Boca Raton, Florida Personal Injury and Accident Lawyers

Boca Raton is well known for having some of the most affluent people residing within its borders. One will routinely see Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Rollsroyce, Range Rovers and other exotic and highly valued motor vehicles. With a population of about 100,000 residents, the average resident is 47 years of age, with an average income of $89,000. The majority of residents are well educated; more than 56 percent of the population have a bachelor’s degree or higher.

The city of Boca Raton is well known for many things:

  • Lavish homes
  • Sandy tropical beaches
  • High-end shopping
  • Beautiful people
  • Outstanding restaurants
  • Top-notch plastic surgery centers
  • Exotic cars
  • Traffic congestion

Living in such a wonderful place, filled with extravagances, makes one believe that nothing bad ever happens, but it does. Paradise has its share of accidents. Regardless of how educated the population or how much wealth is acquired, people are people and they can be negligent in their actions.

Accordingly, the personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Roger P. Foley are ready and able to handle the following types of cases:

Car, truck and bus accidents can cause serious physical injuries. However, the emotional impact to the victim and their family can be even more devastating. After an accident, the injured party may have limited financial resources to care for their family. This can lead to anxiety and emotional distress because there are many questions but only limited answers.

When this occurs, it's important that you contact a top rated personal injury lawyer, not a legal assistant or a paralegal but an actual lawyer that handles car and truck crashes. Call our office to speak directly to attorney Roger P. Foley.

Boca Raton Car Crash Statistics and Causes

Florida ranks in the top three states for motor vehicle fatalities, according to multiple studies. In 2021, Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle statistics show that there were 24,739 crashes in Palm Beach County. Although there were no specific statistics on the amount of car crashes in Boca Raton, anyone that regularly drives in Boca Raton knows that traffic accidents occur often. Not every auto accident results in serious bodily injury or death; there are many fender benders where nobody is seriously injured. Yet, the fact remains that many auto accidents occur in Boca Raton. They occur for many reasons:

  • Speeding is a top cause of accidents
  • Reckless driving occurs when a vehicle weaves in and out of traffic
  • Running stop signs and red lights
  • Failure to adhere to traffic laws
  • Driving under the influence of Drugs and/or Alcohol
  • Driving while distracted (phone, radio)
  • Driving while sleepy or fatigued
  • Road Rage
  • Medical related issues
  • Mechanical problems with vehicle
How Do I Prove The Other Driver was Negligent And Caused the Car Accident in Boca Raton?

In the State of Florida, to prove negligence of the other driver, the injured party must establish the following in order to file an insurance claim or to bring a lawsuit:

  1. The other driver had a duty, an obligation, to drive safely and follow all traffic laws in Florida
  2. That driver failed to perform his/her duty
  3. That the failure to perform those duties caused the accident
  4. The accident was the cause of your injuries

Proving negligence can be difficult, people lie. It is common to hear the negligent party say, “it was not me, I was not speeding, the light was not red, it was your fault” and that makes determining negligence a challenge. For that reason, you seek out a diligent attorney that is willing to put in the energy to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.

Personal Injury Protection Insurance (PIP)

PIP is required for all drivers in Florida. Most would argue that $10,000 in personal injury protection is insufficient to handle most medical injuries caused by a car crash. If you are injured and need to go to the hospital emergency room you are nearly guaranteed to spend 10,000 dollars quicker than you would at any casino. At least in the casino, you know what you're spending.
