Florida Personal Injury Protection
Florida’s no-fault insurance system demands that drivers carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP).

Compensation is paid regardless of fault.

If you believe you have a viable personal injury claim, it is important to contact personal injury lawyer west palm beach as soon as possible. As it is with other states, Florida has a statute of limitations regarding how long one can wait to bring a lawsuit.
The statute of limitations for most injury cases in Florida is four years and for wrongful death, it is two years. The reason why states have statute of limitations restrictions is due to the fact that they want to limit nuisance suits and lawsuits in which evidence has become lost or damaged or witnesses are no longer able to effectively offer testimony.
In working with you, the legal team at Scott J. Sternberg & Associates, P.A., will be completely devote to the process of getting you every benefit that you deserve. It begins with an initial, free consultation where we examine the specifics related to your case and discuss options that we believe to be viable.
After that, if you decide to pursue your case, we will begin collecting documentation, evidence, and witness accounts related to your civil lawsuit.
We will also, as the case progresses, be in communication with the defendant’s legal counsel, seeking to find a settlement that will properly compensate you while keeping the case out of court. Settling out of court is often preferred, as this saves the plaintiff from the pressure of having to endure a trial. It also saves money, and it negates the unpredictable nature of the courtroom.
Of course if Scott J. Sternberg & Associates, P.A., cannot broker the right agreement, we will be ready to present your case in a clear, detailed, and convincing manner. We’ll be aggressive, passionate, and professional as we fight to make sure that you receive the justice that you deserve.
