West Palm Beach Car Accident Lawyer
For all of the advancements in automotive technology, car, truck, and bus accidents remain one of the greatest dangers to our health, safety, and financial stability. Each year, thousands of Florida families suffer the devastating effects of auto accidents, which can include death and serious injuries, potentially resulting in years of high medical bills and missed work. At the law firm of Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith, we have handled thousands of auto accident cases over our 89-year history as a firm. We understand the physical pain and devastating financial impact that auto accidents have on individuals and families, and our West Palm Beach car accident lawyers will fight for a speedy recovery for all of your injuries.
Winning an Auto Accident Claim in Florida
Florida state law requires that, in many car accident scenarios, injured victims access their own insurance policies first. But where an individual has been involved in an auto accident involving serious injury, he or she may pursue a claim against an at-fault driver for causing the injury. Thus, winning an auto accident in Florida will require proving that you suffered a “serious injury” and that the other party was at fault in causing your injury. The other driver and his or her insurance company will likely try to deflect blame for the accident or place the blame on you, but we will use our years of experience to counter such arguments and make the best possible legal arguments for your recovery.
Recovering Damages in Your Car Accident Claim
Once you retain our firm’s services, we will get to work immediately to investigate the matter and begin negotiations with your insurance company, the at-fault driver, and their insurance company. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and other professionals who are in the business of minimizing claims, but we have decades of experience of going up against the insurance companies to fight for every penny you are owed, including the cost of:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages and reduced income potential
- Property damage
- Wrongful death proceeds
The Importance of Contacting an Lawyer Immediately After an Accident
Because winning an auto accident case can often include an investigation of the accident, which can involve an examination of the vehicles, the accident scene, and talking with eyewitnesses, it is important to contact an lawyer as soon as possible after the auto accident to begin this process. Speaking with an lawyer sooner rather than later will also help speed the process of obtaining recovery, so that you can pay for medical bills and family needs as they arise and avoid excess debt. Finally, Florida imposes a strict statute of limitations on car accident claims, requiring them to be filed within a set statutory period.
