The average settlement for a Fort Lauderdale car accident while pregnant fluctuates widely depending on the severity of the accident, liability, and other factors. Several laws can also impact the outcome of a car accident for a pregnant victim. Typical settlement amounts include coverage of medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and other recoverable damages.
When you work with a lawyer from our firm, we will let you know as we build up your case and pursue any forms of compensation that you may be eligible to collect.
How Liability Affects Your Financial Recovery
Before determining a fair settlement amount, our legal team will work to identify the liable party. You might qualify to hold the at-fault party accountable if you suffered severe injuries. Drunk, distracted, and reckless driving behaviors can all make a driver liable for a car accident and its subsequent damages. Those who engage in negligent driving practices should be held financially responsible.
Determining another party’s liability is not only important to prove your case but also the level of damages you can collect. When reviewing a case, the courts must examine each involved party’s percentage of fault. In states like Florida, having partial fault for an accident does not disqualify you from receiving damages, but it will lower the amount of compensation you receive accordingly.
As such, our team will need to build a case that establishes the other party’s fault and protects you from any blame they may try to put on you. Doing so will help us recover the compensation you need to address your damages.
Examining Possible Recoverable Damages After a Collision
If you suffered an injury in a car accident caused by distracted or otherwise dangerous driving, you have the right to pursue a just outcome. Some forms of damages that you may qualify for after a collision include the following expenses and losses:
- X-rays, exams, surgeries, and other medical procedures
- Prescription medications
- Psychological trauma
- Emergency medical services
- Assistive medical equipment
- Property damage
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Loss of consortium and companionship
Additional damages may be available depending on whether the collision affected your pregnancy in any way. If you are unsure how to proceed after a car accident while pregnant, an attorney from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can offer you guidance and support.
Working with a Lawyer to Support Your Rights
Our team of lawyers is here to investigate the accident, examine the law, and go after all forms of compensation to which you may be entitled. To do so, we must collect various pieces of evidence to establish a liable party. Some common forms of evidence collected from car accident scenes include photos and video footage, witness reports, police reports, and testimonials.
After establishing a liable party, your lawyer will communicate with other parties related to your case on your behalf, whether this requires correspondence with other drivers, insurance agents, law enforcement, witnesses, or anyone else. Our team will also negotiate with other parties and insurance companies to fight for the compensation they may owe you.

Your Right to Justice in Civil Court Expires
If you or a loved one suffers a severe personal injury in Florida, you have the right to take legal action. However, it is helpful to be wary of laws and statutes that can limit your ability to do so.
For example, as the statute of limitations in Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a) shows, you face a limited window for filing a personal injury lawsuit. Contacting our legal team after your accident can help you take full advantage of this filing window.
