At Glover Law Firm, our Florida attorneys understand the types of difficulties that can arise after a car accident. Throughout the years, we have witnessed the horrific damage, injuries and fatalities that can be involved, and we understand how hard it is for some victims to obtain financial compensation for their losses due to a car accident.
In Florida, there are specific regulations that can make obtaining damages such as pain and suffering and compensation through insurance claims more complicated than necessary. That’s why we are here. With offices in Ocala and The Villages, our attorneys are well-versed in Florida specific laws and aggressively pursue full compensation for present as well as future financial losses related to the car accident.
How Can Our Car Accident Attorney Help You?
With the help of an auto accident attorney from the Glover Law Firm, you can be sure to receive the maximum amount of benefits owed to you from the insurance company. Our lawyers can also evaluate your case for free and determine whether you are eligible to file a claim against the party at fault for additional financial compensation.
The Limitation of PIP
As a driver in Ocala or The Villages, you probably already know the minimum Personal Injury Protection, or PIP, insurance you must carry. This type of insurance is essential in the event of an accident, as it covers 60% of any wages you lose due to the accident and 80% of the medical bills for any injuries you may suffer. This insurance regulation was enacted to help reduce the number of lawsuits filed after car accidents. However, the monetary compensation provided by this PIP isn’t always enough for injured drivers to get by on. It may not cover enough of the lost wages or medical bills, and there is no compensation available through the PIP for the pain and suffering afflicted by the accident, property damage, or any other damage that may have occurred.
How We Can Help
As your Florida auto accident lawyers, we can assist you in collecting financial compensation beyond what your insurance claim is willing to pay. We will collect, analyze, and present evidence to the negligent driver’s insurance company to help you reach a settlement. If no settlement is agreed upon, the case will most likely proceed to trial.
Common Financial Compensation Attached to Auto Accidents
Economic auto accident damages (or compensatory damages) are designed to compensate the victim for their monetary losses. These damages go beyond present and future medical expenses. Often an insurance company will want to downplay the areas of compensation and settle with the victim. With Glover Law Firm, we ensure full monetary compensation.
Common damages awarded in car accident cases include:
Present Medical Expenses – Emergency room and hospital care, surgery, rehabilitation, medication, doctor care, home health assistance if needed.
Future Medical Expenses – Ongoing medical care related to the accident.
Lost Wages – Compensation for earnings lost from the time of the accident. Unemployed victims may still be eligible by proving earning potential.
Loss of earning capacity – Sometimes victims permanently lose their ability to return to their previous profession. In these cases, compensation may be available. :
Pain and Suffering – This includes the physical pain experienced due to injuries which resulted from the accident.
Mental Anguish – Emotional and mental distress related to the auto accident includes fear, worry, anxiety, grief, nightmares and other problems related to the accident.
Loss of Consortium – An uninjured spouse is sometimes eligible to recover damages for loss of marital benefits. These would include affection, companionship, comfort and intimacy.
Punitive Damages – If the actions of the defendant are proven to be rage related or malicious in nature, punitive damages may be awarded.
