What Types Of Damages Should I Receive After Suffering Broken Ribs In A Motorcycle Accident?
After suffering broken ribs or any type of physical injury in a Florida motorcycle crash, you should be compensated accordingly. This is why it is important that you make sure you are thoroughly evaluated by a doctor, understand the prognosis of your injuries, and speak with a skilled personal injury lawyer before accepting any settlement offer from the insurance company.
The types of damages that you should be obtaining from the insurance company include:
- Medical expenses – this includes ER visit, doctor’s appointments, surgery, physical therapy, rehabilitation, medication, and other medical bills related to your injury
- Lost income – this includes the wages you have lost and are continuing to lose out on during rest and recovery
- Pain and suffering – this includes the emotional anguish and physical pain that you have endured as a result of the accident
- Out-of-Pocket Expenses – this includes money you may have spent on a taxi ride to the hospital, gasoline costs back and forth to your doctor’s appointments, and other accident-related expenses
There might be other types of damages you could be entitled to based on your injuries and the outcome of your motorcycle wreck.
