Texting and driving. Drunk driving. Reckless speeding. These are just a few examples of negligent driving that injure and kill people in car accidents every day. A car accident can negatively impact you for the rest of your life. You could have severe injuries, which result in a financial burden you should not have to carry.
A personal injury lawyer from Dismuke Law can help you hold the negligent party accountable so you can recover damages. When you Ask Dave for help, we will handle your legal case while you focus on recovering.
Damages a Bartow Car Accident Lawyer Can Recover for You
A car accident can rob you of your mobility and physical strength. Your injuries may be so severe that it takes months or years to recover or you may never recover at all. It’s a frightening future to consider as you weigh your legal options to recover compensation.
Our firm will provide you with options to hold the negligent party accountable and recover damages. You can recover two main types of damages: Economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are monetary losses that are verifiable by presenting documentation. Your medical bills and lost income are examples of economic damages.
- Medical bills: Transportation to the hospital via ambulance may have been necessary after the car accident. Perhaps you had to undergo emergency surgery and had to remain in the hospital for several days, during which time you underwent many tests. You may have also likely needed lab work. Your doctor may have sent you home in a wheelchair or on crutches. You may require additional medical assistance at home.
- Lost income: Whether you are temporarily or permanently unable to work because of your injuries, compensation will cover your lost income and future income. You can also recover compensation for benefits you would have received from future promotions, vacations, sick days, and your pension.
Your medical records and income documentation such as pay stubs are useful pieces of evidence we will use to support your claim. Other damages you can recover include the cost of household services, childcare expenses, and property damage.
Non-economic damages are more challenging to prove but include pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of companionship, and loss of enjoyment. Experts such as your doctor, therapist, or counselor can provide testimony in support of these claims.
Sadly, a personal injury is not always survivable. If you lost someone you love in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence, you can also recover wrongful death damages to cover funeral costs, medical bills, and lost income. This is a tragic loss and we offer you and your family our sincerest condolences and support during this time. We want to handle your case on your behalf so you can take the time to grieve.
There are no caps on damages in Florida, and our firm has won multi-million dollar settlements for clients. The value of your claim will depend on which damages apply to you, which we will determine and calculate.
