How Florida Car Accident Claims Work

Florida is what is known as a “no-fault” state. This means that all licensed drivers are required to carry $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) insurance in addition to their minimum liability coverage. Ostensibly, the purpose of PIP is to allow car accident victims to recover compensation for certain damages more quickly and more efficiently than they would be able to through a standard personal injury claim. However, PIP also comes with certain limitations.

While you do not have to prove that the other person was at fault in order to recover compensation through PIP, a PIP claim only allows you to recover the following:

What Are the Most Common Causes of Spine Injuries?

Florida’s no-fault system does not prevent you from bringing a personal injury claim against a negligent driver (or another liable party). However, you will need to prove that your injuries meet the state’s definition of a “serious injury” and/or that your medical bills exceed $10,000.

What Is Considered a “Serious Injury” in Florida?

You may go outside the standard no-fault system and seek compensation for the full amount of your medical bills, lost wages, and non-economic damages (e.g., pain and suffering) if you can prove that your injuries meet the state’s serious injury threshold.

Florida defines a “serious injury” as one that results in:

Most catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries and spine injuries, meet the serious injury threshold in Florida. Our Starke car accident lawyers can help you determine if you have grounds to step outside the state’s no-fault system and seek compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.

How Long Do You Have to File a Car Accident Claim in Florida?

Like other states, Florida has a statute of limitations on car accident claims. This means that you only have a certain amount of time—four years from the date of the accident—to file a lawsuit. However, other important deadlines may apply, depending on the specifics of your case.
If your loved one died in a car crash, you only have two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party. If you wish to file a PIP claim after the accident, you must seek medical attention within 14 days of the accident to avoid having your claim dismissed.
In any case, it is always better to act quickly. The sooner you get in touch with our attorneys, the sooner we can begin gathering evidence, investigating the accident, and building your case. We encourage you to reach out to our firm right away if you were recently involved in a car accident and need help filing a PIP claim or personal injury lawsuit.
