Common Causes of Palm Beach County Car Accidents
The dense urban and suburban environment of Palm Beach County means that streets and roads are often very crowded, especially during rush hours and during tourist seasons here in South Florida. Busy roads are unfortunately a perfect environment for a car accident. Car crashes in Palm Beach County happen for numerous different reasons, but some of the most frequent causes of accidents include:
- Reckless and aggressive driving, such as tailgating or weaving in and out of traffic
- Distracted driving, including texting-while-driving, using the vehicle navigation or infotainment system, or interacting with passengers, small children, or pets in the vehicle
- Traffic violations, including running red lights or stop signs, failing to yield, and failing to use turn signals
- Fatigued or drowsy driving

Let Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. Fight to Ensure You Receive Maximum Compensation for Your Injuries After a Car Accident in Palm Beach County
Florida’s no-fault auto insurance system requires you to turn to your own insurer to recover compensation for medical treatment and other out-of-pocket expenses and losses under the personal injury protection (PIP) coverage in your policy. However, PIP coverage can be quickly exhausted. You may only pursue financial recovery from the driver or drivers responsible for the accident if you’ve suffered a serious injury, such as broken bones, internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, severe burns, traumatic brain injury, or amputations.
Obtaining full compensation even after you’ve suffered serious injuries in a Palm Beach County car accident can be a difficult process. Insurance companies will do everything they can to minimize their liability to you, such as trying to assign fault for the accident to you or argue that you haven’t suffered a serious injury that allows you to overcome the injury threshold. That’s why the attorneys of Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. aggressively pursue financial recovery for you for losses and expenses such as:
- Medical and rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages or income, or loss of earning potential
- Physical pain and emotional distress caused by your injuries and treatment
- Lost enjoyment of life because of physical disfigurement or disability

Frequently Asked Questions about Car Accidents in Palm Beach County, FL
If you are seriously injured in a car accident caused by a driver that doesn’t have liability coverage as part of their car insurance, you may be entitled to turn to your own auto insurance provider for compensation under the uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage in your policy if you purchased such coverage for yourself.
It is highly advisable to consult with a car accident attorney prior to accepting any settlement from the insurance company. The goal of the insurance company is to pay you as little money as possible, so the first offer of compensation they make to you rarely represents fair and full compensation for your losses. A car accident lawyer can review any settlement offer made by the insurance company to advise you whether, based on the facts and circumstances of your case, it provides you with fair value for your claim.
