Personal Injury Cases
At our firm, we handle personal injury and workers’ compensation matters exclusively, and we have a great deal of knowledge in these areas of the law. We represent injured people in a range of cases, including:
- Car accidents: All types of injuries are possible in motor vehicle accidents, ranging from minor to catastrophic to fatal. Common injuries suffered in car crashes include head and brain injuries, neck and soft tissue injuries, spinal cord injuries, facial injuries, and injuries to the trunk and lower extremities, as well as the upper extremities. Our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyer has experience in litigating these sorts of matters and the knowledge necessary to put forth the best possible arguments for maximum recovery on your behalf.
- Workers’ compensation: In 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), nonfatal on-the-job injuries occurred in the U.S. at a rate of 3.2 cases per 100 full-time workers. Private industry employers reported nearly 3 million nonfatal work-related illnesses and injuries. Filing for compensation can be a complex and lengthy process that can be difficult to navigate alone. Understanding how to navigate this particular legal maze is one of our specialties. As a proven workers comp lawyer I’d love to put that knowledge and experience to work for you.
- Wrongful death: When an injury caused by someone’s negligence or incompetence is severe enough to take the life of an innocent victim, survivors of the deceased are entitled to seek justice and compensation in a wrongful death claim.
- Trucking accidents: According to a report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), some of the leading factors associated with large commercial trucking accidents were found to be truck brake problems (29%), trucks traveling too fast for conditions (23%), driver use of over-the-counter drugs (17%), and driver fatigue (13%).
- Motorcycle accidents: According to the findings stated in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Hurt Report, the predominating cause of motorcycle crashes is the failure of other drivers to recognize motorcycles in traffic. The most frequently occurring accident configuration is when a driver turns left into the path of a motorcycle proceeding straight ahead. If you’ve been involved in one of these accidents, we can help.
- Bicycle accidents: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that an estimated 494,000 emergency room visits and more than 900 fatalities resulted from bicycle accidents in a recent year.
- Premises liability: Wet floors, unmarked obstacles, faulty stairs, icy sidewalks, and insufficient lighting are examples of hazardous conditions on a property that can give rise to premises liability claims when they cause visitors on the property to be injured. We have significant experience in addressing these situations and fighting for the rights of those who have been injured.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect: In a survey of nursing home staff conducted by the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), more than 50% admitted to having mistreated elderly patients with physical violence, mental abuse, or neglect within the previous year, with two-thirds of the incidents reported involving neglect. No loved one should ever go through this, and we would be honored to help you fight for your loved one’s health and well-being.
