Car Accidents  Help Is Just a Call Away


While West Palm Beach may be known for its beautiful beaches and water, entertainment, and dining options, it’s also known for something else: traffic. And the more traffic there is, the greater the risk of a car accident. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident, you need our West Palm Beach car accident lawyer on your side who can help you to build your case and recover the settlement you deserve.

How Car Accidents Happen

Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in our city. When a car accident occurs, those involved may face life-long consequences as a result.

Car accidents almost always are caused by a driver’s error or negligence, such as:

  • Driving while intoxicated;
  • Driving while distracted;
  • Driving too fast for conditions;
  • Driving aggressively;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Running a red light or stop sign;
  • Failing to adhere to posted traffic safety rules; and
  • More.

In some cases, car accidents are caused because of dangerous road conditions or defects, or as a result of defective car parts. However, accidents caused by these things are less common–another driver is usually to blame.

Damages Recoverable in a Car Accident Claim

If you have been injured in a car accident, you’ll need to file a claim with your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage first, as Florida is a no-fault car insurance state. This means that even if another driver caused your accident, you must turn to your own insurer for compensation first.

However, if your injuries are serious, you can step outside of the no-fault system and bring forth a claim against the other driver’s insurance, or even directly against the driver. If you do this, you can seek compensation for the full value of your economic damages–such as property damage costs, medical bills, and lost wages–as well as compensation for your noneconomic damages, like pain, suffering, and emotional distress.

How a West Palm Beach Car Accident Attorney Can Help

A West Palm Beach car accident attorney can help you by explaining to you your rights and options following a crash. Additionally, your attorney will open an investigation into your case to gather evidence related to how the accident occurred, who’s liable, and what your damages are worth. An attorney can also call upon experts to build your case. Your attorney will also be responsible for managing various aspects of your claim, such as filing your claim documents, negotiating your settlement, and talking with the insurance adjuster.
