    People sometimes chalk their injuries up to unfortunate accidents and assume nobody is to blame. In reality, many accidents are the direct result of someone’s negligence, and someone can be held liable in a lawsuit.

    The damages will vary based on how you were injured and the extent of your bodily harm. Economic damages related to monetary losses (e.g., medical bills) and non-economic damages (e.g., pain and suffering) can be significant. You need evidence to prove your claims, which can be difficult to obtain in certain circumstances. Much evidence will come from the scene of your injuries, but it might also come from elsewhere. An attorney can help you locate important evidence, calculate damages, develop effective legal strategies, and negotiate a settlement.

    Personal injury law is a broad legal field, and it can be hard to know where to begin. Our Coral Springs, FL personal injury lawyers can help you pursue a lawsuit to get compensation. For a free evaluation of your case, call The Law Offices of David I. Fuchs, Injury & Accident Lawyer, P.A. at (954) 568-3636.

    Personal Injury Claims in Coral Springs, FL

    A personal injury case, by its very nature, must involve some bodily harm to the plaintiff. If you suffered a loss that was not physical (e.g., financial, property, emotional), you might not be able to file a personal injury case but instead would file what’s called a civil case. Our Coral Springs, FL personal injury lawyers can help you determine what kind of case you have and the best way to strategize for success.

    Personal injury lawsuits span a vast gamut of laws and rules, and not every personal injury lawyer handles all personal injury cases. Our team has experience with a variety of personal injury cases, including the following:

    • Truck Accidents
    • Car Accidents
    • Bike Accidents
    • Lyft and Uber Accidents
    • Bus Crashes
    • Cruise Ship Injuries
    • Taxi and Passenger Van Accidents
    • Wrongful Death
    • Motorcycle Accident
    • Pedestrian Accidents
    • ATV Accidents

    Possible Damages You Can Claim in a Coral Springs, FL Personal Injury Case

    Damages in personal injury lawsuits are connected to your losses, injuries, and expenses. Damages are different in every case, making it very important to discuss your situation with a qualified attorney. Our Coral Springs, FL personal injury lawyers can help you understand the extent and value of the potential damages in your case.

    Economic damages are related to the money you lose because of your injuries. In personal injury lawsuits, medical bills often dominate economic damages calculations, especially if injuries are severe. Many plaintiffs require long-term medical care, and future medical costs might also be claimed. Additional economic damages might include the income you lose because you are too injured to return to work. You can also claim the value of lost or destroyed property, such as your totaled vehicle after a car accident.

    Non-economic damages are somewhat more difficult to assess because they are not connected to money. Instead, non-economic damages related to personal experiences and their value are very subjective. Physical pain, emotional trauma, humiliation, and even damage to your personal or professional reputation might be claimed as part of your non-economic damages.

    Punitive damages are rare but still possible under very special circumstances. Unlike the above-mentioned damages, punitive damages are not designed to compensate plaintiffs for their losses but are meant to punish the defendant. Under Fla. Stat. § 768.72(1), punitive damages in any civil action will not be awarded unless we can show, by clear and convincing evidence, that the defendant committed acts of intentional misconduct or gross negligence. Punitive damages might be significant depending on how outrageous or shocking the defendant’s actions were.

    How to Gather Evidence for a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Coral Springs, FL

    If you are going to prove your claims in court, you will need evidence. Evidence is tricky and unpredictable. In some cases, evidence exists in abundance, and plaintiffs have little to no trouble proving their claims. In other cases., evidence is scarce, and proving your claims might be challenging. A lack of evidence does not mean your claims are invalid. Our Coral Springs, FL personal injury attorneys have experience with various forms of evidence and can help you find what you need.

    Evidence is often fleeting, and photos are a great way to preserve evidence for future use. For example, after a car or truck accident, many injured drivers take photos of the accident scene to submit to insurance companies and possibly their attorneys. These photos often preserve details about the scene of the incident that would otherwise be lost once law enforcement clears the scene away.

    Witnesses are sometimes considered unreliable, but their testimony is often very powerful and persuasive to jurors. People with first-hand knowledge relevant to your case can be called to testify in court. The more people whose testimony aligns with your version of events, the more likely you will get compensation for your damages.

    Medical records are crucial in personal injury lawsuits. Often, trials take time to prepare for, and by the time the trial date arrives, plaintiffs’ injuries are healed. We will need your medical records to show the jury the extent of your injuries. If these records are especially complex or technical, we can have a medical expert testify about your injuries and how they were caused.

    “…the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated”

    Fuchs was my car accident attorney and was very responsive from the first call. I had medical care the next day and the whole process was smooth. They handled everything with the insurance companies and coordinated all of the necessary medical information. It was a long process and in the end the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated I am more than happy and grateful for the outcome.

    “…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

    I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

    “Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

    Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
