Harbour Heights Auto Accident Lawyer

Even if you don’t feel like you’re in pain, it’s important to seek medical care and consult an attorney after a car accident- even if the damages appear minor. Studies have shown that people involved in seemingly mild accidents can sometimes sustain injuries that don’t show up for days afterward. For example, side impact collisions often leave no immediately visible physical injury; however, this does not mean you are uninjured.

Victims of an auto accident can experience a variety of severe bodily injuries such as lacerations, brain damage, or broken bones. It is common for car accident victims to also experience smaller injuries like stretched ligaments, bruises, and strained tendons.

An example of a common personal injury car accident victims will experience is whiplash, which occurs when the neck and body are thrown forward and back with force resulting in severe back pain in the following days.

The adrenaline your body releases to protect itself will also mask injuries you may have incurred. That is why it is beneficial to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident, so that any hidden injuries can be found and addressed.

If you leave the scene of an accident and choose not to involve your insurance company or file a police report, you may have difficulty convincing a judge to hear your personal injury claims. Even if you have medical documentation, this may not be enough which is why it is crucial to file a report and seek medical attention immediately.

By having Christine Law evaluate your claim, you could be saving yourself from financial burden by receiving full coverage for medical and vehicle expenses.
Damages in a Florida Automobile Accident

Car accident injury victims experience many direct losses following the accident, especially when it comes to medical expenses. With medical care costs on the rise, treating any type of injury can become expensive very quickly. Even a minor injury can require a trip to the emergency department, medication, diagnostic tests, physical therapy follow-up visits, and more. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, it is vital to have an attorney who will fight for you and consider all of your past, present, and future medical bills.
Lost Income

Injuries can often sideline you from work for a period of time, or in some cases, forever. If you’re struggling to pay medical bills and other personal expenses, missing even one day’s wages can be detrimental to your financial stability.

If you have to miss work because of injuries or medical treatments, you should be compensated for that loss of income. If your injuries are permanent and cause problems that make it so you can’t work anymore or have to take a lower-paying job, you may be able to get compensation for future earnings you will lose.
Property Damage

After another party causes your car to crash, you shouldn’t have to worry about the high cost of repairs. You deserve compensation for both the vehicle repair costs and diminished value.
Getting Compensation for Pain and Suffering

Though it may be hard to quantify, pain and suffering is a very real thing that you might experience after an accident. In a Florida car accident claim, you are entitled to compensation for things like future medical bills and lost wages. The cost of a car accident does not stop at medical bills and lost wages. People often suffer excruciating pain, permanent disability, and loss of mobility.

You can be compensated for pain and suffering in Florida through a negligence claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company. Your attorney will divide your damages into economic damages (like medical bills, lost wages) and non-economic damages (such as pain and suffering or loss of quality of life).
Two Types of Pain and Suffering

Your attorney will construct your case by first evaluating the pain and suffering you have endured, both physically and mentally. This evaluation is based on what you tell your attorney as well as any documentation you may have to support your claim.
Physical pain and suffering encompass the physical pain you experienced during recovery, surgery, rehabilitation, and any ongoing physical pain.
Mentally and emotionally suffering from your car accident can refer to anguish, or trauma, you experienced (such as PTSD), along with any fear and depression you sustained after the accident.
