Bilingual Personal Injury Lawyers Handle Your Delray Beach Claim from Beginning to End

Our personal injury lawyers at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. will stand by your side from start to finish—whatever that end point may be for you.  We understand if you prefer to resolve your case out of court even though we are always prepared to fight through trial to protect your rights. Taking into account your full circumstances, we will put the full weight of our legal skills to work to recover the most available compensation for:

  • Medical expenses,
  • Long-term care,
  • Physical therapy,
  • Lost wages,
  • Your inability to return to your former employment,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Emotional distress,
  • Loss of the companionship or guidance of a loved one,
  • Property damage,
  • Any special damages unique to your case.

To recover these types of compensation, it is important to carefully follow the personal injury process that applies in Delray Beach.  For example, Florida law only allows you to file a lawsuit within four years of the accident—which may seem like a long time, but it is always better to get the evidence we need soon after your accident.   Our personal injury lawyers will:

  • Investigate your case to get the evidence we need,
  • File your claim and the required notices that we will be seeking compensation,
  • Negotiate with the insurance companies to get from their initial (usually low) settlement offer to a full and fair compensation package,
  • File a lawsuit if the insurance company refuses to negotiate fairly,
  • Argue your case in court if needed.

About Delray Beach, FL

Delray Beach is located in Palm Beach County, Florida.  Although the Delray Beach population is only estimated at about 69,358 as of 2018, its 3-miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean attract thousands of seasonal residents and tourists each year.  In the past decade, Delray Beach has been named America’s Most Fun Small Town (Rand McNally) and the 3rd Happiest Seaside Town (Coastal Living).  

Delray Beach is also one of the towns that have adopted a ‘street legal’ rule to allow golf cart transportation throughout the community—a rule that, unfortunately, can create conditions where injuries are likely to occur among inexperienced drivers.

Frequently Asked Questions About Delray Beach Personal Injury Claims

FAQ: How does the insurance company or a jury decide how much money I should receive for pain and suffering?

In calculating compensation for pain and suffering, the expertise of your lawyer really does matter. When your lawyer takes the time to fully understand how your injury has impacted your life, they can make a more compelling argument for higher pain and suffering damages. Under Florida law, pain and suffering damages are available based on “what is fair and just in light of the evidence”. Pain and suffering damages can account for:

-The physical pain of the recovery process,
-The trauma of the accident itself,
-Your future inability to participate in the activities you once enjoyed—even if it is simply the ability to lift your grandchildren,
-The inconvenience of having to travel to doctor’s appointments, spend time in the hospital or even find someone to drive you to the grocery store.

FAQ: What if I’m not sure about filing a personal injury lawsuit because the person who injured me does not have much money?

It is almost always an insurance company who is actually responsible for paying your compensation. Accidents do happen, and it can be any one of us who may one day find ourselves at fault. In reality, the insurance company is ultimately liable. Depending upon the type of accident involved, we may be able to pursue compensation from a:

-Car insurance company,
-Homeowner’s insurance policy,
-Business liability policy,
-Commercial insurance policy.
