If you lose a car accident lawsuit, you may be stuck paying any damages and settlement amounts that are determined through a trial. You will also be responsible for covering any costs associated with the case, such as court fees.
Typically, car accident cases go to trial when one or more parties cannot agree on who is liable. This often means that a driver and their insurance company are not accepting any fault for an accident. In these situations, a case will go to trial where the accident is examined in further detail.

Potential Forms of Compensation
As the victim of negligence, you may have eligibility to receive financial compensation in the form of a settlement. Some potentially recoverable damages that you may collect include the following:
- Vehicle and property damage
- Medical bills and expenses
- X-rays, surgeries, and medical appointments
- Psychological and emotional harm
- Loss of income
- Loss of consortium
- Ongoing therapy and rehabilitation programs
We can calculate your losses so you do not leave any money on the table when negotiating with insurers.
Working with a Lawyer to Pursue Financial Compensation
Several factors often emerge in the analysis of a car accident lawsuit. Liability is a key subject for legal teams and insurance companies to explore, as it often determines who should be held responsible for an accident and its damages.
When multiple drivers are partially responsible for an accident, liability can be harder to establish. In other cases, however, irresponsible driving behaviors make liability easier for legal teams to determine.
Some common examples of reckless driving behaviors that may make a party liable include drowsy driving, drunk driving, distracted driving, and speeding. In cases involving reckless acts, such as drunk driving, one or more parties are often held responsible for recoverable damages.
Affording a Lawyer
While losing a car accident lawsuit is a scary proposition for most people, it is important not to get too far ahead of yourself. Through a thorough investigation of the incident and its damages, legal teams and insurance companies often reach a settlement before taking a case to trial. Similarly, many law firms work on a contingency basis, which means they only accept payment when they reach a settlement.
If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident and you are not sure how to proceed, car accident lawyer can help you. A lawyer with our firm will examine your options and construct a case to reach a settlement on your behalf. They will also defend you in a trial if you are not able to settle with other parties.
Taking Action After a Car Accident
As Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a) shows, victims who sustain a personal injury in an incident that occurred in Florida maintain the right to pursue legal action. What many victims do not know is that the statute of limitations in the state limits the amount of time victims have to do so.
Working with a lawyer can help preserve your rights. Your lawyer will examine all aspects of a car accident to determine who should be held responsible. They will also pursue any potential settlement amounts for you and negotiate with other parties involved in your case.
