Broward County Personal Injury Lawyer
Broward County Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Producing Results for Injured Clients of South Florida
Obtaining a comprehensive compensation award for injuries sustained in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligent or reckless actions can take time, knowledge and resources. In reality, most accident victims are exclusively focused on their recovery following an accident, and may be tempted to accept the insurance company’s initial offer—after all, some compensation is better than none. Unfortunately, initial insurance settlement offers almost never accurately or fairly represent the compensation that you will actually need to fully recover from your injuries, leaving many accident victims with medical bills and accident-related expenses that are never fully compensated.
At Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., we are dedicated to pursuing justice for accident victims in Broward County and throughout South Florida. When another person’s actions cause you harm, you deserve to be made financially whole for the damage that you have suffered. We are proud of the reputation that we have developed throughout the community for providing smart and compassionate legal counsel to our injured clients, and are ready to put our skills to work in recovering compensation in your case. Our offices are fully bilingual, so you can feel comfortable consulting our lawyers even if you are not fully comfortable with English.
Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Broward County
Personal injury cases can stem from any number of different types of accidents and incidents, each of which will require investigation and research to uncover evidence and establish liability. Some of the more common types of accidents that we have handled in Broward County include:
- Car accidents,
- Truck accidents,
- Bus accidents,
- Motorcycle accidents,
- Boating accidents,
- Uber/Lyft accidents,
- Taxi accidents,
- Slip-and-fall accidents,
- Defective products,
- Medical malpractice,

Regardless of how your injury occurred, to establish your legal right to recover compensation, most personal injury lawsuits will proceed based on a negligence theory of liability. This means that we will work to show that another party owed you a duty of care, and that by breaching that duty, caused injuries and damages.

The Broward County, Florida Area
Broward County is the second highest populated county in Florida, with a population of nearly 2 million residents, and is located in the Miami metropolitan area. Broward County is home to the famous resort beaches of Fort Lauderdale, and much of the Everglades national park is located in the county. From a historical perspective, the Broward County area was settled nearly 12,000 years ago by Native Americans who settled along the Miami River. Technically, however, Broward County as we know it today was founded in 1915 and named for Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, who was governor of Florida in the early part of the century. Today, with 23 miles of beachfront property, Broward County is a popular spring break destination and attracts tourists from around the world.
It is true that every case is different, and future costs can be difficult to anticipate. However, we have the resources necessary to consult with medical experts, who will work with us in evaluating your medical records and diagnosis in order to anticipate any ongoing costs of care or rehabilitative costs that you may need in order to recover fully. Our experience handling personal injury cases has given us the knowledge necessary to anticipate what you may need for the future, and we fight to win every dollar that you deserve.
After hearing your account of the accident, our lawyers will begin investigating to uncover evidence to identify the responsible party. We will file a claim with the relevant insurance companies if you have not already done so, and once you have completed treatment and/or we are able to get a realistic sense of what ongoing treatment will be required, we will negotiate with the insurance adjusters to attempt to reach a full and fair settlement. This usually involves preparing a counteroffer to any initial settlement offer. If we cannot reach agreement, we will file a lawsuit, but continue negotiations with the at-fault party to attempt to reach a settlement without court intervention. Most cases never proceed to trial, but we are ready and willing to protect your rights in the court if necessary.
