Top Car Accident Settlements and Payouts in Florida
One of the top questions we get when people are looking to retain our services as their Florida car accident attorney is ‘how much will I get for my car accident settlement?‘ That is a difficult question to answer as there are many factors that go into determining compensation amounts for different car accidents. Here at Cloud Law Firm, we fight our hardest to get our clients the most favorable settlement payout amount possible. We care for our clients and understand that there are many costs incurred when someone is involved in a serious car accident, from medical bills to the replacement of broken or lost items. Below we share some of our firm’s Florida car accident settlements and payouts. The average car accident settlements shared on this page from our Florida law firm range from $125,000-$500,000. The payout number can vary quite widely from this as well, however.

What Factors Determine The Amounts For a Car Accident Settlement Payout?
If you have been injured in a car accident and are looking for a settlement to help cover costs incurred due to the accident you should know that a settlement is possible any time between the time of the accident and a trial verdict. There are several factors that determine settlement payouts in car accident cases, including but not limited to:
- Severity of injury
- Present & future medical expenses
- Loss of wages & future earning capacity
- Circumstances of the accident
- The insurance companies – yours & theirs
- Pain & suffering
- Whether the victim has a spouse, children, or other family members
- The actions of the truck driver involved
- The nature of the materials and/or freight being transported
Because each car accident is different, only a skilled car accident attorney will discuss with you how these factors, among others, increase the value of your claim.
Our Florida Car Accident Settlements
$1,100,000 – Motor Vehicle Accident (See Image Above)
This was a confidential settlement involving a client who was badly injured in a serious motor vehicle crash. We recovered $1 million liability limits and $100,000 underinsured limits for our client.
$500, 000 – T-Bone Car Accident Settlement
The at-fault driver ran a stop sign in front of our client, causing our client to T-bone the at-fault driver. The at-fault driver was untruthful about how the accident occurred and was not interested in any sort of settlement for our client, but the electronic data downloaded from his vehicle proved our client’s version of how the crash occurred. The insurer for the at-fault party made no pre-suit offers to our client. We filed suit and ultimately recovered the full payout of $500,000 insurance policy limits, including the full limits from two insurers for the at-fault party and the full limits from our client’s own uninsured/underinsured motorist carrier.
$435,000 – Rear-Ended Car Accident Settlement
Our client was stopped at a red light when she was rear-ended by a commercial vehicle. The client initially hired a big-name law firm to represent her with her Florida car accident lawsuit. That firm failed to obtain any results during the year following the accident. Once our client retained our legal services, we immediately filed a personal injury lawsuit. Within six months, we negotiated a $435,000 settlement for our client, which she accepted.
$325,000 – Side-Swiped Car Accident Settlement
Our client was side-swiped in an intersection. The insurer for the at-fault party made no pre-suit offers to our client, to help with their injuries and recovery. Here at Cloud Law Firm, we filed suit and ultimately recovered the full payout of $250,000 policy limits from the insurer of the at-fault party. We also recovered another $75,000 settlement from our client’s underinsured motorist carrier, who accepted our car accident settlement proposal rather than face trial.
$300,000 – Multi-Vehicle Collision Car Accident Settlement
Our client was involved in a car accident where they were rear-ended at an intersection, in a multi-car collision. The insurer for the at-fault party in the collision made no pre-suit offers. Our Florida law firm filed a personal injury lawsuit and ultimately recovered the full payout of $300,000 policy limits for our client to help with their recovery after the accident.
$280,000 – Intersection Car Accident Settlement
While driving our client was t-boned while in the middle of an intersection. By retaining our legal services we were able to recover policy limits of $280,000 for our client, including a portion from the at-fault driver and a portion from the underinsured motorist carrier.
$276,000 – Parking Lot Car Accident Settlement
Our client was involved in a low-speed motor vehicle collision that occurred in a parking lot, where they suffered injuries. The pre-trial settlement offers were far too law so our law firm took the case to trial. We were able to recover a jury verdict of $253,000 plus an extra amount to cover all litigation costs for our client. The recovery was far more than the pre-trial trial offers made by the insurer for the at-fault parties.
$175,000 – Rear-Ended Car Accident Settlement
Our client was rear-ended and suffered a shoulder injury. The insurer for the at-fault party made no pre-suit offers to help with medical bills incurred from the accident. Our law firm filed a personal injury lawsuit and ultimately recovered the full $100,000 policy limits from the at-fault insurer, and an additional $75,000 from our client’s underinsured motorist carrier.
$125,000 – Passenger Car Accident Settlement
Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was t-boned while in the middle of an intersection. Within a few weeks of being retained, our Florida law firm was able to recover the full $100,000 bodily insurance policy limits for the at-fault driver as well as the full $25,000 underinsured policy limits for the driver of the vehicle in which our client was a passenger.
