  • Lost wages if you were forced to miss work while recovering

  • Medical expenses (this includes things like prescription medication, surgeries, physical therapy, etc.)

  • Pain and suffering experienced as a result of your injuries

Even if you don’t think your injuries are serious enough to merit a personal injury lawsuit, you should always discuss your situation with a professional car accident lawyer before making a decision.

What Is the Car Accident Lawsuit Process?

Should you choose to pursue a car accident claim, our team at Politis & Matovina, P.A. can help guide you through the process. Most injury claims follow the same general process:

  1. Our team will help you file a claim and will then have the complaint served on the negligent driver

  2. The other driver will have opportunity to either respond with an offer for compensation, or they may hire their own legal team to represent them

  3. Both parties will begin the discovery process, which involves researching and gathering evidence supporting either side

  4. At this point if a settlement can be reached that is in your favor, you may be able to avoid going to court at all and settle pre-trial

  5. If a settlement cannot be agreed on, our team will take your case to trial and argue for your fair compensation before a judge or jury

  6. Once the judge has ruled on the trial, you may be awarded compensation for your injuries

  7. If compensation is not awarded there may still be opportunity to file an appeal and have your case tried again with a new judge or jury

Our Port Orange car accident lawyers are here to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries after an accident. Don’t wait, call our team today for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

What Is the Average Car Accident Lawsuit Settlement?

There is no guaranteed settlement amount for your claim. In general the more severe your injuries are and the longer it takes for them to fully heal, the higher your settlement may be. This is because more serious injuries often require more intensive medical treatment and can mean being out of work for longer periods of time. When you speak with our attorneys in a free consultation, we can give you a better idea of what the value of your case may be and what types of damages you may be able to pursue compensation for.

How Much Do Car Accident Lawyers Charge?

The good news is that hiring a car accident lawyer to represent you doesn’t have to break the bank. When you hire a car accident attorney from Politis & Matovina, P.A. you are able to retain our services on what is known as a “contingent fee basis.” This means that if we’re not able to recover compensation on your behalf, you won’t owe us any legal fees. Additionally, we deduct our fee as a percentage of the settlement amount that you are awarded once your case is resolved. So you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket.
