Gonzalez & Cartwright Fight for Fair Compensation for Motor Vehicle Accident Victims in Pompano Beach
Most motor vehicle accident cases do not proceed all the way to a full-blown trial, as defendants and insurance companies are also motivated to avoid the time, expense and trauma of a trial by judge or jury. Because of this, we are usually able to obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries through the negotiation process with the insurance company, including compensation for:
- All medical expenses, including hospital bills and expenses for follow-up care,
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation and other forms of ongoing care,
- Prescription drug costs,
- In-home care or in-home modifications,
- Pain and suffering,
- Lost wages and future earning capacity,
- Property damage to your vehicle.
We have a combined 35 years’ worth of experience successfully helping clients recover the compensation they need to get justice after a motor vehicle accident in Pompano Beach. Because most cases resolve at the insurance company level, we add value for our clients by the fact that Attorney Cartwright formerly worked for the very insurance companies that we go up against in these cases, so that we can anticipate the tactics they will employ to minimize your compensation award.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motor Vehicle Accidents in Pompano Beach, FL
Most Florida motor vehicle cases proceed on a negligence theory, meaning that we must prove that the other driver was negligent in his or her driving (thus breaching what is known as the driver’s “duty of care”) and that the driver’s actions caused you to suffer injuries that caused damages. In other words, we must show that the other driver caused the accident and you were injured. In some cases, the degree of fault must also be established—for example, if multiple parties were involved in the crash, we must investigate and gather evidence necessary to apportion fault between the various parties.
Depending upon the insurance policy at issue, your insurance rates will usually not increase if you were not at fault for the motor vehicle accident. If you were partially at fault for the motor vehicle accident—which will not hinder your right to recover compensation based on another party’s negligent driving—your rates could go up.
