Various types of damages might be available following crash

Your morning drive begins like it typically always does -- with a coffee cup in one hand, the steering wheel in the other and talk radio in the background. All of a sudden, though, you hear a major bang and feel pain in your body. Another motorist on the road has hit you.

Unfortunately, sometimes, these types of car accidents can cause you to suffer grave injuries with long-term consequences. Fortunately, if your accident was the result of a negligent driver, it is within your rights to seek various damages through the Florida civil court system.

Medical cost compensation

Perhaps your car accident caused you to suffer major physical injuries requiring medical treatment -- for example, a spinal cord injury. If you are able to show that you will need ongoing medical treatment due to your accident-related injuries, you might receive a damage award that will help you to cover your future medical costs. Your physician can give you an idea of how much these costs may be.

Compensation for losing your ability to enjoy your life

The physical harm you have suffered as a result of your crash may also cause you to lose your ability to fully enjoy your life. For instance, maybe the activities you used to enjoy are no longer possible to engage in as a result of your injuries. Alternatively, perhaps you now have large scars on your face due to the accident, meaning that the accident has affected your appearance permanently. You might be able to receive a judicial award of monetary damages for this.

Compensation for losing your ability to earn money

Damages may also be available if you are able to demonstrate that your accident-related injuries will keep you from returning to your job. In this situation, a multitude of factors will impact the award you may ultimately receive, such as your job field, your age and life expectation, and your health condition.

Mental anguish compensation

Following your crash, you might be struggling with mental suffering and emotional distress -- for instance, shock, anxiety, embarrassment and humiliation. Fortunately, you can pursue damages for your mental anguish as well. An attorney can help you to pursue every type of damage you are entitled to, given the circumstances surrounding your car accident.
