West Palm Beach Attorneys Representing People in Personal Injury Lawsuits

Most people take measures to avoid harm in their daily lives, but even the safest individuals may not be able to avoid injuries if they are brought about by an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Under Florida law, people who recklessly cause accidents can be held accountable for any damages that ensue, however, and anyone injured in an accident should speak to an attorney regarding their right to seek recourse. If you suffered bodily harm in an accident caused by someone else’s negligent acts, the dedicated West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys of Winegar Law, P.A., can assist you in seeking any damages recoverable. We possess the knowledge and experience needed to help you set forth compelling arguments in your favor, and we will aggressively advocate on your behalf. Our attorneys have years of experience representing injured parties in lawsuits in West Palm Beach and Miami, and other cities throughout Florida.


Common Causes of Personal Injuries in Florida

Personal injuries can arise under a variety of circumstances, but some are more common than others. For example, car accidents frequently occur throughout Florida and often cause fractures, contusions, back injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. Truck accidents are a common cause of personal injuries as well, and due to the size and weight of the trucks involved, the injuries are typically catastrophic and, in many cases, fatal. Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents also regularly cause bodily harm and are usually brought about by debris or liquid on a floor, uneven flooring, or a sidewalk in disrepair. Defective products are another cause of injuries, often causing burns, lacerations, and other trauma. Other sources of harm include animal attacks, intentional acts such as assault, and medical malpractice.

Elements of a Personal Injury Lawsuit

As the majority of accidents that cause bodily harm arise from reckless acts, most lawsuits seeking compensation for personal injuries argue that the defendant was negligent. A plaintiff asserting a defendant should be held liable under a theory of negligence must prove each element of negligence to recover damages. Specifically, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care that is identifiable under the law and that the defendant engaged in conduct that constitutes a breach of the duty. The plaintiff must also establish that the defendant’s breach was a substantial factor in bringing about the accident that caused the plaintiff harm, and that the plaintiff sustained actual damages.

A plaintiff that successfully proves a defendant is liable for their harm may be able to recover compensation for the cost of medical treatment for injuries caused by the defendant’s negligence, and treatment they may need in the future. Typically, this includes hospitalization, surgeries, prescriptions, physical and occupational therapy, and assistive devices. A plaintiff may also be awarded damages for a loss of earning capacity and future loss of earnings if their injuries diminished their ability to work. If the plaintiff was married when the plaintiff suffered harm, their spouse might be able to recover the loss of consortium damages as well. It is important to note that any lawsuit seeking damages for personal injuries must be filed within four years of the date of harm in most cases. Thus, it is prudent for anyone who wishes to pursue claims for compensation to act promptly to avoid waiving the right to recover damages.
