- Car Accidents and other motor vehicle accidents that result in serious injury.

Fortunately, Florida law allows injured victims to receive compensation for their injuries even if their own actions or inactions contributed to their injuries. This scheme is called "comparative negligence," and it allows you to recover money damages so long as someone else was at least 1% responsible.
However, the amount of compensation you can receive will be reduced directly by your proportion of fault. For example, say you did not wear a seatbelt when someone rear-ended you. Because of your negligence, you have contributed to your cracked ribs and concussion. If the jury finds that you are 40% responsible for your injuries, the amount of money you receive will be reduced by 40%. If your injuries are worth $50,000, you will only receive $30,000, or 60%.What Can Financial Compensation Cover?
Injured victims can receive compensation for any economic and non-economic loss caused by a negligent, reckless, or careless act. For example, you can receive money to compensate for:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses;
- Lost wages and loss of earning capacity;
- Scarring and Disfigurement
- Rehabilitative Services
- Damage to your vehicle or other property involved in the accident;
To estimate how much may entitled is based on to the amount of medical bills, receipts, and replacement services. Documentation will help our lawyers calculate the amount of compensation you are legally entitled.
Not all injuries are physical. For example, many of our clients suffer severe emotional or psychological harms including:
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional and Psychological Harms
- Loss of the Enjoyment to Lead a Normal Life
These damages are non-economic, yet they are still very real. After a particularly devastating crash, many people suffer emotional upheaval which leaves them completely changed from the type of person they were before being injured.
Other non-economic losses include pain and suffering that attends any physical injury, as well as potential changes to your intimate relationships, called “loss of consortium.” Like emotional distress, these injuries are harder to calculate. However, our lawyers in Downtown Miami rely on our experience to estimate the amount you are likely to receive.
