Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyers
You may have a personal injury claim if you were injured due to someone else’s negligence, carelessness or recklessness. And, if you do, you can seek compensatory damages or money that compensates you for what was lost due to your injury. The types available depend on your situation.
If you were injured in an accident, you may suffer from short-term or long-term injuries. If your injuries are severe, your quality of life may be affected for a long time. Perhaps you have had to miss work because of your injuries, or perhaps you cannot even continue in the same job or occupation.
Common Types Of Compensatory Damages Available In Florida
- Medical expenses, including the cost of present medical care as well as the predicted cost of care you may need in the future.
- Income such as the loss of current income and the loss of future potential income
- Emotional distress such as the pain and suffering you experienced as a result of your injuries
Punitive damages are sometimes an option if the defendant’s behavior was particularly egregious. Punitive damages are not designed to compensate you for your injuries, but to punish the defendant for bad or careless behavior.
How Can A South Florida Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?
If you have been injured on a construction site, in an auto accident, or slip and fall, you are unlikely to get the full compensation for your injuries and other damages that you are entitled to if you represent yourself.
Insurance companies tend to make lowball settlement offers in hopes of making a claim go away quickly and cheaply. That means you may not be fairly or adequately compensated for your medical bills and other expenses resulting from your accident if you accept a settlement offer without getting legal help.
An experienced personal injury attorney can help you negotiate a fair settlement or take your case to trial if necessary to fight for the compensation you deserve.
