Florida: A No-Fault State
Florida is a no-fault state when it comes to car accidents. That means that regardless of the fault, the driver’s insurance provider will pay 80% of the medical cots up to the first $10,000. In Florida, this type of coverage is referred to as Personal Injury Protection. Changes in state law have mandated that individuals must be examined by a doctor within 14 days of the incident or they forfeit their right to these benefits.
Of course, people who’ve had surgeries or suffered serious injuries / disabilities know well that $10,000 does not go very far. Emergency room costs, doctors bills, specialist fees, hospital stays, follow-ups, X-rays and scans, medical equipment, and physical therapy do not come cheap. That $10,000 can be swallowed up by medical costs in the blink of an eye. That’s why you need an experienced attorney to help you achieve compensation from the at-fault parties. Injuries from car accidents can be life-changing. An experienced auto accident attorney can work for you, helping you achieve your legal goals and win the compensation you deserve under the law.
If someone who was driving under the influence or driving distracted caused you to be injured in a car accident, you have a case.

Negotiation vs. Litigation
Insurance companies are going to try to pay as little as they possibly can to settle cases. It’s part of their business model. That’s why we encourage anyone involved in an auto collision to talk to their qualified attorney—not an insurer.

Although each case is different and deserving of individualized attention, there are some types of injuries that often occur with collisions. These include but aren’t limited to:
- Injuries to the neck and back (these injuries can cause intense pain and loss of mobility)
- Head injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Cuts and scrapes
- Blood loss
- Wrongful death
These injuries can be severe but temporary or possibly even permanent. A disability can completely alter a person’s life—may even prevent them from earning a living or caring for themselves.
Injuries derived from car, truck, or motorcycle collisions may be entirely accidental in nature—or they may be the fault of someone else. If someone’s negligence or misconduct caused your car accident, you’re entitled to compensation.
