Law Firm Overview FREE CONSULTATIONCulmo Trial Attorneys is a medical malpractice law firm in Miami, Florida. We provide full service representation across all areas of complex civil litigation while bringing dedication, discretion and determination to each case.
Over the years of trying cases throughout Florida, we’ve learned that the most important advantage a lawyer brings into a courtroom is preparation: knowing the case, the law, and the facts backwards and forwards. In the same way, information is an advantage for individuals: By understanding your rights, and your risks, you can best prevent harmful outcomes. And by knowing what to do when the unthinkable does happen, you can get the care and help you need.
Our mission is to empower you with knowledge; to give you the facts you need to be proactive in protecting yourself, your family -- and your future. On these pages you’ll find information about patients‘ rights, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, informed consent, and how, when necessary, the legal system can work with you, and for you.

Areas of Law Description
Our practice includes:
- Hospital Errors
When hospital errors occur, they are only reported 13% of the time. Often, hospital staff may not recognize that an error harmed a patient or may not realize that harmful events should be reported. A recent report analyzed nearly 300 adverse patient events based upon a review of medical records. A review was conducted to see if the respective hospitals had identified any medical error and informed the patients. The report concluded that most often the hospital did not do so.
- Insurance Bad Faith
When an insurance company commences in activities which breach its obligations to act in good faith towards the individuals and companies that it insures, particularly in regards to the manner in which it defends and/or settles a claim, this is referred to as insurance bad faith. There are a number of instances in which it may be determined that insurance bad faith may have been committed by an insurance company. Anyone who believes that their insurance company has not acted properly in handling their case, and may have committed insurance bad faith, should talk to an attorney.
- Mass Transit Accidents
Given the nature of traffic in the Greater Miami area, as well as the known prevalence of impatient drivers and dodgy intersections, many residents have turned to public transportation as an alternative means of “getting around,” so to speak. While these public transit systems generally tend to be safe, accidents can and do happen from time to time. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a mass transit accident—be it a bus crash, train wreck, railroad collision aviation accident, or another type of public transit accident—talking Miami trial lawyer Tom Culmo is the first step toward obtaining just compensation for your injuries and damages.
- Miami Personal Injury
Each year, thousands of Floridians are injured or killed in accidents caused by various forms of negligence. Whether an individual suffers injuries (fatal or nonfatal) as a result of a motor vehicle wreck, mass transit accident, construction/workplace accident, defective product, slip and fall, if negligence played a role—you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages. This applies to families seeking compensation for the loss of a loved one as well.
- Premises Liability
Whether you are on the premises of a shopping mall, apartment complex or hospital, land and property owners not only have the legal responsibility to maintain their property, they must ensure that it is free of potential safety hazards. While there are many causes for premises liability injuries, some of the most common include:
• Slippery ground, icy sidewalks
• Potholes, uneven concrete
• Uneven stairs
• Poorly maintained landscaping
• Poor lighting
• Inadequate security
• Toxic chemicals, waste products
• Dog bites, animal attacks
- Product Defect
There are a number of conditions that may be the foundation for a product liability claim. These can include factors such as negligence, possible breach of the indicated warranty of fitness, or what is referred to as strict liability. The instances in which a product liability claim can be filed vary based on where the offense originated. In most instances, however, the claimant merely is required to demonstrate proof, when attempting to show cause for product liability, that there is, indeed, a defect present in the product in question.
- Transportation Accidents
Given that Florida is a no-fault state (meaning all drivers are required by law to purchase personal injury protection (PIP) auto insurance to cover themselves in the event of a motor vehicle accident), crash victims face far more obstacles when it comes to seeking compensation for injuries and damages. Automobile insurance companies are required to pay policyholders involved in property damage and/or injury crashes a minimum of $10,000 to cover their medical expenses and physical vehicle damages— regardless of who is “at-fault.”
