Determining the Value of Your Car Accident Claim
If you’re considering a claim or lawsuit, you probably want to know how much you can get for your damages. According to research, the average cost of a vehicle-related injury ranges from $24,400 to $62,500. In the event of a life-altering injury or death, victims may be entitled to additional compensation for non-economic damages.
By filing a claim, you may be able to secure compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income and wages
- Lost future earnings
- Property damage
In short, the value of your case depends on the unique circumstances that surround it. Unfortunately, the insurance company may not help you accurately determine the amount of your loss; only a Tampa car accident lawyer can help you truly determine the magnitude of your damages and how much compensation you should pursue.

Information About Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
In order to collect compensation through PIP, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of your initial accident. If you don’t, PIP will not pay for your medical bills. In many cases, PIP coverage is capped at $2,500, and covers 60% of your lost wages and 80% of your medical expenses. If you suffered an emergency medical condition – one that could immediately jeopardize your health – your PIP coverage may pay for more than $2,500 of your expenses. Every case is different though, and yours may be subject to limitations and other factors.
When to File an Auto Accident Lawsuit
The Tampa car accident attorneys at Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez may be able to help you seek additional compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, even if you have already pursued compensation through PIP. You may have the right to seek additional compensation if you sustained a serious, permanent injury in your auto accident.
Injuries that may qualify you for additional damages include:
