Palm Beach County Car Accident Lawyer
Even a minor car crash can result in serious injuries and devastating losses. Find out how to get compensated by speaking with a Palm Beach County car accident lawyer.
Imagine a day where you can drive to work, school, practice, or even the grocery store without having to worry about the possibility of getting injured in a wreck. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, it’s just not going to happen. You can be the safest driver on the road, and all it takes is for one negligent driver to make a poor decision and crash into you.
A car accident can happen in a split second, but the aftermath can last for months, years, or the rest of your life. It’s important that once you’ve been hurt in an accident you call your insurance company to file the claim. However, you shouldn’t do this without help from a Palm Beach County car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo.
A lawyer will help you navigate the long journey ahead after your accident, including dealing with the insurance companies, handling the investigation of the collision, and determining compensation. The first thing your lawyer will do is find out who was at fault.
Determining Cause And Fault in Automobile Collisions
Your insurance company, regardless of who is at fault, will probably want to settle quickly before you can get an attorney on board. If you’re dealing with the other driver’s insurance through a personal injury claim, they’ll do everything they can to blame you for what happened because it will reduce what they have to pay you.
If you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your final payout will be decreased proportionately. This is why it’s critical to have a capable Palm Beach County car accident lawyer on your side to mitigate your level of fault.
Any number of things can cause a car accident, including the following:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Faulty auto parts or tires
- Hazardous road conditions, whether due to roadwork or disrepair
It’s important to identify the specific cause of the accident so that we can then gather all of the necessary information to include in your demand for compensation. There may be multiple people responsible for the crash, so every small piece needs to be located.
Compensation for a Car Crash
We could try to give you an estimate of how much your claim may be worth, but it’s a difficult thing to do without first reviewing everything incurred by your injuries. There are a number of different pieces in the compensation puzzle, and trying to compile them without all of the necessary information is difficult at best.
Luckily, we can tell you some common items that are included in most car accident claims:
- Medical bills, both current and expected for the future
- Loss of quality of life due to injury
- Property damage repair or replacement
- Cost of any medical equipment needed to cope with your injuries
- Compensation for lost wages, income, or earning potential
