How Our Florida Car Accident Attorneys Help
Florida’s car accident laws and policies follow the “no-fault” model. In a no-fault state, if you’re injured in a car accident, your own insurance is supposed to compensate you for certain losses. This is true even if the accident resulted from someone else’s negligence.
Specifically, your insurance company may compensate you for your medical expenses and related financial losses, such as lost wages.
That doesn’t mean they’ll always offer the compensation you deserve. First of all, they’ll only compensate you up to your policy limits. That might not be enough based on the severity of the accident. Secondly, the goal of any insurance company in these circumstances is to try to justify paying out as little as possible. Your insurer may even try to argue you aren’t covered at all in these particular circumstances.
That’s why you should hire an attorney if you’re ever involved in a Florida car accident. At LJ Law Group, our Florida car accident lawyers know how insurance companies defend themselves, and will represent you aggressively to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
It’s worth noting that there are instances when you can pursue further compensation from the negligent party after being involved in a Florida car accident. Florida law allows you to do so if the accident caused “serious injury.” That means it must meet at least one of these criteria:
- The injury permanently limits full use of an organ, body system, or body part
- The injury has resulted in significant disfigurement
- The injury involved a bone fracture
- The injury left you fully disabled for at least 90 days
Coordinating with our Florida car accident law firm can help you more effectively establish your injury meets these criteria.
