These personal injury cases can be complicated, involving companies, employers, witnesses, insurance companies, etc., which is why having a legal team protecting your legal rights and looking out for your interests is so important in the event you’ve been seriously injured in an accident.
An accident can hit anyone at anytime. One minute you can be out for a drive and the next minute you can be struggling to walk or do the things that we all take for granted. As our legal team has learned, most accidents are caused by another person’s, companies or entities negligent act. And while the injury is unintentional, it doesn’t help the victim whose life has been turned upside down. Traumatic injury can leave a person unable to work or function and will often result in medical expenses that can overwhelm all but the wealthiest among us. When these accidents happen, it’s only fair that the victim receive compensation for their injury, lost wages, medical expenses and other damages.
Because accidents and serious injury leave people feeling as if they have no recourse, our West Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC wants to remind you that having an aggressive legal team defending your legal rights after an accident can be an important step to your recovery.
Our attorneys handle various types of accident incidents including:
West Palm Beach car accident – With so many people driving cars on the roads today it’s no wonder that accidents happen. And according to our West Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team, a significant number of these accident cases happen because another driver was negligent, careless or reckless. When another driver’s negligent act is responsible for injuring somebody, the victim is entitled to be fairly compensated.
West Palm Beach medical malpractice – It’s certainly not something that people want to dwell on, but the fact remains that doctors and medical professionals sometimes make mistakes that lead to a patient getting seriously injured or suffering a wrongful death. While these injuries are unintentional, it still doesn’t change the fact that another person’s life has been changed for the worse. When these accidents happen, a victim may be able to file a claim of medical malpractice against the offending physician. Our West Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team will review your case and advise you of your legal options.
West Palm Beach motorcycle accident – A motorcycle accident can be extremely traumatic because the motorcyclist and their passengers don’t have much protection. Serious injury and fatal injury is common in motorcycle accidents. And, like many other vehicular accidents, most motorcycle accidents are caused by negligence.
West Palm Beach truck accident – Commercial trucks are necessary in order to keep goods moving to our retail outlets, however, more trucks on our roads mean more serious truck accidents. Truck accidents can be especially devastating because a truck generally causes so much damage when they collide with another vehicle. In addition, because of their speed to weight ratio, big trucks can be very difficult to control and maneuver when traffic conditions quickly change. This can lead to traumatic collisions that result in serious injury or wrongful death to those in smaller vehicles.
West Palm Beach birth injury – You may not be aware, but minor birth injuries are quite common during childbirth. These injuries usually include pulled muscles or bruising and don’t require any extended medical treatment. However, serious birth injury such as cerebral palsy or brain injury, is generally caused by negligence, and can leave a child with disabilities they’ll carry with them the rest of their lives. Because medical malpractice often plays a role in serious birth injury cases, you may want to consult with our West Palm Beach Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC to find out what your legal options are if your child suffered a traumatic birth injury.
West Palm Beach brain injury – When a person’s head is struck or strikes an object with high impact force, the results can include a brain injury. While this brain injury might only be a minor concussion, it can include permanent neurological damage resulting in impairment. This type of traumatic injury is usually associated with a car accident, truck accident or sports-related accident, but can also happen in a medical malpractice scenario.
West Palm Beach spinal injury – Like a brain injury, a spinal injury is usually associated with vehicular accidents such as a car accident, bicycle accident, motorcycle accident, SUV rollover accident or ATV accident, but it can also be the result of a slip and fall accident. Spinal injury is often expensive to treat when the injury is serious and the victim may not fully recover from their injury.
West Palm Beach workers compensation claim – A workers compensation claim results when a worker is injured on the job. This injury can result from a construction accident or a mishap in the office. Regardless of where the accident happens, the victim is entitled to compensation so long as the injury occurred while they were performing their duties for their employer.
West Palm Beach slip and fall – Hollywood often portrays slip and fall accidents as humorous, but ask anyone who’s been seriously injured in such an accident and they’ll tell you that it’s no laughing matter. A person who slips on an icy sidewalk or wet floor can sustain serious head injury or back injury, and in severe cases, wrongful death. It’s up to the property owners to ensure the safety of people who utilize their properties, and when they fail to do so, they may be liable.
West Palm Beach wrongful death claim – When a person dies as the result of another person’s negligent act, it’s usually referred to as a wrongful death. Wrongful death can happen as the result of a car accident, work-related accident or as the result of medical malpractice. Families are often not prepared for a loss from a wrongful death incident, which is why having a West Palm Beach Injury Lawyer to help through this difficult time, can relieve some of the burden you’re carrying.
