Accident Attorney Serving Tampa, FL for Claims Involving Loss of Consortium
If you or a member of your family has been injured in an accident, an accident attorney from the law firm of Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa can help in a variety of different ways. In Florida, in addition to the compensation the injured party is entitled to receive, a close family member such as a spouse or child has the ability to file a claim for what’s known as loss of consortium. While an accident attorney from our firm will be happy explain more, the gist of a claim for loss of consortium is that a close family member has been deprived of a loved one’s companionship, care, and support as a result of a serious personal injury. Although it is often difficult to predict what a claim for loss of consortium is worth in dollar terms, hiring an attorney that has experience in handling these specific types of cases is good way of ensuring that your rights as a spouse, parent, or child are also protected.
The injured party him- or herself is, of course, entitled to financial compensation for his or her accident-related expenses. As with claims for loss of consortium, an accident attorney can help identify what these expenses are. They can include:
- Lost wages
- Hospital bills
- Pain and suffering
- Car repair
- And more
