What Damages are Available in Car Accident Injury Claims?
If you have been injured in a car accident that someone else caused, you have a legal right to pursue compensation for your losses. Damages are categorized as either "economic" or "non-economic." Economic damages are those which are objective and easily quantifiable, such as vehicle repair costs, medical bills, physical therapy bills, lost wages, etc. Non-economic damages are subjective in nature, but which still represent legitimate losses. These may include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of consortium, etc.
How Does Florida’s No-Fault Law Affect My Claim?
Because Florida is a no-fault auto insurance state, all accident claims will be submitted to the drivers’ own insurance providers, regardless of who is at fault for the crash. This lures many injured drivers into a false sense of security, believing that their own insurance policy will cover all their losses without having to prove fault or liability. Nothing could be further from the truth! Most Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policies only cover the bare minimum of losses related to your claim, which can leave you with thousands of dollars worth of expenses that you may not be able to pay.
However, Florida does allow compensation to be recovered outside the no-fault system where the injuries or other losses (death of a loved one) exceed the policy limits of PIP coverage.
According to Fla. Stat. Ann. section 627.737, the injuries must meet the following threshold:
- Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function.
- Permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability, other than scarring or disfigurement.
- Significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement.
