South Florida Personal Injury Lawyers
Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys Fight for Clients in Broward County, Palm Beach County, and all of South Florida
Sustaining a serious personal injury as a result of another party’s negligence can be frustrating, stressful, and, of course, expensive. Medical bills pile up quickly when hospitalization is required, and, in many cases, extensive rehabilitation or modifications to the home may be required in order to allow you to live with your injury. If you have been injured and believe that it was due to a third party’s negligent actions or omissions, contact the Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. to discuss your options. Our office is fully bilingual, and we have been handling Broward County Injuries and Palm Beach County Injuries for over a decade.
Personal Injury Lawyers Dedicated to Protecting Clients Who Have Been Seriously Injured
In order to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit in Florida, the injuries sustained must meet a certain medical threshold designed to prevent cases involving minor injuries from causing congestion in the court system. The categories of injuries that meet this threshold are relatively vague, but our attorneys have significant experience in evaluating whether a client’s injuries are serious enough to warrant a lawsuit. The legal categories that meet the personal injury threshold in Florida are:
- Injuries that involve significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function.
- Injuries that are considered permanent within a reasonable degree of medical probability.
- Injuries that involve significant and permanent scarring or physical disfigurement.
While these categories may seem to only encompass the most serious personal injuries, courts regularly allow personal injury lawsuits to proceed in cases that involve broken bones, regardless of the probability that the injury will heal. A broken leg, for example, will significantly impair the injured party’s ability to walk for an extended period of time, and this can form the basis for a personal injury lawsuit, regardless of the fact that the bone will eventually heal.
Because of this threshold, a skilled attorney with substantial experience handling personal injury lawsuits can be key to ensuring that you recover compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys have been nationally recognized by the Martindale-Hubbell Lawyer Rating Service as an AV-rated law firm, which is the highest possible rating a law firm can achieve. We have also been recognized by Super Lawyers and Top Latino Lawyers, and we are members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Our skill and compassion have been widely recognized throughout Palm Beach County and Broward County, Florida, especially among injured parties who may be afraid to come forward because of their immigration status. We are here to help all members of our community (documented or undocumented / documentados e indocumentados) fight for their rights to be fairly compensated for personal injuries caused by the actions of an at-fault party.
