West Palm Beach Personal Injury Attorneys
When you’re hurt in an accident, your entire life can change. You might find yourself facing disability, nerve damage, broken bones, substantial rehabilitation, and the loss of your ability to perform your job. All of these accident consequences can destroy another sensitive area of your life: your financial well being. A medical bill for a broken leg can be a significant expense and a permanent disability can devastate your family. Do not allow either of these scenarios to happen to you.
Fortunately, they don’t have to. At Pike & Lustig, LLP, we are committed to fighting for monetary compensation for accident victims. If you were not responsible for your injury, you should not be responsible for its cost. Let us help you make sure the responsible party pays its fair share of the damage it caused. Our West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys proudly serve injury victims in the West Palm Beach area, in addition to providing quality legal help with business litigation issues.
Sustaining a serious injury in an unexpected accident may not only be traumatizing but may cause many complications in your life. You may require extensive medical treatment and may not be able to work as your injuries heal. Some injury victims never experience full physical recovery and are left with permanent disabilities and long-lasting challenges. In some cases, severe injuries can lead to emotional issues and a loss of enjoyment of life.
Fortunately, if your injury occurred in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another person or party, the law allows you seek financial recovery for your injury-related losses by filing a personal injury claim in civil court. While monetary compensation cannot take away your physical pain or the struggles of a disability, it can assist you in covering your bills and expenses and can give you a sense of justice for your suffering.

How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help You
At Pike & Lustig, LLP, our skilled West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys can assist you in a number of ways following an accident and injuries. First, we can fully evaluate the circumstances of your case to help you determine liability in the accident by identifying any negligent parties. These parties can include drivers, manufacturers, government entities, and more. Even if the accident was partially your fault, you may still be able to recover for part of your losses under Florida law.
In some cases, our attorneys are able to communicate and negotiate with the insurance company of the responsible party to obtain a settlement that adequately covers your losses. This tactic can help you avoid the litigation process so that you can receive your compensation in a more timely manner. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always offer a sufficient settlement, especially in cases involving catastrophic injuries. In such situations, preparing and filing a legal claim will likely be necessary for you to fully recover. Florida law only gives you a limited amount of time to file a claim, so you want to discuss your situation with a member of our team as soon as you can following an accident.
In order to succeed in recovering in your personal injury case, you must prove that the adverse party acted in a negligent manner. Negligence can take many forms in personal injury cases, including but not limited to:
- Distracted or drunk driving;
- Violating traffic, health, or safety laws;
- Failure to keep premises in reasonably safe condition for visitors; or
- Manufacturing companies selling defective products with parts that may malfunction.
Our West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys fully understand the laws of negligence and the evidence needed to prove negligence in court. Often, gathering strong evidence can assist us in negotiations for a favorable settlement agreement prior to trial. If the other party refuses to offer an appropriate settlement for your losses, we will provide zealous representation at trial to obtain a successful verdict. We have extensive litigation experience and know how to make the legal process as efficient and stress-free for you as possible.
