What Damages Can I Recover after an Orlando Car Accident?
If the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine works with you on your Orlando collision case, we will collect the evidence necessary to document your expenses and losses. This may allow us to recover an appropriate payout on your behalf by filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
The damages you may be able to recover depend on the expenses and losses you endured and will likely endure. This may include:
Economic damages are the current and future losses and expenses you incur because of the accident and your injuries. They could include things like:
- Medical costs
- Support and care
- Lost wages
- Car repairs
- Out-of-pocket expenses
Non-economic damages are the intangible losses you experience due to the accident.
The most common type of intangible loss endured because of a crash is pain and suffering.
Note that, per Florida Statutes §627.737, you may have to prove that your injuries pass a severity threshold in order to pursue non-economic damages.
Wrongful Death Losses
If your family lost a member because of fatal injuries in an Orlando traffic accident, Florida Statutes §768.21 might allow you to claim wrongful death damages.

The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Could Help You File a Fault-based Case
Florida has no-fault laws that require each driver to maintain $10,000 of personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. You will likely start your case by filing a claim with your PIP policy regardless of who caused your accident. PIP may cover your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages.
In some circumstances, you may be able to file a fault-based claim or a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party in addition to your PIP claim. This may be possible in situations where:
- Your damages exceed the $10,000 PIP coverage limit.
- Your injuries pass the serious injury threshold defined by Florida Statutes §627.737.
Our team can help you determine your legal options for pursuing compensation.

How Could an Accident Reconstruction Expert Help My Collision Case?
The attorneys from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine know the types of evidence we need to prove that negligence occurred, caused the collision, and led to your injuries. An accident reconstruction expert may help confirm your version of events and prove the other driver is liable for your losses.
An accident reconstructionist uses the known facts of an accident to work backward to determine what happened. The evidence they may use to do this include:
- The details of the scene, often based on a careful survey of the area
- Tire marks and other evidence recorded in the police report
- The damage to each involved vehicle
- Weather and road condition information
- The injuries of everyone involved
- Any other evidence available
The accident reconstruction experts may be able to determine where the impact occurred, who violated traffic laws, and if there were contributing causes, such as speeding.
In some cases, accident reconstruction provides us with the evidence necessary to recover compensation for our client.
How Soon Do I Need to Decide if I Want to Sue the Other Driver?
We may be able to secure compensation for you by demanding a fair and just settlement from the applicable insurance companies. However, if the insurance companies refuse to make you a fair settlement offer, we can file a lawsuit and take your case to trial.
Generally, Orlando crash victims have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit under Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a) and two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit under Florida Statutes §95.11(4)(d).
Some exceptions can reduce this time, though. We recommend you act quickly to protect your right to sue.
