Damages That May Be Recovered
If you live in Hollywood or surrounding regions, you know that medical care, medical services, and some of the other support you may need after a serious injury is expensive in Florida. If you suffer a serious injury as the result of a trip and fall accident, you may want to seek compensation so that you can pay for some of these costs without having to dip into savings or go into debt.

You can generally recover for any losses or damages you have suffered directly as a result of your injuries. If you can prove that a property owner knew or should have known about a hazard but failed to respond appropriately and that failure led to your injury, you may be able to recover for:
- Lost time at work (including any future wages you expect to lose because of your injury)
- Any property damage you incurred during the fall
- Medical bills (including any expected future medical bills)
- Pain and suffering
- At-home care or nursing home care
- Medical services, such as therapy or rehabilitation
- Medication you need to take for your injury
- Any medical devices you need (such as braces or crutches)
- Any incidental expenses that you incur
- Additional costs related to your injuries
These costs can end up totaling tens of thousands of dollars. If you are permanently and seriously injured, you may need in excess of a million dollars to pay for all your medical and living costs. The exact figure you will be able to recover will depend in part on the expected expenses related to your injuries and in part on the liable parties and specifics of your case. If you would like a sense of how much your claim may be worth, speak with a personal injury attorney. An experienced, local attorney understands medical costs in Hollywood and has likely handled similar cases, so he or she will be able to give you an estimate as to what you may be able to recover.Maximizing Your Recovery
Once you know what you can recover, keep in mind that there are things you can do to maximize your recovery. One of the best things you can do to improve your chances of fair compensation is to speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your injury. An attorney can swing into action to quickly protect your rights and can advise you on specific ways you can improve your chances of a successful settlement or court win.
