Recoverable Damages After a Lighthouse Point Truck Accident
It can be tempting to accept a speedy settlement when a truck accident leaves you with increasing medical bills and prevents you from working. Our truck accident lawyer serving Lighthouse Point will explain why it is important to wait for all the facts before settling your case.
Damages we help you recover by proving their monetary value include:
- Current and future medical bills
- Current and future lost income
- Loss of future earning capacity

- Loss of enjoyment of life
Our investigation into your damages will include a carefully detailed list of your recoverable damages with the documents and evidence that support their value.

Your Right To File a Lighthouse Point Lawsuit Could Be Limited to Only Two Years
Your potential lawsuit against the at-fault party or parties in your case must be filed in accordance with the applicable statute of limitations. Florida Statutes § 95.11 generally gives you:
- Two years to file your personal injury lawsuit
- Two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit
While mandatory, the statute of limitations is complex and can be hard to comply with without legal guidance. Certain exceptions can alter your filing deadline, giving you even less time to file. Our legal team will explain how the statute of limitations is determined in your case and the steps we take to file your lawsuit on time.
