What Are the Costs of Unintentional Injuries?

The National Safety Council has provided estimates on the average economic cost of injuries. The average comprehensive cost including lost quality of life totals:

  • $4,538,000 for death due to motor vehicle crashes
  • $230,000 per incapacitating injury in motor vehicle accidents
  • $58,700 per non-incapacitating evident injury from motor vehicle accidents
  • $28,000 per possible injury from motor vehicle collisions
  • $4,700,000 from public non-motor vehicle injuries resulting in death

Because every case is different, you may sustain more or less costs than these average estimates. It is important for an experienced attorney to help you understand the full extent of losses before you agree to settle an injury claim.

How Can You Get Costs Covered after a Personal Injury?

Most individuals and families cannot cover the cost of injuries out-of-pocket. Not only do you have medical expenses but you may also have time missed from work, a loss of future earning potential and the loss of a loved one’s income he or she would have earned over a lifetime.

Your family could face significant financial hardship after an accident if you do not take advantage of the protections afforded by Florida law. Florida law says that you are entitled to be compensated by a person or a company who was responsible for causing your injury. Damages in a personal injury lawsuit or a personal injury settlement should cover:

  • All medical expenses including future treatment you will need
  • Loss of income including any ongoing reduction in earning potential
  • Pain and suffering compensation
  • Emotional distress compensation
  • Wrongful death damages including funeral costs, lost companionship and the loss of the financial contributions the deceased would have made if he or she had not been killed

A Steinger, Iscoe & Greene litigator will help you pursue a claim to obtain the damages the law says you deserve. You can pursue a case in court, or negotiate a settlement with the help of an experienced attorney who can deal with the insurer on your behalf.

When Can You Pursue a Claim for Injury Compensation in Port St. Lucie?

You can pursue a claim for compensation any time you suffered harm or a loved one was killed because of a person or company’s failure to live up to a legal duty. You could sue:

  • A property owner who allowed dangerous conditions to occur without warning visitors
  • A homeowner who failed to secure a swimming pool to prevent drowning
  • A canine owner whose dog caused injury or death due to a bite or attack
  • A motor vehicle driver, truck driver or trucking company responsible for causing a collision
  • The manufacturer of a defective or dangerous product including drugs and medical devices
  • A nursing home responsible for the abuse or neglect of a patient

These are just a few examples of situations in which a personal injury claim could be made to obtain compensation.
