Why Hire An Attorney?
Pursuant to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle (FLHSMV) Crash Dashboard for 2019, there were over 64,521 collisions in Miami- Dade County alone, killing 334 victims. As the years pass, more and more drivers are on the road, which increases the likelihood of an accident occurring. If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident, having an experienced auto accident attorney by your side is not only crucial but essential to assure you receive the maximum amount for your injuries. In Redemption Law, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you get the compensation you deserve.
What If After An Accident, The Insurance Company Contacts Me Directly?
If an insurance company contacts you regarding settling your claim, we advise you to hang up and contact our office immediately. Insurance companies will try and pay the least amount for your injuries. They know most people don’t understand the extent of their injuries and how costly treating them can be. Although you may feel fine today, some injuries take time to develop and will require medical attention, which can be expensive.
Money Damages You May Be Awarded
If you have been the victim of an auto accident, you may be entitled to economic damages, non- economic damages as well as punitive damages.
Economic damages refer to your current out-of-pocket costs, as well as reasonably calculable future costs. Some examples of economic damages include medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage.
Non-economic damages are funds awarded to victims to compensate for the intangible negative impact of their injuries. Some examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Punitive damages are designed to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from engaging in similar actions. Punitive damages may be awarded if a court finds that the defendant’s conduct was so deplorable or malicious that such damages should be awarded to the victim. Be aware that the defendant’s egregious conduct must be directly related to the victim’s injuries to give rise to punitive damages.
When Must You File Your Claim?
Under Florida Law, the victim of an auto accident has four years from the date on which he or she sustained the injury to file a lawsuit. If a claim is never filed within the four-year window, the victim will be barred from filing suit or seeking monetary recovery for injuries sustained from the incident, which is why it is important to act quickly after an incident has occurred.
