Injured by a Negligent Driver? Have a Palm Bay Police Report? Let Us Recover Your Damages!
Florida consistently ranks in the top 5 nationally for the total number of licensed drivers on the road out of all 50 states. Brevard County sees several thousand traffic collisions every year due to the high traffic rate. Car accidents can result in serious injury, even at low speeds.
Whether you have been involved in a rear-end collision, a T-bone, or a head-on accident, the crash can result in serious injuries, including cuts and bruises, neck and back injuries, broken bones, or even catastrophic injuries such a traumatic brain injury, severe spinal cord damage, or paralysis. You may even lose a loved one as a result of a traffic accident in Palm Bay, Florida.
By hiring an auto accident lawyer from our firm, you will have the representation of an AV® Rated attorney who is not afraid to go to trial. Our firm will work tirelessly to negotiate a settlement outside of the courtroom whenever possible; we are not afraid to fight for your rights at trial. More and more insurance companies are pushing to take cases to trial, and we are more than ready to represent you in court.
How much you can recover after a car accident depends on the specifics of your case. However, what you can pursue compensation for is the same in every claim. You can recover your losses associated with suffering an injury as mentioned above. These losses are called “damages,” and they are broken up into three main categories: economic, non-economic, and general.
As the name suggests, economic damages compensate for the financial losses an injury victim suffers, such as medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earning potential, physical therapy costs, and many other expenses associated with your accident recovery. Non-economic damages compensate for more abstract losses, such as emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.
Since non-economic damages compensate for less quantifiable losses, they are also called general damages. Economic and non-economic damages both fall under the umbrella of “compensatory damages,” meaning that the main purpose of them is to compensate the injured party for a loss.
The last type of damages, punitive, differ from compensatory damages in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party for their careless actions. Punitive damages in Palm Bay, Florida, (and the rest of the state) are capped, or limited, to three times the amount of compensatory damages or $500,000, whichever amount is greater. Since punitive damages can be quite severe, they are not often awarded.
How to Get Compensation
From a Car Accident
Hiring a lawyer is not necessary to get compensation after an auto accident, but you may not be fully compensated for every aspect of your injuries without one. Our Palm Bay, Florida, auto accident lawyers can help you put together a strong claim that will help you get the full and fair compensation you deserve that covers:
- Medical costs
- Lost income
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Pain & suffering
Additionally, having a lawyer in your corner will relieve you of the stress of dealing with insurance companies. Often, insurance companies will offer a much lower settlement offer than you deserve at first. Don’t settle for that – fight for what you truly deserve!
Highway patrol officials and their reports can hold great sway when it comes to proving your claim when a vehicle hits you on the road. Whether it is a fatal crash or ended in critically injured victims, Palm Bay, FL, accidents are no joke! Our lawyers can also talk to the Palm Bay police department and the Florida highway patrol to get the needed police reports for your claim and find more evidence for your case.

Taking Thorough Notes Will
Help Your Injury Claim
After an accident, most people are shaken up, injured or not. This is not exactly breaking news but important to remember, nonetheless. If you are injured, you should seek medical help immediately. But if you are physically able to, collecting evidence and notes at the crash scene will increase your chances of having a solid injury case. It’s become common knowledge that you should exchange information with the other driver in an accident, but there are other things you should do as well:
- Take pictures of everything from as many different angles as possible. Pictures of your injuries, damage of the two vehicles (or more), location of the accident (westbound lanes, eastbound lanes, southbound lanes, vehicles traveling north), road signs, and even pictures of the time of the accident can help.
- Take notes on what you see, hear, do, and say immediately after the accident.
- Take note of the weather conditions and road conditions (especially with construction)
- Speak with witnesses and pedestrians, if they are willing, and note down what they observed
Making sure you speak with authorities (Fla. state troopers) and other police personnel will certainly help your case.
