How Much Is My Naples Rollover Injury Claim Worth?
There is no flat rate of compensation for getting injured in a rollover accident. Every person’s injury claim is different. Your injury claim will not be identical to another person’s hurt in the same crash, even if they were in the same car with you.
We will need to talk to you and investigate your situation before our lawyers can calculate how much compensation they can pursue for you. The money damages you can go after in any personal injury case reflect how much harm you suffered.
Both economic and non-economic losses caused by the defendant’s carelessness can qualify. The categories and amount of compensation you can go after will depend on the facts of your situation. Here are some of the kinds of economic and non-economic money damages we might be able to seek in a rollover accident injury claim:
If you missed time from work while recuperating from your injuries and medical treatment, you might have also missed out on paychecks. Salaried and hourly wage earners can include lost wages in their injury claims. Also, self-employed individuals can seek to recover their lost income.
Diminished Future Earning Capacity
You might have to take a lower-paying position or work fewer hours if you experience ongoing problems from your injuries. Chronic back pain or headaches can make it challenging to perform certain job tasks. A loss of strength or stamina could force you to curtail your time on the job. A severe head injury could cause memory and processing difficulties.
The reasonable cost of the medical care you needed to treat your injuries can be a part of your claim. Here are a few examples of medical bills that are usually compensable:
- Emergency room
- Diagnostic procedures
- Lab work
- Blood transfusions
- Prescription drugs
- Physical therapy
We cannot include every possible medical expense in your claim. You might have other medical costs not listed here that we can add to your injury claim, though.
Future Medical Treatment
Your doctor might anticipate that you will need additional medical intervention to maximize your healing. We could include the estimated expense of these procedures.
You could have required surgery that necessitated follow up treatments and months of recovery.
Merely paying your medical expenses and lost income does not make you whole. When you experience a severe injury, you likely have additional losses that do not always cost you money out-of-pocket.
Non-economic losses can include things like:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
In a wrongful death action, we might be able to go after additional compensation on behalf of the legal beneficiaries.
Why Should I Work with a Lawyer from This Firm?
The liability insurance company for the at-fault party is likely a multi-billion-dollar corporation. They have thousands of employees, many of whom work hard all day long trying to find ways to pay injured people as little money as possible.
If you work with an attorney from our firm on your injury claim, you will not have to fight the huge corporation on your own.
How Can I Afford the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine?
We handle most personal injury cases, including rollover accidents, on a contingency-fee basis. This fee arrangement makes it possible for people to get legal help when they get hurt because of someone else’s negligence. The basic principles of contingency fees are these:
- You pay no upfront legal fees.
- We pay the litigation costs like the court filing fees.
- We work hard for months or longer without getting paid a cent during that time.
- When you win your claim, we get reimbursed the expenses we paid on your behalf.
- Also, we receive a percentage of the settlement proceeds or court award as our legal fees.
You do not have to be rich to get our help on your rollover collision injury claim.
Is There a Deadline for Filing a Lawsuit After a Rollover Crash?
Yes, Florida limits the amount of time people have to take legal action for personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits. Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) generally gives you four years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
If your close relative died from injuries received in a rollover crash, Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) says that the wrongful death lawsuit must get filed in two years, generally. If you miss the deadline for filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, you can forever lose the right to go after compensation for your losses.
