How To Evaluate Damages in Florida Auto Accidents

Posted on

Understanding the calculation of damages in auto accident cases is crucial when pursuing compensation for your injuries and losses. Damages in Florida auto accidents can be complex, encompassing several different categories. In this blog post, we will break down the crucial elements involved in evaluating damages in Florida auto accidents.

Economic Damages

Economic damages, also known as special damages, are financial losses resulting from the accident. They include:

  • Medical expenses: This involves costs for immediate treatment, ongoing care, and future medical expenses related to your injuries.
  • Lost wages:  If you missed work or cannot continue working due to your injuries, you can claim lost income and diminished earning capacity.
  • Property damage: This includes the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle and other damaged property.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages, or general damages, compensate for non-financial losses. They include:

  • Pain and suffering: This covers the physical pain and emotional distress you’ve suffered due to the accident.
  • Loss of consortium: If your injuries affect your relationship with your spouse, you may be entitled to these damages.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life:  If your injuries prevent you from enjoying hobbies, recreational activities, or other pleasures of life, you can seek compensation for these losses.

Punitive Damages

In some cases, if the at-fault party’s conduct was particularly reckless or egregious, you may be awarded punitive damages. These damages are not meant to compensate for a loss, but to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar behavior.
