Auto Accident Injuries
Car accidents are a common occurrence on the streets of West Palm Beach, because of how busy our roads can be.
According to crash statistics at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 395,841 automobile collisions in 2016 and 165,953 injuries as a result. Though auto accidents and injuries can occur just about anywhere in Florida, they often occur on surface streets, on interstate I-95, and on Florida’s Turnpike.
Vehicle crash cases often occur as a result of:
– Drunk Driving
– Drug Impaired Driving
– Tired Driving
– Distracted Driving
– Reckless Driving
– Breaking Traffic Laws

When an injury does occur, you may have to contend with repeating hospital and doctor visits, ever increasing medical and automobile expenses.

Liability & Damage Recovery
It is the responsibility of any motor vehicle operator to conduct themselves safely, so that they do not endanger other drivers on the road. If that duty is ignored, other drivers can be harmed due to the negligent conduct of another. The driver at fault is then liable for bodily injury and any vehicle damage that takes place as a result of their negligence. If you have been hurt in a car accident, the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. may be able to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. Motor vehicle accident personal injury compensation may include:
– Vehicle Damages
– Property Damages
– Hospital and Other Medical Bills
– Lost Wages
– Pain and Suffering
– Costs of Future Care
Don’t rely on the insurance company to inform you. Insurance agents and adjusters work on behalf of the insurance company and are not seeking what is best for their injured clients. It is crucial that you never agree to or accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first speaking with an experienced auto accident personal injury attorney.
