Injury Risks in Boca Raton
Boca Raton is a beautiful and fun place to live, work, or visit, but the area doesn’t come without risks of accidents or injuries. Some injury risks that exist in the area include:
- Driving on I-95 or the Florida Turnpike
- Driving through dangerous intersections, including State Road 7 and Glades Road
- Pedestrian accidents, especially involving beachgoers to South Beach Park, Red Reef Park, or Spanish River Park
- Boating accidents due to inexperienced boat operators, boating under the influence, or other negligence on the water
- Accidents involving rented electric scooters or e-bikes
- Crashes due to drunk drivers in and around Downtown Boca
- Bicycle or motorcycle accidents
- Accidents in hotels or resorts
These, of course, are far from the only risks of accidents and injuries that exist in this South Florida region. No matter how careful you might be, there is always a chance you might end up in the ER seeking treatment for a sudden injury.
Any type of injury can be costly, and if someone else was to blame for your injuries, they should also be responsible for your injury-related losses. Seek a free case evaluation from our Boca Raton injury lawyers as soon as you can after receiving medical treatment.
Types of Injury Claims We Handle
Each injury has a different cause and different effects, and the details of your personal injury claim will depend on your specific circumstances. Our team thoroughly reviews what happened to cause your injuries and advises you of your rights and options. We have experience handling a wide range of injury cases, including those below.
There are reports of car crashes in Boca Raton and throughout the State of Florida each and every day, and these crashes might cause property damage only, minor injuries, catastrophic injuries, or fatalities. Even minor injuries might need medical treatment and result in bills and other losses, which means you might need to file an insurance claim to seek compensation.
Many large commercial trucks travel through Boca Raton, especially on I-95. While these trucks are necessary for the economy, they also put everyone on the roads in harm’s way. Semi-trucks, flatbed trucks, box trucks, tanker trucks, and more are all much larger and heavier than the usual cars and SUVs that we drive, and when a truck crashes into a smaller vehicle, it can cause devastating damage and injuries.
Florida has the second-highest number of registered motorcycles of all the states in the U.S., and for a good reason - motorcycles allow people to enjoy the gorgeous scenery and climate while enjoying the convenience of a smaller vehicle. However, being exposed on a smaller vehicle also makes it more difficult for drivers to see motorcycles, especially if they are distracted, and it makes it more likely for motorcyclists to sustain severe injuries in a crash.
Slip and Falls
We’ve all been to the store and seen something spill or encounter “Caution: Wet Floor” signs. However, some business or property owners fail to properly address possible hazards or warn visitors that dangerous conditions might exist. This can lead people to slip and fall, and these accidents can cause serious injuries. Negligent owners or managers should be liable for any slip and fall injuries and losses.
Thousands of people die from accidental injuries each year in the United States, and more die from acts of violence. When you lose a close family member due to the careless or wrongful conduct of another party, Florida law gives you the right to file a claim for wrongful death. While money will never stop the fatal accident from happening, financial recovery can help your position and give you a sense of justice moving forward.
We also handle many additional types of injury cases involving the following and more:
- Premises liability
- Negligent security
- Boating accidents
- Construction accidents
- Burn injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Products liability
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Dog bites
- Workplace accidents
How the Personal Injury Process Works in Florida
The process of recovering compensation for injuries can differ depending on what happened. For example, if you were in a car accident, you will need to start with a PIP claim, no matter who was at fault. If your injuries are serious, you might be able to seek additional compensation from the at-fault driver or even their employer.
For other accidents and injuries, we generally begin with an insurance claim and negotiations with the negligent party’s coverage. Insurance companies can be difficult, and they try to pay out as little as possible on claims. When you have the right legal representation, insurers will know that you mean business, and they cannot lowball your offer.
In some cases, insurance companies deny claims or offer much less than you need to cover your losses. If this happens, we can file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court to keep pursuing the full amount you deserve for your:
- Medical bills
- Lost earnings
- Future losses
- Pain and suffering
