How Much Is My Florida Car Accident Claim Worth?


After the stress and pain of a car accident, you’re probably wondering about getting compensated for your losses. You have medical bills, property damage, and lost wages to worry about. Who should cover your losses, and how much do you deserve?

These are questions that require complex legal analysis and maneuvering to ensure you receive the full value of your car accident claim. Always seek medical attention following your crash, and then discuss your options in a free consultation with a Tampa car accident attorney.

Factors to Consider When Calculating Your Claim

When you seek compensation from your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage or from an at-fault driver (if you have serious injuries), you need to know how much to demand. The insurance company will not voluntarily cover all your losses, as it will often try to minimize payments on claims. Knowing how much you deserve is critical to make an appropriate demand and decide whether to accept a particular settlement offer.

Some factors our attorney will evaluate when determining the value of your claim include:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • The costs of your medical treatment
  • How much income you have lost from missing work
  • Whether you will require future medical care
  • Whether you can return to work at all
  • Your physical and emotional pain and suffering from your injuries
  • How the injury otherwise affects your life
  • Whether you have permanent impairments, disabilities, or disfigurement
  • The severity of the liable party’s conduct that caused the accident

These factors all contribute to your claim calculations. Our legal team regularly assesses and calculates claims that cover all our clients’ losses.

Proving Non-economic Damages

Proving your economic damages, such as medical bills and lost income, can be straightforward. If you have future losses, we can use expert analysis to project your economic losses in the future.

On the other hand, proving how much you deserve for pain and suffering, or other intangible losses can be more complicated. Insurance companies also undervalue pain and suffering, as there is no specific dollar amount attached to these damages.

Our attorneys know that injuries can cause severe suffering in addition to financial losses. We believe you deserve full compensation and justice for how your injuries have affected your life. We take your non-economic losses seriously and will fight for the full amount you deserve in your car accident case.
