Rideshare services are part of the gig economy, allowing virtually any driver to use their car to give paying passengers a lift to the airport, grocery store, or home. Rideshare services allow people to make extra money on the side and also allow passengers to get fast drives that sometimes cost less than a taxi.

According to the National Limb Loss Information Center, close to two million Americans live with an amputation of a limb or finger. Car collisions are the leading cause of traumatic amputations, which are amputations not caused by genetic or medical conditions.

Most car accidents in Coral Gables do not lead to amputations, but when this injury happens, the effects can be far-reaching. In most cases, doctors and emergency responders will try to avoid amputation. However, in some cases it is not possible. A finger or toe may be severed in a crash and doctors may not be able to attach it. In some cases, a limb may need to be amputated to save a patient’s life.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
