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

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.
