How can a car accident victim recover compensation for physical pain and suffering?

According to Florida case law as of the date of this article, if the physical pain and suffering results from the wrongful acts of the defendant, the plaintiff can recover compensation. The amount is left to the jurors to decide and can be subject to correction by the courts.

See: Loftin v. Wilson, 67 So. 2d 185 - Fla: Supreme Court 1953
