Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Claims Based on Negligence
Most personal injury lawsuits are based on the fact that someone else was negligent and caused your injuries as a result. To prove negligence from a legal standpoint, it is necessary to establish the following elements:
- A duty of care (this means that someone else had a duty to act carefully to keep others safe–for example, all drivers on the roads share this duty),
- Someone breached that duty by acting carelessly,
- Those actions caused your injury, and
- You suffered damages as a result of the injury.
In some cases, a strict liability standard may apply to impose responsibility regardless of the level of caution exercised (for example, in a defective products case). However, in the usual personal injury case, the legal basis for holding someone financially responsible for your injuries is negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Claims
This is one of the most common questions we hear. In most cases, you will not have to go to court. Insurance companies understand that going to court is expensive. They also have an idea of what your case is worth even though they will try to offer you less. Despite this, when an insurance company refuses to agree to a fair amount, filing a lawsuit will be necessary. At Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., we are always prepared to go to court to fight for your legal right to fair compensation.
It is best to wait until your primary course of treatment is complete to make sure our initial demand from the insurance company fully reflects the cost of your injury. Logically, until you go back to work, you will not know how much work you will miss—so accepting an early award might cause you to miss out on lost wages. Additionally, if your medical treatment does not work as well as expected, you are also entitled to compensation for the additional required care you receive—and once you accept a settlement, you cannot go back and ask for more.
