What Does Florida’s No-Fault Insurance System Mean?
When there is a car accident, chances are high that there will be resulting property damage and bodily injury. There may be damage to the vehicles and other property, and persons in the vehicles may also suffer bodily injury from the impact of the cars. Traditionally, after an accident, there would be an investigation to establish fault and the party found to be at fault would be held responsible for the damages caused by the accident. Under this traditional fault system, there could be considerably long delays in victims getting compensated as parties battle over which party was at fault for the accident.
Florida’s no-fault insurance system seeks to eliminate the conflicts and delays that can arise after a car accident. Florida’s no-fault system requires all Florida-registered vehicles be insured with personal injury protection (PIP) and property damage liability (PDL) at the time the vehicle is registered. When there is a car accident, the damages suffered by any party involved in the accident is covered by their own insurance policy. There is no need to establish which party was at fault for the accident.
Having insurance coverage is no guarantee that the insurance company will honor your claims without conducting their own investigation. The insurance company may come to the conclusion that your damages are less than your claim or that your damages exceed your policy coverage. If you are having difficulties getting full compensation for the damages you suffer, you should speak to an experienced Destin car accident lawyer who knows the law and can represent your interests against the insurance companies.
What Should You Do After a Car Accident?
The first thing to do after an accident is to make sure that you get medical attention if you have been injured. If your injuries do not require immediate hospital attention, document the accident scene with photos or videos, and get the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. Get a police report and file a claim for your losses through your own car insurance company as soon as possible.
At no time should you admit to any fault for the accident because that might be used against you if you need to pursue a lawsuit later. You also should not speak with any representatives from the other party’s insurance company.
What if the Other Party is Uninsured or Underinsured?
Although every car owner is required to insure their vehicles for bodily injury, death, and property damage, there are car owners that do not comply with this requirement. If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may face some difficulty if you are seriously injured and your damages exceed your insurance policy’s coverage limits. You should speak with an experienced Destin car accident attorney who can talk to you about your legal options for getting compensation from the uninsured or underinsured party.
