Serious injuries in Southern Florida and across the country are more common than many people realize. According to the CDC, 24.8 million Americans visit their doctors each year due to an injury and another 24.2 million. Unintentional injuries result in 224,935 deaths each year.

Many Americans live with a medical condition, whether it’s back aches, type 2 diabetes, migraines, or other conditions. If you’re injured in a workplace accident, traffic collision, other incident, your insurance may refuse to cover your injuries or may make a lowball offer.


According to Florida law, you may still have a claim if you’re injured and suffer an injury. For example, if you have osteoporosis and suffer a fracture in a slip and fall, you may still be eligible to file a claim against the property owner if they were negligent and their actions led to your injury. How much you may qualify for in such a case will depend on how much the injury worsened the existing medical condition.

A serious personal injury can impact your finances for years to come. In fact, unexpected medical emergencies are one of the leading causes of personal bankruptcy in this country. It’s no wonder.

Whether you’ve been injured in a sports injury, workplace accident, bicycle accident, or any other incident in Hollywood, Homestead, Miami, or anywhere in South Florida, one of the first things you will want to do is to start documenting your injuries and costs. This is because if there is a third party who may have been responsible for your injuries, you may have a claim under Florida law. You may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. Doing so can help you pay for the many costs you may be facing.


So how do you document? Start right away. If you can, take photos of the scene where the injury happened as soon as it happens. Even photos with your phone are fine. Take photos of the surrounding area, too. For example, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident or bicycle accident, take photos of the road conditions and any surrounding area.

Charlie is a very skilled attorney that advocates hard for his clients. But the best part is he is an all around great guy. He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
