Being injured in an auto accident in Florida can change your life in an instant, leading to expensive medical bills, lost wages and disability. At Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, LLP, we understand the gravity of this situation and can help you maximize your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve. Whether your accident involved a commercial truck, motorcycle or passenger vehicle, our West Palm Beach firm is equipped to effectively handle the case.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident involving another driver’s negligence, you may have a right to seek compensation. Florida follows a no-fault insurance system for traffic accidents. Under this system, a car accident victim’s own insurance policy will usually be responsible for covering any losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, or property related to the accident. However, if your injuries are severe, you may qualify to file a liability claim against the driver who caused the accident. To do this successfully, you must show that your injuries resulted in permanent disability or disfigurement. Our firm can help you determine whether you have a valid claim and guide you through the necessary steps to pursue compensation.
Trucks are much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles. As a result, they are capable of causing catastrophic damage in a crash. As with a car accident, you can file a liability claim if your injuries are severe. Trucking companies and their drivers are governed by federal regulations aimed at making their large commercial vehicles safer, so we can investigate whether violations in driver rest periods, weight loads or truck maintenance led to your accident, and we will hold all responsible parties accountable. Our firm has represented countless clients who have been injured in truck accidents, and we will put this experience to work in your case.
In Florida, motorcyclists have the same rights as drivers of any other vehicle. However, in many cases, motorcycle accidents occur because another driver failed to take notice of the motorcycle on the road, leaving the unprotected rider open to serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries. Like other traffic accidents, motorcycle accidents often fall under Florida’s no-fault insurance law, but if your injuries are severe enough, in cases such as those involving traumatic brain injury, organ damage, or paralysis, our firm will help you file a liability claim seeking the compensation that fully accounts for your medical expenses, lost wages and future treatment.
You only have a limited time period to file a personal injury claim following an auto accident, so it is important to take action quickly. Call Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, LLP today at 561-295-1480 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation at our West Palm Beach office.
