Serious Injuries

Serious Injuries

Loss of limb, head trauma, disfigurement, severe neck and back injuries and broken bones can have a devastating effect and drastically change your life and the lives of those close to you. When these traumatic events are caused by accidents at work or by someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for a personal injury claim which would entitle you to be compensated for your injuries and loss of work.

Serious injuries can leave you feeling helpless and alone. But the truth of the matter is that you have rights. You have the law on your side to help pay damages you for your losses. But you have to take the first step and contact legal representation. The Miami serious injury lawyers at Friedman, Rodman & Frank, understand all the intricacies of personal injury law. We’re on your side and we will listen to you, the client, and do whatever it takes to ensure justice prevails. We understand the human side of the law. We know that serious injuries are not only traumatic physically, but they are traumatic mentally as well. Serious injuries usually result in the loss of wages, medical expenses, physical therapy, exorbitant expenses and major changes in lifestyle.

If you are seriously injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act, personally injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you. In a successful action, the person who suffers the losses is compensated by the one who caused the injury.

Workplace injuries are all too common. Some jobs tend to have a higher injury risk factor such as:

  • Health care and social assistance – back injuries are common from physically handling or lifting patients and from slips, trips and falls. Also, workers in this industry are exposed to viruses which can lead to serious illnesses.
  • Transportation and warehouse – hazardous working conditions persist in this industry.
  • Arts, entertainment and recreation (specifically sports and performing arts) – because of the physical nature, workers are often more likely to be injured.
  • Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting – specifically animal production workers are at high risk because of the use of dangerous equipment.
  • Manufacturing – again, high injury risk due to the use of dangerous equipment.

When working in high-risk jobs, safety precautions must be strictly adhered to and care must be taken when handling dangerous equipment. It is the responsibility of management to provide a safe working environment for all employees.

Serious injuries due to someone else’s negligence don’t always occur in the workplace. Businesses, public areas and private homes are also prone to accidents. And it is up to the injured individual to hold liable the responsible parties.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
