Cases We Handle In West Palm Beach, FL
We are qualified to handle any type of personal injury case. Car accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases. Every year, careless drivers cause thousands of avoidable car accidents. This phenomenon is known as "distracted driving," and includes a variety of activities – texting, talking on the phone, reading, watching movies, eating and applying makeup are only a few examples. At the firm, we believe that drivers should be held responsible for their actions behind the wheel. Operating a motor vehicle while using a phone or trying to accomplish some other task is risky; not only is the driver in danger, but everyone else on the road, too. Distracted driving isn't the only cause personal injury accident on the road, though.
Our firm is ready to handle bike accidents,
truck accidents and
drunk driving accidents, too. In 2008, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that Florida State had the second-highest number of motorcycle-related fatalities in the country. According to the NHTSA, drunk driving plays a big role in
motorcycle accidents and fatalities. Because drinking affects an individual's balance and coordination, it is especially dangerous for motorcyclists to drink while operating their vehicles. Motorcycles are small, making it easier for distracted or tired drivers to hit them. Motorcycles have the same privileges on the road as other vehicles, but motorcyclists can be at a higher risk of personal injury than other drivers because they are less visible than larger vehicles.
The NHTSA is especially concerned for the safety of pedestrians. Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to accidents and injuries because they have nothing to protect them from careless drivers. A motorist could easily swerve off the road while adjusting the radio and hit an innocent bystander. At night, pedestrians are less visible, placing them at a higher risk of accident, injury and death. In 2009, the NHTSA reported that 4,092 pedestrians were killed. Although this number is somewhat lower than previous years, it is still imperative that drivers pay close attention to people on the side of the road. Pedestrian accidents make up about 12% of all traffic fatalities.
There are also many other types of scenarios that can led to injuries caused by the negligence of others. Some of those include dog bites and other
slip and fall accidents and injuries from dangerous and defective products (which are matters of
product liability). Some injuries are obtained in the
