Skilled Personal Injury Law Firm Secures Compensation For Sunrise Car Accident Victims

Car accidents often result in serious injuries that may require hospitalization, surgery, and ongoing medical treatment. Those that have been hurt in accidents that are the result of another person’s negligence can recover compensation for their injuries and other losses, known as “damages”.

Injured victims can file a personal injury claim to recover any of the following damages:

  • Doctor bills 
  • Hospital bills
  • Costs of surgeries
  • Cost of prescription drugs 
  • Cost of rehabilitation
  • Cost of physical therapy
  • Bills for imaging tests, lab work, and diagnostic scans
  • Estimated cost of future medical expenses resulting from the accident 
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of life enjoyment
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of future earning capacity as a result of the injuries
  • Lost wages   
  • Lost sick time  
  • Lost earned vacation time 

Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the injured party for the harm they endured in the accident, with the goal of restoring the individual to the state they were in prior to the accident. Compensatory damages are not intended to punish the at-fault party.

Florida’s Statute Of Limitations For Car Accident Claims

Statutes of limitations are the legal time limits for filing civil claims in a given state. These statutes vary from state to state, and also differ depending upon the type of underlying claim. 

Florida’s statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is four years from the time the accident occurred. This four-year time limit also applies to any lawsuit filed over vehicle damage that is a result of the accident.

If a car accident resulted in a fatality and the family of the deceased wishes to bring a wrongful death suit against the at-fault driver, the statute of limitations is different. In Florida, wrongful death claims must be filed within two years from the date the victim died.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Sunrise, Florida

FAQ: What steps should I take after a car accident?

If you have been injured in a car accident, the first step to take is to call the police to report the accident. Next, seek medical attention for your accident injuries. Third, take photos and video of the scene of the accident, the position of the vehicles, damage to the vehicles, and take photos of your physical injuries. Obtain contact information from the other driver and any witnesses to the accident. Avoid making any statements regarding the accident, especially apologies, and contact a skilled car accident attorney.

FAQ: I was injured in a car accident but didn’t realize I was hurt until a few days later. What should I do?

It is not unusual for accident injuries to present themselves several days or even weeks after an accident. If you were injured in a car accident, it is critical that you seek medical treatment. This serves to not only provide the necessary medical attention; it also documents your car accident injuries, which is necessary to support a car accident claim.
