In a West Palm Beach Auto Accident? You Deserve Legal Assistance
Many of us in West Palm Beach use cars to commute to work every day. We drive when we run errands, pick up our kids, or go down to the beach on a nice weekend. In a sprawling city like ours, driving is almost a necessity. And when we do something like driving every day, we usually don’t think about the fact that it could result in an injury.
Unfortunately, car accidents happen on a daily basis in the West Palm Beach area. A driver who is looking at their cell phone may fail to see a stop sign and collide with you at an intersection, or a drunk driver might drift across the center lane towards you. In some cases, drivers may even get into accidents because the city has posted misleading signage or failed to warn drivers about a rough patch of road.
If you’re in a motor vehicle accident, it can have a dramatic impact on the rest of your life. The first thing you need to do is get medical attention and focus on recovering. However, once you’ve received the appropriate medical treatment, you owe it to yourself to contact a West Palm Beach auto accident attorney. The lawyers at Slootsky, Perez & Braxton can help you fight for the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses and move forward with your life.
Why Should You Retain an Auto Accident Lawyer?
In many cases, you simply can’t afford not to retain a skilled car accident attorney. Some common injuries that auto accident victims suffer include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burns and lacerations
- Head and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Other internal injuries
These types of injuries can result in a costly stay at the hospital and may take a significant amount of time to heal. You may find yourself grappling with:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages while you were recovering
- Loss of future income if you are unable to return to work
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
Don’t let the financial and emotional burden of a car accident defeat you. When you’ve been injured by a negligent or reckless driver, you need to contact Slootsky, Perez & Braxton.
Why Should You Work with Slootsky, Perez & Braxton?
After being injured in a West Palm Beach car accident, you might think to yourself, “My insurance will cover the cost of my injuries.” It would be nice if that was always the case, but in reality you may find that your insurance company claims that your injuries “aren’t that serious.” To make matters worse, under Florida’s personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, you have a very short window of time to file a claim and seek medical attention. If your treatment is diagnosed as a non-emergency, the maximum payment you can get through PIP is $2,500—an amount that falls short for many auto accident victims.
In some cases, you may even be in an accident with another driver who claims that they weren’t at fault, even though it seems clear to you that they were. And if you have the misfortune of getting into an accident caused by a commercial truck driver, you’ll likely find that the trucking company is prepared to fight hard in order to avoid paying out.
