How are damages calculated in personal injury cases in Florida?
Well the special damages, medical bills or wage loss, you simply add them up and determine them. If they’re gonna go into the future, you may want to retain an economist to evaluate the lost wages, it’s what we call loss of net accumulations. The human damages, the pain and suffering, the mental anguish, depends on the effect that the injury has on the person. If you’ve hired an experienced personal injury attorney, they can evaluate those, and put them into a ballpark for you. Ultimately, if you can’t resolve your case with the insurance company, they’re determined by a jury.
