Mausner Graham Injury Law PLLC, Personal Injury Attorneys in Miami, Florida, Providing Compassionate Legal Representation to Accident Victims in Need
Have you been injured in an accident or lost a loved one in a wrongful death? Chances are that the agreement for a settlement from the insurance company may leave a lot to be desired, potentially not even adequately covering the medical expenses. You may be entitled to seek compensation.
At Mausner Graham Injury Law PLLC, our lawyers have years of experience providing legal counsel to accident victims in pursuit of justice. No financial recovery can bring back your lost family member or return you to a time before your serious injuries. However, a fair settlement may ease the financial burden a great deal.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
The cost of hiring an attorney should never be why you decide not to hire one. If you choose to take legal action while representing yourself, you have a much lower chance of success than those who elected to hire professional legal representation. Additionally, it may be simply too much to ask of any injured person to contend with litigation against an antagonistic opposing party or negotiate with their insurer. It would be best if you were spending this time resting and recovering.
We may only offer an estimate for the cost after learning more about your unique case.
However, please note that our firm operates on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if we successfully recover compensation for you in your case. If we are unsuccessful in this objective, then you will not owe us anything regarding legal fees for our services.
What Sort of Compensation Could You Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
It is easier to estimate the amount of financial recovery you stand to be rewarded for your personal injury claim after examining the particulars of your unique case in more detail. And even under closer review, there can be no guarantees of the sort of compensation you may ultimately receive.
Our personal injury attorneys will review all relevant evidence in your case, speak with expert witnesses, examine medical records, and negotiate with the liable parties’ insurance carrier to collect maximum compensation for your case. Whether you have suffered minor injuries, permanent injuries with life-altering consequences, or some form of emotional suffering, you deserve to pursue compensation.
You may receive economic and non-economic damages such as:
- Diminished quality of life
- Emotional distress
- Future lost earning capacity
- Lost companionship
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Ongoing medical care
- Pain and suffering
- Physical therapy rehabilitation costs
- Psychological therapy expenses
- Punitive damages
- Wrongful death

Do You Need a Lawyer for Your Personal Injury Case?
Depending on the severity of your injury and who was at fault, you may or may not need to hire a professional. Similarly, you may or may not require medical treatment for your injuries, as you may be able to recover well enough on your own. But it is always better to be safe than sorry.
If you are the victim of an accident, it is essential that you never claim that you are ‘okay’ and unhurt. Your injuries may manifest much later, and any comments about being uninjured could be used against you later. It is better to get checked out by a doctor just in case.
The same can be said about speaking to a lawyer. You may not need legal representation, but it is smart to talk to a professional just in case.
Our firm offers a free case evaluation to all prospective new clients.

Q: Is a dog owner liable for injuries if their dog bites a person?
A: Yes. Dog owners may be held liable for dog bite injuries regardless of whether their dog has ever shown any history of aggression. Florida does not have a “one-bite” rule, like certain other states, where a dog is given a certain allowance provided it never exhibited aggressive or violent tendencies in the past. Dog owners are held to a standard of “strict liability” for injuries sustained due to their animal attacking a person or another dog.
Q: Is Florida really the most dangerous state for pedestrians?
A: Yes, unfortunately. Six Florida cities ranked among the 20 worst cities in the nation, with Daytona Beach being the most dangerous of them all. Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater ranked fourth nationally, followed by Jacksonville in the sixth spot, Orlando in eighth, Palm Bay in 12th, Miami in 14th, and Sarasota in 19th. And what’s scary is that these numbers are only getting worse.
Q: What is the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in Florida?
A:Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Florida is four years. Civil injury suits are shorter at two years. A personal injury claim against a government entity in Florida has a statute of limitations of three years. If you are looking to file a wrongful death lawsuit, the statute of limitations is two years. Once these windows have expired, filing a successful lawsuit and recovering damages for your case may prove impossible.
Q:If my injury isn’t severe enough to send me to the hospital, is it still worth considering taking legal action?
A: It is always worth talking to a lawyer about your accident injuries, just in case. Even a minor rear-ending collision that doesn’t seem to hurt at first may eventually result in severe symptoms of whiplash or structural damage to your vehicle that was not previously apparent. By speaking to a lawyer early on, you can better prepare for these possibilities, even if you do not ultimately end up taking legal action in the case. Remember, if you are in an accident, it is important not to brush it off and act like all is well. These comments could come back to bite you later.
Q: I’m worried my elderly father is being abused or neglected in his nursing home. What are the warning signs I should look out for?
A: Florida ranks among the worst states for reports regarding nursing home abuse and neglect. More than 40% of Florida’s nursing home residents have reported abuse, and more than 90% have reported that they have witnessed neglect. Signs of abuse and neglect may include physical indicators like unexplained bruising, sudden weight loss, dehydration, malnutrition, open wounds, and poor hygiene. Other warning signs include changes in emotional behavior like being withdrawn, prone to bouts of anger or fear, and inexplicable sobbing. Financial abuse may be indicated by unexplained withdrawals or sudden changes to a will.
Q: If I slip and fall on the sidewalk outside a popular business, do I have a legal right to sue them?
A: Property owners owe a certain duty of care to lawful visitors and guests. This duty extends to the sidewalk outside their place of business. If the property owner knew about a potential hazard – a broken sidewalk or a slippery surface caused by water, ice, or chemicals – and they took no steps to address the hazardous condition, they may be held liable for injuries that occur as the result of an accident on that walkway.
Q: What should I do if I’m in a car accident?
A: Firstly, determine how badly you are hurt. If you feel okay, check on the passengers in your vehicle, then check for injuries to pedestrians and the occupants of other vehicles. Do not move victims unless necessary. Call 911 for emergency services. While awaiting their arrival, speak with the other party and exchange insurance coverage information if your injuries are minor. Do not apologize or say you are unhurt – such comments may be used against you. Document the car wreck by photograph and video. Please speak to any eyewitnesses and get their account of what happened. If an insurance adjuster arrives on the scene, don’t speak to them. Call an attorney and then provide law enforcement with your story.
Q: How do I prove negligence in a personal injury lawsuit?
A: For most all personal injury claims in Florida, it is necessary to prove a level of negligence or recklessness on the part of the individual(s) responsible for the injuries. To establish negligence, your personal injury accident attorneys will review all relevant evidence to your case, consult with expert witnesses, examine your medical records, speak to eyewitnesses, and work alongside you to craft an airtight case that proves that someone else’s negligence led to your accident.
