“NO-FAULT” defined. Regardless of how your crash occurred, being in an automobile accident in Florida, even as a passenger, will typically cover your lost wages and medical bills up to $10,000. A recent change to Florida law now requires that you seek a qualified medical professional within 14-days of your accident to preserve your Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”) benefits if you think you might be injured as a result of your traffic crash.
“COMPARATIVE FAULT” defined. Method used to determine monetary recovery to drivers and passengers involved in motor vehicle accidents. Florida allows for drivers to take partial responsibility for contributing to the cause of a traffic crash. This means that it’s possible that some degree of “fault” could be apportioned to each and every driver that was involved in, or caused, a collision.

THIS CAN BE DIFFICULT, COMPLEX, AND VERY EXPENSIVE.
Insurance liability adjusters typically determine who caused a traffic crash before approving payment for claims. If an adjuster believes that you may be partially at fault, the insurance company might delay payment of claims until specialists conduct additional investigations (e.g. sworn affidavits, formal depositions, evidentiary hearings, etc.).
Because investigations and legal proceedings delay payment of claims, it could take several months for you to receive the money you need. Often times we can speed up this process and get you the money you need much faster.
