Miami Injury & Accident Lawyer

Miami Auto Accident Attorney

Every year, there are thousands of car accidents on Florida streets and highways, and a high percentage of those auto accidents result in personal injuries.  The impact an auto accident injury can have on someone can be tremendous and costly.   If you’ve been injured in an automobile collision, you need an experienced Miami Auto Accident Attorney on your side.

There is no such thing as a “simple auto accident.”  You may have medical bills, lost wages, car repairs, and other expenses. You need help fast. The last thing you need is insurance company runaround. Our Miami car accident injury law firm has over thirty years of experience in automobile cases involving car accidents, motorcycle crashes, and trucking accidents.

Many factors can result in a traffic accident, and sometimes multiple causes contribute to a single accident. Traffic accident factors might include the following:

  • Driver distraction, including talking on a cell phone, fiddling with technical devices, talking with passengers, eating or grooming in the car, dealing with children or pets in the back seat, or attempting to retrieve dropped items;
  • Driver impairment by tiredness, illness, alcohol or other drugs, both legal and illegal;
  • Mechanical failure, including flat tires or tires blowing out, brake failure, axle failure, steering mechanism failure;
  • Road conditions, including foreign obstacles or substances on the road surface, rain, ice, or snow making the roads slick, road damage including pot holes;
  • Speed exceeding safe conditions, such as the speed for which the road was designed, the road condition, the weather, the speed of surrounding motorists, and so on; and
  • Road design and layout. Some roads are notorious for being accident “black spots” for a variety of reasons, including alignment, visibility, surface conditions, road markings, etc.

Whatever the reason for the accident, determining fault in an automobile accident is not always easy, particularly if there are no independent witnesses.  Our Miami Car Accident Injury Lawyers thoroughly investigate these types of cases, and utilize the services of accident investigators and computer technology to reconstruct the accident and better strengthen a victim’s case when necessary.

As an injured driver, passenger, or pedestrian, you’ve suffered enough. You don’t need the burden of fighting with insurance adjustors on your own in attempts to get compensation for your suffering. Insurance companies’ obligations are to their stockholders and policyholders, not to people injured in car accidents. Insurance companies have enormous advantages: vast wealth, armies of experienced adjusters and attorneys, and dozens of legal reasons to reduce or deny compensation. At Jugo & Murphy, our obligation is to you.

Some of the successful cases our Miami Auto Accident Attorneys have handled include:

  • The retrieval and downloading of black box data from a defendant’s vehicle, which proved excessive speed and failure to respond to stopped vehicle ahead. As a result of the car accident, a 9 year old sustained bilateral leg fractures, and her twin sister suffered a knee injury. The case settled at the policy limit of $1 million;
  • An uninsured motorist suit for a 35-year-old father of six who was killed when struck by a drunk driver while unloading his work van.  The case settled for $1 million, the policy limit;
  • A truck struck and killed a 52-year-old pedestrian with one adult surviving son. The case resulted in a $1 million verdict;
  • The wrongful death of a 75 year old and a 45 year old when a car crossed over the center line, causing the clients’ vehicle to lose control and hit an oncoming truck. A settlement and verdict resulted in an $825,000 award;
  • A 31 year old under the influence of cocaine, who was hitchhiking on an expressway, was struck by a car swerving around a truck that stopped to pick up a client. The claim was brought against the truck driver for blocking a through lane. Our client sustained a below-the-knee amputation. The case settled for $750,000; and
  • A 52 year old suffered a herniated cervical disk and mild traumatic brain injury as a result of a rear-end crash. The case settled for $475,000.
