What Damages Are Available in a Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Accident?

No two personal injury incidents are alike, and everyone will have different forms of damages. Some losses may be extensive, and it can be hard to truly gauge the depth of your losses.

With our injury attorneys, you do not have to figure out what losses stem from the accident or injury and how much they are worth. We can take on this task and make sure you aren’t missing valuable compensation. Some common damages we seek include:

Current and Future Medical Expenses

One of the most immediate concerns for accident victims is physical injuries. Victims can face a wide range of injuries, including catastrophic injuries that can leave them disabled. These injuries often lead to many other losses, not just medical debt.

We can seek compensation for expenses like:

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Emergency care, including bills for the ambulance and the trip to the emergency room
  • Medication
  • Surgeries
  • Office visits
  • Hospital stays
  • Medical supplies and equipment

Not only can we pursue your current medical expenses, but we will make sure to account for future expenses, too.

Pain and Suffering

In addition to the financial impact of your injuries, you may be in a great deal of physical pain. This pain can impact your quality of life and your emotional well-being, causing you to suffer emotionally. Although pain and suffering is not something with a direct, financial value, we can seek compensation for your struggles.

Lost Income and Earning Potential

It can be hard to stay on top of bills after an accident when you are out of work. Some injuries take weeks to recover from, but others take months or even years. Whether you are salaried, hourly, self-employed, or work for tips, we aim to fight for every penny lost during this time.

While some people eventually go back to work after recovering from their injuries, others may not be able to work again, or they may not be able to do their old job anymore. Our injury lawyers will make sure to demand payment for your lost future earning capacity, which can account for raises, promotions, and other benefits you could have gotten had you been able to work.

Mental Anguish and Other Emotional Damages

Injuries and accidents do not just cause physical harm but can severely impact your mental health, even if you make a full recovery. You may be suffering from anxiety, PTSD, depression, or other mental health issues due to a traumatic accident, and it is something we can list as a damage on your claim. You can even seek damages for any scarring and disfigurement you may have suffered in the accident. Although these are physical injuries, these injuries can have profound emotional impacts on victims like you.

Many accident victims have trouble maintaining relationships with their loved ones due to their pain and trauma. For example, children and spouses may miss valuable bonding and support from the injured party, further causing harm to the victim and their loved ones. We do not underestimate the importance of familial relationships, and we make sure you are fairly compensated for these losses.

Our Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyers Handle Everything from Start to Finish

Personal injury cases are a lot for victims to take on by themselves, especially if they have severe and catastrophic injuries from someone’s negligent actions. You do not have to try to handle your case alone. The lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. will take over so you can spend time taking care of your health. We will:

  • Review and evaluate all your damages: Losses in a personal injury case can be high, and it’s our job to identify all the damages you’ve suffered and estimate how much all of these losses are worth.
  • Identify all parties that are liable for your losses: We must show that one or more parties were negligent, and these actions resulted in your losses. You do not have to worry about the legal nuances, we will use our experience and knowledge to do this for you.
  • Gather evidence and draw on our resources to support your case: Evidence can help support our arguments about which party was responsible for the accident and how much you are owed for your injuries and losses. We also have a network of professionals and experts who can support our findings and arguments.
  • Communicate and negotiate with insurers: Dealing with insurers can be stressful, and it’s easy to make a mistake and lose out on compensation. We will handle communications on your behalf, and we will negotiate for compensation that helps with all of your losses.
  • Take your case to trial: Sometimes, insurers do not want to offer a fair settlement, so we will take your case to trial. We have taken hundreds of cases before a jury, and we are prepared to do what it takes to get you a fair result.

Our lawyers carefully select cases to make sure they have the time and attention to devote to you. You deserve a law firm that makes you feel like a priority, so please reach out to our office.

Common Concerns from Personal Injury Victims in Fort Lauderdale

At Freidin Brown, P.A., we deal with many questions from people hurt in Fort Lauderdale. Here are some common questions we receive:

Can I Get Compensation if I Contributed to My Injury or Accident?

Yes, you are able to seek damages in these scenarios. However, Florida follows a modified comparative negligence rule that can impact your case, as outlined in Florida Statutes § 768.81. If you are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident or injury, you may not be able to recover damages.

The other party may try to say your actions put you over this percentage in an attempt to prevent you from seeking damages, or they may just try to reduce how much compensation you are trying to claim. We can help defend you and fight these tactics to get you what you deserve.

Are There Any Deadlines for a Personal Injury Case?

In order to file a lawsuit for damages, you must follow Florida’s statute of limitations for your case type. Most personal injury cases and wrongful death cases will fall under the two-year deadline in Florida Statutes § 95.11 (4)(a), but there may be exceptions to this rule depending on the case.

Our lawyers can review your case and let you know what deadlines apply, how much time you have left, and if any exceptions or extensions may apply.

Can I Sue if a Loved One Died in an Accident or From Their Injuries?

Yes, you can pursue wrongful death damages for a loved one’s passing. We can discuss who is eligible to file a lawsuit, how long you have to act, and what damages you can seek on behalf of the deceased and surviving family members like you.

We understand how painful this whole ordeal is, and we want to shoulder as much of this burden as we can. We can even help you with any probate matters by setting you up with a probate attorney. Let us help you in any way we can.
