Boynton Beach Lawyers
The law plays a critical role in a democratic society. We often take for granted how the laws we live by protect us from infringements on our rights and liberties. It is only when something bad happens—when we do experience a violation of our rights, liberties, or freedoms—that we realize how the law protects us and how we can exercise our rights as citizens.
Our lawyers in Boynton Beach are here to help you. With a number of practice specialties, our team can counsel you and guide you regarding almost any issue, from personal injury and wrongful death, to homeowner insurance claims, to DUI or possession allegations. A lawyer can help you clear your name and avoid unnecessarily harsh penalties. No matter what happened, you need to call a lawyer now to find out what your rights are and how to exercise them.
Let’s go over a few of the main practice areas our attorneys can help you with:
When you suffer an injury or mishap due to circumstances beyond your control, a lawyer can help you receive compensation for your medical bills, retrieve lost wages, and even cover emotional damages. There are several specific situations that our Boynton Beach personal injury lawyers may be familiar with and can help you. Take, for example, the following:
A lawyer can assess the situation and help you to offset the costs of your medical bills and related damages. If you act quickly, you can find out about coverage for lost wages due to the slip and fall. Some slip and fall accidents occur on public property, like on city streets, while other accidents occur on private property like in a shopping mall. Each situation is going to be different. Your slip and fall case might have happened on the job, making the case linked to employee compensation. Whatever the circumstances, our experienced slip and fall attorneys in Boynton Beach understands local laws and statutes as well as state laws related to your rights. In situations like these involving a slip and fall, it really cannot hurt to consult with a lawyer and find out what you can do after experiencing an accident.
Spinal cord injuries can be life threatening, and usually alter a person’s life forever. Some spinal cord injuries may be caused by negligence. In some cases, you might have been involved in a car accident, or were injured on the job. Spinal cord injuries require months, if not years, of medical care and attention including countless hours of physical therapy. We know how hard it can be to recover from a spinal cord injury and are willing to do whatever it takes to alleviate your pain and suffering, as well as relieving the burden on your loved ones. You may be eligible for a lot more than you think. Never be afraid to call Demand the Limits and find out what the law can do to protect you, possibly covering any excess medical or therapy bills that your insurance stubbornly refuses to pay.
Brain Injury Lawyers
Like spinal cord injuries, brain injuries can be devastating and life changing. Even when the person recovers fully, there will always be lingering effects, not to mention the fear that the injury will lead to long-term cerebral or neurological damage. The brain injury sometimes changes the personality, and requires years of therapeutic interventions. Insurance companies are notoriously loathe to pay out, but you are probably entitled to a lot more than you think in cases like these. Car accidents, workplace accidents, or freak accidents can all cause brain injuries. When something bad happens, call an attorney immediately. Even though your first concern is with the person’s wellbeing, it is still important to get legal counsel now and have someone at your side. Often, the law does require that you act sooner rather than later to appeal denial of coverage or to file a lawsuit.
Truck Driving Accidents Lawyers
No matter what side you are on, a truck driving accident is usually going to be much more serious than an accident involving a standard motor vehicle. The sheer size and weight of the truck can cause far more damages to your person and to your vehicle than a regular automobile. If the truck was carrying a hazardous payload, then the results could be devastating. In some cases, might also be able to file with other parties who were also affected by the truck accident. Truck accidents are typically dealt with differently than accidents involving non-commercial vehicles because trucks and truck drivers are insured differently. You might be able to prove negligence on the part of the truck driver or the truck driver’s employer. For example, if the employer did not properly maintain the vehicle or did not adequately train the driver, then you might be able to prove negligence. Truck driving accidents can be legally complicated by additional factors such as whether or not the driver was an independent contractor or whether the driver was on call or not. Before jumping to conclusions about the situation and what your rights are, call an attorney now.
Wrongful Death Lawyers
If you have lost someone, our attorneys can help you through the grieving process in several ways. A lawyer can never bring a person back. If negligence, maleficence, or malpractice caused your loved one’s death, our wrongful death lawyers are on your side. Wrongful death refers to any situation in which a person or an organization can be found negligent or otherwise responsible, directly or indirectly. Some wrongful death cases are extensions of criminal cases, cases in which the victim’s family (you) are not getting treated properly in the criminal justice system. Often the criminal justice system proceedings take place completely separate from victims’ rights and restitutions, and in situations like these, it will pay to hire a wrongful death attorney in Boynton Beach.
Wrongful death can occur due to professional negligence. The most notorious of all wrongful death cases are those involving the healthcare system, such as medical malpractice or medication errors. Yet there are a lot of other situations in which professional negligence can lead to a wrongful death. Let’s say you rent a car and the rental company did not perform regular maintenance, causing your brakes to fail. You then drive that car and get into a deadly crash. Your family should sue the rental car agency for negligence.
Your employer could be negligent. If your employer knows that the cleaning solvents used in your workplace are hazardous and you get sick and die, your family has the right to sue for wrongful death. Wrongful death can unfortunately happen in a number of situations. The law is on your side.
