Car accidents happen with startling frequency throughout Florida and nationwide. They are the cause of millions of injuries, tens of thousands of deaths, and nearly $1 trillion in economic losses in the U.S. every year, according to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Common causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Weather & road conditions
- Defective car parts
- Traffic violations
- Tired drivers
If you were seriously injured in an auto accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the person or party that caused the collision. At Dismuke Law, our legal team can advise you of your rights, your options, and how to proceed.
Florida Is a No-Fault Auto Insurance State
Florida is a no-fault auto insurance state. This means that most car accident victims will need to file claims under their own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage to recover compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and other losses, regardless of who was at fault for causing the collision. There are exceptions, however.
It is possible to file a third-party claim or lawsuit against the driver that caused your accident if you have experienced injuries that qualify under Florida law. This may include:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Significant, permanent loss of a key bodily function
- Permanent injuries
Filing a third-party insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver also opens the door to the recovery of non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, which are not available in a no-fault insurance claim.
