- Examining all damages you incurred and determining a monetary value for each one
- Seeking the appropriate compensation from the liable party’s insurance company
- Providing regular case updates and legal support during your case

Recoverable Damages in a Florida Keys Scuba Diving Accident
You likely suffered economic and non-economic damages when the scuba diving accident occurred. We will assess your case for both damage types and assign a dollar value to your case. Economic damages are direct out-of-pocket costs from the accident, such as:
- Medical bills, rehabilitation expenses
- Lost income, including wages, tips, bonuses, and benefits
- Reduced or lost earning ability
- Property damage (e.g., scuba diving equipment)
- Other accident-related expenses
Non-economic damages are immeasurable losses that vary from accident to accident, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Disability, scarring, and disfigurement
- Loss of life enjoyment if you no longer can enjoy your hobbies because of injuries from the accident
Some Families Can Recover Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a family member in a scuba diving accident in the Florida Keys, you may be able to file a wrongful death action for damages. These losses include:
- The decedent’s medical bills
- Final arrangements, including their funeral, burial, or cremation costs
- Household income the decedent would have earned
- Other related losses
Florida law designates which family members are eligible for these damages. We can explain how wrongful damages work in the state during your free consultation.

Time Limits Apply to Injury Cases in Florida
People who suffered injuries and losses can pursue compensation from insurers, but if they want to take legal action to recover monetary awards, they must file a lawsuit and have a limited time to do it. The statute of limitations is generally four years, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). Parties that file a wrongful death action generally have two years, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d).
The attorneys at Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help you with either action. We advise you to start as early as possible on your case. Once the deadline expires, you won’t be able to sue the liable party for your damages, leaving you to handle the financial burden of the scuba diving accident on your own.
