    After you suffer a personal injury, it’s normal for panic to set in. You’ve been injured—how will you pay your medical bills? What will happen if you need to take time off of work? Who will take care of your family while you recover? It all seems especially unfair when someone else is responsible for your injuries, yet you seem to be shouldering the burden alone.

    It doesn’t have to be like that. With Boca Raton personal injury lawyer David I. Fuchs on your side, you can focus on recovering while he works to secure the compensation you deserve. He brings over three decades of personal injury experience to the table, and his in-depth knowledge of personal injury law makes him the obvious choice for your unique case.

    Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Lawyers Handle in Boca Raton

    Personal injury is a sizable area of law, covering a wide range of case types, serious injuries, and accidents. Because of this, it’s important to choose a Boca Raton attorney with experience in your type of injury case. You don’t want your case to be the first time an attorney handles your type of claim.

    Some types of personal injury cases we handle include but are not limited to:

    Essentially, any type of injury that is caused by someone else’s negligence could warrant a personal injury lawsuit. You should always discuss your options with a skilled legal representative, to determine the best path forward.

    Proving Liability & Fighting for Compensation in Personal Injury Cases

    There are several components to any personal injury case. Your dedicated injury lawyer in Boca Raton will start by looking at the details of how your injury occurred and what role the other party (or parties) played in it. This involves proving liability. To prove liability, you must demonstrate that the other party had an obligation or duty to you.

    In a car accident, for example, the other driver has a general obligation to everyone on the road to drive in a safe and legal manner. From there, you must show that they did not fulfill that duty. To continue the example, they ran a stop sign while texting. You have to show that this action caused the accident and that the accident led to your injuries.

    What Compensation Are You Able to Collect in Boca Raton?

    After proving liability, your injury attorney will move on to proving the extent of your injuries and the losses they have caused you. Depending on which type of claim you have and the nature of your injuries, you may be able to get compensation for:

    Medical Bills

    This includes bills for ambulance transportation, medication costs, copays, surgical fees, and other related costs.

    Future Medical Expenses

    If your injuries are serious enough to require lifelong or ongoing care, you may get compensation for the costs you’ll incur in the future.

    Lost Wages

    Whether you spend one day or one year away from work because of your accident, you should be compensated for it in your settlement.

    Lost Future Wages

    When an accident leaves you so severely injured that you can no longer work or you lose promotion opportunities, you may get compensation for lost future income.

    Property Damage

    This includes car repairs or the cost of a totaled vehicle.

    Pain and Suffering

    Nothing can take away the pain you’ve experienced because of an accident, but you should still be compensated for it. The amount you get for pain and suffering is usually based on the cost of your medical expenses and the severity of your injuries.

    Mental Anguish

    Victims often struggle with mental health issues after a major injury. This type of compensation is for those who develop PTSD, anxiety, depression, or other issues after an accident.

    Note that Florida has a comparative negligence theory. This means that you may receive less compensation if you are partially to blame for the accident. For example, consider a car crash that causes you $100,000 in losses. The court finds you to be 30% responsible for the accident. You would receive $70,000 instead of $100,000. A seasoned attorney in Boca Raton could help you understand how this system applies to your personal injury case.

    Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

    At this point, you might be wondering why you need a personal injury attorney. If you have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance—which is required in Florida—why would you need an injury lawyer to make sure you get paid? Your insurance company is on your side, right?

    Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case. Even when your own insurance has to pay out, they often drag out the personal injury case process, deny a claim for no apparent reason, or otherwise cause you extra stress. When you bring a dedicated injury lawyer in Boca Raton to the table, they are far less likely to engage in unethical practices and more likely to pay what you are owed promptly.

    On top of that, it’s likely that you’ll need to go after the other party’s insurance company to get compensation above and beyond the limits of your own PIP plan. A civil lawsuit allows you to seek compensation for expenses that your PIP does not cover.

    If you do begin the personal injury lawsuit process, you can expect the other party’s insurance company to do everything they can to limit the amount they payout. Their main priority is their profit margins, and the easiest way to boost profits is to limit the amount they payout to injured victims. They might claim that you are to blame for the accident, downplay your injuries, alleging that you are lying, or otherwise run your claim off the rails.

    When you hire David I. Fuchs as your legal representation, you don’t have to worry about these underhanded tactics. With more than 30 years in personal injury law, he is completely familiar with how insurance companies run down settlement amounts and what it takes to hold them accountable. He will not encourage you to take an unfair settlement just to avoid court.

    He will do everything in his power to secure a fair settlement through negotiation, but if the other side just won’t negotiate in good faith, he is more than ready to take your personal injury case to court.

    “…the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated”

    Fuchs was my car accident attorney and was very responsive from the first call. I had medical care the next day and the whole process was smooth. They handled everything with the insurance companies and coordinated all of the necessary medical information. It was a long process and in the end the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated I am more than happy and grateful for the outcome.

    “…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

    I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

    “Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

    Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
