Types of Car Accident Claims in Florida

Depending on the type of collision, you may be able to file a personal injury claim, design or manufacturing error claim, or a claim illuminating faulty road designs. These claims have different statutes of limitations and claims processes, which makes it essential to speak with a Florida car accident attorney.

Your attorney will understand your accident's circumstances and file a claim to maximize compensation. These are a few common types of auto accident claims in Florida:

  • Side-impact crashes
  • Rear-end collision
  • Head-on collision
  • Rollover accidents
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Multiple vehicle collisions

Car accidents affect millions of motorists annually, with victims finding themselves in an unfair position to deal with the consequences of someone else’s negligence.

What is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

These are the three main factors determining the worth of a car accident case in Florida:

  • Liability (at-fault party)
  • Insurance coverage (policy limits)
  • Damages (type and severity of injuries)

Each personal injury claim is unique, with many factors at play. Your attorney will consider specific details and contributing factors while filing a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim.

These factors play a role in car accident claims:

  • Poor road conditions
  • Maintenance issues
  • Lack of traffic signals 
  • Drunk or distracted driving
  • Driver error
  • Condition of vehicle
  • Whether negligence was involved

It’s no easy feat navigating the legal world of personal injury, especially for victims struggling with an injury. You should select a qualified automobile accident lawyer in Tampa that can give you the legal assistance you need and helps to maximize your compensation so you can concentrate on your recovery.

Types of Damages You Can Recover in a Car Accident Claim

Depending on your case's unique circumstances, you may be eligible to seek economic and noneconomic damages. This includes damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

Non-economic damages have no specific value and are provided where the injuries severely impact the victim’s lifestyle. A proven and capable car accident attorney, such as the ones at Carlson Meissner & Hayslett, will help you recover the most significant compensation for economic and non-economic damages.
