Car Insurance Requirements in Florida
Every car owner in Florida is required to carry an insurance policy for personal injury protection (PIP) and property damage liability (PDL). Every car insurance policy must have a minimum of $10,000 in PIP and a minimum of $10,000 in PDL.
The PIP covers 80 percent of all necessary and reasonable medical expenses related to the crash up to $10,000, regardless of who was at fault for the crash. PIP also covers up to 60 percent of lost wages as a result of the crash.
Florida’s No-Fault Insurance
Florida is a no-fault car insurance state. This means that a person who suffers damages from a car crash is entitled to make a claim against their own PIP and PDL policies regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
The objective of the no-fault insurance policy is to avoid delays and suffering associated with insurance companies trying to establish fault before making any payments for the damages suffered by victims of a car crash.
While the no-fault system can make life easier for the parties involved in the accident since they only have to deal with their own insurance company, the system is not without its own challenges. For example, the required policy limit for bodily injury is $10,000. If you suffer damages beyond the $10,000 limit, you will need to look beyond your insurance company to the at-fault driver and any other parties that may be held legally responsible for your damages. This is when it is advisable to seek the help of an experienced Miami car accident attorney. At Zarzaur Law, we have the skill and resources to assist you in getting full recovery for your injuries in a car accident case.
Why You Need a Miami Car Accident Lawyer on Your Side
It is important to remember that neither yours nor the at-fault driver’s insurance company is working to protect your interests. Insurance companies are businesses focused on protecting their bottom line. Whether you are having difficulty with your own insurance company or the at-fault driver’s insurance company, you need someone knowledgeable on your side to protect your legal interests.
You could face difficulty with your insurance company if they find that your medical expenses were not necessary and reasonable. The at-fault driver’s insurance company may also drag their feet conducting their own investigation of the accident and may try to avoid responsibility for your damages by blaming you for the accident. This is when you need to have an experienced team like Zarzaur Law working for you. With our reputation behind you, the other party will know that you are prepared to pursue your claim as aggressively as necessary.
What Happens if the At-Fault Driver is Uninsured?
Although the state requires that every car owner must have PIP and PDL insurance protection, there are many uninsured drivers in Florida. Florida ranks among the top ten states with the highest percentage of uninsured drivers in the United States. If you are in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having to bear some of the cost of your damages yourself. This is a very unfair prospect for any person who is suffering from the physical and emotional pain of injuries due to no fault of their own.
If this is the position you find yourself in, you should speak with an experienced car accident attorney who will be able to advise you on your legal options to recover money from the uninsured driver. Your car accident attorney will have the resources to investigate the uninsured driver’s financial position and determine the best legal strategy to hold them financially responsible.
