Established South Florida Lawyer Handles Personal Injury Lawsuits

Miami firm with a strong track record holds negligent parties accountable

You can’t undo an injury or fatality caused by a negligent party, but you can get a substantial financial recovery if you retain proper legal counsel. As the founder of Traitz Law Firm in Miami, I have tried more than 225 jury cases to verdict over a career spanning more than 40 years. In South Florida and throughout the state, clients and professional colleagues count on me to litigate matters involving serious personal injuries, wrongful death claims and complicated medical malpractice actions. Having obtained more than $100 million for victims and their families, I have the skill, experience and determination to obtain full payment for you in a verdict or settlement. *Confirmed by LexisNexis (Florida Jury Verdict Search)

Experienced legal counselor advises on auto accident claims

Busy South Florida roads and increasingly distracted drivers can result in serious auto accidents. Once you’ve been injured in a crash, medical costs start to mount, especially if your condition prevents you from working. My firm takes immediate action to handle issues such as:

  • Insurance claims — As a no-fault auto insurance state, Florida requires people hurt in vehicle collisions to seek relief first from their own insurers. However, accidents causing serious harm give victims the ability to file suit against the at-fault driver.
  • Truck accidents — If you’ve been hit by a large truck or another commercial vehicle, my firm will find out if regulations were violated by the driver or fleet owner. From there, I can pursue justice during settlement negotiations or in court.
  • Pedestrian injuries — When someone is struck while walking, there might be conflicting accounts as to whether the pedestrian was in a marked crosswalk or not. To maximize the likelihood of a successful claim, my firm will make every effort to locate the relevant information and witnesses.

In a free initial consultation, I’ll assess your situation and explain what type of financial recovery you might be entitled to.

Skillful attorney assists clients harmed by medical malpractice

If you know or believe that you received substandard treatment from a doctor, hospital or some other healthcare provider, you need to take certain legal steps to enforce your rights. Over four decades, I have won millions of dollars for clients in medical malpractice cases and can guide you through the litigation process. Often, people who suspect malpractice aren’t sure if a problem occurred. I bring in medical experts to evaluate the circumstances in your case and attest to your condition to determine whether professional standards of care were violated.

Effective litigator takes on manufacturers of defective products

Without warning, a consumer or industrial product could malfunction, leading to severe physical harm. If this occurs, my firm can investigate whether the problem was triggered by a flawed design, a manufacturing error, poor labeling or some other factor. I have won numerous successful results against powerful adversaries and will bring in subject matter experts when necessary to bolster your case. Regardless of the defendants involved, my firm will pursue appropriate relief to aid your recovery and prevent further harm.

Dedicated advocate works to obtain damages in wrongful death actions

Putting the pieces back together after a loved one dies unexpectedly is a grueling process that can take years. However, if someone’s negligence or intentional act contributed to the fatality, it’s important to understand your legal rights and seek justice. In Florida, representatives of the decedent’s estate can file a wrongful death suit against the parties at fault, as long as they file within two years of the victim’s death. My firm litigates these cases to secure available damages such as reimbursement for funeral expenses, income the victim would have earned, and the value of the decedent’s companionship.
