What is a permanent injury?
That is a very good question. In Florida, in order to be compensated for pain and suffering and those types of non economic damages, you must prove that you have a permanent injury if you are involved in a car accident. The proof on the permanent injury is complex. Keep in mind though, it does not require that you have any type of a disability or that you are crippled. An experienced attorney can sit down with you and explain the concept of permanent injury and how he or she will go about proving it to the insurance company and the jury if necessary.
