West Palm Beach Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury happens when you have sustained physical or mental injuries due to an accident caused by another person’s negligence, or through the use of a product. A Florida personal injury lawyer is often called to help assess a person’s injury claim, compute the compensation for the said injury, and bring the case to trial.

Personal Injury Claims in Florida

If you are in the process of filing a personal injury case, you need to consult with a slip and fall accident attorney, a brain injury lawyer, or any accident lawyer in order to asses “damages” accurately. Damages refer to the financial cost of your injuries in monetary, physical, and mental aspects. If you decide to pursue the case, you will now be called the plaintiff, and the person you are suing shall be the defendant.

Remember that the personal injury you sustain will affect your present and your future physical and mental capacities. The amount of a personal injury claim settlement is not a number you pull from the sky. Rather, it is a rational amount that will allow you and your family the quality of life you deserve after temporary or permanent disability, and even death.

What Money Can I Recover from my Personal Injury Claim?

The name describes itself. Compensatory damages aim to compensate the plaintiff for what was lost due to the injury. Here are the more common types of compensatory damages for a personal injury case:

  • Medical treatment. A personal injury case will award the cost of present medical care, as well as the foreseen cost of care you will be needing in the future.
  • Income. Loss of current income and the loss of future potential income are also taken into consideration.
  • Emotional distress, pain and suffering. While it is hard to put a value, this aspect of personal injury is a very serious matter that will impact your well being.
  • Punitive Damages. There are also punitive damages. If a court finds the cause of your accident to be caused by complete carelessness, you may be awarded punitive injury damages apart from compensatory damages.

 

Types of Cases our Injury Lawyers Handle:

  • Car accidents: Vehicle accidents can cause temporary and permanent injuries, as well as untimely death.
  • Wrongful death: If someone dies due to another person’s negligence, then the bereaved family may make a claim for wrongful death.
  • Slip and fall injuries: If a person slips on another person’s property due to negligence, the owner of the property may be held liable for the injury damages.
  • Defective product injuries:  When products do not deliver as they promise, it can cause serious harm and illness.
  • Dog bite injuries: Owners should be responsible for restraining their dogs. In the event of a dog bite, the owner may be held liable for injuries sustained.
  • Dangerous drug injuries: People take medication to improve their physical well-being. If the drug is defective, it can cause serious harm to the individual.
