We Handle a Wide Variety of Personal Injury Cases

We are a full-service personal injury law firm, equipped with the skills, knowledge, and resources to handle the most challenging personal injury cases in Miami. It would be impossible for us to list every scenario that could bring an injured client to us, but many of the cases we handle fall into one of the following categories:

Car Accidents

Tens of thousands of car accidents happen on the streets and highways of Miami every year. According to Florida Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), many of them result in injuries or fatalities to drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and others. At Eltringham Law Group, we represent those who suffered serious injuries in Miami car accidents and who have the right to claim financial compensation beyond their own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage. 

Catastrophic Injuries

Any preventable injury can cause major disruption in a person’s life. Some trauma, what personal injury lawyers in Miami refer to as catastrophic injuries, hold the potential to alter a victim’s life by causing permanent disabilities, chronic pain, lasting health complications, and crushing expenses. Eltringham Law Group works closely with our clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries, and often their loved ones as well, to understand the full impact of their trauma and to develop a legal strategy aimed at securing financial support to meet their current and future needs. 

Defective Products

The manufacturers of the products we use every day such as medicines, toys, household cleaners, vehicles, and so on owe us a duty not to sell goods containing dangerous defects. Florida law holds manufacturers strictly liable (meaning, without regard to fault) for any injuries that result from their failure to fulfill that duty. Eltringham Law Group has the resources and know-how to stand up to even the largest and most powerful manufacturers to hold them accountable when their dangerous, defective products harm an innocent Miami-area consumer. 

Dog Bites

In the blink of an eye, a seemingly friendly interaction with a dog can turn dangerous or even deadly. Young children are particularly vulnerable to  Miami dog bites, but anyone can suffer a dangerous bite that causes infection, uncontrolled bleeding, and disfiguring scars. At Eltringham Law Group, we help dog bite victims enforce their right under Florida law to seek financial compensation from strictly liable dog owners and anyone else whose negligent actions led to a harmful dog attack in Miami. 

Intentional Torts

An intentional tort is a knowingly wrongful action that causes physical, emotional, and/or financial damages to an innocent victim. Although intentional torts are also often crimes (for example, assault), victims of intentional torts can frequently seek financial compensation from the perpetrator as well as from others whose negligent conduct enabled or facilitated the perpetrator’s misconduct. In the aftermath of an intentional tort, Eltringham Law Group can investigate and identify all parties who should face liability for the damages you suffered, and then pursue those parties for full compensation. 

Medical Malpractice

Miami-region medical providers have an obligation to provide their patients with a minimum standard of medical care. An error or mistake by a healthcare professional may violate that duty, leaving the patient struggling with injuries, health complications, and unexpected expenses. The Eltringham Law Group team has the experience and know-how to navigate Florida’s medical malpractice laws to build strong cases against negligent medical providers. 

Slip & Fall Accidents

Falls represent a constant danger for Miami-area residents, workers, and visitors, especially (but by no means exclusively) older adults, young children, and construction workers. If you fell and got hurt because of a hazard on someone else’s property in Miami, you may have a case to make against the property owner or occupant for having failed to keep you safe. The Eltringham Law Group has years of experience helping fall victims obtain full compensation for their injuries and losses. 

Your Potential Personal Injury Compensation

Every personal injury case we handle at Eltringham Law Group gets personalized attention from our staff of Miami personal injury attorneys and legal professionals. We usher you through every step of the process of securing financial compensation. We cannot guarantee results, but in many cases our efforts on your behalf can achieve payment for:

  • Your medical expenses in treating an injury and addressing any future health complications; 
  • The current and future out-of-pocket costs your injury forces you to incur; 
  • The wages and employment benefits you lost when you missed work after your injury, including the value of sick leave and vacation days you spent; 
  • Future income you likely will not earn because your injuries have left you temporarily or permanently unable to work; and
  • Your pain, suffering, inconvenience, and loss of enjoyment of your life’s pursuits and relationships. 

In the case of an injury caused by someone’s extreme or intentional misconduct (such as an intentional tort), a personal injury attorney in Miami 

may also have the ability to secure an award of punitive damages on your behalf from a Miami-Dade court
