Top-Rated Car Accident Lawyers Represent Injured Clients in Palm Beach County and Across South Florida
Driving a motor vehicle may be one of the most dangerous activities you will do in your life. But because you drive your car or truck almost every day (or more), it may not feel so dangerous. However, this feeling of complacency can sometimes lead to an accident.
If you are ever injured in a car accident in Boynton Beach, FL you will likely have struggles keeping your life the same as it was before the crash. If you’re lucky, you just need to deal with the inconvenience of making a few phone calls and getting your car repaired.
If you’re unlucky, you’ve suffered serious injuries and have to deal with sky-high medical bills for surgery, treatment, and rehabilitation. Then there’s missing time from work which can lead to lost wages and unpaid bills.
The team at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. knows how unfair all this can be. Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience representing clients injured in car accidents in Boynton Beach and throughout South Florida. We know what’s at stake when you suffer an injury and will fight for your right to compensation.
The Struggle to Obtain Compensation Following a Boynton Beach, FL Car Accident
Sometimes it’s obvious who or what caused the accident. But even when this happens, making a full recovery can be quite challenging. One of the reasons is because of car insurance companies.
Not all car insurance companies are hard to work with, but some can be. And even when they’re more than willing to pay out on a claim, they might not pay everything you’re entitled to receive. They might underpay despite your policy of insurance or Florida law saying otherwise.
Car insurance companies benefit by providing great customer service. But they do not benefit from paying out any more than they can get away with. Often times, this leads to a conflict of goals that can frustrate any driver who’s been in a car accident.
This is why it’s helpful to have an attorney on your side when dealing with car insurance companies. This is particularly evident when it’s the car insurance company for the driver who caused the accident.
Common Car Accidents Causes in Boynton Beach, FL
Determining the cause of the car accident can help determine who will be responsible for providing you with compensation. Many accidents are easy to explain. This is especially true when there are only two cars involved.
But when there are multiple drivers involved, things can get a bit more complicated. One of the reasons for this is because there can be multiple people legally and financially responsible for causing the accident.
To deal with situations where the law may have to assign liability to two or more people, Florida courts will apply the theory of comparative negligence. This basically says that any recovery will be reduced by that person’s level of responsibility in causing the accident.
For example, let’s say you suffered $50,000 in damages. However, if you were 10% at-fault for creating those damages, you would only be able to recover $45,000.
The team at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. has plenty of experience representing clients who have been injured in practically every type of car accident. This includes accidents caused by the following:

It can often be difficult dealing with an injury following a car accident, regardless of what caused it. Our dedicated team understands the issues you will face and has the experience to effectively advocate on your behalf no matter the accident’s cause.

Calculating Damages Following your Boynton Beach Car Accident
For the most part, the only thing you can recover following an accident is money. But when there are serious personal injuries, it’s hard to figure out the exact amount of compensation needed.
Yes, you can easily calculate your medical costs. But what about the intangible losses that stem from your injuries?
For instance, if you miss time with your family, you can never get that back. Or how about those days when you were in agony following the accident and emergency surgery?
How do you put a price on those things? You can’t really, but the courts will still try. So that means it all comes down to money.
If you find yourself seeking compensation for your injuries following a traffic accident, our team can help you acquire any and all of the following:
- Lost wages (present and future)
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Costs for rehabilitation
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of support
- Funeral expenses
You’ll need to keep in mind that not all of these damages will be available in all car accidents. This is even if you suffered a physical injury. That’s because Florida is a “no-fault state.” This usually means no personal injury lawsuits for car accident injuries are allowed except when the injuries qualify as “serious.”
