Hialeah Personal Injury Lawyer
Put Decades of Experience in Your Corner
Accidental injuries happen. Even when we are careful, we cannot control the actions of others. We may therefore fall victim to injuries caused by another’s negligence, carelessness, or even intentional wrongdoing.
Fortunately, we have the right to hold at-fault individuals and companies accountable for the harm they have caused. This is accomplished through the civil court system by way of personal injury lawsuits.
Morales & Cerino has been serving Florida’s injured for over 20 years. Our Hialeah personal injury lawyers have over 100 years of combined legal experience, and this means that we know how to approach each type of personal injury claim with professionalism and care in order to pursue the best possible outcome.
Some of the types of personal injury matters we take on include, but are not limited to:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Injuries that occur on another’s property
- Injuries caused by defective products
- Accidents and injuries at work
Injured in an Accident? We Can Help.
Most personal injury lawsuits involve some type of accident, which was caused because another person or a company failed to exercise proper caution or care in the circumstances. An example may be a driver who was texting while driving and ran a red light, striking a pedestrian.
That driver may be held accountable through a personal injury action, and compensation would most likely be paid through that driver’s auto insurance policy.
Accident-related personal injury claims can arise from:
- Auto accidents
- Bus accidents
- Boat accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
- Diving accidents
- Dog bites
- Electrical shock
- Machinery accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sports accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Truck accidents
- Tractor-trailer accidents
- Workplace accidents
Time Limit for Filing a Claim in Florida
Every state has a statute of limitations, or a time limit, in which you can file a personal injury claim for compensation. The deadline in Florida is four years from the date of the injury. If you have not filed your claim within this time, you lose out on the opportunity to pursue compensation.

“...if you want HONEST and competent lawyers who know their way around a courtroom and can get the best possible results for your case, hire them.” - Satisfied Client
Another party might be liable for your injuries if you suffered damages due to their negligence or intentional act. Negligence refers to another party’s lack of care toward you and others around them.
When this results in injury to someone else, they can be held liable. If it is determined that another party acted negligently, you may be entitled to compensation.
Damages that an Injury Lawsuit Can Cover
If your claim is successful and it was proven that the other party was at fault for causing your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for the following losses:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages from work
- Property damage from the accident
- The cost of hiring help for chores you can’t complete due to the accident
- Your emotional distress
- Loss of consortium (damage to familial relationships)
