What Is the Average Settlement for a Car Accident in Clearwater?
Clearwater car accident settlement amounts can range from thousands to millions of dollars. There is no reliable data that shows the average settlement for a car accident case in this Florida city. The terms of most car accident settlements are private, so there is no publicly available information from which averages can be drawn.
Jury verdicts are public record, but most cases settle before trial. Additionally, the amount of a settlement is so case-dependent that averages aren’t useful. For example, a jury verdict in a Clearwater car accident case involving broken bone and minor abrasions provides no information about how much a Clearwater case involving traumatic brain injuries might be worth.

Should I Get a Lawyer After a Car Accident in Clearwater?
Yes, we recommend hiring a Clearwater auto accident lawyer after a car accident. As a law firm, we see first-hand how clients that work with us are able to obtain more compensation than when they were representing themselves while also reducing stress.
At Gomez Trial Attorneys, we know insurance companies; we negotiate with them daily. And insurance companies know us. Our firm has a reputation among insurance companies as a strong firm willing to take cases to trial when needed. This results in insurance companies giving better financial offers when we represent clients than when clients represent themselves.
We know that after a car accident, you may be unsure if you want to hire an attorney or not. You may simply want to better understand your legal options and the benefits of working with Clearwater car accident lawyers. We understand and offer a free, no-obligation case evaluation to fill this need.
How Much Does an Attorney Charge for a Car Accident Lawsuit in Clearwater?
At Gomez Trial Attorneys, we represent our Clearwater car accident victims on a contingency fee basis. This means that you pay no legal fees unless we obtain compensation on your behalf through settlement or trial. At that time, we take a percentage of your recovery as compensation. Read more about contingency fees.
We also provide our initial consultation free of charge. Through contingency fees and free consultations, we are able to help clients who otherwise could not afford to pay for a personal injury attorney out-of-pocket pursue justice in their car accident case.
How Do I Find the Best Clearwater Car Accident Lawyer?
Start by looking for a personal injury law firm that only represents the victims in car accidents, not insurance companies. Look for a firm that focuses on personal injury and not a combination of practice areas like business and personal injury.
This helps ensure you hire a firm that specializes in representing people like you. While some car accident cases are, simple many are legally and factually complex. Working with a personal injury-focused law firm can impact outcomes.
Typically, it is best to hire a firm that has multiple attorneys and support staff. This way you are not reliant on a single person. Additionally, if the case goes to trial, it is virtually impossible for a single attorney without support to be effective. This is why some firms will pass your case off if it goes to trial.
Some suggested questions to ask during your initial consultation include:
- Can you tell me about your and your firm’s experience working on similar cases?
- How long has your firm been in business?
- What types of cases does your firm take on?
- Does your firm have the financial and staff resources to take on complex cases?
- What do you think the strengths and weaknesses of my case are?
- What are your fees?
- Who will be handling my case?
- How can I get in touch with you if I have questions?
- I cannot afford my necessary medical care out of pocket, can you help me obtain medical liens?
- What will happen to my case if it needs to go to trial? Will your firm represent me or refer me to a different law firm?
- How can I help my case succeed?
We know that you do not deal with personal injury lawsuits every day the way we do, so there are no silly questions. Legal competency is essential, but it is also important that you feel comfortable with the firm you hire.
