Palm Beach Car Accident Victims May Receive Compensation For Their Injuries And Other Losses 

If you or a loved one sustained serious injury in a car accident that was the result of another person or entity’s negligent actions, you may file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your accident injuries and other losses. These losses are known as “damages”, and may include any of the following:

  • Bills for medical treatment
  • Hospital bills
  • Bills for surgery
  • Cost of prescription medications 
  • Cost of rehabilitation treatment
  • Cost of physical therapy
  • Bills for imaging tests, lab work, and diagnostic scans
  • Cost of future medical expenses related to the accident 
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of one’s life enjoyment
  • Loss of one’s quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost future earning capacity 
  • Lost wages 
  • Lost sick time  
  • Lost earned vacation time 

If the injured victim has endured losses that do not have an exact monetary value, such as the loss of one’s life enjoyment, the courts will evaluate several criteria and assign a value to those losses.

Florida’s Legal Deadlines For Filing Car Accident Claims

Legal deadlines for filing claims in civil court, such as for a car accident, are established by each state. These deadlines are known as “statutes of limitations” and they vary depending upon the type of claim that is being filed. In the state of Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is four years from the time of the accident. If someone died in a car accident and the family of the victim is filing a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver, then the statute of limitations is two years from when the victim died.

Statutes of limitations are important legal deadlines. If you miss the deadline to file your car accident claim, the court will dismiss your case and you will not be able to recover any compensation for your losses.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Palm Beach, Florida

FAQ: I am concerned I won’t be able to meet the legal deadline for filing a personal injury claim in Florida. What should I do?

Florida’s statute of limitations for car accidents is four years from when the accident took place. If you are concerned that you will be unable to meet this legal deadline, it is best to consult with an experienced Florida personal injury attorney. In certain circumstances, the court may extend the legal deadline for filing a car accident claim; a skilled car accident attorney can evaluate your case and advise you regarding the steps required to request an extension of this legal deadline.

FAQ: I got a settlement offer from the insurance company. Should I just take it and not bother filing a personal injury claim?

The first settlement offer you receive is not usually the best settlement offer you may receive. Insurance companies offer settlements early in the claims process hoping to entice you to take the money and drop the case. These initial offers rarely cover the extent of your losses and most often leave the injured party with outstanding bills to pay. Instead of giving in to temptation, consult with a knowledgeable Florida car accident lawyer. Lawlor, White & Murphey offers a free case evaluation for car accident victims — a member of our team will review your case and discuss the compensation you may be entitled to recover.
