Helping You Get Compensation for Your Daytona Beach Car Accident Injury

When a party acts in a reckless or negligent manner, such as driving while intoxicated, or speeding in a school zone, they may be held accountable for their actions. Compensation may be sought if you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident or uber accident. If the driver of another vehicle crashed into your car, forced you off the road, or otherwise caused your accident, you may seek compensation for their negligent conduct.

What Kind of Compensation Can You Seek in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit seeks compensation for:

  • Medical and hospital expenses, past and future
  • Mental and physical pain and suffering
  • Physical impairment and or disfigurement
  • Lost income starting from the time of the accident and projected until you recover
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation
  • Property
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost capacity to enjoy life, such as the inability to take part in hobbies and activities

If a loved one lost their life as a result of another’s negligence, the family of the victim may seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation is similar to the above, and you may seek burial and funeral expenses as well. The spouse, children, and parents may claim mental pain and suffering.

Speak to a Lawyer Before Filing an Insurance Claim

Florida law states the at fault driver is responsible for your property damage and injuries, but your own insurance policy covers your bodily injury as well through its personal injury protection. It is unwise to negotiate with the insurance company without speaking to a lawyer first. The insurer’s goal is to find a way to reduce or eliminate their costs. The insurer may attempt to obtain information and use it against you to offer a low settlement or deny your claim.

A Lawyer Can File a Lawsuit or Negotiate a Settlement

The at fault driver should be responsible for your damages, but insurance only pays up to the driver’s policy limits. If you feel you want to pursue the driver for additional compensation you deserve, it is recommended you work with a lawyer to help calculate the value of your claim and pursue the at fault party.
