In the aftermath of a car accident, you can incur a range of unexpected expenses and losses, including medical care and lost wages while you recover.

Your initial case review is cost and obligation free. At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, our team will evaluate your case and advise you on the best course of action. Our Florida car accident lawyer will work hard to meet your specific needs and provide outstanding service and support throughout your case. You will work with our partners, directly, and receive personalized legal care.
Compensation a Florida Car Accident Lawyer Will Request on Your Behalf
Understanding and determining the value of your car accident case is a complicated legal matter. Our car accident lawyer will explain what damages are and how they apply to your personal injury case. Per Florida Statutes § 768.81, you can recover:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Property loss
- Lost wages and income
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Disability and disfigurement
- Mental and emotional distress
We will not tax you or your family with gathering proof. As part of your evidence file, your lawyer will collect bills, receipts, and other documents that prove the value of your compensation request.
If your family lost a loved one in the accident, our law firm will help you recover a range of wrongful death damages. These can include the decedent’s funeral costs and your loss of their financial and familial support.
How the Statute of Limitations Affects Your Florida Car Accident Case
Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11. If your lawsuit is not filed on time, it could be dismissed without being heard. You could also be barred from filing it at all. We work hard to help you avoid that.
Complying with the statute of limitations is an important part of your car accident case. If either occurs, you will lose the legal ability to seek financial compensation from the negligent driver. Our legal team will investigate any circumstances of your accident to determine the applicable filing deadline and any potential changes to it.

The Role of Negligence in Recovering Damages After a Florida Car Accident
When our car accident lawyer serving Florida represents you, we listen to your version of events to understand what happened. We also investigate the accident to identify and document the negligence that led to it.
At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, our investigative team will:
- Obtain your official police report
- Locate and interview witnesses
- Consult relevant expert witnesses
- Canvass for photos and videos
Proving negligence means proving the driver owed you a duty of care, their actions breached it, the collision would not have occurred without their actions, and the accident had financial consequences. Our familiarity with car accident cases means we understand how fault is determined and its importance to your case. We will build a case file that contains evidence of these factors.
How Our Florida Car Accident Lawyer Proves the At-Fault Driver’s Negligence
Each side in a car accident dispute—your representative and the at-fault party’s legal and insurance representative—will require proof of the accident’s cause. While each case is different, the type of evidence we collect that can help determine fault includes:
- Official police accident report
- Police diagrams and narratives
- Accident reconstruction report
- Lay witness statements
- Expert witness testimonials
- Photos or video footage
Our legal team will build the strongest possible case file, which can do more than prove the cause of your accident. It can also prove its resulting costs and help steer your case toward a settlement versus a trial.
