Personal Injury Damages

When an accident occurs, it often causes pain and suffering and can even result in a life altering injury, such as a spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, back and neck pain, broken bones, and paralysis. Some of the first expenses experienced are ambulance fees and medical treatment. Depending on the level of your injury, you may be unable to work.

As the expenses begin to build and the weight of not being able to work increases, it can be overwhelming financially. Often, with a personal injury case, when your injury resulted from negligence on another’s part, you are entitled to seek compensation for certain damages, including:

  • Ambulance fees
  • Hospital fees
  • Doctor fees
  • Medical devices
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Present and future lost wages
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Wrongful death

Hire an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

In order to receive the compensation you deserve, it must first be proven that negligence, recklessness, or carelessness from another party played a part in your injury. This will require detailed research and a knowledgeable lawyer. It is important to know that there is a statute of limitations on when a case can be opened according to Florida law, which is why it’s important to contact an attorney soon after your injury.
