How We Value Your Recoverable Damages
Calculating the financial impact of a car accident can be challenging on your own. Simply gathering your full range of medical records from every treatment facility and provider can be difficult.
Your lawyer can help you prove the cost of your medical and other recoverable damages after your Panama City car accident, including:
- Medical bills
- Income loss
- Vehicle repairs
- Vehicle replacement
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
Our team is careful to evaluate the value of your current and future medical bills and income loss. By doing so, we help ensure you aren’t left with out-of-pocket expenses and that your lawsuit is not undervalued or underpaid. Once we determine the value of your injuries and their related expenses, we use that number to steer the negotiation process.

Your Evidence File Can Prove the Cause of Your Accident
When you are ready to seek compensation, our team can help! We will help you carefully gather and organize your evidence and build your case while you focus on recovering your health.
A Panama City lawyer familiar with car accident cases in our office can use evidence to prove the at-fault driver’s negligence and your right to financial compensation.
We Can Utilize the Police Report
Since we were not present when it occurred, we rely on evidence to understand what happened and who was at fault. Because you were hurt in the accident, Florida Statutes §316.066 requires you to file a police report.
This official report tells the at-fault party’s representatives and us the story of the accident. It is one of the first pieces of evidence we will request for your evidence file.
Your Florida car accident report contains a wealth of information we can use to support your case.
From it, we can acquire contact information for:
- The at-fault driver
- His insurance company
- Accident witnesses
- The investigating officer
Your car accident report will also contain details on the cause of the accident, anything that distracted or impaired the at-fault driver, and any tickets or violations he may have received.
It will also state:
- The accident’s date and location
- The investigative officer’s notes
- Accident scene diagrams
- Points of impact and vehicle damage
Request your car accident report as soon as it is processed and becomes available. Bring a copy to a case evaluation team member and save one for your personal records.
Additional Evidence We Include in Your Case File
When we build your case file, our goal is to include information that prompts the at-fault driver and their insurer to opt for a financial settlement versus a lengthy trial. To drive settlement negotiations in your favor, we include the following evidence:
- Medical records
- Employment records
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Witness statements
As part of our investigation into the accident, we might also uncover police-generated photos and available surveillance or smartphone video footage. We go the extra mile to ensure you have the evidence you need to fight for the financial recovery you deserve due to the at-fault driver’s negligence.
Your Role in Settlement Negotiations
When we negotiate with the at-fault driver or their insurer, our goal is to ensure you get the settlement you deserve. You, not us, will make the final decision to accept or reject each offer you receive. Your role in the negotiation process is critical.
Once you accept an offer, you will sign a waiver agreeing to end your case and seek no further compensation in the future. Because a signed settlement agreement is binding, we make sure your lawsuit is valued accurately. We also help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each offer and reach an informed decision.

We Will Represent You in Court, if Necessary
While most personal injury cases like yours are resolved with a financial settlement, we will fight for you in court if it becomes necessary. To safeguard your ability to file your lawsuit, we make sure you comply with Florida’s statute of limitations.
In general, you have:
- Four years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a)
- Two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, according to Florida Statute §95.11(4)(d)
Our team will help you define and meet the statute of limitations and explain how the age of passengers in your car and other factors might affect the filing deadline.
