Highway Accident in Boynton Beach
Boynton Beach is criss-crossed by major highways. Interstate 95 is the most obvious, running North-South throughout the State of Florida. Boynton also is served by the Florida Turnpike, Federal Highway, and US Highway 441. These roadways provide fast travel for those in a hurry. However, because of the large number of vehicles on these roads and because of the higher speeds on highways, accidents on these convenient roadways can cause serious, even fatal, injuries.
The law firm of Frankl & Kominsky has represented numerous South Florida victims of highway accidents. Our experienced attorneys can help Boynton Beach victims of car accidents recover losses incurred through no fault of their own.Negligence on Boynton's Highways
Highway accidents in Boynton are caused by many of the same conditions that cause accidents on other roads. Driver negligence, bad weather, poor road conditions, animals on the roadway, can all cause problems. However, any accident on a highway is likely to cause more injuries than accidents on other roads, because of the higher speed limits on highways. Wrong-way driving or head on collisions on highways are particularly dangerous on highways. Likewise, highways in Boynton are often the scene of accidents caused by fatigued or distracted drivers, or drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Proving negligence in a highway accident requires the skills of an experienced legal team. To show that the other driver was negligent in causing an accident, the plaintiff - or victim - must show the following:
- The driver owed a duty of care to him or her;
- That duty of care was breached by the defendant’s actions;
- That breach directly led to the injuries; and
- Damages resulted for which he or she can be compensated.
If the victim and his or her legal team can demonstrate negligence by the other driver, he or she can hold that driver accountable for the accident. That means that if a victim can show negligence, he or she may be able to recover the costs of medical expenses, the cost of future medical expenses, lost income or loss of earning potential, pain and suffering, damage to property, and other financial compensation.The Law Firm of Frankl & Kominsky
