If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a West Palm Beach crash, you could pursue financial compensation based on the at-fault driver’s auto insurance coverage, your own uninsured motorist policy, or a civil lawsuit. This could allow you to recover money for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other costs.

Our West Palm Beach Car Crash Lawyers Fight for These Damages
As noted, following your motor vehicle collision, you could seek damages beyond your no-fault insurance coverage. Here, you could recover expenses and losses not paid by your personal injury protection (PIP) policy. In a fault-based insurance claim or lawsuit, the liable party might need to pay for these types of damages:
- Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life
- Medical expenses, including future care and support costs for lasting injuries
- Income losses to date and reduced ability to work and earn in the future
- Property damage costs, such as car repair or replacement expenses
- Miscellaneous expenses with receipts
- Punitive damages (if applicable)
Our wrongful death attorneys advocate for grieving families. If your loved one passed away in a West Palm Beach crash, Florida law allows their personal representative to hold the liable parties responsible. The estate executive (executor of their will) could recover a fair settlement for survivors.
We’ve Recovered Millions for Car Accident Clients
Our recent case results include several notable car accident payouts:
- $1,400,000 for a doctor who suffered serious injuries in a crash
- $1,000,000 for the victim of a T-bone auto accident
The outcome of your case may look different than the outcomes of those listed here. Still, we believe that our case results showcase our commitment to client success and demonstrate our experience navigating the legal system.
How Ged Lawyers Manages Your West Palm Beach Car Accident Case
When Ged Lawyers represents a car accident victim in West Palm Beach, our accident attorneys manage all parts of the case. We investigate what happened, identify the at-fault party, value the damages, and pursue fair compensation for our client. Throughout the legal process, our client can continue their treatment and rehabilitation, focusing on their own health and healing.
Our Trial-Ready Lawyers Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

You Pay Nothing Out of Pocket for Our Legal Representation
We are a contingency-fee law firm. We never ask our clients to pay a retainer before we begin work. We only get paid after the case closes, and we win money for our client. If you do not get paid, we do not get paid.
Our West Palm Beach Car Crash Lawyers Build a Case Based on Fault
When you choose our West Palm Beach auto accident lawyers to represent you, you can trust us to develop a compelling case that holds the at-fault driver responsible.
Florida law generally limits crash victims to filing a no-fault claim unless they suffer serious injuries. We can explore whether you meet the “serious injuries” threshold to pursue a fault-based claim, then build the case and pursue compensation on your behalf.
To hold another driver legally liable for your injuries, we will need to show it was their carelessness or recklessness that caused the collision. This requires us to investigate and gather evidence to show what happened. This evidence could allow us to convince the at-fault party’s insurance carrier they caused the crash. We could also use this evidence to convince a jury to rule in your favor at trial.
When Should I Hire a West Palm Beach Personal Injury Lawyer?
We recommend calling us as soon as your injuries allow to discuss your accident and injuries. For some, this could be within a few days or weeks after the crash. For others, it could be longer. If your loved one has catastrophic injuries and is unlikely to make the call on their own for an extended time, contact us on their behalf.
Often, we can build a stronger case against the at-fault driver when we begin investigating a crash quickly. Some evidence disappears within days or weeks of a collision, and this evidence could be crucial in proving your case. For example, many businesses only keep surveillance video for a week or two. Imagine a nearby business caught the crash on video. We need to act quickly to secure and preserve it.
We Must Act Quickly to Abide by Legal Deadlines
It is also crucial that we have enough time to meet the statute of limitations for filing an accident lawsuit against the negligent driver. Under HB 837/SB236, passed in early 2023, car accident claimants now only have two years from the crash date to file a lawsuit. This is considerably shorter than the previous timeline.
By consulting our team at your earliest convenience, we can uphold your case’s deadline and work to gather time-sensitive evidence. Because we work on contingency and charge nothing upfront, you have nothing to lose by partnering with our personal injury attorneys.
