It’s hard to put a price tag on a serious injury. A catastrophic injury, such as brain trauma, spinal cord injury, an amputation, or any serious injury may cause severe trauma as well as physical pain and suffering. It’s hard to put monetary amount on that.


However, whether you file a legal claim or seek compensation through an insurer, determining the correct cost of your injuries is important. Knowing how much your claim is worth allows you to pursue fair compensation, so more of your injury is covered. This is important to help avoid high medical bills you can’t pay, lost income that leaves you unable to pay your living costs, and other financial disasters that unfortunately can happen to Florida plaintiffs.

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.


Flaxman Law Group has represented many people in personal injury claims in Southern Florida through our offices in Miami, Homestead, and Hollywood, and we’ve seen many types of injuries, from amputations to hip fractures to life-changing head injuries and other types of harm. In all cases, we advise people who have been injured to do the following to protect themselves and their finances.

Stay Calm

While the situation may be frightening, whether you’ve been in a boating accident or have suffered a workplace injury, try to stay calm so you can get the help you need. Evaluate the situation if you can so you can determine how seriously you’re injured and what your next steps should be.

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.

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
