How Much Money Can I Get For My Injuries?
There is no set formula to determine how much you will be able to pursue for a personal injury claim, but there are some factors that we will be able to work with to get a ballpark estimate. We will go through your entire situation with you to determine the severity of your injuries, the nature of the accident, the recovery time, and any other impacts that this accident has had on your life. Once we have created a complete picture, we will be able to assign monetary values to non-economic issues. To read more about some main points of concern when calculating the amount you are owed, read below:
The amount of medical bills that you have already incurred, as well as the amount that we can expect before you are fully recovered, is a major factor in a personal injury case in Florida. We will be able to use this amount as an indication of the severity of your injuries in addition to using them as a foundation of your claims.
Following a significant injury, you will likely be unable to work until medically cleared to do so. This means that you will be losing wages, and we will be sure to fight to have those recovered from the other party. We will tabulate all wages that you have lost up to this point, and if you are still unable to work, will estimate future lost wages as well.
With many accidents, there is damage to personal property. In a car accident, this could be damage to your car, as well as anything else in the vehicle that was damaged or destroyed. In any case, we will determine the repair or replacement values of all of your personal property that was damaged in the incident, and factor that in for damages to be recovered.
In some situations, your injuries may limit your abilities to return directly into your line of work, if at all. In either case, there will be expenses to retrain you and get you back into the workforce. There is no reason for you to be responsible for these payments, since this retraining is a result of your injuries.
Diminished Earning Capacity
If your injuries will affect your ability to earn the same wages that you were able to earn before your accident, then we will work to calculate the amount that you are losing long-term. While this is not as simple as adding up your medical expenses, part of what we do as personal injury lawyers in Florida is ensuring that every facet of the injury is addressed.
Pain and Suffering
Another non-economic factor that we will fight to have you compensated for is the pain and suffering that your accident has caused. This is another issue that is not as simple to calculate as other aforementioned financial considerations, but it is a very real problem and we will find a solution for you.
There are many other aspects of an accident and the consequences that we will consider when finding a fair and just number that we believe you are owed. The sooner you contact us for your initial consultation, the sooner we will be able to work through your circumstances, and begin to fight for what is yours.
Common Personal Injuries
There are many different ways that you can be injured as a result of another party’s negligence, malpractice, or malice. However, below is a list of some common personal injury cases in Florida, and brief explanations of what they entail:
Slip and Fall
A slip and fall injury is one that occurs in a public, government, or semi-public area, and is a result of negligence on behalf of the property owner or manager. You will need to be able to prove that the hazardous situation was either known or should have been known about by the responsible parties, and that they should have addressed it before your injury.
Car accidents are another very common cause of injury. If the other driver caused the accident as a result of reckless, negligent, or irresponsible driving, then we will work with you to determine the facts of your case and identify a course of action to recover damages. Before speaking with an insurance company, contact us to be sure that you are treated properly every step of the way.
There are many other situations that could result in a personal injury that warrant a lawsuit or settlement. If you do not see your injury above, that does not mean that you are not able to seek fair damages for your suffering.
