How much money can you recover from a car accident injury?
At the outset of an injury case, it is impossible for a lawyer to determine its exact value. Numerous factors come into play, making it difficult to make accurate predictions early on. Typically, there tends to be a correlation between medical expenses incurred and the value attributed to pain and suffering. For instance, if your medical bills amount to $10,000, the compensation for pain and suffering will likely be lower than those with medical bills totaling $150,000. Also, if a medical professional says that you will need future care, that will also be taken into account.
Nevertheless, there are instances where medical expenses do not impact the value of pain and suffering at all. This varies on a case-by-case basis. For example, if an individual loses their vision due to an eye injury, where limited treatment options exist, the case would still hold a higher value compared to someone with a neck injury who received no treatment. If the fault for the accident is uncertain or subject to debate, the compensation for pain and suffering may be reduced accordingly. Finally, if insurance coverage is insufficient, it will result in a lower case value.
Under Florida law, all medical providers and health insurance companies must be reimbursed from your final settlement. We work to negotiate these bills for you after they are resolved with the insurance company. In every case, we approach this task with utmost dedication, ensuring that our clients receive more money in their pockets.

Common Causes of Car Accidents
Although driver negligence is the most common cause, car accidents may result from other factors such as poor road conditions, weather, defective vehicles, and other elements.
Because so many factors can cause a car accident, multiple parties may be at fault for your injuries. In most cases, the other driver is at fault. However, parties such as mechanics, vehicle manufacturers, and government entities responsible for maintaining the roads could also be liable in some cases.
A few of the most common causes of car accidents include:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving (see distracted driving facts on NHSTA)
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Excessive speeding.
- Traffic violations
- Defective automobile parts or service
- Vehicle maintenance negligence
- Road conditions & inclement weather
Common Injuries Sustained from Auto Accidents in Florida.
If you’ve been in a car accident, it’s important to be aware of some of the common types of injuries. Even if you feel fine immediately after the accident, you should still seek medical attention as some injuries may not show symptoms for hours or even days.
- Whiplash is the most common injury sustained in car accidents, especially in rear-end collisions. Whiplash is a neck injury caused by a sudden, forceful movement of the head forward and backward or side to side. Symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and dizziness.
- Back injuries: Car accidents can also cause back injuries, including spinal cord injuries, herniated discs, and fractures. Back injuries can lead to chronic pain, reduced mobility, and other long-term complications.
- Head injuries: Head injuries are another common type of injury sustained in car accidents. They can range from minor concussions to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Symptoms of a head injury can include headaches, dizziness, memory loss, and mood changes.
- Broken bones: Broken bones are also common in car accidents, especially in high-speed collisions. The most commonly broken bones in car accidents are arms, legs, and ribs.
- Soft tissue injuries: Soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, and bruises, can also occur in car accidents. These injuries can be painful and may require medical treatment.
Do you need a car accident lawyer if you have serious or catastrophic injuries?
If you are involved in a serious injury case, it is absolutely suggested that you promptly contact a lawyer right away. Failing to do so could prove to be a significant mistake. In situations where the vehicle damage is substantial, and the injuries are severe, such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, spinal disc injuries, amputations, paralysis, broken bones, or even fatalities, the immediate assistance of an Orlando car accident lawyer is necessary.
We need to get to work gathering crucial evidence and instructing you on how best to navigate interactions with medical providers and individuals, including your online and social media activity. The insurance companies will gather their own evidence to diminish the value of any serious accident case. Therefore, we must make sure that we gather our own evidence as well, so we are equipped to fight for the best possible compensation for your injuries.
What about minor injuries?
Even if your injuries are minor, you should reach out to an auto accident attorney for a case evaluation. Sometimes serious injuries may present as minor or not at all. Regardless of the nature of your injuries, if we can take on your case, we will ensure that you get the most compensation for your specific injuries. To achieve this goal, I personally guide each of my clients on how to interact with their doctors and other medical providers, as medical records play a vital role in determining the value of the case.
Determining the nature and value of minor injuries is challenging immediately after an accident. It depends on your diagnosis following treatment. If you only visit a doctor once, the case may have no value. However, if you experience neck and back pain following a reasonably forceful impact to your car or truck, it is possible that you have more serious injuries requiring more extensive medical attention or procedures. So seemingly minor accidents can result in more significant injuries. Even less severe injuries that have a permanent impact may still be worth pursuing. The best way to find out is to contact our office right away for a free consultation. It doesn’t cost anything to discuss your case with me.
2 Things You Should NEVER Do After You Have Been Injured in a Car Accident
1. Do not give a statement to the insurance company before consulting an attorney after a car accident.
Very shortly after the car accident, you will likely be contacted by the at-fault party’s insurance company asking for a recorded statement in order to determine liability. They will say that it is standard procedure or a “requirement” to get a recorded statement and a medical release so that they can have access to your medical records and bills. The representative from the insurance provider may seem very courteous and seem to be helping you get compensation handled quickly. Don’t fall for this trap! What the insurance company is really doing is collecting anything they can to defend against a personal injury claim later! Adjusters are trained to extract information or some sort of confession from you without you knowing.
See, insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies and have the insurance company’s interest at heart… not yours! Know that you are not required by law to give a statement. Don’t answer any questions about the accident or yourself. Instead, contact an experienced personal injury attorney that can deal with these folks on your behalf. An experienced attorney will be able to assess your case and guide you on how to deal with the situation… and how to get the appropriate compensation.
2. Do NOT wait more than 14 days to get treatment.
Under Florida law, you must seek medical attention within 14 days of being injured from an automobile accident in order to collect Florida PIP coverage. Florida has a $10,000 Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage requirement. If you do not seek medical treatment within that fourteen-day window, you will not be eligible to collect this coverage.
With that said, if you do not get treatment within the 14-day period, it does NOT mean you cannot receive damages and compensation from the defendant for pain and suffering, loss of income or other losses. But it does mean the standard $10,000 liability benefit is waived.
