Motor vehicle accidents are all too common due to distracted drivers and unpredictable weather. Unfortunately, Florida’s regulations make it complicated when filing an auto accident insurance claim for severe injury or death. That is why it is imperative to find an experienced auto accident lawyer to ensure that victims receive the compensation they deserve.
Complicating matters further is the $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance that all Florida drivers are required to carry. This insurance covers up to 80% of the driver’s injuries and only 60% of their lost wages due to an accident. In many cases this coverage isn’t enough to address the medical bills, property damage and lost wages an accident victim must face.
Insurance companies will also try to minimize the injuries sustained by the victim to avoid paying out the claim. The negligent party or their insurance company will try to categorize the victim’s injuries as temporary instead of permanent, which reduces the defendant’s financial burden. A savvy attorney knows how to collect data, organize evidence and get proper medical diagnosis to fight for the claimant’s rights.
