Car Accidents Can Result in Permanent Disabilities 

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, there are many injury related impairments that  can result in serious disabilities. Florida’s personal injury protection insurance, combined  with no-fault property damage coverage, offers a safety net for those involved in relatively  minor car accidents, or who have been involved in more serious accidents and need some  compensation right away. But, for those who suffer more serious injuries, need ongoing  medical care, or have a longer-term loss of income, PIP will likely be insufficient. Generally, personal injuries are classified as either permanent or temporary. The two  terms are used basically to describe the anticipated duration of an injury and the degree  of severity of the injury. Thus, if an injury is conceived as one which would continue  throughout the remainder of an individual’s lifetime, it is said to be permanent in nature.  Conversely, if it is reasonably probable that the injury victim will attain a full or complete  recovery within some reasonable future, the injury is classified as temporary regardless  of how severe or extensive the injury might otherwise appear. Another common  classification of disabilities relates to whether they are total or only partial. These terms  refer to the actual extent of the plaintiff’s injuries regardless of whether they are  permanent or temporary in duration. For example, an injury that causes one to lose an  arm and one that causes another person to become a total quadriplegic may both be  considered permanent in nature since both are probably certain to continue throughout  the future. However, most courts would not consider the loss of an arm to constitute a  total functional disability. with total quadriplegic injury Conversely, the victim of a serious  automobile accident who is hospitalized following an accident who makes a full and  complete recovery, would still be considered to have been totally disabled during the  period of hospitalization.
