South Florida’s Experienced Injury Lawyer

Serving Sunrise, Miami, Dade County, and all of Florida

Have you been injured due to the negligence of another person? Perhaps you were involved in an auto accident. Maybe you were harmed on the job. Regardless, you have legal rights that need to be protected, and you deserve to be compensated for your injury.

How Much Compensation Can I Recover for My Injury?

The amount of compensation you can recover will depend on a wide variety of factors – including the extent of your injuries, who hurt you, and whether you have a personal injury or a workers’ compensation claim – so we cannot answer this question without first learning about your case. However, when you speak with Mr. Benenfeld, he will be able to use the details of your accident to estimate the amount you may be able to recover for your expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and other damages.

Do I Really Need a Sunrise Injury Lawyer?

If you have been injured by the negligence of another, the answer is most likely a resounding YES. Why? Simple! The party who injured you will either have an attorney working on his or her behalf or have an insurance company with legions of lawyers dedicated to making sure you receive nothing at all in compensation, or at least minimizing any amount you recover.

Do You Offer Free Consultations?

Yes! All consultations are completely free and 100% confidential. In fact, you do not pay anything unless Mr. Benenfeld is successful in helping you secure financial compensation for your injury. At The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld, P.A., you never have to worry about legal fees. If Mr. Benenfeld secures a settlement or judgment, we retain a percentage of your recovery as compensation for our services.

What Kinds of Injury Cases Do You Handle?

Mr. Benenfeld has significant experience in cases involving all types of injuries. If you or a family member have suffered an injury at work or in any situation where you believe someone else may be to blame, he can help you understand your rights and will aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve.

Mr. Benenfeld also has significant experience representing family members in cases involving wrongful death. Losing a loved one is a tragedy, and Mr. Benenfeld is passionate about ensuring that families receive maximum compensation from the party (or parties) responsible for their loss.

Six Reasons to Choose David M. Benenfeld

  • Approachable: Dealing with a giant “mega-firm” can make you feel like a case number, not a human being. I handle all my cases personally, and I am available for your questions and concerns.
  • Compassionate: One of the main reasons I practice personal injury and workers’ compensation law rather than some other form of law is the human element. I can promise to treat your case as if I were the one who was injured.
  • Knowledgeable: Because my practice focuses entirely on personal injury and workers’ compensation law, I have learned subtle nuances of this area of law that other lawyers may miss. I base my practice on the belief that theoretical command of a specific area of law is just as important as practical skills.
  • Streetwise: All of the academic knowledge in the world is useless to a personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyer without a deep understanding of human nature, including its darker side.  I learned my “street smarts” through thousands of negotiations and courtroom battles.
  • Aggressive: It really makes me angry when opposing parties try to take advantage of my clients. I have come to understand that a controlled aggressiveness is sometimes just what it takes to get results – and I don’t hesitate to put that understanding into practice.
  • Practical: When you suffer a personal injury, the last thing you are likely to be concerned about is whether your lawyer can come up with an eloquent legal argument. Instead, you are concerned with compensation – dollars and cents. I understand that, and I live by it.

Main Practice Areas

  • Auto Accidents: Unfortunately, Florida roads are relatively dangerous, and Miami/Dade and Broward County roads are among the worst in Florida. I have successfully represented injured clients in all kinds of traffic accidents.
  • Bicycle Accidents: Bicyclists are among the most vulnerable riders on the road – they even lack the ability to accelerate out of trouble the way motorcyclists do. And most of the time, bicycle accidents with motorists are the fault of the motorist.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: The combination of lack of frame protection and low visibility frequently results in lifelong disabilities for a motorcyclist who suffers an accident. This state of affairs demands fair compensation when the other driver is at fault.
  • Nursing Home Abuse: Nursing home abuse can be some of the most despicable misconduct imaginable, especially when it occurs simply to pad a nursing home’s “bottom line”. I know how to fight back.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents/Premises Liability: Businesses are responsible for keeping their premises free from dangerous conditions. When they don’t, a premises liability claim arises, and it’s time to call a lawyer.
  • Trucking Accidents: Trucks behave like road-hugging missiles when they lose control. Because of the heavy regulation of commercial trucking, trucking accident cases can often be based on regulatory violations.
  • Work Accidents: Most work accidents are subject to workers’ compensation rules, which are different from ordinary personal injury rules. In some cases, however, an ordinary personal injury lawsuit can be filed.
  • Wrongful Death: Any personal injury claim becomes a wrongful death claim if the victim dies because of the injury. Applicable law, however, is quite different from personal injury law in many ways.
