The damages you can collect for a car accident depend on your injuries and other losses, but they may include medical bills, lost wages, and noneconomic damages. Our team can help you recover the damages you deserve.
Economic vs. Noneconomic Car Accident Damages
After a Miami car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for any damages you suffered. The law separates car accident damages into two categories. Economic damages refer to losses that involve actual monetary depletion. An easy way to think about economic damages is that if it involves a bill or a check, it is almost certainly an economic damage. Examples include:
- Medical bills
- Prescription drugs
- Medical device costs
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Vehicle damage
These are all economic damages because they refer either to expenses you have to pay or earnings you have to forfeit. In other words, they all involve monetary loss. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine fights aggressively to help you recover all of your economic losses after a Miami car accident.
Noneconomic damages do not involve actual monetary loss. The most common noneconomic damages suffered in car accidents include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
Unlike many states, FL § 766.118 does not cap noneconomic damages in car accident claims. For that reason, it is critical to work with a lawyer who has a strong and proven track record of winning substantial awards for their clients. When it comes to noneconomic damages, the difference between a “great” settlement, a “good” settlement, and a “so-so” settlement could be thousands or even millions of dollars.
Recovering Damages After the Loss of a Loved One
If your loved one died in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine will file a wrongful death claim on your behalf. We can help you recover compensation for the following and more:
- Funeral expenses

You Have a Limited Time to Act
The Florida statute of limitations on filing a car accident injury claim is typically four years under FL § 95.11, while the time limit to take legal action for wrongful death is typically two years. However, both of these timelines may be shorter or longer depending on a variety of factors, so it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to learn your options and obligations. If necessary, the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can file a quick claim to keep the timeline from expiring.
