Injured by a negligent driver? 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, and Brevard County sees several thousand traffic collisions on a yearly basis due to the high rate of traffic. Car accidents can result in serious injury even at low speeds.
Whether you’ve 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.
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, but seeing as how insurance companies are pushing more and more cases toward trial, we are not afraid to fight for your rights at trial.
How much you can recover after a car accident dependents on the specifics of your case, however, what you can pursue compensation for is the same in every claim. As mentioned above you can recover your losses associated with suffering an injury, these losses are called “damages” and they are broken up into three main categories: economic, non-economic, and general.
Economic damages, as the name suggests, compensates for the financial losses an injury victim suffers, such as medical bills, while 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” which means 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 Florida 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 a car accident, but without one you may not be fully compensated for every aspect of your injuries. Our Melbourne 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 having to deal with the insurance companies. Oftentimes, 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!

Taking Thorough Notes Will
Help Your Injury Claim
After an accident, most people are shaken up, whether they are injured or not. If you are injured, you should seek medical help immediately. But if you are physically able to, collecting evidence and notes at the scene of the accident will increase your chances at 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, vehicle damage, location of the accident, 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
- Speak with witnesses, if they are willing, and note down what they observed
