Melbourne Personal Injury Attorney
Representing Injury Victims in Melbourne, Florida
Have you been injured in an accident? Personal injury law is that area of law that specifically deals with negligent, careless and reckless behavior. Fortunately, in this country, accident victims are legally entitled to pursue financial compensation when they are injured in an accident. For those who are killed in such accidents, their surviving family members can pursue compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit; this action is taken against the legally responsible party. Wrongful death claims may involve work-related accidents, car accidents, drunk driving accidents, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, boating accidents, or any other type of accident that lead to the untimely death of the accident victim.
Understanding Damages Awarded in a Personal Injury Claim
What types of economic and non-economic damages are covered in a personal injury lawsuit? Virtually all economic and non-economic damages may be covered in a personal injury lawsuit, and these may include: medical bills, ambulance bills, chiropractic care, physical therapy, rehabilitation services, property damage (as in a car accident), reconstruction surgery (car accidents, dog bites etc.), pain & suffering, lost income and loss of future income. How much financial compensation an accident victim receives will depend upon certain relevant factors such as the extent of the injuries and how such injuries will impact the victim's ability to earn a living.
Accidents caused by the negligent or careless behavior of others can lead to all kinds of personal injuries, from cuts, bruises, and sprains to amputations and broken bones,
head and eye injuries,neck, back, and joint injuries,
traumatic brain injuries, to
paraplegic injuries. All of these types of injuries can leave victims facing devastating hardships of physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial distress due to loss of wages or earning power and staggering medical expenses.
