Miami Personal Injury Lawyers Protecting Accident Victims

An accident or injury can happen to anyone at any time. Quite often these unfortunate events are caused by the negligence of someone else. If you or someone you care about has suffered harm that could have been prevented, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim.

In Florida, individuals who have suffered personal injuries as a result of another person’s negligence can recover financial compensation to cover their lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, property damages and other losses.

While no amount of money can ever undo what has happened, a fair financial award or settlement can help a victim begin the process of rebuilding his or her life after an accident or injury.

WE FOUGHT ON THEIR BEHALF, HEAR WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY:

Cruise Ship Crew Member Injury

I was in pain for a good 6 months, it was just a nightmare…It wasn’t until I got Mr. Brais that I really started getting the help I needed from the doctors. You need somebody you can trust, somebody to give you some guidance. They stuck in there with me the whole way.

Client

Tug & Barge Crew Member Death

I just thought he [Mr. Brais] was the man to do it. I felt comfortable with him being by my side. The pain my family has suffered has been immeasurable, but he was there with me. It’s not just him, it’s his team also. Keith really stood up for my son. I know I made the best choice.

Client

Resort Guest Injury

As we worked with Keith, I realized what would have happened had we just selected an attorney in town…I realized that the outcome would have been probably entirely different, and not as successful as it was. I felt very comfortable going through with the whole process. I would say Keith is a superhero.
