No one expects or deserves to be injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another person. Unfortunately, serious, injury-causing incidents are a daily occurrence in the city of Aventura and the surrounding areas. With a population of 35,000, Aventura boasts world-class shopping, various public parks, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, and sandy beaches—all just 18 miles north of Miami. All of this activity exposes residents and visitors to the risk of injury on a daily basis.
Accidents resulting in injury often leave victims with significant losses—both economic and non-economic. These losses can include medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage, and a diminished quality of life. Fortunately for accident victims, Florida law entitles people who are hurt in accidents caused by the negligence of others to compensation for these and other losses. Obtaining this compensation does not occur automatically, however, and victims often need to engage in tedious negotiations with an insurance company, or even file a lawsuit, to recover damages.
At Sibley Dolman Accident Injury Lawyers, LLP, we have built our practice around representing the rights of the injured and work tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive as much compensation as possible under the law.

Aggressive Negotiators – Skilled Litigators
Contrary to what television and movies may have you believe, the vast majority of personal injury cases do not go to trial. Instead, they are resolved by the victim and the at-fault party’s insurance company coming to a settlement agreement. In a settlement, the at-fault party’s insurance (or the at-fault party himself or herself) agrees to pay the victim a certain amount of money in exchange for the victim releasing that party from any further liability.
Importantly, as an accident victim, you should not make the mistake of thinking that you do not need a lawyer because your case is unlikely to go to court. Any settlement that you accept should compensate you for all of your losses, including those to which it is difficult to assign a dollar value, such as pain and suffering. Insurance companies, as a rule, try to minimize the amount of money they pay out—even for completely valid claims.
In many cases, insurance companies will take advantage of unrepresented victims and make unreasonably low settlement offers hoping that they will just accept them and move on with their lives. Sometimes, they even engage in tactics like dragging a claim out for months or even years in an effort to wear victims down. In such cases, victims may accept an offer that they know is too low just to get some help with their mounting bills. For these reasons, it is highly advisable to retain an attorney to represent you in settlement negotiations, even if the insurance company seems willing to pay. At Sibley Dolman, we are tenacious negotiators who will work hard to get you the settlement you deserve.
While most cases are settled out of court, some are not. In cases in which liability for the accident is unclear or damages are in serious dispute, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. Filing a personal injury claim in court is a complicated matter, and victims should always be represented by legal counsel. The lawyers of Sibley Dolman are experienced litigators who will not hesitate to take a large insurance company to court if it is in our clients’ best interests.
Why You Should Not Try to Handle a Claim on Your Own?
An insurance company may try to tell you that you can file a personal injury claim on your own and technically they are right. While it is possible to handle a personal injury claim on your own, an insurance company will count on you making a number of mistakes due to the fact that you lack experience and knowledge regarding personal injury claims. Many people that attempt to handle personal injury claims on their own will make mistakes that will diminish the value of their claims which is what the insurance claims want. It is within your best interest to seek an experienced attorney that can not only help you avoid these pitfalls but use their knowledge to get you a settlement that’s value likely would exceed one secured on your own.
How Much Will You Pay?
You pay nothing unless we recover compensation on your behalf. Accident victims are often concerned about how much it will cost to retain an attorney to represent them. This is certainly understandable when you consider that they are already facing unexpected expenses such as vehicle repairs and medical bills—all while potentially losing significant income because they are unable to work!
Fortunately, accident victims can retain an attorney to represent them without having to pay anything up-front – or at all if they ultimately do not recover compensation. At Sibley Dolman, we take all of our cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that we only collect legal fees if we successfully recover compensation on our client’s behalf. In addition, the fees that we collect will come directly out of the settlement or award we secure, so our clients never have to use the money they already have to pay for legal representation. By using this type of fee arrangement, we are able to ensure that people who have been injured are able to retain an attorney to represent their interests.
