Accidents caused by the negligence of others results in millions of dollar of lost productivity and medical expenses each year, as well as an immeasurable amount of human suffering due to injury. Florida tort law allows for people injured by the negligence of another to recover damages for the losses they sustain after an accident by bringing a personal injury claim against the responsible party or parties. Both economic and noneconomic losses may be compensable, and some of the more common types of damages awarded in Florida personal injury cases include compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of future earning potential, just to name a few. While a personal injury award cannot change the past, it can certainly help alleviate the financial stress associated with an unexpected injury and can help victims and their families move on with their lives. The best way to make sure you get the compensation you deserve after a preventable accident is to discuss your case with an Oldsmar personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
