Our Mission Is to Seek Compensation for Your Losses
Our history of successes speaks for itself. We once recovered $5 million for a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a defective tire. In another situation, we recovered $1 million for a family who lost a loved one due to a collision.
We are determined to fight for the best possible outcome for your case. We are committed not only to recovering compensation for your accident-related losses, but we will treat you like family every step of the way.
Some compensable damages in your case could include:
Being injured in a side-impact collision can come with many related healthcare expenses. However, if your claim is successful, you will not have to pay for any of them.
Examples of recoverable healthcare expenses in your case could include:
- Emergency transportation services
- Residency at a specialized care facility
- Adaptive devices, like a wheelchair and crutches
Depending on the nature of your impairments, you could recover additional types of medical-related losses.
Injury Epidemiology suggests that the injuries caused by side-impact collisions can have a significant impact on a person’s health, often leading to severe injuries. As such, you may have missed time from work during your recovery period.
Our team can include these losses in your claim:
- Promotional opportunities
- Employee benefits
Your employment records will provide more insight into the income-related losses that can be recovered through legal action.
Loss of Future Earning Capacity
Severe injuries such as spinal cord trauma, a traumatic brain injury, and nerve damage can stop you from working at your current job. If you need to work in another field because of your impairments and you will earn less money as a result, you could include the harm to your earning power as part of your personal injury case.
Property Damage Costs
The speed and angle at which your accident happened could determine the severity of your car’s damage. Your vehicle may be damaged or unable to drive altogether. If so, we can determine the value of your car and pursue its value from the liable insurer.
Pain and Suffering
We can calculate the monetary value of your pain and suffering based on multiple facts of your case.
Some of these details may include:
- The type of injuries you suffered
- Your anticipated recovery period
- The cost of your economic damages
- Whether your accident resulted in any fatalities
- The extent of your mental anguish
These are just some of the damages that you may be able to recover by filing an insurance claim or a lawsuit. Do not worry about the stress involved with calculating the cost of your damages; allow Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers to handle your case.

We Can Manage the Entirety of the Financial Recovery Process
We have the legal resources and experience to pursue even the most complex cases. We will start building your case by evaluating:
- The cause of your accident
- Who was involved
- The cost of your damages and the severity of your injuries
- The liable driver’s insurance policies
From there, we will be able to strategize a course of action for your case. We will begin by filing an insurance claim. We will negotiate on your behalf until we reach an agreement on a fair settlement.
If not, then we can file a lawsuit and go to court. The outcome of your case at that point will be decided by a judge.
What You Can Do After Getting Hurt
With all this discussion about how a Sarasota side-impact collisions lawyer could help you, we have hardly touched on how you could help yourself. While every case is different, here are some of the things that could assist with the financial recovery process:
- Complete your doctor’s recommended course of medical treatment
- Keep records of your economic damages, including receipts, invoices, and billing statements
- Do not talk about your legal matters on social media
- Do not give a recorded statement to the insurer
- Take pictures of your external injuries and car’s damage
You should also consider how Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can seek compensation for your damages.
Make Sure You Speak with a Car Accident Lawyer in Time
You have four years to file a lawsuit against the negligent party, per Florida Statutes §95.11. While some exceptions under Florida Statutes §95.051 may apply to your case, if you fail to act within this period, you could lose the right to recover compensation for your injury-related losses.
