In order to file a personal injury claim for any type of car accident, the accident must be the result of negligence.

Florida Follows No-Fault Car Insurance Laws

Florida follows “no-fault” car insurance laws that can make the personal injury claims process quite confusing. Under Florida’s laws, the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) portion of your car insurance policy will cover medical bills and other losses for all those covered under your car insurance policy. PIP coverage applies regardless of who is at fault for the accident. 

But PIP coverage has limits and under PIP insurance, accident victims may not receive compensation for non-monetary damages. To recover compensation for non-monetary damages, you may file a third-party insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. But in order to do that, the injuries must meet Florida’s criteria for serious injuries. 

Car accident attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey are available to answer your questions about Florida’s car accident claims process and the firm offers a free case evaluation for car accident victims.

Coconut Creek Car Accident Victims Can Recover Full Compensation For Their Accident Injuries

When you have been hurt in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence — such as running a red light — you can recover full compensation for your accident injuries and other losses. Accident victims are protected under personal injury law, and can receive compensation by filing a personal injury claim.  

The injuries and other losses sustained by the victim are known as “damages” and they may include any of the following:

  • Cost of medical treatment
  • Hospital expenses
  • Surgical bills 
  • Cost of prescription medications 
  • Cost of future anticipated expenses for medical treatment  
  • Bills for rehabilitation treatment
  • Cost of physical therapy
  • Expenses for lab work, diagnostic scans, and imaging tests
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of one’s life enjoyment
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of future earning capacity 
  • Lost wages 
  • Loss of sick time  
  • Loss of earned vacation time 

When your personal injury claim includes losses that do not have an exact value — such as emotional pain and suffering or a loss of one’s life enjoyment — the court will consider several factors to assign a monetary value for that loss.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Coconut Creek, Florida

FAQ: How much time do I have to file my car accident claim?

The legal deadlines for filing car accident claims are established by each state and they are referred to as “statutes of limitations”. Florida’s statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims — such as car accident claims — is four years from the time of the accident. It is important to heed this deadline; failure to file your claim before the deadline expires will result in having your case dismissed. If that happens, you will have lost your opportunity to recover any damages from your car accident. If you are concerned that you will be unable to meet Florida’s filing deadline, it is best to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer regarding your case.

FAQ: Are there things I should do if I have been involved in a car accident?

Yes. The steps you take after a car accident are very important, and can help support a personal injury claim if you have been hurt. First, report the accident to the police. Law enforcement will then notify medical personnel who will tend to anyone who has been injured. Take photos and videos of the accident scene, including any damage to the vehicles, the position of the vehicles in the roadway, road conditions, traffic signs, and lighting. Also, take photos of your physical injuries. Collect the contact information from everyone involved in the accident, as well as any witnesses at the scene. Then contact an experienced Florida car accident attorney; the team at Lawlor, White & Murphey offers a free case evaluation to accident victims.
