Civil lawsuit plaintiffs typically receive two main types of damages. Those are punitive damages that punish a defendant’s wrongdoing and compensatory damages that seek to make a victim “whole” again after an accident. Every state has different laws concerning punitive damages, their limits and the types of damages available in particular civil claims. However, compensatory damages are generally the same for any civil lawsuit depending on the effects of defendant’s negligence.
Personal injury litigation arising out of a car crash is among the most common forms of civil litigation in the state of Florida. Many years ago, the State of Florida enacted laws that were intended to encourage smaller claims to be resolved without a lawsuit. In general, the laws sought to provide quick and hassle-free payment of minor medical bills in exchange for a threshold for personal injury claims that were allowed to go to a lawsuit. The threshold is a permanent injury, which can be a broken bone, significant scarring or a severe sprain that will be permanent. If the injury does not meet this threshold, you cannot claim pain and suffering damages for your car accident injury.
