Car accidents can range from minor fender benders to catastrophic, and each car accident has a unique set of circumstances. So, it can be a challenge to make an estimate as to the amount of compensation you should receive in any given case. That said, under Florida law, there are various categories of damages that you can receive when you are the victim of a car accident, which was caused by another driver’s negligence.
We understand that you may be surprised by that answer. A minor fender bender where no one was injured does not seem to require the hassle of getting anyone else involved, especially an attorney. However, there are a number of considerations surrounding a car accident, however minor it might be. Plus, getting some preliminary advice from an attorney is no cost to you.
