Florida Car Accident Claims

Even a routine car accident can become an incredibly complex case to settle, given the complicated rules and laws for Florida car accident claims. First, Florida requires that all drivers carry personal injury protection (PIP) coverage at a minimum of $10,000. This means handling negotiation with your own insurance company first for the limits of the policy before being able to seek damages from the driver at fault for the accident. Any additional compensation above your PIP limits must then be negotiated with the other driver’s insurance company, and every insurer, including your own, will be working hard to minimize the payments made for your claim.

In addition, Florida operates as a pure comparative fault state, which means that the court determines the degree of fault for every driver involved in the car accident and reduces the overall compensation by that percentage. For example, if you are injured in a car accident with $100,000 in damages and the court finds you ten percent at fault, the overall award is reduced to $90,000. You need an experienced car accident attorney by your side to fight any claims of fault that the other driver or insurers may claim to minimize the amount paid for your injuries.
