Damages from a car accident
When motor vehicles collide–especially when they are traveling at high speeds–the risk of severe injury is high. Types of injuries that are common in a car accident include back and neck injuries, head and traumatic brain injuries, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, seat belt injuries, facial injuries, and soft tissue injuries.
When a car accident is serious and injuries are severe, the victim may incur high medical bills that they cannot possibly pay–in some cases, the person is uninsured, making these bills incredibly burdensome. If the injury is severe enough to prevent the affected person from working, then they will also suffer lost wages and a loss of earning capacity. Pain, suffering, and emotional distress are common noneconomic injuries that are suffered.
Who pays for damages from a car accident?
After a serious car accident, one of the most critical elements of a claim is determining who caused the accident and who should be held liable for damages. In Florida, a no-fault system is in place, which means that drivers must first file a claim with their own insurance company’s personal injury protection (PIP) coverage before they pursue damages against the other driver regardless of fault. In fact, a driver can only step outside of the no-fault system if they meet the injury threshold to do so. If you have been in a serious car accident, you can step outside of the no-fault system to pursue a claim against the other driver’s insurance company or file a lawsuit against the other driver. You will need to prove that your injuries would not have occurred but for the driver’s failure to uphold the duty of care owed to you in order for your claim to be successful.

Common Questions About Car Accidents in Dade City
How long a car accident claim takes can vary dramatically on a case-by-case basis. Some claims will be settled in a handful of weeks or a few months; others may end in litigation after a year’s time. How long your case will take likely depends on the complexity of the accident, fault, and the degree of your damages and injuries.
It can be so tempting to accept the first settlement that you are offered–you surely want nothing more than to receive compensation for your injuries and be able to move forward with your life. However, realizing your desperation, an insurance adjuster may offer you far less than you really deserve. You should never accept a first settlement offer that hasn’t been vetted by an attorney.
