What Is A West Palm Beach Personal Injury Law Case?
Personal injury is a legal term used to describe an injury to your body, mind and/or emotions as opposed to an injury to your property. Personal injury cases can be filed when one party believes that an accident that resulted in an injury was caused by another person’s actions or failure to act. If the accused person is at fault, he or she can be compelled by the court to pay compensation for the injured individual’s damages.

What is Negligence and Why is it Important?
Negligence is a term used to describe a range of actions that include distracted driving, texting, and even drinking and driving. Negligence is any action that drivers take knowing that it could endanger not only themselves but others on the road. Those who are negligent can be required to pay an injured party compensation for their damages. If you have been injured, do not attempt to settle or negotiate your claim on your own. Instead, seek help from one of our personal injury attorneys.
Can Brian Help Me With an Alcohol-Related Injury Case?
Vehicle accident personal injury cases are common. A leading contributor to many of these accidents is alcohol. Statistics show that in 2012 in Florida there were 9867 confirmed alcohol-related accidents. These 9867 accidents resulted in 805 fatalities and 7910 injuries. Though alcohol-involved accidents are tragic and avoidable, they may also involve negligence from a personal injury standpoint that can result in compensation for the victims. If the individual who caused the accident did so due to drinking and driving, the driver may have been acting in a negligent way. This makes it far more likely the insurance company will negotiate fairly. If not, there should be enough compelling evidence to prove to the court that the driver was acting negligently.
Does Personal Injury Only Apply to Drivers and Passengers?
Even if you are not driving or riding in a vehicle but are involved in an accident, you may still be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Because the road is shared with a number of users, such as pedestrians, drivers and bicyclists, anyone can be involved in an accident and receive injuries. Those who are driving vehicles are responsible for not hitting a pedestrian or bicyclist, but accidents of this type occur every day.
In Florida in 2012, 7413 pedestrians were injured by drivers while another 473 were killed. That same year in Florida, 6058 bicyclists were hurt in injury accidents while 116 were killed. When a vehicle hits a pedestrian or bicyclist, the chances of the victim being injured or killed are exponentially higher than those in the relative safety of a vehicle. The law allows both pedestrians and bicyclists the option of pursuing a personal injury case if involved in an accident.
