Grounds for a Car Accident Lawsuit

Not every car accident victim has grounds to file a lawsuit. Before you take legal action against the at-fault driver in a car accident case, your attorney can help you determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit. 

In Florida, every driver must carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance of at least $10,000. If your injuries and damages are mild, this $10,000 insurance coverage may provide sufficient funds for your accident case. As such, you may not need to file a lawsuit to seek compensation. 

Additionally, Florida personal injury law states that accident victims must sustain serious injuries to have grounds for civil lawsuits. While the term “serious injury” can cover a wide range of injuries, accident victims with the following injuries can typically take legal action:

  • Paralysis
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of a limb

Car accident injuries that are permanent and interfere with one’s ability to perform daily functions generally qualify for accident lawsuits. 

The best way to determine whether you have grounds for a car accident lawsuit is to schedule a consultation with our attorney team. We can examine your case’s details to determine your eligibility for a lawsuit, then guide you through the process. 

How Can a Delray Beach Car Accident Lawyer Help You? 

Working with a qualified personal injury lawyer is an important step in obtaining adequate compensation after a car accident. Whether you have grounds for a lawsuit or not, your attorney can assist you throughout the compensation process and improve your case outcomes. 

At The Law Offices of Chad Nolan Horowitz, P.A., we can provide the following services for your car accident case:

Walk You Through Your Compensation Options

Seeking compensation without an attorney’s assistance can be ineffective. Your attorney can review your case details and determine the most effective method of seeking compensation. 

For example, your lawyer may recommend first filing an insurance claim with the at-fault driver’s insurer. If the claim does not produce sufficient funds, you may then consider a lawsuit. 

Obtain Evidence to Support Your Claim or Lawsuit

Whether you decide to file an insurance claim, take legal action, or both, you will need extensive evidence to support your case. This evidence may include the following:

  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Dashcam footage
  • Videos from nearby security cameras
  • Witness testimonies
  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Damage analyses

Obtaining this evidence yourself can be time-consuming and complicated. However, our attorneys have access to special resources to streamline this process. 

Help You File an Insurance Claim

If the at-fault driver in your accident has insurance, you can file a claim with their insurance company to recover some or all of your damages. Approaching insurance claims strategically is important to your case outcomes. 

Your attorney can communicate with the insurance company on your behalf and take the stress of this process off your shoulders. They can also negotiate with the insurer to increase your payout. 

Represent You In Court

Finally, if you decide to take legal action, your attorney can walk you through this process and represent you in front of a judge.
