What Causes Car Accidents in Delray Beach?
Delray Beach’s attractive location on the East Coast of Florida makes it a popular destination for both tourists and seasonal residents. The population of Delray Beach—and the associated traffic—explodes during the winter months. The combination of roads that are more crowded than usual and drivers who are unfamiliar with our roadways can unfortunately increase the odds that you will be involved in a car accident.
Other common causes of car accidents in Delray Beach include:
- Texting while driving which, while now a ticket-able offense on Florida roads, continues to distract drivers,
- Distractions such as GPS, the radio and even children in the vehicle,
- Overly aggressive driving,
- Speeding and tailgating,
- Traffic violations, such as failure to yield or failing to stop at a red light,
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
- Fatigued driving,
- Defects in the car’s parts,
- Poor road conditions,
- Bad weather.
Although Florida is a no-fault insurance state, the cause of your accident remains important. Your own insurance company does provide you with the first line of defense, but you might also be entitled to compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. This is especially true if you have suffered a serious injury, such as:
- Traumatic brain injury,
- Broken bones,
- Severe burns,
- Permanent disfigurement,
- Loss of a limb,
- Head and neck injuries,
- Internal organ damage,
- Spinal cord injuries.
These and other serious injuries can give you the right to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Even more importantly, you will likely need that compensation if you are facing the lengthy recovery that any of these injuries might require.
Results-Driven Car Accident Lawyers Help Crash Victims Get Fair Compensation for Their Injuries
In almost all car accident cases, it is someone’s insurance company that eventually pays compensation to the accident victim. However, it’s important to remember that the insurance company is not there to protect your rights. In fact, it is the insurance company’s job to minimize the damages that you receive.
At Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., the primary goal of our Delray Beach car accident lawyers is to protect your right to fair compensation. If your injuries were caused by a negligent or reckless driver, we will explore every possible option to protect your legal rights.
We fight to get maximum compensation for:
- Medical bills,
- Your future medical needs,
- Lost wages and diminished earning potential,
- The cost of rehabilitative care and physical therapy,
- Pain and suffering,
- And more.

About Delray Beach, Florida
Delray Beach is located about 52 miles north of Miami on the Southeast Coast of Florida, in Palm Beach County. Although Delray Beach is to be part of the Miami metropolitan area, it is known for its small-town charm with only about 69,000 residents. With two miles of public beach, Delray Municipal Beach has been named one of the top beaches in the southeastern U.S. The “Delray Wreck”—which is the remnants of a sunken ship just off the coast—provides a habitat for fish and sea life, attracting snorkelers and scuba divers alike to the area.
