Recoverable Damages in a Hollywood Personal Injury Case
Many people want to know up front if suing for damages is worth their time. They also want to know how much money they can get for their damages. Several factors will determine this answer, including how severe your injuries are, how long your recovery period will be, and how your personal life and career will be impacted going forward.
Generally, recoverable damages in an injury case fall into two categories: economic (financial) damages and non-economic (non-financial) damages.
Economic damages are easier to assess because they come with a fixed dollar amount. Examples include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages, tips, bonuses, and benefits
- Reduced or lost earning ability if you cannot return to work in the same capacity
- Property damage, including repair or replacement expenses
- Other accident-related expenses
You can prove any of these expenses with receipts, invoices, pay stubs, tax documents, and other written documentation.
Because there is no fixed dollar amount on these losses, it can be challenging to put a value on them-but this does not mean they do not count. A personal injury lawyer can help assign values to your non-economic damages, so the liable party and their insurer know exactly what they are worth.
Examples of non-economic damages include:
- Mental and physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Disability and disfigurement
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of life enjoyment
Wrongful Death Damages
You may also qualify under Florida law to pursue wrongful death damages. If your loved one suffered fatal injuries in Hollywood or South Florida and you are an eligible family member, we can help you pursue justice in civil court. Generally, if you win your wrongful death case, you can recover:
- The cost of your loved one’s final medical bills
- Their funeral, burial, or cremation expenses
- Other end-of-life expenses
You may also be able to recover the income they would have contributed to the family household and other compensation. Our Hollywood personal injury attorneys can walk you through the steps of building a wrongful death case.
All Florida Personal Injury Cases Must Meet the State’s Deadline
Pursuing a personal injury case is a major decision, and we are here to make it as stress-free as possible for you. However, we have a limited time to do this, and time passes by quickly.
Florida generally requires injured parties to sue for damages within two years of the injury or accident, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you have just two years from the decedent’s death, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(b).
We advise anyone seeking civil action in Florida to get their case started as soon as possible. If you miss the state deadline, you likely will be barred from seeking compensation from the party that injured you-and this opportunity is lost forever.

We Must Prove the Other Party’s Negligence Caused Your Injuries
There are four elements that prove the liable party’s negligence. Using evidence and legal experience, our team will work to build a case that proves:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care to keep you safe from harm
- The defendant failed to meet that duty when they were negligent in their actions or inactions
- This breach of duty harmed you by causing an accident in which you suffered injuries
- You incurred damages that you should be compensated for, such as medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering
