Miami Personal Injury and Hurricane Damage Attorneys
People who have suffered a personal injury or had their home devastated by a hurricane face similar issues, which is why it makes sense for the attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga in Miami to represent both. In either case, you must figure out how to heal or rebuild under less than ideal circumstances. You may not have the money to pay for treatment or repairs.
For people who are injured, you may not be able to return to work, and each day puts you further behind. For people whose homes are damaged, you may no longer be able to live there, and must pay for hotel rooms, meals and other living expenses out of pocket. You also likely don’t have the necessary funds to make your home livable again without an insurance claim settlement.
Our goal at Kanner & Pintaluga is to help people recover from these life tragedies by being the advocate they need at a difficult time. We fight for the money our clients require to recover and provide resources that can help them get life back to normal.

Hurricane Damage Attorneys in Miami
Hurricane property damage insurance claims can be complex. Insurance companies put a lot of exclusions in their homeowners insurance policies to minimize the claim dollars they have to pay out after natural disasters. That’s why they don’t even offer flood insurance anymore, forcing homeowners to get a separate policy through FEMA.
Storm surge isn’t the only thing that causes damage during a hurricane though. There are, in fact, many sources of damage that can result in a claim, and many of those hurricane damages should be covered by your homeowners insurance policy. There are all sorts of mistakes or misinterpretations that could result in a claim being wrongfully denied, and our Miami property damage attorneys are committed to helping make it right by representing homeowners in these disputes.
We will gather evidence, bring in independent claims adjusters if necessary and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure you receive the money you need to repair your home back to the way it was before the hurricane.
Personal Injury Cases in Miami
We’ve helped thousands of people, including many in Miami, Florida, who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence. Our personal injury attorneys have represented clients in all types of cases, from auto accidents and workplace injuries to slip and falls, boat accidents and dog bites. We understand the struggles our clients face, and we know how best to pursue the monetary compensation they need to get past their injuries.
The steps involved in a typical personal injury claim are:
- Investigation and evidence gathering is key in every personal injury case. We gather as much documentation as possible, including medical records, accident photos, video evidence if it’s available, witness testimony and expert testimony.
- We use the evidence we gather to create a compelling narrative that clearly explains what happened, when it happened and what the consequences were for our client. Our goal is to prove the negligent party caused our client’s injury and should be held accountable for the costs that resulted.
- We negotiate with the opposing insurance company and their attorneys in an attempt to reach a settlement. In many cases, the insurance company would prefer to settle out of court rather than risk even higher damages and the cost of a trial, so they’ll decide to offer you a fair settlement during negotiations.
- If they don’t want to settle, we have no problem going to court to argue our case in front of a judge and jury.