Homeowner Insurance Claims Lawyers
Homeowners insurance is a must, but insurance companies are not charities. They do not have altruistic motives, and need to make money by denying coverage as much as possible. For this reason, homeowner insurance claims lawyers are absolutely necessary. When you experience damage that your insurance company refuses to cover for whatever reason, call an experienced homeowner insurance claims attorney in Boynton Beach. The attorney will help you understand your policy and ensure that you are paid whatever you deserve.
Driving under the influence (DUI) or boating under the influence (BUI) are serious charges. A DUI/BUI lawyer in Boynton Beach is above all not going to judge you. We are on your side at all times, to make sure that any DUI/BUI charge does not haunt you for the rest of your life or cause unnecessary damages to your, your business, or your family. Whether you were in the wrong or not, no matter what the circumstances of the situation were, call an attorney in Boynton Beach now. An attorney will give you the best possible legal advice to help you face whatever charges have been placed against you.
Many people in Florida are unaware of the law, and assume that whatever the officer says is true. Always call an attorney. You might not have been stopped for reasonable or probable cause. Your so-called sobriety test might be rendered invalid. You might want to know if it is within your rights to refuse a sobriety test, like a Breathalyzer, or you might simply want to know what your sentencing options are and how to serve the least invasive penalty. A DUI/BUI attorney is here to help you during this incredibly stressful time.
Domestic Battery Lawyers
Domestic violence is a huge problem in our society, and one that is often swept under the rug. Law enforcement officers sometimes do not want to get involved in domestic violence cases, even though it is really their responsibility to intervene. An attorney can help you, whether you have been wrongfully accused of domestic battery or if you are the victim of domestic violence.
Drug Offenses Lawyers
Until drug prohibition ends, possession of even small amounts of controlled substances is still considered a serious offence. Being charged with a drug offence in Florida can potentially ruin your life if you do not get good legal counsel immediately. The laws are always changing, too, meaning that you may not know what your rights are, even if this is not your first offence. A lawyer is bound by a contract that ensures your privacy and confidentiality, and will not judge you for your crimes. Instead, your attorney will advocate on your behalf to ensure that either the charges get dropped entirely or that you serve the least invasive penalty possible. With the exception of those who are caught with small amounts of cannabis, people apprehended with controlled substances like cocaine, heroin, or ecstasy might even be charged with a felony offence. The arresting officer and the state attorney’s office may base the charges on circumstantial evidence like the alleged quantity found in your possession or presumed intent to distribute.
As terrible as it may seem to be charged with a drug offence in the state of Florida, you do have rights. You have the right to an attorney who can determine if the arrest was wrongfully made and if the charges are reasonable or spurious. An attorney helps you to reduce the charges laid against you, and in many cases also helps you to receive the most lenient sentences possible. Did you know what the substance was? Did you experience entrapment? Were you the victim of unlawful search and seizure? Do you hold a valid medical marijuana license in the State of Florida but were still apprehended by the police? Call an attorney now to find out what your rights are.
Like most states, Florida has a separate juvenile justice system. However, the laws and stipulations can be complicated. Delinquent behavior is often caused by sociological factors, such as having a chaotic home environment or being exposed to violence or trauma at a young age. With a lack of adequate caring, love, support, or supervision, a child could become prone to delinquent or even criminal behaviors. If a child you know in Boynton Beach has been caught for delinquent behavior, it is critical to consult with an attorney now. Your loved one needs and deserves the best care and legal counsel possible.
The goal of juvenile justice is, or at least should be, rehabilitative. That means that in most cases, the system is designed to offer treatment or alternative sentencing rather than incarceration. However, without an attorney your child could become caught up in the system, serving as a poster child, or could fall through the cracks of the justice system. An attorney will not let that happen, and will advocate on your child’s behalf to provide the proper assessments and appropriate and compassionate interventions. In very rare cases, a child’s case can be diverted to the adult justice system. Unfortunately, Florida does allow this to happen in extreme cases. If and when this does happen, you need an attorney as soon as possible. Alternative and least invasive sentencing options include community service, drug rehabilitation, victim restitution, probation, and other types of supervision.
What Does the Attorney Do?
Fighting for justice, an attorney is like a superhero. Like a superhero, an attorney often leads multiple lives. The work of an attorney can include grunt work, tedious poring over of insurance documents, police reports, or legal forms. Attorneys may need to visit the scene of an accident to try and understand what happened and why, interview any and all witnesses or stakeholders to locate your allies. Piecing together the details of your case, the attorney then collaborates with a team of experts to launch your best position: offensive, defensive, or both. With knowledge of local, state, and federal laws, the attorney comes up with several different strategies or possible plans of action. Then, the lawyer will listen to you and hear what your needs and interests are in the situation. Your relationship with the attorney is based on mutual respect.
Once we decide an appropriate course of action based on the facts of the case and the various options you have, the attorney assumes the role of advocate. Speaking on your behalf in sensitive and official scenarios, your lawyer may need to negotiate with other attorneys—such as those representing an insurance company, the State of Florida, a company or a private party. In some cases, you and your lawyer decide that your case is worth taking to trial. When you appear before a judge, the attorney advocates passionately on your behalf to convince the jury and judge to see your side of things. An attorney is bound by ethics and professional obligations that protect your privacy and confidentiality, which is why you can and should trust an attorney with all the facts of the case. The more honest and forthcoming you are with the attorney, the better the outcome will be for you and your family.
