Damages for a Fort Lauderdale Car Accident
When prospective clients call us after a Fort Lauderdale car accident, the first question they often ask is, “What damages can I recover?” The potential damages you can collect for a car accident could be extensive, and it is difficult to list them all, as every case is so unique.
What we can tell you is that FL § 768.28 allows car accident victims to recover compensation both for economic damages and for noneconomic damages. Economic damages refer to losses involving actual monetary depletion. They include items such as:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Vehicle damage
- Car rental cost
- Towing costs
In short, anything that requires you to spend money or prevents you from collecting money you otherwise would have earned is economic damage. In Florida, you can also receive compensation for noneconomic damages, and there is no limit to how much money you can collect for such losses. Noneconomic damages are those that cannot be quantified in dollar terms, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may use one of several valuation methods to assign a dollar amount to your noneconomic damages. No matter what methodology we use, we always fight to get our clients the most money possible.
What About PIP Insurance?
Many Florida drivers believe that they can only recover money from their own insurance company, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. While it is true that FL § 627. 7407 requires you first to file a claim with your own insurer, you can go after the other party and their insurance company for all damages above what your PIP policy pays.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you with filing a PIP claim as well as make sure the other driver and their insurer pay you what you deserve.
