If you have been hurt in a car or truck accident in Florida, there are many ways your injuries can affect your livelihood, including requiring significant medical treatment and time away from work.
These accidents are some of the most stressful situations a person can endure.
To smooth the process, our personal injury attorney will review your case for free, protect your rights, and pursue the financial compensation you are entitled to after your crash.
While all personal injuries are unique, some of the most common types of damages we pursue on behalf of our clients include a combination of the following expenses.
Medical Expenses Can Quickly Become Overwhelming
When you or someone you love is injured in a traffic collision, your medical bills begin to mount almost immediately.
Even if you have health insurance, and provide your information for each appointment, coverages can vary, and so can the total amount of your care.
Medical expenses may include:
- Ambulance Fees
- Cognitive Therapy
- Doctor Consultations
- In-Home Care Services
- Medical Supplies
- On-Going Care and Treatments
- Permanent Disability Costs
- Physical Therapy
If you were injured by a negligent driver, you should not have to pay these expenses out of pocket. We will outline your complete medical expenses and present them to the at-fault driver’s insurance company for recovery.
Lost Wage Damages Can Disrupt Your Livelihood
When your injuries are so severe that they keep you away from work, your lost wages will quickly become a stressor. We will pursue the compensation for any amount of wage you may have lost due to an inability to return to work right away.
Pain and Suffering Damages When Severe Injuries Occur
Physical and mental distress — including anxiety, trauma, loss of enjoyment in life, and financial burden — are common after severe collisions, which often result in a compromised quality of life.
When pain and suffering apply to your case, we will pursue the non-economic damages that are caused by the injury, which can often be a larger sum than economic damages.
Keep Track of All Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Transportation, towing, and over-the-counter medical supplies can all add up after you have been hurt in a traffic collision. When you are out of work, any expense can cause additional stress and interfere with your ability to heal.
Keep track of each out-of-pocket expense, so we can include them in your claim.
