What Forms Of Compensation Can You Recover In An Accident Claim?
After your accident, you may seek compensation for your economic and non-economic losses. In some situations, you could even pursue punitive damages against the at-fault party.
Economic and Non-Economic Damages
Under Florida Statutes Annotated § 768.81(1)(b), economic damages include:
- Medical bills — These costs are often the majority of personal injury claims. These bills include current expenses and cost of future medical care. With our expertise and collaboration with trusted doctors, we can accurately estimate what these future costs may look like.
- Lost Wages — Many times clients’ injuries prevent them from working for a time, and also may leave them unable to do the work they were previously doing. Any income lost can be claimed in a personal injury lawsuit.
- Funeral expenses — If a personal injury unfortunately leads to a loved one passing away, you shouldn’t have to stress out about the cost of a funeral. We will help you recover these costs.
- Any other monetary loss you suffered
Non-economic damages are subjective and not easily calculated. These types of losses may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Florida does not impose limits on the amount of economic and non-economic damages you can recover in a civil suit.
