prove how the accident happened.
- Contact eyewitnesses who can testify about how the accident occurred.
- Work with expert witnesses, such as medical experts or accident reconstruction experts.
- Retrieve medical documents, company records, or other documentation that helps establish negligence.
- Pursue other evidence that helps us prove negligence and liability.
In some cases, more than one party may be liable for your injuries. For example, if the party that caused your injuries was working at the time of the accident, that party’s employer may be vicariously liable for the employee’s actions.

What to Expect During Your Personal Injury Case
Your lawyer can provide more details about how your injury case may go. Here is a general overview of the personal injury process.
We may first file an insurance claim with the defendant’s insurer. This may include sending a demand letter to the insurance company to outline your case. The insurer may offer a settlement, and we may try to negotiate for fair settlement value. If we cannot reach a settlement, we may file a lawsuit.
A lawsuit starts with your Complaint and the defendant’s Answer. Both sides may participate in discovery, during which you may have to provide a deposition or answer interrogatories. We may still attempt to negotiate a settlement out of court, but if the defendant refuses to offer a fair settlement, we may take the case to trial.
