How to Calculate Your Car Accident Compensation Amount in Florida

Understanding the complexities of car accident claims can be daunting, especially when you’re recovering from the shock and injuries associated with your accident. Often, victims experience significant physical, emotional, and financial distress after a collision. If someone else’s negligent actions caused your accident, you deserve compensation for the full scope of your damages. 

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, the insurance company may consider various factors such as the severity of the injury and its impact on your quality of life. A skilled attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and fight for the damages you are owed. At Wooten, Kimbrough, Damaso & Dennis, our attorneys are dedicated to fighting aggressively for your rights and interests. We have over a century of combined experience and are ready to help you pursue a successful outcome for your unique case. 


How Compensation Is Calculated After a Florida Car Accident?

Car accident damages are complex and are typically calculated using several factors. A few elements that may apply to your case include the following:

  • Severity of the injury: The nature of the injury and the impact on the victim’s life play a significant role in determining the value of the victim’s damages. Generally, more severe injuries result in higher damages. 
  • Duration of recovery: All injuries impact victims differently and some may experience longer recovery times than others. If your injuries require extensive treatment and a prolonged recovery period, you may be eligible for more damages.
  • Impact on your quality of life: Some catastrophic injuries such as amputations and traumatic brain injuries can have a long-term impact on the victim’s life. These lasting impacts can have a significant impact on your claim for damages.
  • Comparative negligence: If the victim is partially responsible for the accident and their subsequent injuries, they may have their damages reduced by their percentage of fault. 

Because damages can vary widely depending on the nature of your injuries and the intensity of your recovery, the exact amount can be challenging to calculate on your own. A skilled attorney can review every aspect of your case to determine the total value of the damages you are owed.
