Delray Beach Car Accident Lawyer

When your injuries were suffered in a car wreck, you can hold the responsible party accountable. Discuss your options with a Delray Beach car accident lawyer.

Picture this: You’re driving down the road on a seemingly normal day when suddenly you’re rear-ended, sideswiped, or run off the road. It was completely unexpected, and the rush of “what now” is probably overwhelming.

This scenario is more than just a hypothetical situation. It happens to millions of Americans every day, and when it happens to you, the best thing to do is contact a Delray Beach car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo.

We’ll be there to act as your legal representative to the insurance companies, as well as guide you through the steps of your personal injury claim so that you can get the compensation you deserve. The first step is to investigate the cause and determine who was at fault.

Cause and Fault in Car Crashes

The insurance companies, like your attorney, will want to know what caused the accident. Your lawyer will go through all of the proper channels to investigate the incident to not only figure out what caused it, but also to determine who exactly was responsible. Possible causes may include any of the following:

  • A distracted driver
  • A driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • A drowsy driver
  • Construction hazards
  • Defective tires or auto parts

It’s important that you tell your attorney everything that happened when it comes to the accident so that we have both a good background and a place to start the investigation.

Any of the above causes comes with a laundry list of possible persons or equipment at fault, and each of those scenarios can affect the amount of compensation you may be eligible for. Regardless of the outcome, it’s vital to mitigate the amount of fault you are found responsible for, as it will reduce your potential settlement amount.

How Much Money Can I Recover for an Auto Wreck?

This question is tough to answer. The investigation will reveal all sorts of potential causes and parties who were at fault, which will all be included in your demand for compensation. That being said, you can expect the following expenses to be included:

  • Medical bills, both present and future
  • Pain and suffering, including the loss of quality of life
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy prescribed for your recovery
  • Property repairs or replacement, including your vehicle

The best way to get an accurate estimate on how much your claim could be worth is to talk to your Delray Beach car accident lawyer. There are many additional factors that could be included, but your attorney will go through all of the potentials when that time comes.
