Broward County is not exactly known for its good drivers. As a result of the poor quality of drivers in the County, it has a reputation as one of the most dangerous places to drive in the country.
We understand how difficult it can be to get caught in an auto accident. We have dedicated our practice to defending and enforcing the rights of people experiencing personal injury in Broward County.
If you have been involved in an auto accident in Broward County, please contact our Personal Injury Attorney to see what we can do for you.
There are two ways in which Florida negligence law is plaintiff-friendly, in regards to car accidents.
1.Florida uses “comparative fault” in negligence cases.
This means that the plaintiff who is partially at fault can still get compensation - not as much as if they weren’t at fault at all. This is an improvement on the previous method of ‘contributory negligence! It used to be that any plaintiff who was even 1% at fault for the accident could not get compensation in a civil court of law because they were “at fault” in the broadest sense of the word.
2. Florida law applies the “joint and several liability”,
meaning that in the cases where more than one person is responsible for the accident they share the compensation. Therefore, the plaintiff is more likely to receive the full amount of recovery.
This is especially important for the cases when the defendant cannot afford to pay the full amount of the jury verdict. The amount is now shared between all the defendants, depending on the extent of their responsibility for the accident.
In order to fully exercise your rights and ensure the state laws are properly executed, reach out to our Broward County personal injury attorney. He will guide you through the process and take away the stress associated with the legalities of your accident.
If you or a loved one have recently been involved in a Broward County car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your past medical expenses, future medical bills, as well as any pain and suffering caused by the accident.
It is incredibly difficult to defend yourself in court without the support of an experienced professional. Experience is key because not only does the plaintiff (the injured person) needs to know the law, but also how and when to exercise it!
If you are filing a suit against an intrinsically powerful entity, like a government agency, it would be almost impossible to reach success without a lawyer.
At our practice we value our clients. We pride ourselves in how successful we are, therefore we operate on a no-win no-fee basis. This means that we will not ask you to pay unless you get paid. Also, our initial consultation is ALWAYS 100% FREE, so you can find out how we can help you without worrying about your finances. We provide our services to take the stress away, rather than to add to it.
Many accidents are unavoidable and many accidents do not give you the right to recover damages. This is because establishing liability is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. It requires a plaintiff to prove that a reasonably prudent defendant could have avoided the accident if she/he had acted different in the given situation.

I was referred to Attorney Ralph Gonzalez to take care of injuries sustained from a car accident where I was rear ended. Not only did they make sure I got the care I needed, but were extremely professional and thorough in communication to explain the processes, follow ups, and expectations. Just closed the case after some time with a bigger settlement than expected, and I couldn't be happier with the treatment/services received from this office. Will 100% recommend to everyone. Thank you!
