Car, Truck, and Other Motor Vehicle Accidents
Thousands of vehicles travel Boca Raton’s roads daily, some of which will, unfortunately, end up in an accident. Vehicle accidents typically mean high medical bills, missed work, and other losses that can quickly hurt victims’ ability to care for themselves and stay on top of their bills.
We help car accident victims file personal injury protection (PIP) claims with their insurers, which is where they must turn to first for benefits that can help them with accident losses. Sometimes, these benefits fall short of covering their expenses. When this happens, they might be able to demand compensation from the at-fault party in the accident to ease the financial gap.
If you or a loved one is in this position, our Boca Raton car accident attorneys can review the accident and advise you further.
Premises Liability and Slip and Fall Claims in Boca Raton
When you visit a Boca Raton restaurant, mall, public park, or even someone’s personal property, you expect the premises to be a safe place you can visit. Property owners must manage their grounds and promptly remove any hazards or potential hazards that could endanger visitors or guests.
If you suffer a slip and fall or another injury on a property, you could recover compensation if you prove an owner’s or other entity’s negligence caused it. In addition, we can review the incident and advise you on your possible recovery options.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Some people suffer fatal accidents in Boca Raton, whether another person or entity’s actions were negligent or intentional. When this happens, surviving family members could file a wrongful death lawsuit to compensate for losses surrounding their loved one’s death.
Relatives who receive financial recovery can use the money to pay the decedent’s final medical expenses and their funeral and burial costs. Our Boca Raton wrongful death lawyers can explain how these legal actions work in Florida and the laws that govern them.
PIP Claims in Boca Raton
Florida, a no-fault insurance state, requires everyone with a registered motor vehicle with four or more wheels to carry personal injury protection (PIP) that can cover injuries they suffered in a traffic accident. This is the case no matter who was at fault for the crash. Although this coverage is beneficial, it does not always completely cover someone’s injuries.
PIP policy limits do not extend past $10,000, which may not be enough to cover all your accident costs. When these policies fall short, accident victims must pay the difference or sue the liable party for the money they need. Insurance companies can also make it difficult for individuals to receive the benefits that can help them meet their expenses.
Our Boca attorneys handle these injury cases regularly and know how the process works. We can communicate with the insurance company and seek the fair benefits you need to recover from the accident.
Boca Raton Auto Glass Claims
Florida’s windshield replacement law (Florida Statutes § 627.7288) allows registered vehicle owners with comprehensive coverage to have their insurance deductible waived if their windshield must be repaired or replaced for cracks and/or other defects.
While this windshield repair is free for the vehicle owner under this law, it could cost those who do the repairs. We help repair shops seek payment from insurance companies, as they may face challenges when receiving pay for the windshield repairs they perform. If you have an auto glass claim in Boca Raton, call us to learn what legal options you have for recovering payment.
Property Damage Claims in Boca Raton
If you own a home, business, or any property on which you have insurance, you could run into challenges when making an insurance claim for any damages suffered. Insurers can devalue your losses or deny your claims, making it harder to get the fair settlement you need.
Our Boca Raton attorneys handling property damage claims can review your policy and your insurer’s reasons for denying your claim. We can advise you on what to do and how we might be able to help you seek recovery for fair compensation.
Defective Products/Mass Tort Cases
When you buy a product, you expect it to work and not harm you when you use it. Products placed on store shelves sometimes turn out to be defective because of how they were made, designed, or labeled, among other reasons.
Some consumers do not realize the dangers of using a product until an accident occurs. If this happened to you or a loved one, you can hold the liable parties accountable for your injuries, and our Boca defective products lawyers can help.
We can fight for your compensation via a product liability lawsuit or a mass tort lawsuit after you were harmed by a dangerous or defective product. You can call us and explore your legal options today.

Mortuary Law in Boca Raton
The death of a loved one is a sensitive time as family members grieve and cope with their loss.
