Broward County auto accidents typically cause injuries to the head, brain, neck, back, face, and psyche. Research has shown that for every car accident within the state of Florida, almost every driver or passenger sustains a serious injury. Literally, not a soul walks away unscathed by the majority of this state’s car crashes.
Florida’s Department of Highway Safety reports that 650 auto accidents occur every day. Over 200,000 auto accident injuries are sustained yearly, as well as over 2,000 car crash fatalities. The plethora of auto accident injuries has lead drivers and passengers alike with the need to more thoroughly understand what damages they are entitled to for compensation. The list below describes many of expenses that are eligible for compensation.
Compensation for Auto Accident Injuries
- Medical Costs-emergency care, hospital care, surgery, doctors, chiropractors, and any follow-up care required that pertains to the injury sustained in the accident.
- Lost Wages and Earning Capacity-often the victim is unable to immediately return to work, due to the injury. Many times the injury has long lasting or permanent damages that requires the victim to be disabled and unable to work or forced to change careers entirely.
- Pain and Suffering-evidence collected will pertain to special circumstances, such as if the driver was intoxicated. Other factors include seriousness of the injuries, time needed to recover, and if complete recovery is possible.
