What Damages Can Our West Palm Beach Personal Injury Attorney Recover?
For many victims, the main purpose of pursuing a personal injury case is to recover the money necessary to pay for their medical care and other accident-related losses. While they want to hold the negligent party accountable, getting the financial recovery they need to recover from the accident is critical.
Settling for too little money could mean paying for future or ongoing care out of your pocket or having less income with no way to make up the difference. Our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers want to ensure you do not accept a lowball settlement offer from an insurance adjuster just because it sounds like enough money.
We gather documentation of a client’s expenses and losses and use them to value the recoverable damages in the case. This is how we know what a fair settlement might look like. Common recoverable damages after a West Palm Beach car accident can include the following:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Related expenses, including long-term and future care
- Lost income
- Reduced ability to work and earn
- Property damages and repair
- Miscellaneous related expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Impaired quality of life
- Loss of companionship
Wrongful Death Damages
Our West Palm Beach team also represents clients after their loved one’s wrongful death. If negligence caused your loved one’s death in West Palm Beach, you could recover compensation and hold the at-fault party accountable with a wrongful death lawsuit.

How Does a West Palm Beach Personal Injury Attorney Know Who Is Liable in My Case?
Personal injury cases usually involve negligence. One party failed to uphold a duty of care to another, this caused an accident or incident, and the victim suffered injuries. In more simple terms, one party’s carelessness or recklessness hurt another. When we can present evidence to document what happened and who is legally liable, we can usually recover fair compensation for the victim.
Our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers know the evidence to look for based on the type of incident or accident and other circumstances. We investigate every case we handle, gathering the necessary proof and documenting the client’s damages.
Some steps we often take to develop a compelling case for compensation include:
- Obtaining a police report, an incident report and other documents from first responders
- Seeking video footage of the incident
- Gathering witness statements
- Requesting relevant medical records
- Discuss prognosis, future care needs, and other topics with experts
- Documenting the expenses and losses incurred
How Can a West Palm Beach Attorney Recover Compensation in My Personal Injury Case?
There are several ways we recover compensation for our clients in a West Palm Beach personal injury case. These include:
- Personal injury lawsuits that settle
- Personal injury lawsuits, jury trials, and verdicts
- Mediation, arbitration, or other dispute resolution tactics
- Negotiating a fair settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance provider
The best approach for your case will depend on many factors. Out-of-court settlements, whether before or after filing a lawsuit, are most common.
What Is the Timeline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in WBP?
We recommend calling us as soon as possible after your injuries. The sooner we begin investigating what happened, the more likely we are to identify crucial evidence to hold the at-fault party accountable. If we cannot settle your claim for compensation, we could pursue a lawsuit, but we have only certain amount of time to do so.
There is a deadline for filing an injury lawsuit in West Palm Beach. Generally, the statute of limitations in a Florida personal injury case is two years from the date of injury, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(a).
