West Palm Beach Lawyers Assist Victims of Car Accidents

Accomplished litigators seek damages for injured drivers and passengers

Getting hurt in a car accident is both a painful and a frightening experience. Aside from the physical injuries, victims also face financial repercussions and the difficulties of dealing with insurance companies. Our seasoned lawyers at Vassallo, Bilotta & Davis help drivers, passengers and pedestrians secure payment for the damage that they have suffered. With offices in West Palm Beach and Stuart, we work tirelessly to address the expenses and lost income triggered by a vehicle collision. In many cases, our representation can lead to a prompt, fair settlement from your insurance company. If going to court is the better option, however, we prepare a comprehensive argument on your behalf.

Seasoned advisers explain Florida auto insurance matters

Florida is a no-fault auto insurance state, which means that, in most cases, someone injured in a car crash pursues relief through their own car insurance company. However, some circumstances can alter your options. Our firm provides thorough advice on these matters, including issues such as:

  • Serious injury threshold — An accident that results in a permanent injury or disfigurement entitles victims to seek relief through a lawsuit. We can examine your medical condition and pursue litigation when appropriate.
  • Comparative fault — In many cases, both parties bear responsibility for a vehicle collision. While some jurisdictions prohibit recovery if a victim is assigned some fault, Florida is a pure comparative negligence state — you can obtain damages even if you are partly liable for the crash.
  • Uninsured motorists — Though carriers must offer insurance to cover damages caused by uninsured or underinsured motorists, Florida law does not require drivers to purchase this type of policy. If this coverage is pertinent to your case, we will advise you of your rights.

In a free initial consultation, our personal injury attorneys can review the relevant facts and outline your choices. From there, we negotiate vigorously with your insurer or argue effectively in court so that you can receive the financial recovery that you deserve. Our firm also has extensive experience handling legal matters associated with truck and motorcycle accidents.

Don’t delay getting the legal help you need when you’ve been injured in any kind of car accident: acting quickly can help us locate the evidence needed to secure a fair outcome.

“I can’t thank Joseph Bilotta enough for his excellent assistance in handling my personal injury claim. Without his support, I wouldn’t have been able to receive the benefits I wanted for myself. Being the only earning member of my family, it makes a big difference for me to have my medical bills taken care of. So, I was very pleased with the way he handled my needs. While I hope I do not have such trouble again, if I do I’d definitely turn to you.”
