Across the United States, accidents of all types occur every day, causing serious injuries and, in the worst cases, even death. Although sometimes these injuries are truly the result of an accident, which no one could prevent, more often than not, someone’s actions caused you serious harm. When another person injures you or a loved one, you deserve justice, and you may be entitled to significant compensation for your pain.

In order to prevent serious accidents, everyone has the responsibility to act in a way that does not create unnecessary risks or hazards for others. Unfortunately, many people do not take this duty to others seriously, and they engage in reckless, negligent, or careless behavior. When someone is acting without thinking about others, they put you and your loved ones in danger.

Even when you take all the necessary precautions to protect your safety, you cannot always predict or avoid the dangerous actions of other people. However, when the unthinkable occurs, and you experience a serious injury, you should not be held financially responsible for another person’s poor decisions.

Although no one can take away the pain you are experiencing, you can take action against the individual who hurt you, and the West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, Overbeck & Baxter P.A. are ready to help. We have experience with a variety of personal injury cases, and we are prepared to fight for you, no matter the circumstances of your injury.

Understanding Personal Injury Lawsuits

The American Bar Association defines personal injury as any injury which occurs as the result of another person’s actions or failure to act. Although this definition is broad, the goal is to protect you during any situation in which another person hurts you.

Although every personal injury case is different, negligence is one of the most common ways that a person may cause you serious harm. Negligence is defined as a failure to take reasonable actions to prevent an accident from happening. Some examples of negligence may include an employee who fails to clean up a spill, which makes the floor slippery, or a doctor who does not order sufficient testing before giving a diagnosis.

Another common cause of personal injuries is recklessness, which is a complete disregard for the harm that one’s actions may cause. Examples of reckless behavior include drinking and driving, street racing, and operating machinery without proper training.

No matter whether the person who caused your accident was reckless or negligent, the attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, Overbeck & Baxter P.A. are ready to help you seek justice. A personal injury lawsuit can help you protect your financial future and ensure that this injury does not derail your life.

The birth of your baby should be a joyous and exciting event, but birth injuries can cause your infant unnecessary suffering, extended hospital stays, and lifelong issues that can be worrisome for new parents.

Birth Injuries
premises-liability-img

Injury accidents can happen anywhere, and at any time. All of us, including property owners and managers, have a legal obligation (known as a duty of care) to take reasonable steps to prevent others from suffering harm.

Premises Liability
product-liability-img

Product designers, manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and advertisers all play a role in delivering a product into the hands of a consumer, and all of these parties bear responsibility in ensuring that the product is safe for use.

Product Liability
dogbite

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury from a dog bite because of an owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Dog Bites

If you have experienced a personal injury under any of these circumstances, you have the right to seek compensation. However, you need to act quickly, so you can file your lawsuit before you reach the statute of limitations for your case.

The statute of limitations is a date after which your case is no longer valid in court. This time frame varies depending on the type of accident you have and the person or group you are filing a lawsuit against. In the state of Florida, you have at most four years to file a lawsuit for your personal injury case. However, you need to discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible, so you understand these time limits based on your individual circumstances.

POSSIBLE COMPENSATION AFTER AN INJURY

Serious injuries often come with extensive medical intervention and ongoing care, even years after the injury occurs. Medical treatment is extremely expensive, but you should never have to sacrifice the care that you need or the support your family deserves because of your financial circumstances.

When another person injures you, they are the ones who should pay your medical bills and cover any additional expenses from this accident. A personal injury lawsuit can help ensure that this individual takes responsibility for their behavior and that you do not suffer financial ruin as a result of another person’s reprehensible actions. The settlement you receive from your personal injury lawsuit may help cover expenses including, but not limited to:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Surgery and hospitalization
  • Medication and assistive medical devices
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation services
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement
  • Psychological counseling
  • Partial or total disability
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future income

The compensation you receive from your personal injury lawsuit can protect you and your loved ones from financial ruin. You need to discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible, so you understand the amount of compensation that is appropriate for your pain. This injury has changed your life significantly, but with the help of a lawyer, it will not dictate your financial security or your future.

Client Reviews

Comilla Image

Hank and company were excellent to work with. They went to bat for me and settled my case in under a year. Recommended me to some of the best doctors to get my injuries sustained in my accident taken care of to the best of their ability. Also negotiated their medical bills down substantially from full price to make my net settlement fair to me in the end. Would highly recommend these guys to anyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

That depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries, the expenses related to those injuries, the amount of pain and suffering caused by your injuries, and whether the defendant was entirely or partially responsible for your injuries. You can get financial compensation for the overall costs of your injury, and that doesn’t just include medical bills. Injuries tend to impact every area of your life, so you may be able to get monetary recompense for lost work wages and lifestyle changes. All in all, there’s no way to know precisely how much you could recover from your personal injury case without speaking with a skilled legal professional about the specifics of your

To cover the current and future costs of your injury. Many people assume that pursuing a personal injury case will take too much time and energy to be worth it even if they achieve a legal victory. They don’t want to get tied up in court or get saddled with expensive legal fees. Even individuals with a clear-cut case avoid even speaking with a personal injury lawyer. Tragically, many of these people miss out on substantial financial compensation and wind up in debt, paying for medical bills and losing out on wages from work that could have been covered by the responsible party. The fact is that many personal injury cases are settled in a timely fashion and out of court. An ethical personal injury lawyer with integrity can communicate openly and honestly with you about your particular case, letting you know in advance what you should expect.

Our personal injury attorneys are committed to getting our clients the maximum amount of monetary recompense possible. We prioritize clear, open communication to make the entire legal process as easy as possible for the people we serve. When it comes to representing you, we have all the skills, knowledge, and experience required. We also have a stellar record of success to back us up. For example, we secured $20,000,000 for a young woman who suffered a brain injury in an automotive accident. We also won a $9,000,000 settlement for our client when a poorly-installed tire contributed to an injury-causing crash. Those are just a few items from our extensive list of legal victories. So many of our clients are able to cover most or all of the costs of their injuries because we are ready and willing to fight to protect their best interests.
