Common Types of Car Accident Injuries
Car crashes can cause injuries that range from fairly minor cuts and scrapes to permanent or catastrophic injuries that will impact every aspect of your daily life. Common injuries that our Boca Raton car accident cases involve include:
- Head and neck injuries, like whiplash,
- Back injuries, including spinal cord damage, damage to the discs or tendons,
- Joint damage,
- Broken bones,
- Burns and severe scars,
- Loss of limbs,
- Wrongful death.
Anyone of these injuries can leave you unable to work while you recover. In some cases, you might not be able to return to the same job even once you have recovered physically. After you have reached your own insurance policy limits, you might still find yourself facing unpaid bills. When someone else caused your accident, we can present a claim to the at-fault driver’s insurance company for additional compensation.

Boca Raton is located on Florida’s Southeastern Coast. Known for golf courses and beaches, Boca Raton attracts a number of seasonal residents who travel south each year to escape the cold.

It is home to the largest indoor shopping center in Palm Beach County, the Boca Town Center, and the main campus of Florida Atlantic University.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accident Claims in Boca Raton
FAQ: What if the insurance company already offered me a settlement. Do I need a lawyer?
You should have an experienced car accident lawyer review the settlement. Sometimes insurance companies bank on the fact that accident victims want to get their case resolved quickly. They use this understandable motivation to get injured people to accept lowball offers. In your free case review, we can look at the settlement offer to see if it fairly accounts for both your current and future expenses—as well as more intangible harm that the accident caused, like pain and suffering.
It means that every driver is required to carry car insurance under Florida law. That car insurance will provide compensation after a car accident regardless of who caused the accident. Generally, Florida drivers must carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. Before looking at any other options to get compensation, you make a claim with your own insurance company. However, this does not mean that you can’t recover additional compensation. If your injuries were serious, Florida law also allows you to make a claim with the at-fault driver.
