How We Build a Case for Your Compensation in Boca Raton
Our team will handle all the details of your injury case for you by:
- Investigating your accident to demonstrate how it was caused and who is liable
- Handling all the legal conversations for you
- Negotiating a settlement or taking your case to trial
- Applying our knowledge of state and local law for your case’s benefit
- Helping you understand your options throughout the process of your case
Even in cases where you were clearly hurt by someone else’s actions, we will need to take several steps to build a case based on evidence. With this evidence in hand, we can seek the best possible compensation available.
Identifying Who Is Liable for Your Accident
You may not be sure who to hold responsible for your crash. Your bicycle accident could have been caused by any of the following parties:
- A passenger vehicle driver
- A rideshare driver
- A commercial driver
- Another bicyclist
- A pedestrian
- A homeowner or property owner
- A municipality
After we investigate the facts of your case, we can tell you if one or more parties may be responsible. We will then file a claim or lawsuit against all liable parties.
Handling the Complexities of an Insurance Claim or Lawsuit
Any injury case can quickly become a complicated matter. Our team will handle all the conversations with insurance companies and lawyers for you during the claim or lawsuit process. We want you to focus your energy on healing while we handle the legal details.
Many insurance companies will attempt to protect their bottom line – and they may undervalue your case as a result. They may claim that your injuries aren’t serious, that your medical care needs are unrelated to the accident, and other allegations intended to downplay your case’s worth.
We know how to handle these conversations and seek the best results for your case.
Using Florida and Boca Raton Law to Seek Your Fair Compensation
Many state and local laws apply to bicycle accident cases. For instance, Boca Raton City Code Sec. 23-165 notes that shared use bike paths:
- Are to be maintained by the city
- Should be lit for evening hours
If you were hurt on a shared use path that contained hazardous riding conditions, we may be able to hold the city or another responsible party liable.
