Car accidents happen every day in all parts of Florida. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) reports that in 2018 there were over 403,000 crashes statewide. More than 24,000 of those were in Duval County alone. Thousands of people suffer injuries in these crashes and many even die. If you were in a car wreck that was not your fault, you should not have to pay for the costs to treat your injuries, including internal bleeding.
The team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine wants to help you seek compensation. If another driver caused your accident, they should be the ones to pay the costs. Internal bleeding can be very costly, even fatal. It is not right that you should pay thousands of dollars if the accident was not your fault.

You Have Options
You have suffered because of your accident, and you may have already paid thousands in damages. If someone else’s negligent behavior caused the car accident, you have a right to pursue awards for those costs. Some of the damages you can include in your lawsuit are:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Hospital fees
- Medical equipment
- Property damage
You can also seek compensation for things like diminished earning capacity, which covers a future loss of income if you can no longer do that job you did before the accident. Of course, if the accident damaged or destroyed your car, you can recoup the costs to repair or replace it. You can also seek costs to repair or replace any other property that the accident damaged.
Damages that do not have an easily determined dollar value can also be a part of your lawsuit. These include things like inconvenience, emotional distress, anxiety, and pain and suffering. Recovery from major injuries can mean being immobile, or worse, hospitalized. Your daily life must go on. Things like buying groceries, cleaning your house, and getting your children to school are all things that need to get done. You may need to hire help to get everything done, or a family member may need to miss work to pick up what you cannot do. These are all costs that you can pursue with a lawsuit.
You can file a lawsuit on behalf of a family member who died because of their injuries. If your loved one died because of a car accident that was not their fault, you can recover damages for the suffering they endured before passing. You can also seek damages such as loss of companionship.

Sometimes the weather or road conditions play a factor in an accident. Often, though, negligent and irresponsible drivers cause accidents. There are many actions that are negligent while driving. Things like using a mobile phone, talking with passengers, eating, drinking, or tuning the radio can all cause a driver to take their eyes or mind off the road.
Other actions that constitute negligence include things like disobeying traffic laws, like running stop signs and changing lanes without signaling. We all know driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is irresponsible, too. If the other driver in your accident was doing any of these things or anything else that was irresponsible and caused the accident, you can seek compensation from them.

Internal Bleeding Is a Serious Injury
You can suffer injuries anywhere on your body after a car accident. Broken bones, contusions, and concussions can all easily happen, and they can be readily apparent. Internal bleeding is different. It happens inside your body, so you may not even realize it is happening at first.
Abdominal trauma, which can happen in a car accident, can cause internal bleeding. If an object—like the steering wheel or an airbag—hits you with enough force, you may suffer organ damage, which could result in internal bleeding.
An injury that causes internal bleeding can be especially frightening and costly. It can be difficult to discover the bleeding, and once doctors do discover the bleeding, it can be hard to pinpoint and treat it. Some potential complications from internal bleeding can include sepsis and hemorrhaging. These are major health concerns. They can even lead to death. Internal bleeding may require swift emergency treatment. That can be costly, scary, and traumatic.
If you suffered internal bleeding because another driver was being negligent, you deserve compensation. You have a right to speak with a Jacksonville internal bleeding caused by a car accident lawyer before making any decisions about whether to file a lawsuit.

Do Not Delay
Every car accident is different. That means the injuries that drivers suffer and the property damage that results are never quite the same from one accident to another. What that means legally is that the knowledge of a lawyer can be helpful. The team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can offer individualized guidance to fight for you.
If you are considering filing a lawsuit, you should not delay getting started. The state of Florida allows for four years of time after an accident to file a lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11. If you miss the time frame, the court may dismiss your case. You may not have any options for compensation if the statute of limitations runs out. If you are filing a lawsuit on behalf of a loved one who died because of their injuries, you have two years after their death to file.
