Car Crashes in West Palm Beach

An injury accident in Florida typically takes place very suddenly and unexpectedly. According to statistics, there were more than nearly 250,000 injury accidents in our state in 2019. While many of these victims were able to walk away with minor injuries, thousands more suffered serious injuries requiring extensive medical care and treatment. When you have been hurt in a Florida car accident, you could experience severe pain and suffering, missed time from work, and a long road to recovery.

Following the crash, you are likely to have many questions regarding your legal rights and what you should do next. Fortunately, there is help available. If you were hurt and the crash was not your fault, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Under Florida law, you could be entitled to a recovery to compensate you for your injuries and the costs associated with the crash. It is important to recover enough so that you are not left financially responsible for the actions and behaviors of other motorists.
