Recoverable Damages in an Ocala Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit

Potentially recoverable damages in an Ocala personal injury case may include:

  • Expenses related to your medical treatment and follow-up care
  • Lost wages from time away from work
  • Any decrease in earning capacity if you cannot return to the same job because of your injuries
  • Property damage costs 
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident, injuries, or care
  • Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, disability, and disfigurement 

You Could Recover Damages if You Lost a Loved One

If you qualify to recover damages on behalf of a decedent, Florida Statutes § 768.21 says that you could secure: 

  • Loss of consortium
  • Funeral expenses, including the burial plot, cremation, and casket 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of income 
  • Loss of inheritance 
  • Medical expenses 

We Can Calculate the Value of Your Accident-Related Expenses

To determine the value of your expenses, your personal injury team in Ocala will review the following: 

  • The financial losses you incurred because of the accident and your injuries 
  • The impact of your injuries on your life 
  • The effect of your loved one’s passing on your life
  • Your ability to work
  • Your mobility 
  • Your anticipated healthcare costs 
  • The length of your recovery period 

Documenting the value of your damages in a personal injury case is key to recovering a fair settlement from the other party’s insurance company or proving your case in court.

Without understanding how much you lost, you cannot understand if you are getting a fair offer.

You Have a Limited Window of Action

Our team likes to get started on personal injury cases as soon as possible. It allows us to begin our investigation and talk to any eyewitnesses while the incident is still fresh in their minds. In addition, it allows us to go to work early to protect your rights. 

You Generally Have Four Years to File Your Lawsuit

Under Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you may have up to four years to file a personal injury lawsuit. The most common personal injury cases, such as motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent drivers, fall under the four-year time limit. 

However, many cases also call for a much shorter window, which includes nursing home abuse cases and instances where we need to file a case against a government agency. 

You Could Have Two Years to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d), you could have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This deadline applies to most personal injury cases but could be subject to change based on your situation. 

Regardless, the sooner you connect with our team, the sooner you can learn more about your financial recovery options.

We Can Prove Negligence in Your Case

To secure compensation for your damages, our team must prove the following: 

  • Another party had an obligation to act responsibly or keep you from getting hurt. 
  • The other party failed in this obligation. 
  • You were injured in an accident or incident due to carelessness or recklessness.
  • You suffered losses. 

When an accident victim can prove liability and document their expenses and other losses, they can often recover a payout by filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. Bogin, Munns & Munns can handle this process on your behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions

The party responsible is liable for all the damage or cause they harm, not just the amount covered by their insurance.

Insurance is used as a buffer to keep the out of pocket costs at a minimum.

However, if the expenses exceed the amount covered by the insurance, the liable party is responsible for paying the difference.

The problem then arises of making the liable party actually pay.

They need to have assets and/or income.

If the burden of paying becomes too great, the liable party may file bankruptcy, discharging the remaining obligation (with limited exceptions).

The deed to real property is the written legal document that transfers the ownership of the property from the seller to the buyer.

In exchange for the purchase price, the deed gives the buyer formal title.

However, the interest in the real property is not completely transferred until the deed is delivered to the buyer and accepted by the buyer.

Once the deed is accepted, it should be recorded as soon as possible.

The deed needs to be recorded with the county clerk in the same county as the property is located as soon as possible.
Recording the deed gives notice to all potential buyers in the future that the buyer has an ownership interest in that piece of real property, and tracks ownership by giving the names of all the buyers and sellers in chronological order.

A search must be performed at the county clerk’s office in order to make sure that a seller has legal ownership of the real property they are attempting to buy.

This search should be done prior to the sale of any real property.

Usually a title insurance agent will conduct the search to find if there has been anything defective in past transfers and conveyances.

Any defects that are found can be excluded from the title insurance coverage, which makes it important for the buyer to review the title insurance.

All potential lawsuits in Florida are controlled by Statue and case law which determines where the Complaint must be filed. Generally, the lawsuit must be filed in the County where the accident occurred. It is vitally important that you contact an attorney with experience in Wrongful Death claims to determine where the claim must be filed.
