Financial Compensation You Can Recover After A Distracted Driving Accident
A collision with a distracted driver can leave you with serious, even life-threatening, injuries and the short- and long-term medical bills that treatment can generate. Commonly reported distracted driving car accident injuries can include:
- Whiplash and concussion
- Head and back injuries
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Broken and fractured bones
- Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
When our Lehigh Acres car accident lawyer represents you, they request compensation for the costs of your prescribed treatment plan. Depending on the extent of your injuries, recovery can include the cost of emergency room treatment, hospitalization, and assistive medical devices. We also make sure no treatment-related costs are overlooked including over-the-counter and prescription medications, rehab, and various types of therapy.
You Can Recover More Than Medical Bills From The Distracted Driver
In addition to ensuring your accident-related medical care is covered by the at-fault driver, our legal team also requests compensation for the following damages:
- Past and future income loss
- Property damage or total loss
- Diminished property value
- Disability or disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional trauma
If you or a loved one suffered a major or catastrophic injury, it could prevent you from engaging in the lifestyle and activities you previously enjoyed. We also help you recover compensation if your quality of life is diminished due to the accident.
Your Family Is Entitled To Financial Recovery For The Loss Of A Loved One
We know nothing can atone for the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one. We also know their loss can have a financial impact on your family. Our law firm’s wrongful death lawyer will help your family recover damages from the at-fault driver or their insurance company.
Wrongful death damages can include your loved one’s funeral and burial expenses and the loss of their financial and domestic contributions to your family. You can also recover compensation for loss of consortium, companionship, and guidance.
What You Need To Know About Florida’s Statute Of Limitations
The timing of your lawsuit is an important part of your case. Even while we fight for a favorable settlement, we fight to ensure your potential lawsuit is filed on time. In general:
- Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) gives you four years from the date the accident occurred to meet the personal injury statute of limitations
- Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) gives you two years from the date of a loved one’s demise to meet the wrongful death statute of limitations
If the filing deadline expires, you may not be able to file your lawsuit at all. If you do manage to file your lawsuit too late, the at-fault driver’s representatives might request its immediate dismissal. If their request is granted, you will have no further legal avenue to seek compensation. With enough notice from you, our distracted driving accident attorney will ensure the appropriate filing deadline is met.
