Personal Injury Attorneys in West Palm Beach, Florida

Personal injury accidents take many forms, but the common factor is proving negligence. In essence, it must be established that the defendant owed a duty of care, and that this care was breached through negligence resulting in the injury accident; in other words, the defendant’s action or inaction was the major cause of the accident. Often clients share a degree of responsibility. This is called contributory negligence. For instance, a client may have been driving over the speed limit when the defendant suddenly turned in front of him. While speed may be a factor, the greater degree of fault may be with the defendant. A client who shares some culpability may in many cases still be able to recover damages. It should be noted that Florida is a no-fault state, and laws regulating the recovery of damages are complex.

At the Law Offices of Stephen J. Press, we will assess your situation by asking you questions, and then conduct an investigation. This will include obtaining the police and medical reports, interviewing witnesses, and perhaps visiting the scene of the accident. How a case proceeds from this point varies depending upon the specifics; however, Attorneys Stephen J. Press and Jessica Mishali will keep you up to speed on the progress of your case.
