Miami Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Types of Miami Vehicle Accidents We Handle

South Florida is an international hub, visited annually by millions of tourists, and home to some of the greatest golf and boating destinations in the world. It has numerous regional and domestic airports, marinas, railroad yards, trucking terminals, and hundreds of miles of sprawling highways, railroad track, coastline, and roadways. While this may explain South Florida’s popularity, it may also explain why vehicle and transportation accidents continue to represent an ongoing threat to Floridians. Vehicle accidents in Miami, Broward, Palm Beach, and throughout Florida claim thousands of lives each year. There were over 400,000 vehicle accidents on Florida’s highways and roads during 2019 alone, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Over 3,000 of those Florida vehicle accidents resulted in fatalities. These Florida accident statistics do not account for the many boating accidents, aviation crashes, and recreational vehicle accidents which also occur annually.

At Viñas & DeLuca, we handle a variety of vehicle and transportation-related accidents in Miami, Broward, Palm Beach, and throughout Florida. Among the many vehicle accident cases we have litigated over the years, lawyers at Viñas & DeLuca have gone to trial in cases related to ATV accidents, train accidents, commercial vehicle collisions, scooter accidents, and more. We know what it takes to win in the courtroom and secure full and fair compensation for our clients. All Florida vehicle accident cases are not the same. The law governing various types of vehicle accident cases in Florida may depend on the type of vehicle involved, the location of the accident, and many other factors. For example, Florida’s personal injury cases stemming from vehicle accidents involving trains, boats, commercial vehicles, and passenger cars are each governed by vastly different state and federal laws. Knowing the legal nuisances affecting these claims is critical to winning.

Here are examples of Florida vehicle accident cases we accept:

Car Accidents
Truck Accidents
Tractor Trailer & Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Motorcycle Accidents
Bicycle Accidents
Boating & Jetski Accidents
Uber/Lyft (Ridesharing) Accidents
Train Accidents
Aviation & Aircraft Crashes
Bus Accidents
Scooter & Moped Accidents
Pedestrian Injuries
All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Accidents

Common Miami Vehicle Accident Injuries

Attorneys at Viñas & DeLuca have over 35 years of combined legal experience handling Florida vehicle accident cases in Miami, Broward, Boca Raton/Palm Beach and through Florida. Over that time, we have seen a spectrum of injuries caused by these accidents, including:

Traumatic Brain Injuries
⦁ Concussions
⦁ Facial Fractures
⦁ Spinal Cord Injuries
⦁ Disc Injuries
⦁ Compression and Other Vertebral Fractures
⦁ Rotator Cuff Tears
⦁ Ligament and Tendon Injuries
⦁ Chest, Sternum, and Rib Fractures

In addition to the physical injuries listed above, vehicle accidents can result in long-term emotional harm, pain, suffering, and other damages. The extent of these damages under Florida law depends on the severity of the accident and resulting injuries.

Damages Available in a Florida Vehicle Accident Case

Florida’s civil jury instructions, available online at the Florida Supreme Court website, contain a list of damages typically (but not always) available to claimants making personal injury claims in Florida vehicle accident cases. While the available damages in Florida vehicle accident cases can be similar, what you may recover in any particular case will depend on the legal theory of the case, the type of vehicle involved, and the state or federal law governing your claim. Generally speaking, however, damages for personal injury may be recovered in Florida vehicle accident cases for the following:

⦁ Pain and Suffering
⦁ Disability
⦁ Disfigurement
⦁ Mental Anguish
⦁ Loss of Capacity for the Enjoyment of Life
⦁ Medical Bills
⦁ Loss of Earnings
⦁ Loss of the Ability to Earn Money
⦁ Aggravation of a Preexisting Condition

The available damages in a Florida wrongful death case are much different. They are strictly governed by Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, which can be found in Florida Statutes §768.16-768.26.

Common Legal Issues in Florida Vehicle Accident Cases

A person claiming personal injury resulting from a vehicle accident in Florida must typically prove both that another individual failed to use reasonable care while operating a vehicle and that the failure to use reasonable care (i.e. negligence) was a legal cause of harm, injury, or loss. Again, the elements of any claim will depend on multiple factors. If you are injured on the job, for example, what must be proven and the damages recoverable may differ greatly. If you are considering making a claim for personal injury or wrongful death related to a Florida vehicle accident, then you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Attorneys at Viñas & DeLuca are here to help, 24/7/365, with multiple offices available for consultation throughout Florida.
