Receive Compensation from Personal Injury Protection Insurance
Florida is among the states in the US to require all drivers to have no-fault insurance coverage. In fact, should you be involved in a car accident and receive medical treatment for the injuries you have sustained, you are entitled to file a claim with your Personal Injury Protection insurance.
In order to be eligible for this coverage, you are required to seek medical treatment within 14 days of the accident. Actually, through this insurance, you can receive up to 60% of lost wages and up to 80% of medical bills. And, people who do not receive medical care within the 14-day timeframe are not eligible to file a Personal Injury Protection claim.
Pursue a Claim Against the At-Fault Party
In addition to Personal Injury Protection insurance, you may pursue a claim against the at-fault party of the car accident. Although, Florida law’s statute of limitations has a four-year timeframe in which to file a claim of this nature. Or compensation may be sought if you have sustained serious injury as a result of the car accident, which is defined in law as:
- Significant and permanent loss of important body function
- Permanent disability or impairment
- Permanent and significant scarring or disfigurement
As well as, in the case of death, the family of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party.
Plus, when seeking compensation, you may be eligible to recoup both economic and non-economic damages following a car accident.
Examples of economic damages include:
- Lost wages (past and future)
- Medical expenses
- Personal care costs
- Related travel expenses
Examples of non-economic damages include:
- Emotional stress
- Physical pain
- Decreased quality of life
- Debilitating and permanent injuries
