Florida’s No-Fault Auto Insurance
Florida is one of the few states to carry no-fault auto insurance. No-Fault means the client can claim 80% of medical costs and/or 60% of wages up to $10k under their own policy. Thereafter the client must make claim against at-fault party or under his or her own uninsured/underinsured policy.
This is particularly helpful for accidents that involved a hit-and-run or uninsured driver. In some cases, car accident victims can still file lawsuits to recover compensation that may not be provided by their auto insurance policy.
When to Get a Car Accident Attorney
Contacting a car accident lawyer in Jacksonville, FL will immediately put you in a stronger negotiating position when dealing with insurance companies.
There are a lot of factors to consider when determining the value of an auto accident settlement. Many people make the mistake of accepting the first settlement the insurance company offers because they don't want the headache or the hassle - but with the help of an attorney you can avoid the headache and still ensure that you receive a fair settlement.
Definite Signs You Need a Car Accident Lawyer:
- The at-fault driver caused more damage than what is covered in your insurance policy,
- Your insurer seems to be dragging its feet, OR
- You’ve been offered a settlement that doesn’t seem as high as it should be
When these types of situations arise, we would strongly recommend contacting a Jacksonville car accident lawyer at Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. We will fight to secure the full compensation that you deserve after a collision.
Car Accident Injuries and Compensation in Florida
The financial costs that follow a serious vehicle accident can be tremendous and incredibly stressful. If your accident was caused by another driver, then you should not be left paying for their negligence or recklessness.
In Florida, there are few limitations placed on car accident compensation, which can include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Loss of income
- Property damage
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- And more
Because Florida is a "pure comparative negligence" state, compensation will be calculated based on the percentages of fault for each driver. For example, if you are 20% at fault for your accident, then your recovery will be limited to 80% compensation.
