Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions
If you walk away from a car accident and simply feel a bit shaken up, should you go to the doctor?
Should you speak to the other driver’s insurance company?
The reckless driver who caused your accident faces charges filed by police. Can you also file a lawsuit against the reckless driver?
After a serious accident in a high construction work zone, who may be at fault?
If you are injured in a collision with an uninsured motorist or an underinsured motorist in Florida, who pays for your medical bills?
Florida is one of the few states that does not require motorists to carry liability insurance to cover bodily injuries to other motorists. Since Florida is a no-fault insurance state, your insurance company should pay for your medical coverage no matter who is at fault. But from years of experience, we have observed that insurance companies often refuse to pay the claim or offer pennies on the dollar to settle a claim. As part of being a civil trial lawyer, I studied the uninsured motorist laws and Florida no-fault insurance regulations. It’s often advantageous to bring a first-party claim against your own insurance company to ensure that you receive full compensation for your injuries.
If your spouse dies in an automobile accident caused by another driver, how long do you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit?
In Florida, the immediate family of a car accident fatality victim has two years from the date of their loved one’s death to file a wrongful death claim. But it’s important to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so that they can work to preserve valuable evidence before it is lost.
