Miami, known as the Magic City, was officially incorporated in 1896. However, Miami’s history dates back thousands of years to the Tequesta Indians. Eventually Spain claimed Miami as its own in 1566. Eventually, the United States obtained Florida from Spain in 1821. The City of Miami itself was essentially planned by Julia Tuttle, the woman for whom the main causeway connection Miami to Miami Beach is named.
Most people refer to most of the communities which actually surround Miami, including Coconut Grove, Brickell, Coral Way and Little Havana, as Miami. This incorporation of many smaller municipalities into Miami, cause census figures to credit Miami with almost 2.5 million residents. Although in fact, Miami’s population is just over 400,000. And, while Miami is home to the Heat and the Marlins, its most famous sports team, the Dolphins, actually play their games in Miami Gardens, not the City of Miami.
Because of its close proximity to the Caribbean, more than half of the City of Miami’s residents were born outside of the United States. The city’s biggest employers, other than the local government and school board, are the University of Miami and its health care partner, Jackson Memorial Hospital. Jackson Memorial Hospital is actually the Public Health Trust of Miami Dade County. The hospital provides medical care to indigent and needy patients. The hospital is also a level one trauma center, where a number of seriously injured victims of the thousands of annual Miami car accident victims are treated. Those accidents take place on roadways including I-95, Biscayne Boulevard, US1 and the Palmetto and Dolphin Expressways.
When those Miami car accidents are caused by someone else’s fault, and result in personal injuries, Miami personal injury attorney Joseph Lipsky tries his client’s cases to juries of the 11th Judicial Circuit at the Dade County Courthouse, at 73 W. Flagler Street. With over 20 years Joseph Lipsky of personal injury trial experience assisting seriously injured accident victims from Miami, and across Miami-Dade County, including Hialeah, Homestead, Florida City, South Beach, and Kendall, his only goal is to achieve full compensation for his client’s lost wages, unpaid medical bills and help them with their pain and suffering.
As a fourth generation Miamian, Joseph Lipsky believes in supporting his community, whether through involvement in charitable organizations, or by volunteering his time reading to elementary school kids through the Reading for Life initiative.
