What is a Personal Injury Claim?
Generally speaking, a personal injury claim relates to a claim or lawsuit filed on behalf of an individual who has been physically or emotionally hurt due to the negligent conduct of others. This includes claims related to wrongful death, medical malpractice, slip, trip, and fall injuries, premises liability, negligent security, car accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, plane crashes, boating accidents, and more.

What You Need in Order to Win a Personal Injury Claim
Personal injury claims typically require 3 things: a negligent act, an injury, and a defendant who can fairly compensate the injured party. Your attorney will also have to prove that the negligent act caused the injury which is the subject of the claim. Surprisingly, the issue of causation is regularly and hotly contested. Defense lawyers frequently argue that an injury is not related to an accident. Instead, they will argue a claimant’s pain, ligament or tendon tear, disc herniation, cognitive dysfunction, or other condition is simply the result of longstanding disease, degenerative conditions, arthritis, or a prior accident – even where the claimant never before sought medical care for the injury now complained of. Or, defense lawyers may simply argue that the claimant is exaggerating. These predictable defenses can all be countered by a strong advocate dedicated to representing your interest and pursuing justice for your injuries.
Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
Insurance companies are experts at selling policies and collecting premiums. But when it comes time to pay legitimate claims, insurance companies hire “adjusters and investigators” to limit their financial exposure. This is true for nearly every kind of personal injury case. Adjusters can inundate claimants with paperwork, forms, document requests, and endless questions. They are hired and paid by insurance companies to do one thing: reduce insurance payouts. Investigators can contact witnesses, coach their statements, and sift through evidence keeping only that which favors the insurer and allowing the rest to be destroyed. You too should have a strong advocate on your side, representing your interest throughout the entire process.
Our Miami personal injury lawyers will work aggressively to present your personal injury claim and obtain a fair and full settlement for you. We can present your claim without formal litigation or take your case to trial. Our lawyers have secured millions and millions of dollars for our clients in and out of the courtroom.

Do I Need a Trial Attorney?
Insurance companies keep track of which lawyers will aggressively represent their clients and take cases to trial, and those that simply try to settle. Hiring an effective and experienced Miami trial attorney provides claimants with much-needed leverage in an already unfair process. With a seasoned trial attorney by your side, insurance companies know they will face a jury trial if they do not extend a fair settlement offer. At Viñas & DeLuca, our Miami personal injury attorneys have an impressive track record of winning at trial. We have gone to trial in many complex personal injury matters, including cases related to automobile defects, railroad accidents, product liability, trucking accidents, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. Hiring a Miami personal attorney with a reputation for winning in the courtroom will best position you to obtain a fair and full recovery.
There are many personal injury lawyers in Miami and throughout Florida. Very few can fairly call themselves trial attorneys. Choosing the right Miami personal injury attorney can make the difference between obtaining a fair settlement and just settling.
Very few cases ever go to trial. About 99% are settled in Florida. Our Miami personal injury attorneys always strive to secure fair settlements for our clients without prolonged litigation and trial. However, if your lawsuit is not settled out of court, you can be confident that the lawyers at Viñas & DeLuca will have devoted the necessary time, attention, and resources to carefully prepare your case for trial.
What Damages are Recoverable in a Miami Personal Injury Claim?
The damages available in any personal injury case will depend on the type of personal injury lawsuit filed, the facts of the case, and the nature of losses suffered by the plaintiff. Below are some damages which may be recoverable:
Disability & Disfigurement
Loss of the Capacity for the Enjoyment of Life
Loss of the Ability to Earn Money
Spouse’s Loss of Consortium, Support, & Services
Parental Damages for Care and Treatment of Minor Children
Parental Loss of a Child’s Services, Earnings & Earning Capacity
Parental Loss of Filial Consortium for Injury to a Child
Which elements of damages are available in any Florida personal injury case will differ depending on the type of lawsuit that is filed. Cases arising from wrongful death, medical malpractice, workplace injuries, and car accidents, for example, are all governed by separate laws which can greatly affect which damages can be recovered. If you are considering making a personal injury claim, it is best to speak with an experienced Miami personal injury lawyer to discuss what damages may be available in your particular case.
