What types of damages should you pursue after an accident?

Your car accident happened without warning, leaving you with unexpected expenses and other complications that have had a significant impact on your life. You had no idea you were about to encounter an event that would leave you with serious injuries, damage to your personal property and financial loss. With no time to prepare, this type of event can be devastating. 

Florida car accident victims often find it beneficial to seek damages for their losses through a personal injury claim. Sometimes, they may get a settlement offer from the insurance company, but these offers often do not reflect the true value of a claim. If you are suffering because of the reckless or negligent actions of another person, you may have grounds to seek damages and compensation through a personal injury claim

All of the damages you deserve

It's not always easy to know exactly how much your car accident claim could be worth. You know how much your medical bills are, but what if you need additional help in the future? What if you are not able to return to the same type of job you had in the past? These are all legitimate concerns that will affect your ability to recover and move forward. Depending on your injuries and other factors, you may be able to pursue the following types of damages:

  • Disfigurement
  • Permanent impairment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of ability to enjoy life
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of reputation or companionship
  • Emotional duress

These are examples of the non-economic damages you may be able to pursue through your personal injury claim. It may seem impossible to assign a dollar amount on what you've been through, but it is reasonable and even necessary to hold liable parties accountable for your suffering. There are ways to calculate approximate damages and decide how much you should ask for in your claim. 

What you need for recovery

It's certainly difficult to pick up the pieces after an accident, especially if you are dealing with serious emotional and physical consequences. You do not have to walk through the aftermath alone, but you can seek the support and guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you at every step. 

This assistance will prove beneficial as you seek to hold liable parties accountable and fight for the full amount of damages you need and deserve. If you are unsure of where to start, you may want to take the initial step of getting an evaluation of your case.
