    What Can We Do to Help?

    As an accident victim, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation. Many accident victims don’t realize the scope of their losses until it’s too late. As a result, they bear the financial burdens of someone else’s mistake. These costs often go on for years and, in many cases, for the rest of the victims’ lives. We want to make sure this doesn’t happen to you, and if necessary, we can act quickly to protect your legal rights.

    Brian D. Guralnick Injury Lawyers handle the following types of cases for our Boynton Beach clients, among others:

    Bicycle Accidents

    Bicycle accidents are frequently severe because bicycles lack the frame protection a car provides. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that Florida’s bicycle accident death rate is more than double the national average. Statewide, over 7,000 people were injured in 2015. Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include failure to yield, opening car doors into traffic, failure to check blind spots, distracted driving, and intoxicated driving. Winners of bicycle accident lawsuits are entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, pain, suffering, and other losses.

    Boating Accidents

    Boating accidents are more common than most people think. They can be caused by various factors, including speeding, DUI, inadequate maintenance, ignoring wake warnings, horseplay, and dock injuries. Luxury cruise ships, by contrast, carry dangers all their own, including falling overboard, slip and fall accidents, and food poisoning. Jet skis present specific hazards of their own. Any of these accidents can form the basis for a personal injury lawsuit if negligence or other culpable conduct is involved, and a cruise ship company is almost always in a financial position to pay a significant damages award.

    Car Accidents

    Florida suffers 200,000 injuries yearly from car accidents – one percent of the state’s total population. Of course, some accidents are no one’s fault, some are the victim’s fault, and some are compensated for under Florida’s “no-fault” system. Nevertheless, a severe road accident caused by a negligent party’s misconduct (whether a driver, pedestrian, or passenger) serves as the basis for a lawsuit. Our Boynton Beach personal injury lawyers enjoy decades of experience in road accident lawsuits and employ time-tested litigation strategies to secure maximum damages for their clients.

    Motorcycle Accidents

    Motorcycling is a temptation that many find hard to resist. Unfortunately, its dangers are worth considering – the combination of powerful acceleration, zero frame protection, and low visibility frequently results in devastating accidents, especially when driving in an automobile’s blind spot. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can be severe – head injuries, paralysis, neck injuries, and broken bones occur far more frequently than in car accidents. A quick but inadequate settlement is not what you need in the long run when a severe accident occurs. Instead, you should retain the services of a top-notch personal injury lawyer.

    Pedestrian Accidents

    Florida has the dubious distinction of the third-highest pedestrian accident rate in the United States – 9,000 such accidents occur annually, including hundreds of cases in Palm Beach County. The most common reasons for pedestrian accidents are failure to yield, distracted driving, DUI, turning into a crosswalk, and backing into a pedestrian. Extensive damages awards are typical for seriously injured pedestrians who choose the right law firm. Our Boynton Beach pedestrian accident lawyers possess decades of combined experience in personal injury law, and we will not rest until you receive fair compensation.

    Premises Liability

    Florida law requires property owners and renters to take steps to ensure the safety of people who enter their property, including retail customers, social invitees, and in some cases, trespassers. Many accidents invoke premises liability law, including slip and fall accidents, violent assaults by third parties, and even dog attacks. The rights that protect the injured victim depend on the legal classification – invitee, licensee, or trespasser. You might even be able to sue both landlord and tenant for a dog bite injury.

    Slip and Fall Accidents

    Slip and fall accidents are perhaps the most common types of serious personal injury – a million such accidents per year are severe enough to require an emergency room visit, and elderly victims tend to suffer the most serious injuries. Slip and fall accidents can happen for various reasons: Broken stairs, faulty handrails, defective escalators, slippery floors, and icy pavements are just a few of the defective conditions that can support a personal injury lawsuit. Proving liability in a slip-and-fall case can be complex, and an investigation by a top personal injury lawyer could be critical.

    Truck Accidents

    An 18-wheeler truck is a guided missile that can crush a car, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian, and even smaller trucks can cause devastating damage. Palm Beach County suffered well over 2,000 commercial vehicle accidents in 2015, including trucks. Common causes of truck accidents include texting while driving, using a two-way radio, driver fatigue, following too closely, overloading, hydroplaning, jackknifing, and DUI. If the truck driver served as a formal employee (rather than an independent contractor) of the trucking company, the company could be held liable for damages.

    Wrongful Death

    A wrongful death lawsuit is how the personal representative of the estate of a deceased accident victim secures compensation for both the victim’s probate estate and close relatives or dependents affected by the death. A wrongful death lawsuit can only be filed by the personal representative of the victim’s estate. However, depending on the nature of the losses, some or all damages can go directly to relatives. Damages can include funeral expenses, unpaid medical bills, loss of financial support by dependants, loss of the victim’s earning capacity, loss of companionship and guidance, and psychological suffering (if the victim was a child).

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Do I need money upfront to fund a lawsuit?

    No. The Boyton Beach attorneys at Brian D. Guralnick Injury Lawyers work on a “no win, no pay” system regarding personal injury lawsuits. This means that the firm will waive your legal fees entirely if you fail to receive any compensation. We will be entitled to a percentage of your recovery if you receive compensation by settlement agreement or courtroom verdict.

    In this way, we ensure that we are just as interested in a large verdict or settlement as you are – the more money you make, the more money we make. We have that much confidence in our ability to win. After all, if we lost most of our cases, we would be working for nothing, and we indeed would have abandoned the “no win, no pay” system long ago.

    How long will my case take?

    How long a case will take is quite a difficult question to answer. Florida imposes no absolute time limit on lawsuits. Some cases drag on and on, while others are resolved relatively quickly. In addition, most personal injury cases are settled out of court, sometimes during a pending lawsuit.

    A general rule of thumb is that the more money you ask for, the longer it will likely take to reach a verdict or settlement. Another factor affecting the length of your case is its complexity. For example, a car accident lawsuit against the employer of a drunken commercial vehicle driver who was arrested for DUI at the scene of the crash is likely to be concluded faster than a product liability lawsuit involving complex technical issues requiring extensive expert testimony.

    In general, you should expect to wait at least several months and possibly several years before receiving compensation.

    What kinds of questions will I be asked during a deposition?

    A deposition is an out-of-court event during which you answer questions under oath so that the opposing party can gather evidence for trial. The judge will not be present, but a court reporter will make an official transcript of the proceedings. Your answers to questions that conform to the rules of evidence can be used against you at trial.

    Common questions include:

    • Have you been involved in any lawsuits before?
    • Did you file an insurance claim concerning your injuries?
    • How has your injury affected your daily life?
    • Can you rate your degree of pain from 1 to 10?
    • Exactly what time did the accident occur?

    Since some of these questions will be designed to trip you up, we will be around to protect you – and we’ve seen all the tricks before.

    How does the statute of limitations work?

    Florida has enacted two statutes of limitations relevant to car accident lawsuits – the personal injury statute of limitations (for non-fatal accidents) and the wrongful death statute of limitations (for fatal accidents). Although both run for four years, they are triggered by two different events – the personal injury statute of limitations deadline expires on the fourth anniversary of the accident, while the wrongful death statute of limitations expires on the fourth anniversary of the death of the victim.

    You beat this deadline by filing a lawsuit before the deadline expires. Although the court may reject your filing if you are missing critical documents or if you haven’t paid the filing fee, once the court accepts the case for docketing, you have beaten the deadline no matter how long your case takes to resolve ultimately. Subject to narrow exceptions; however, your claim will die if you miss the deadline.
