Types of Damages You Can Recover In a Personal Injury Action

If you have been injured in an accident, you may have to face painful medical procedures and the expense of the bills that go along with them. Recovery will take time and the adjustments you and your family have to make to accommodate will likely cost you more than just your medical bills.  You may be left with emotional trauma that affects your ability to lead a normal, fulfilling life, pursue your hobbies, effectively parent your children, or earn sufficient income. The effects can be cumulative and long-lasting.  Even permanent.  And more importantly, very costly.  

Your Damages Can Include:

  • Past and future medical bills
    personal injury damages
  • Past lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity in the future
  • Out-of-pocket costs 
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Pain and suffering

Your life will become much more complicated, overwhelming, and expensive once you have suffered a personal injury, particularly if the injury is severe and life-altering.  Contacting Pensacola's premier personal injury lawyers at Taylor, Warren, Weidner, Hancock & Barnes is an important first step to make sure you recover your health as soon as possible, get back to work and life as you knew it before the accident, and recover the full extent of your damages. 

Coverage For Your Medical Bills

Recovery of the damages you are entitled to, however, can be complicated and difficult because Florida auto insurance law can oftentimes be very confusing, particularly for car accident victims.  Many car accident victims who call us are often surprised to learn their own insurance company may pay their medical bills even when they were not at fault in the accident. Uninsured motorist coverage (“UM”) and Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”) insurance benefits are also confusing to many victims.  Learn more about the different types of auto insurance and Florida insurance regulations here.  At Taylor, Warren, Weidner, Hancock & Barnes, our skilled car accident lawyers are experienced in navigating the often complex and confusing auto insurance laws and we want to educate you on the types of insurance available and how they can best be used to ensure you obtain full recovery of your bills and expenses after an auto accident.
