Personal Injury During Car Accidents

Drinking and driving is one of the most dangerous, reckless things a person can do behind the wheel. No one deserves to be an accident that had no fault in, that is why West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, and Overbeck, P.A. fight to get the victims the compensation they deserve, such as nearly four million dollars in a drunk driving settlement in one case alone. They have the knowledge and experience to take care of your personal injury claim. The negligent party or parties can owe the victim compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage from the accident
  • Emotional trauma
  • Permanent injuries sustained in accident
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Besides intoxication, car accidents may happen for a number of reasons, such as improper turns, disregard for traffic signs and laws, and failure to adjust to weather conditions. Perhaps both parties in the accident were negligent to some extent that does not mean that Party A has absolutely no claim over Party B. Because of comparative negligence, if Party A calls a personal injury attorney to examine their case, they may still have grounds to file a lawsuit demanding compensation for their pain and suffering in the accident.

These cases may get complicated, so calling an experienced attorney to help determine whether the one party was more negligent than the other is a smart choice. The party must call their attorney in time though, since states such as Florida follow a statute of limitations of up to four years for personal injury claims.

If the party fails to record and file their claim within the mandated four years, they forfeit all hopes for and justice rights to compensation.
