How is a Car Accident Case Resolved in Florida?

Jacksonville Personal Injury Lawyer


Many people may assume that in order to obtain compensation after an auto accident in Florida, you must be involved in a trial in court. However, in reality, most cases are resolved before they ever get to the trial phase – especially in car accident cases. The following are some of the ways that Williams Law can help you receive compensation for your losses after a crash.

  • Insurance claim – Florida law requires that every driver carry a certain amount of personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. This policy provides coverage for your medical expenses and lost income up to your policy limits whether or not you caused the accident. If your policy is enough to cover your losses, you may not have to file a claim in court at all. However, this is not to say that the insurance process isn’t complicated. You will have to prove your injuries and we can negotiate with your insurer so you receive the settlement you deserve.
  • Legal claim – If you have suffered severe injuries, you have the right to seek the additional compensation you need by filing a claim for personal injury damages against the party that caused your accident. This still does not mean you will end up in trial, however. The litigation process involves many steps and many points at which the case may be favorably resolved.

First, after the evidence gathering stage, we can use all of the evidence we have to negotiate a settlement agreement with the party that caused your crash. A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract that states the other party agrees to pay you a certain sum. Negotiations can be ongoing throughout the litigation process and you can agree to settle anytime before trial. Alternative dispute resolution techniques can be used – such as mediation or arbitration – to encourage an out-of-court settlement that covers your losses.
