Personal Injury

When you have been involved in an accident, the most important question to ask is, “Who is at fault?” If another person, business, or company has caused you to suffer injuries, you have a right to demand compensation. A Miami personal injury lawyer from Klemick and Gampel, P.A. can meet with you for a free consultation to determine whether you have grounds for a claim to inform you of your legal rights, and to help you understand the true value of your injury claim. We have significant experience and we always provide our clients with caring, personable service. It is important that you not talk to any insurance company before talking to us and having us review your potential claim with you. You may be entitled to far more compensation than you would have been offered by an insurance company for the person that caused your injuries and damages. We provide superior legal services for any of the following kinds of incidents, among others.

Areas of Practice Car Accidents

Car accidents are among the leading causes of injury and death in Florida, and many of them are avoidable. There are countless causes of car accidents, ranging from distracted drivers to inadequate road design. If you have suffered car accident injuries as a result of another driver’s negligence, you are entitled to recover full compensation.

Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are capable of causing enormous damage in accidents ranging from jackknifes and rollovers to head-on and rear-end collisions. Common causes of truck accidents include lack of proper equipment maintenance, tired driver, and recklessness. The driver who caused the accident can and should be held accountable to the victims.

Slip and Fall, or Trip and Fall

When you have been injured in a fall, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the owner of the property where your accident occurred, or against the person who controlled and was supposed to safely maintain it. If a slippery floor, un-cleared debris or clutter, poor lighting or other conditions caused you to slip or trip, the owner (or person in control) may be held liable for your injuries.

Wrongful Death

The surviving family members of the victim of a fatal injury, which is due to the negligence of another, have a right to sue the party who is responsible for the death. You are entitled to seek compensation for your mental pain and suffering, as well as the financial losses your family has experienced as a result of being deprived of your loved one’s contributions to the family.

Premises Liability

Property owners (and those responsible to maintain the property) often incur liability for injuries suffered by their guests or customers in avoidable accidents. If the property owner knew, or should have known, about hazardous conditions on the premises and failed to take action to remove the danger or to safeguard against accidents, you can file a claim to recover money for your damages.

Construction Site Accidents

Injured construction workers find themselves in a difficult position with the costs of medical bills at a time when they may be forced out of work, either temporarily or permanently. Construction sites are inherently dangerous, and you have a right to expect that your coworkers and your employer will take every precaution to prevent injuries. Injured construction workers, and those on construction sites, can recover money damages for their injuriesi f caused by the negligence of others.

Medical Malpractice

All medical professionals have a duty and responsibility to provide proper care and treatmentfor their patients. When a doctor, surgeon, dentist or other medical professional is negligent and falls below the applicable standard of care, and their patient suffers injuries and damages, it is considered malpractice.

Dangerous Drugs

The pharmaceutical industry has seen explosive growth in recent years, as increasing numbers of adults and children are prescribed drugs to treat a wide variety of physical and mental disorders. Many of these drugs have side effects which are worse than the conditions they are advertised as treating. You should not let a drug company profit from your suffering.

Product Liability

Manufacturers have a duty to safeguard the public against the possibility of illness or injury caused by using their products. If you or a loved one has been hurt as a result of design flaws, defects, improper labeling or undisclosed hazards in a product, we can help you recover damages for your injuries and losses.

Dog Bites

While dogs are commonly known as Man’s Best Friend, sometimes they can suddenly turn vicious and violent without provocation. Certain breeds, such as pit bulls and Rottweilers, are more prone to attacks, but any dog is capable of causing severe injuries. Children are the victims of a large percentage of dog bites, and the effects of the attack, both in disfigurement and emotional scarring, can last a lifetime.

Brain Injuries

The brain is highly susceptible to injury, and many types of damage are permanent and irreversible. Whether you suffered a concussion, or a traumatic brain injury, you may experience symptoms such as dizziness, fatigue, memory loss and headaches, as well as a reduction in cognitive ability, personality changes and other conditions which can result in disability.

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are among the most physically painful types of injuries, as well as causing severe emotional trauma. Depending on the severity of the burns, the victim may require extended hospitalization, skin grafts or even amputation, and the wounds may never fully heal, leaving permanent disfigurement. If you have suffered burns as a result of someone’s negligence, we will fight to help you recover the full compensation you deserve.
