If you have been the victim of an auto accident due to the negligence, carelessness, and recklessness of another, Florida law allows you to seek compensation and damages through civil litigation.
Under Florida law, auto and vehicle accident victims may file a claim (lawsuit) for compensation under two distinct categories:
Compensatory damages are divided into "economic damages" and "non-economic damages".
- Economic damages: Economic damages includes involve financial expenses and losses as a direct result of the accident. These items may include but may not limited to:
1) Medical expenses as a direct result of the accident, including any future medical expenses;
2) Any physical therapy, rehabilitation or home services costs;
3) Any loss of wages, benefits, or retirement contributions;
4) Costs for hiring someone to perform regular and normal services that you are currently unable to physically perform (mowing the lawn, car repair, cleaning the house, or even running errands);
5) Any auto repairs that are a direct result of the auto accident;
6) Or any other services that you must pay for due to a physical inability as a direct result of the accident
- Non-Economic Damages: Non-Economic Damages involves compensation for any injuries or losses you have been subjected to as a direct result of the accident. These items may include but may not limited to:
1) Pain and Suffering;
2) Any form of physical disfigurement or loss of limbs;
3) Any physical impairment;
4) Mental Anguish;
5) Any long-term or permanent diminished quality of life;
6) Loss of consortium (if your spouse or children lost their life in the crash);
Punitive Damages involve financial compensation as a punishment to the offending party or parties for negligent or intentional egregious actions.
While harder to prove, there may be evidence of particularly egregious acts by the at fault party that caused the crash. Some of these acts often include:
- If the at fault party was drunk or impaired while driving;
- The at fault party was texting and driving, or other provable form of distracted driving;
- If traffic cameras or other evidence shows that the at fault party was speeding at a high rate of speed or street racing;
- That the crash was caused as a result of road rage on the part of the at fault party;
- That the at fault party intentionally caused the crash.
