Auto accidents are the most usual of personal injury claims. However, in order to win your car accident claim you must prove the other driver was negligent. Negligence means the other driver failed to do what a responsible driver would do under the same circumstances. Examples of negligence include: not following traffic conditions, talking on the phone or texting while you are driving, failing to stop at red lights or stop signs, and exceeding the speed limit.

In certain circumstances, the driver plus the owner of the auto may be held accountable for an accident caused by the driver. For instance, a driver might be working when an accident takes place. In this case, the company could be held responsible for the damages.

Damages are the type of of injuries or losses that result from an auto accident in which you may be compensated for. In car accident cases Florida Legislation will let you recover money for lost pay and for the loss of the ability to earn wages from the accident date and forward, for health-related expenditures brought about instantly by the accident and that could be on-going in the future damage to property due to the accident, as well as for pain and suffering.

With regard to “pain and suffering”, Florida Law places an additional requirement on the injured person in order to obtain money in the event the negligent motorist had PIP or No-Fault coverage at the time the accident occurred.

In this case, the injured party will need to demonstrate that the accident caused at least 1 of 4 things to take place: 1) the accident resulted in death or, 2) permanent and significant scarring or disfigurement or, 3) loss of important bodily function or, 4) permanent injury. Oft times the insurance company for the negligent motorist will employ a physician to examine the injured party to determine if one of the four criteria was met in order to claim money for pain and suffering. If the negligent driver was required to have PIP insurance coverage but failed to have the protection when the accident occurred the injured person can seek money for pain and suffering without proving one of the four criteria.

In Florida, anyone who is the owner of an automobile intended for use on the road must buy Personal Injury Protection Insurance (often known as No-Fault or PIP insurance). This insurance is used to pay for 80% of your medical expenditures and 60% of your lost pay up to a combined maximum total of $10,000. When you select a deductible on your PIP insurance then the most it will pay out will be $10,000 less the deductible.
