This is not an all-inclusive list of the Delray Beach personal injury cases we handle.
You have to prove that the other party caused your injury to have a successful personal injury claim in Delray Beach. First, you have to show that the other party owed you a duty of care and breached it. For example, Florida motorists have a duty of care to follow the rules of the road. That includes stopping at red lights. If a driver runs a red light, he or she has breached the duty of care. That breach put you and other motorists at risk.
Finally, you must prove that by breaching the duty of care, the other party caused your injuries. Using the previous example, if a driver runs a red light, hits your car, and breaks your leg, you can prove causation. By running the red light, the driver caused an accident. The accident resulted in a broken leg. This is a straightforward example, but personal injury cases are generally much more complicated. That’s why it’s vital to hire a South Florida personal injury attorney.
Through our years of practice, our team at Dyson Law PLLC has been able to secure outstanding results for many individuals and families who have suffered harm as a result of negligent and wrongful conduct.
You might be hesitant to file a personal injury claim because you were partially responsible for the accident. However, Florida follows the rule of pure comparative negligence. That means that you can recover damages, even if you were 99 percent at fault.
For example, assume you are in a car accident with another driver. The other driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident, and you were speeding. The jury might find that both of you contributed to the accident. However, you can still sue and recover damages due to the law of pure comparative negligence.
There is not an exact formula for calculating the value of a Delray Beach personal injury claim. However, four main components impact the value of the claim. First, the severity of the injury will help determine how much your claim is worth. Second, your attorney will consider the cost of medical treatment and medications. Third, your attorney will evaluate the physical and emotional distress the accident caused. Fourth, any disturbances to your daily life will impact the value of your claim. This includes any missed work you’ve experienced as a result of the accident and injury.
Most Delray Beach personal injury cases are settled out of court. Dyson Law PLLC negotiates with insurance companies to receive a fair settlement for clients. However, there are times when the insurance company will not provide a fair settlement. When that happens, Dyson Law PLLC litigates the case in court. You will review your options to determine if you want to accept the settlement or if you prefer to go to court. If you decide to go to court, you must first go through mediation. This will give you another chance to settle the case before the trial.
