Helping Hundreds Of Florida’s Injured Cyclists And Pedestrians
Bicyclists and pedestrians face countless dangers from drivers: distracted driving, reckless driving and intoxicated driving, to name just a few. The risk for motorists is substantially lower because motor vehicles have a steel frame for protection. Cyclists and pedestrians, though, stand to suffer severe – even fatal – injuries in a crash.
At X1Law, P.A., our attorney, Patrick Tighe, understands this all too well. From our location in Palm Beach, he has represented hundreds of injured cyclists and pedestrians throughout Florida. He puts the power back in your hands so you can recover maximum compensation for your damages.
Comparative Negligence: What To Know
Florida is a comparative negligence state. If the court determines that you share a portion of fault in a crash, your amount of compensation may decrease accordingly. For example, if a driver has 90% fault in a crash and you have 10%, you will receive only 90% of the settlement amount. Attorney Tighe has handled many cases involving comparative negligence. He has a strong record of reducing the percentage of his clients’ fault or getting the insurance company to shoulder 100% of the burden.
We Know How Insurance Companies Work
Before founding our firm, Mr. Tighe worked as a lawyer for an insurance company. In his time there, he learned the underhanded tactics that many insurers use to get their policy holders to accept lower-than-necessary settlements for injury claims. When advocating for you, he knows how to anticipate your insurance provider’s strategies. He works assertively to get the absolute best settlement or award that he can.
