Boynton Beach Personal Injury
Located on the water in Palm County, Boynton Beach offers quick access to some of Florida’s best beaches, and also has an enticing downtown and mall, too. While this place has a lot of natural beauty, crime in the area has earned it a reputation as a more dangerous place to live, although recent data show that rates of violence in Boynton Beach are down. Most injuries that occur within the city aren’t the result of violence, though, but instead occur due to others’ negligence. Car accidents, slip and fall cases, and other accidents are almost always preventable. If you have been in a preventable accident and have suffered injuries as a result, you have a personal injury claim. To learn more about your right to bring forth a personal injury case and how our injury lawyers can help, please call our office directly today for a free consultation.

The Basics of a Personal Injury Claim
A personal injury claim is a type of civil action (with no criminal penalties) where an injured party tries to hold the party responsible for their injuries liable for the damages and costs they’ve incurred. In order to be successful, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care, that the duty of care was breached, and that the breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of harm. If successful, the plaintiff can seek damages for the full value of their losses, including the value of medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage costs, and more.
