What Damages Can I Recover in My Fort Myers Personal Injury Case?
Right now, you may have many damages you’d like to recover in your case. There may be additional damages you can recover, and your lawyer will help you identify them. However, your insurance, such as your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, may limit the damages you can claim and get compensation for.
Generally, basic insurance allows for only basic financial damages, such as medical bills, and doesn’t allow for damages like pain and suffering. However, your lawyer could recover these other damages for you. Your lawyer will pursue such damages:
- All your medical expenses and post-medical expenses
- Your lost wages, as well as any loss in your wage-earning potential
- Your expenses for any services you can’t provide, such as childcare
- The costs of repairing or replacing damaged/destroyed personal property, like your car
- Physical impairment or disability
- Your physical pain and suffering
- Your mental and emotional suffering
- Any loss of quality of life you experience
- Loss of companionship and other wrongful death damages if you lost a loved one in an accident
Your Options for Recovering Damages
You and your lawyer can review your options for recovering your due damages. Your lawyer can help you understand your insurance coverage better and file your claim for you. Additionally, your lawyer can sue the other party for more damages.
Alternatively, if you were in a vehicle accident, your lawyer could possibly pursue damages through your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage is important in Florida as there are many uninsured and underinsured motorists in the state. There may be other options you and your lawyer can explore.

How Much Can I Recover in My Lee County Personal Injury Case?
Your recovery will depend on your damages, and you deserve full compensation for them. However, insurance can also limit the amounts you can recover for certain damages, like medical expenses. Your lawyer could recover the full amounts for your damages, such as by suing the liable party.
Your Lawyer Can Valuate Your Case
Before your lawyer begins negotiating with the insurer or fighting for your damages in court, your lawyer can determine the value of your case. To do this, your lawyer will calculate all your monetary damages in your case.
They will then attribute monetary values to your non-monetary damages, like your physical pain, and then add these values to your monetary damages.
This service will help prevent the insurer from devaluing your damages and your case.
What Is the Deadline for a Fort Myers Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In Florida, generally, the deadline for a personal injury lawsuit is four years from the date of the accident, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11. However, uninsured motorist coverage has a statute of five years due to a breach of contract, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(2). The deadline for a wrongful death lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the deceased person’s death.
Your lawyer can file your lawsuit on time and take care of the rest of the litigation process.
