WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN PEOPLE SAY FLORIDA IS A “NO-FAULT” STATE?
What that means is, the Florida Legislature requires all automobile insurance policies to provide $10,000 in coverage to pay for medical bills in case a person is injured regardless of fault. However, it does not mean that fault is not assigned in case of an automobile collision. Fault IS ALWAYS an issue. And holding at-fault drivers accountable is necessary to getting damages paid. Unfortunately, the only way to get insurance carriers to pay for damages when their insured driver causes damages and injuries to another is to force them. Insurance companies do not pay for damages they are not forced to pay. We force them to pay!
WHAT ARE FLORIDA’S COMPARATIVE FAULT RULES AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Florida uses the pure form of the comparative fault rule in car accident cases. This means that you will only receive the compensation that the jury decides. If the jury decides that you were partially at fault, that percentage will be reduced from the total damage award.
WHAT ARE THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT?
According to the Florida Statutes Title 8, Ch. 95, Sec. 95.11, the statute of limitations for personal injury and property damages cases related to traffic accidents is four years.
So, if your car accident claim qualifies under the state’s severe injuries, you will have a four-year window to file a lawsuit against the person/company liable for your injuries.
