What are Florida Car Accident Laws

Personal Injury Protection Auto Insurance

Florida is one of ten states that is considered a “no-fault” car insurance state. This means individual accident victims are personally responsible for filing a claim under their own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage to recover compensation for medical expenses and other economic damages—no matter who caused the collision.

However, if you suffered severe or permanent injuries, you can file a claim or lawsuit against the other driver.

Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Distractions such as cell phones
  • Alcohol or illicit drugs
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Fatigue
  • Inclement weather conditions

    "We are extremely grateful to you and your team."
    Dear Jake, Thank you so much for your outstanding skill at convincing people to follow the laws of their contractual agreements. We tried for years as you know to no avail. Whatever you said to the Parises enabled the sale of our lot to close on time. That is all AJ and I wanted for Christmas, to be rid of that mortgage. We are extremely grateful to you and your team. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know looking for legal aid. We wish you the very best for your upcoming marriage and desires for a growing family.
