Damages Available in Heathrow Personal Injury Cases

The two main categories of damages in personal injury cases are economic and non-economic damages. However, in some cases, punitive damages may also be available, but this is typically reserved for especially egregious behavior, such as drunk driving.

Economic Damages in a Florida Personal Injury Case

Economic damages represent the financial losses you've incurred due to your injury. These are tangible damages that can often be substantiated with documentation, like receipts, bills, or invoices. Examples of economic damages include:

  • Medical expenses (current and future)
  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity (pay stubs)
  • Property damage (damage to your car, motorcycle, bike, etc.)
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury (things like travel)

Non-Economic Damages in a Florida Personal Injury Case

Non-economic damages are more subjective and relate to the emotional and physical toll of your injury. These damages can't be proven with receipts or invoices but are equally important. Common types of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium

We Take Heathrow Injury Cases on Contingency - No Fee Unless We Win

We understand that financial concerns often prevent people from seeking legal help. That's why our law firm handles cases on contingency. You won't pay any upfront fees, and we only get paid if we secure compensation for you through a settlement or verdict.

After an accident in Heathrow, it's crucial to act promptly. Florida's statute of limitations generally allows two years from the date of the injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, it's best to start the legal process as soon as possible.
