Florida car accidents can be serious and may result in many damages. Even if you think you escaped uninjured and your vehicle suffered minor dents, things might be worse than you initially believe. If you were involved in a collision and want to file a lawsuit, you should know what types of damages are available.
After a car accident, you can file a personal injury claim and recover two different types of damages: economic and non-economic. Economic damages are those you can put a price tag on while non-economic damages are not tangible and don’t have any specific costs associated with them.
In some, rare cases, punitive damages might also be available. Punitive damages are sometimes awarded to victims when the defendant’s actions leading up to the accident were so outrageous that the court decides they need to be punished. For example, a car crash occurs as a result of a driver being reckless and deliberately drag racing, resulting in catastrophic injuries to the people in the vehicle they hit.
Specifically, you can recover several types of economic and non-economic damages if your car accident claim is successful. Economic damages that are recoverable include the following:
Some of the damages suffered after a serious car accident are immeasurable. However, recovering compensation might be able to alleviate some of them.
