How Are Damages Calculated in a Car Accident?
In a car accident, or in any personal injury case, an injured person has the right to be compensated for (1) any bills associated with your medical treatment, (2) lost wages or income due to time missed from work, (3) any property damage, and (4) pain and suffering. However, in Florida an injured person is only eligible to receive compensation for pain and suffering for an injury that results in any of the following:
- Significant loss of an important bodily function
- Permanent injury
- Significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement
Additionally, if an injury results in death, survivors can receive compensation for pain and suffering on the part of the deceased.
Our Car Accident Representation
The insurance company will begin building a case as soon as it is notified of a car accident. Insurance adjusters will try to gather evidence in order to minimize your claim. Therefore, delaying the decision to hire an attorney will only benefit the insurance company.
At Reeder & Nussbaum, we know that evaluating the true value of your claim requires a thorough assessment of the accident and your injuries. Our firm will look at any recorded statements and police reports, as well as photographs of the vehicles and the injuries that you have suffered. We will also obtain a medical prognosis from a physician in order to understand the extent and cause of your injuries.
