What Types of Compensation Can You Recover?

Each personal injury claim comes with its unique circumstances and it can be difficult to determine the value of an injury claim without evaluating the specifics of the case. At Carl Reynolds Law, our Sarasota injury lawyers have handled more than 5,000 personal injury claims over the last ten years and know what fair compensation looks like.

If you've been seriously injured because of another person's negligence, you could be eligible to receive compensation for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future income loss
  • Physical therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Additionally, if your injury was caused by gross negligence, then it may be appropriate to fight for punitive damages. Some possible situations where punitive damages could be available include DUI crashes resulting in injuries or a serious accident that was caused by cell phone use. It is important to note that this type of compensation is allowed only in limited circumstances. If you have questions about the amount of compensation you are entitled to, please do not hesitate to contact our seasoned law firm today.

We Can Negotiate with the Insurance Company So You Don’t Have To

In most cases, filing a personal injury claim means filing a claim against an insurance company. Generally speaking, this is the insurance provider for the person/entity who is liable for the accident and/or your damages. Though this may seem fairly straightforward, it’s important to remember that these insurance companies are not on your side. In fact, many insurance companies will do anything they can—including devaluing claims or even denying them altogether—to lower their costs and avoid paying out large sums of money.

Negotiating with these insurance companies is often a critical element of your personal injury claim. Most cases are resolved through settlements, but you may find that the liable insurance company’s settlement offer is very low and doesn’t even begin to cover the full costs associated with your medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At this point, our attorneys can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. Because we have extensive experience handling these types of matters, we understand how insurance companies operate, as well as how to aggressively negotiate for the full compensation our clients are owed. Our attorneys are aware of common insurance company tactics—including spinning a situation to try to place undue blame on your shoulders—and we know how to fight back. We can evaluate your damages and assess the full value of your claim before sending a demand letter to the liable insurance company. If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we are prepared to take your case to court.

Catastrophic injury claims tend to be more complex than standard personal injury claims for a number of reasons. First, catastrophic injuries are generally more severe than other types of injuries, meaning victims will require more extensive medical treatment. Often, this treatment will last for months, years, or even a lifetime. As a result, you need an attorney who can fight for compensation for your current and future damages, including future medical costs, lost wages, and lost earning capacity.

Second, catastrophic injuries tend to be more complex in nature. It can be difficult to prove just how much a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury has affected the victim’s life, as well as the lives of his or her family and loved ones. You should work with an attorney who has access to medical experts and other specialists who can help prove the true nature of your or your loved one’s injuries.

car accident injury and property damageCar Accidents

If you were injured in a car accident in Sarasota, Carl Reynolds Law can help.

Our firm is well-versed in all types of car accident cases, including those involving catastrophic bodily injury and wrongful death. Throughout the process, we will provide you with the caring and attentive representation you deserve.

Alert, noting down there's a defective productDefective Products

When a product is defective, meaning it does not work properly or poses an unreasonable threat to consumers, injured victims and the surviving family members of people who die as a result of using those products can seek compensation for their damages by filing a product liability lawsuit.

Because product designers, manufacturers, and distributors are generally considered strictly liable for the products they create and sell, you typically do not need to prove that anyone acted negligently in your product liability case. However, you will need to prove that, at the time you were injured, you were using a product that was defective, that you were using the product as it was intended to be used, that you had not modified or altered the product in any way, and that you suffered damages as a result of the defective product. Our Sarasota product liability lawyers can help you with your claim.

A motorcyclist riding away wearing a helmet and glovesMotorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents are some of the most devastating of all motor vehicle crashes. Even when bikers practice safe, defensive driving techniques, they can’t always predict when another motorist will be distracted, careless, or negligent. And, because motorcyclists are relatively unprotected, they often suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries when they are struck by larger, heavier vehicles.

If you or someone you love was involved in a motorcycle accident in Sarasota, it’s important that you work with an attorney who is experienced in handing these types of cases. The right attorney will know how to investigate the crash, determine who is liable, and evaluate the full extent of your or your loved one’s injuries and damages. Here at Carl Reynolds Law, we are prepared to put our 10+ years of experience and proven track record of success on your side.

This is an accident on someone's premises. Premises Liability

If you are injured on someone else’s property—whether it’s a private residence, retail store, or public park—you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. However, not all accidents are a property owner’s fault. In order to pursue a claim, you will need to show that a dangerous condition existed and that the property owner knew of or should have reasonably known of the condition’s existence. You will also need to prove that the property owner did not take reasonable actions to address—either by fixing, repairing, or warning of—that dangerous condition and that you were injured and suffered damages due to the condition.

At Carl Reynolds Law, we are capable of handling all types of premises liability cases, including those involving slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, negligent security, and more.

Truck accidents are not like other types of motor vehicle accidents. First, victims are much more likely to suffer severe, catastrophic, and/or fatal injuries when they are struck by massive, multi-ton commercial vehicles. Second, these types of cases often become immensely complex due to the numerous potentially liable parties involved. For example, a truck driver may violate hours-of-service laws, causing him to drive while fatigued and leading to an accident. However, if his employer encourage him to driver longer hours or turned a blind eye to hours-of-service violations, the actual trucking company may be liable for the accident.

As you can see, these are complicated cases, ones that require the trained eye of an experienced truck accident attorney. At Carl Reynolds Law, we know what to look for when investigating truck accidents in Sarasota, and we know how to fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.

Being sad because of a lossWrongful Death

When an accident or act of negligence leads to death, that death is considered “wrongful” in the eyes of the law. Certain surviving family members are permitted to file a wrongful death lawsuit in order to recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income, loss of love and support, and mental anguish, among other damages.

We understand what a difficult and trying time this is for you and your family. We encourage you to reach out to our Sarasota wrongful death lawyers as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights and options. Our team can handle all of the legal aspects of your case so that you can focus on spending time with your loved ones.
