Personal Injury in Central Florida

The laws governing fault, compensation, and insurance in personal injury cases can be complex and confusing. They also vary from state to state, so it’s important to have an attorney on your side who is knowledgeable and experienced in the Florida legal system. Here’s what you need to know about your claim.

What Is a “No-Fault” State?

The phrase “no-fault” refers to a law stating that both parties involved in a motor vehicle accident must file claims with their auto insurance companies, regardless of fault. Because of this, all Florida drivers are required to carry at least $10,000 of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance per accident.

But PIP insurance only covers a certain amount of medical bills and lost wages. If your injuries are serious enough to meet the law’s injury threshold or your expenses exceed your PIP coverage, you may choose to file a claim against the other driver in a no-fault state.

How Long Do I Have to File A Claim?

The period during which you may file a claim for injuries sustained in an accident is known as the statute of limitations. Florida’s personal injury statute of limitations is four years. Some exceptions, such as medical malpractice claims, have a statute of limitations of two years.

After a car accident, you have four years from the date of the crash to file a claim against the other party and recover damages not covered by your insurance. Getting an experienced attorney to work on your case as early as possible will allow you to recover the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

What Is Comparative Negligence?

In states with comparative negligence rules, such as Florida, the law considers the contribution of each party to an accident. Let’s say one driver runs a stop sign and T-bones another driver who was speeding. While the first driver is most at-fault, the second driver’s negligence also contributed to the accident.

In these cases, an injured party’s compensation may be reduced by the percentage of fault they are found liable for. Insurance companies frequently use comparative negligence during settlement negotiations to lower the amount they are required to pay. Because of this, it’s important to have an attorney on your side who knows the law and will keep them honest.

Will I Have to Go to Trial?

Most auto accident claims can be settled out of court through negotiations with insurance companies. In some cases, certain factors can complicate a case and make it necessary for a judge or jury to hear it in court. When an insurance company won’t negotiate in good faith, for example, litigation may be required to recover the full amount of compensation you’re owed.

When a case does have to go to trial, the attorneys of López & Humphries, PA are well known for fighting for their clients in Florida courts. While we will always strive to settle your claim out of court, our lawyers are preparing to litigate on your behalf from the moment we take on your case.
