The Two Main Routes to Compensation Filing an Insurance Claim vs. Filing a Lawsuit

Insurance claims vs. lawsuits Insurance claims vs. lawsuits

Insurance Claim

The other driver's insurance company is responsible for paying for damage to your vehicle and any injuries sustained in a car accident. However, the other driver's insurance provider may not offer you a proper settlement. Our car accident attorneys can negotiate on your behalf to ensure you are paid a fair amount.

Car Accident Lawsuit

If you are having trouble securing a fair settlement from the insurance provider, our car accident attorneys can file a lawsuit on your behalf. Your car accident lawyer can either take this route to pressure the insurance company to pay a fair settlement, or, if no settlement is reached, the attorney will pursue a jury award.

Knowing When to Accept a Settlement

Insurance companies often take advantage of motorists after car accidents, pressuring them to quickly accept a settlement. A rapid settlement is rarely in your best interest. You need to wait until your treatment is completed before you can have a full understanding of how your injuries have affected your life. Only then should you consider a settlement.

After a car crash, truck accident, or motorcycle accident, it's crucial that you discuss your case with the car accident lawyers of Joe Horrox Law. Using our resources and our medical network, we can advise you and serve as strong advocates for justice on your behalf.

What Is Comparative Negligence? And How Does It Affect Car Accident Cases?

Florida has a specific set of laws which impact the outcome of personal injury cases, such as car accidents. Known as pure comparative negligence, these laws allow you to recover financial compensation from any driver more at fault for the accident than you are. For example:

comparative negligence

Partial Fault = Partial Compensation

Drivers involved in a car accident may both be found to be partially at fault. The driver who is more at fault for the car accident will owe the other motorist damages to cover medical bills, property damage, and more, albeit not the full amount of these losses.

Damages Are Awarded According to Liability

The amount of restitution one party pays the other depends on how much fault each party is determined to have. For example, if the court determines there were $10,000 in damages but determines you are 20 percent at fault for the accident, you will only receive $8,000.

Advocates for People Injured in Auto Accidents

Following a car accident, it's imperative that you speak with the team at Joe Horrox Law. Working with a personal injury lawyer is crucial in achieving a fair settlement or conducting a successful lawsuit resulting in a maximum jury award.

The cause of your car accident could play a major role in your case...

How the Cause of an Accident Affects Your Lawsuit

The exact cause of a car accident is not always easy to identify. What may seem like a simple case of distracted driving may actually involve a defective auto part. In that example, you may have a case against the manufacturer of your vehicle as well as against a careless driver.

The car accident lawyers of Joe Horrox Law have the background and advanced training to investigate the cause of your accident. From there, we can identify the most effective way to collect the level of compensation you deserve for property damage, physical injury, and other losses.

What to Do After a Car Accident

Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

As soon as you can, contact a personal injury lawyer from Joe Horrox Law, serving the greater Daytona Beach area. We can schedule a free legal consultation that's convenient for you to discuss the car accident and your legal options.

Preserve Evidence

If you took photos or videos at the scene of the auto accident, make backups on a cloud, your home computer, or other device. You should also take photos of all paperwork such as medical records and make backups. Smartphones are invaluable when it comes to collecting evidence, but they aren't indestructible - don't let a mishap result in a loss of key evidence.

Don't Talk to Insurance Adjusters

Insurance companies don't have your best interests at heart. In fact, insurance companies are often trying to pay you as little as possible. If any adjusters reach out to you, simply tell them to contact your lawyer. We're here to make sure you collect exactly what you are owed.

Keep Your Doctor Appointments

You might think your injuries are minor, or that you don't need further treatment, but don't make the mistake of ceasing to receive the treatment your physicians believe you need. The extent of your injuries may not be immediately apparent. Meanwhile, the documentation of these visits can be crucial evidence in your case.
