Q: What are some of the ways I could receive money in a car accident lawsuit?
A: Property damage settlement; lost wages; loss of consortium; damages due personal injury.
A: I'd add past and future medical expenses, if sever injuries and you were not previously disabled, loss of future work and vocational horizons. If Medicare, Medical Assistance, or other insurance paid for the medical bills or short term disability paid for wage loss, then they have a "lien" that you have to protect and you'd need to make a claim for that too. So sounds like you need to contact a member of the fla. Justice Assn--they give free consults.
A: In the event you have a permanent injury your are entitled to recover for your pain and suffering and inability to lead a normal lifestyle. Additionally, whether or not your injury is permanent you are entitled to recover your medical expenses and lost wages. Personal Injury Protection insurance also provides a recovery of 80% of your medical expenses and 60% of your lost wages up to the limits of the policy.
