Possible Compensation for Your Pinellas Park Car Accident Case
The different types of financial compensation available for your car accident injury case will vary depending on your needs. While the focus of most monetary settlements is on medical care expenses, some damages might apply to your case.
Our attorneys will evaluate your claim and advise you on what to expect when the liable parties and insurance adjusters make a settlement offer.
Past and Future Medical Bills
There is a reason that medical expenses are often the focus of a personal injury case. The cost of medical treatment can escalate, especially for individuals requiring long-term care.
You could be entitled to compensation for expenses related to your ambulance ride, hospitalization, physical therapy, surgical procedures, and care providers.
Finances can be tight after a car accident, especially if you face unexpected medical bills not covered by your insurance. This financial hardship is likely to compound if your injuries prevent you from making a living.
For many people, the injuries that come with a motor vehicle accident could cause them to miss out on weeks or even months of paychecks.
A personal injury claim or lawsuit could replace the wages you have already missed.
Diminished Future Earning Capacity
Some injuries will leave you physically unable to perform the tasks you were previously able to accomplish. If your permanent injuries reduce your ability to earn a living, you could be entitled to compensation for your diminished earning power.
That compensation could be the difference in the amount you will earn in the future compared to what you could have earned had you not suffered an injury.
Pain and Suffering
You are also entitled to seek damages based on your physical agony or pain caused by accident. Physical pain can be difficult to place a dollar value on, but our firm can see how it has affected your life and price it accordingly.
If your car was damaged due to another driver’s negligence, you might be entitled to receive compensation for the repairs. Our lawyers will work with you to determine whether you are eligible for additional compensation.
What Is a Contingency-Fee Agreement?
Our personal injury lawyers accept car accident cases using contingency-fee agreements. A contingency-fee agreement is an arrangement between an accident victim and their auto accident injury attorney.
Instead of paying legal fees upfront or by the hour, the personal injury accident lawyer receives a fee as a percentage of any compensation they recover on the injury victim’s behalf. In other words, these legal fees are contingent on the success of the personal injury case.
Moreover, you will only owe an attorney’s fee if your lawyer can secure an outcome for you. That means you can pursue your case without fear of walking away with nothing but a bill from your attorney.

Types of Vehicle Accidents
The nature of your collision will determine how severe your injuries could be, and those injuries will largely decide the extent of your possible compensation. Understanding the nature of these accidents could be helpful to you as you pursue your compensation case.
A front-end collision, commonly referred to as a head-on crash, occurs when an accident involves the front of a motor vehicle. Often, these accidents occur when the front ends of two vehicles collide with each other.
A side-impact crash involves damage to the side of a motor vehicle. These accidents include T-bone collisions involving one vehicle’s front striking the side of another. They also include broadside collisions that involve the side of two vehicles striking each other.
Rear-end collision is the most common type of motor vehicle accident. These crashes occur when the front of one car strikes the back of another. They often occur at intersections, where the rear driver cannot stop in time to prevent a crash.
Rollover accidents are frequently the most dangerous type of car crash. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these accidents make up 3% of all accidents but 20% of all traffic fatalities. Rollovers occur when a car flips end-over-end and rolls to a stop.
