Palm Beach Personal Injury Lawyer
At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC, our Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team works hand in hand with people who’ve suffered traumatic injuries as the result of a tragic accident. Because these accidents strike when people least expect them, and are ill-prepared to deal with them, it’s easy for people to become overwhelmed by the aftermath. Victims and their families will face many struggles as they deal with recovery, medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering that are commonplace in serious injury cases.
Our Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC aggressively defends and protects the rights of accident victims while helping them deal with the legal aspects of their cases. Our team has successfully worked in both Palm Beach’s state and federal courts and is familiar with how judges in these courts can differ in their interpretations of the same laws.
In many serious injury cases, the victim will require extensive medical treatment over a long period of time. In addition, many victims may never fully recover from their injuries and may even be precluded from going back to work or enjoying the standard of living they were accustomed to prior to their injury. Our Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team says that most accidents are caused by a reckless or negligent act on the part of another entity, and because of this fact, victims are, by law, entitled to receive fair compensation for their injuries.
Our legal team has aggressively pursued justice for victims of numerous accidents, including:
Palm Beach brain injury – Brain injury typically results from blunt force trauma to the head, but can also be the result of medical malpractice. Additionally, brain injury can be something as mild as a concussion or much more severe, involving permanent brain damage.
Palm Beach slip and fall – A slip and fall accident is common and can result in serious head injury, back injury or broken bones. When a property owner fails to maintain safety, thus leading to an accident, they can be held liable for the injury. Our Palm Beach Injury Lawyer will be able to tell you whether your accident case has a liability component and then will work to defend your legal rights.
Palm Beach car accident – American’s depend on our vehicles everyday, and with so many cars on our roads, accidents are inevitable. Our Palm Beach injury lawyer team says that, in most cases, car accidents are the result of an act of negligence – usually on the part of another driver. Whether it’s a DUI case or a case of disregard for traffic laws, negligence behind the wheel can lead to a serious injury or wrongful death.
Palm Beach medical malpractice – When we go to the doctor, or go in for any type of medical treatment, we expect to be made well, and that’s usually what happens. However, there are times when a mistake is made that leads to a person getting seriously injured or suffering a wrongful death at the hands of those who are meant to heal. These incidents are almost always unintentional, but that doesn’t mean that the victim isn’t entitled to compensation for their injury. If you believe that your injury was due to an act of negligence on the part of a doctor, surgeon, nurse, pharmacist or other medical person, contact our Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team to find out if you’re entitled to compensation.
Palm Beach motorcycle accident – Like cars, Americans have a love affair with their motorcycles, and truth be told, they can be great fun to ride. However, because riders lack the same level of protection that other motorists enjoy, they often get the worst of it when accidents happen. Motorcycle accidents rank highly when it comes to serious and fatal injuries. In many cases, motorcycle accidents happen because another motorist failed to notice the motorcycle on the road. This is an act of negligence and may entitle the motorcyclist to compensation.
Palm Beach truck accident – Commercial trucks, such as 18-wheelers and tractor trailers, play an important role in getting products into our stores – they’re essentially the backbone of our retail economy. However, accidents involving large commercial trucks can be particularly devastating when regular passenger vehicles are involved. Trucks carry a lot of weight at high speeds, which translates to significant damage and serious injury when they collide with cars or motorcycles.
Palm Beach birth injury – A birth injury is a common occurrence in most pregnancies, but these birth injuries are generally minor and don’t require long-term medical treatment. However, there are times when a birth injury results in permanent damage and/or disability. Cerebral palsy, brain damage and nerve damage are typical serious birth injuries, and according to our Palm Beach injury lawyer, are often caused by medical malpractice. A negligent OB-GYN or medical team may be liable for your child’s birth injury. Our legal team can investigate your case to determine fault and recommend a course of action.
Palm Beach spinal injury – A spinal injury can be extremely serious and may even lead to permanent paralysis. Spinal injuries typically result from car accidents, truck accidents, SUV accidents and slip and fall accidents. Spinal injuries can take months or even years to recover from, and some people never fully recover from their spinal injury. In addition, spinal injuries can be very costly to treat over a long period of time.
Palm Beach workers compensation – An injury on the job can strike almost any person regardless of what field they’re in. Whether their injury happens in a crane accident on a construction site or in a trip and fall accident in an office, the law says that the victim is entitled to compensation. When employers fail to honor the law, the legal system may be required. Our Palm Beach injury lawyer team can investigate the nature of the accident to determine if your employer was negligent and then advise you as to what legal options are available
Palm Beach wrongful death – A wrongful death means that a person has died as the result of an accident. Wrongful death is unintentional and it often hits families much harder than death due to illness because they aren’t prepared for the loss. Wrongful death almost always has a liability element to it, and our Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team can determine who’s at fault and help you to collect fair compensation for your loss.
In addition to these accident cases, our legal team has successfully worked with victims injured in boat accident cases, dog bite cases, defective product cases, train accident cases, and others. While a traumatic injury that happens in an accident can be a heavy and overwhelming burden, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to face it alone. Our legal team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC can help aid your recovery by dealing with insurance companies as well as all the legal aspects of your accident so that you can focus on putting your life back together.
