Injured In A Boca Raton Car Accident? Recover Full Compensation For Your Injuries And Other Losses

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident and someone else is to blame, you have rights under personal injury law. Injured car accident victims may file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for their accident injuries and other losses, known as “damages”. Damages may include a range of different losses, including any of the following:

If you have suffered losses that do not have a specific monetary value, such as emotional pain and suffering, the Florida court will take into consideration several factors to assign a monetary value to those losses.

Important Legal Deadlines For Filing Car Accident Claims In Florida

There are important legal deadlines for filing car accident claims, known as “statutes of limitations”. Statutes of limitations are established by each state and vary based on the type of claim that is being filed. Florida’s statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim — which falls under the category of a personal injury claim — is four years from the date of the accident. If the car accident resulted in a death and the family of the victim wishes to file a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for the accident, then the statute of limitations is two years from the time the victim died. 

These are very important legal deadlines. If you do not file your car accident claim within four years of the accident, the court may dismiss your case. Once your case is dismissed, you will not be able to recover any compensation for your losses.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Boca Raton, Florida

FAQ: I don’t understand how the car accident claims process works with Florida’s no fault car accident laws. Can you help?

Yes. Florida follows no-fault car insurance laws that require the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) part of your car insurance coverage to cover the medical expenses and other losses of anyone that is covered under your car insurance policy, regardless of who is at fault for the car accident. But PIP coverage has limits and does not provide compensation for pain and suffering and other non-monetary damages. If your injuries meet Florida’s standard of “serious injury”, you may file a third-party insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Lawlor, White & Murphey specializes in personal injury law and has extensive experience filing Florida car accident claims.

FAQ: If I can’t meet Florida’s legal filing deadline for car accident claims, can I get an extension?

Statutes of limitations — the legal deadlines for filing civil claims in a state’s court — are very important deadlines. If you do not meet the deadline, your case will be dismissed. In unusual circumstances, the court will extend the filing deadline. If you think you may be unable to meet Florida’s legal filing deadline, consult with an experienced car accident attorney immediately.
