Healthcare expenses and lost income can add up quickly in the wake of a serious car wreck. Our Hobe Sound auto accident attorneys will calculate your financial and non-economic losses to ensure your claim includes all damages to which you may be entitled.
Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Property damage;
- Medical expenses (past and future);
- Lost wages;
- Reduced earning capacity;
- Other objectively calculable losses related to your injuries;
- Physical impairment or disfigurement;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of consortium;
- Loss of enjoyment of life; and
- Exemplary damages.
To recover exemplary damages, also called “punitive damages,” it must be shown that the at-fault driver’s behavior constituted intentional misconduct or gross negligence. Punitive damages may be recoverable if the defendant was drunk, fleeing from law enforcement, or partaking in other criminal or egregious behaviors.
You should expect the insurance company or defendant to investigate your accident to find reasons to dispute the value of your claim. They might use photos from your social media accounts to dispute the severity of your injuries. They might try to manipulate you into unknowingly admitting fault during a recorded statement.
The Hobe Sound car accident lawyers at Donaldson & Weston will help you avoid critical mistakes that would put your claim in jeopardy. We will perform a meticulous review of your collision, compile all available evidence, calculate your damages, and arrange testimony from expert witnesses to support your case.Do I Have Grounds for a Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Claim?
If you were injured or lost a family member in a car accident that a negligent driver caused, you have the right to bring a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Even if you or your loved one was partially at fault for the collision, this does not necessarily bar you from recovering compensation.
The auto accident attorneys at Donaldson & Weston will evaluate your case for free to determine if you have sufficient grounds for a claim. We will answer your questions, explain what will happen during the claims process, and educate you on the laws related to your case.Schedule a Free Consultation With a Hobe Sound Car Accident Attorney Today!
