Car Accident Lawsuit Process

Medical Examination

The first thing you should do if you’ve been injured is seek medical attention. Your health is the most important thing, so make sure to get the medical care you need. Your physician should make a note of visible scratches, lacerations, or bruises; check for internal damage; and uncover evidence of injuries that aren’t yet evident but may manifest in the future.

Once you have received medical attention, contact an attorney who can help you determine your next steps.


One of your attorney’s most important jobs is investigating your accident and gathering evidence. They can do all of the following.

  • Photograph the accident scene (and acquire video footage if it exists)
  • Review medical records and accident reports
  • Interview eyewitnesses
  • Consult experts

Creating a Demand Letter

Following the investigation, your attorney will make a complete list of your past and future injuries and damages, and determine a dollar figure for each. Then they will draft a demand letter to send to the insurance company of the at-fault party, outlining why the other party was negligent, listing your injuries, and requesting compensation.

Negotiation and Litigation

If an insurance company offers a settlement, Morgan & Morgan will negotiate to make sure you get every penny you are owed. If we can’t reach a fair settlement, we have the resources and ability to take your case to trial.

Because our jury awards are 20 times higher than the pre-trial offers, our opponents know that we are relentless advocates for our clients — and that we can beat them. That gives us more leverage at the negotiating table, leading to larger settlements.

Types of Damages

Car accident injury lawsuits typically seek to recover some or all of the following types of damages:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity (if the injured party is unable to return to work or has diminished earning potential)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses (in cases of wrongful death)
