Tampa Auto Accident Attorney Discusses What is Recoverable in a Car Accident
If you are injured in an automobile accident, there are basically two types of damages that you can receive. One, to repair your vehicle and two for the injuries that you suffer in the accident under the damages available to repair your vehicle.. If your damage to your vehicle amounts to over 80% of the fair market value of your vehicle, your vehicle will not be repaired instead they will provide you with a fair market value of your vehicle at the time of the accident, plus applicable sales tax so you can go out and buy another vehicle.
In terms of your damages for your personal injury, your bodily injuries, you have two types of damages, you have economic damages which are unpaid medical bills, those that are not paid by your PIP and unpaid wage loss that’s not paid by your PIP. In addition there are non-economic damages to include pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, disability or impairment and also loss of the ability to enjoy life’s pleasures. These non-economic damages are very subjective in nature and in order to be eligible for those you basically need to have suffered a permanent injury as a result of the accident, something that your doctor will render his opinion on in his reports and his records.
