I am a trial attorney who had been practicing law for ten years. Attorneys only hire the best when the things that matter the most in their own lives are threatened with harm. That is why I hired Christopher R. Largey of Largey Law when my family, children, and career were maliciously attacked and deceitfully threatened. Mr. Largey is respected by our judges, other attorneys, and the community at large, and as a result he is routinely hired by lawyers who need to be represented fully. He never backs down, he is never pushed, and he is compassionate. He absolutely understood the gravity of the family dynamic that he had to protect in my case. Whenever a lie was told, he would immediately and aggressively confront it head-on, exposing the same. His skillful use of courtroom practice and his knowledge of the evidence code brought the truth to light. The result was a resounding legal victory that protected my children, as well as the complete vindication of my character and my career. Though Chris is not even a family law lawyer, I knew he was the right attorney for this challenge. He stood there for me, and I will never regret hiring him for as long as I live.
How Does Florida’s No-Fault Law Affect Your Right to Damages After an Accident?
- posted: Oct. 15, 2020
Florida’s no-fault law requires all drivers in the state to purchase a minimum amount of personal injury protection (PIP) as part of their own automobile insurance. PIP insurance is used to cover the injuries of the driver and passengers of the covered vehicle. The minimum amount of PIP insurance coverage required for Florida drivers is $10,000. All Florida drivers must file claims with their own insurance companies regardless of fault after any accident.
Being a no-fault state has its benefits. Florida drivers and passengers who are injured in automobile accidents are able to receive immediate compensation because, unlike injured parties in at-fault states, they do not have to wait for the insurance companies to sort out who is at-fault for the accident before claims are paid. PIP insurance will pay for medical treatment, lost wages, and any expenses incurred because of the accident, such as additional childcare if the driver has become unable to care for his or her children. PIP insurance covers these same expenses for passengers who are injured in the accident.
No-fault laws also have drawbacks for Florida drivers. PIP insurance will not pay for pain and suffering and other types of non-economic damages. These may be recovered in a lawsuit against other drivers at fault, but such a lawsuit cannot be brought unless certain conditions are met. The injuries must be serious enough that they constitute significant permanent loss of a bodily function, permanent injury, permanent scarring or disfigurement or death. It is best to consult with a knowledgeable car accident attorney about the specifics of your case to see if these types of damages are available in your case.
