    Answered . There are specific pleadings your attorney can file in an effort to obtain attorney's fees and costs on top of any eventual jury award. Other than that, unless there is a contract between you and the defendant that states the prevailing party is entitled to attorney's fees, the damages in most civil actions in Florida include attorney's fees and costs as part of the total award and will then be deducted pursuant to the Retainer Agreement you signed when you retained your attorney. Good Luck!
