There are multiple types of compensation that can be pursued after a Florida car accident. The ones that we mostly look at are past medical bills, future medical bills, past lost wages, future loss of earning capacity, past pain and suffering as well as future pain and suffering. In a case involving a DUI, driving under the influence, or some sort of a reckless disregard for human life and safety, we also have punitive damages which could be a seventh source of recovery or seventh type of damages. That’s the amount of damage that would deter that type of behavior from the defendant in the future. So as you can see there are many types of damages. We always recommend seeking the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney to help guide you on your case and make sure that you get a full and just recovery.
