Quick answer is that every case is different. One of the more frustrating things is when someone crashes into your car. Not only can you be seriously injured but you can be financially impacted. You are at the hospital and you are waiting to know the diagnosis. You are in pain but not sure if it's soft tissue or whether you have broken bones. You already know that you are likely to miss time at work. Your car is totaled.
Who is going to compensate you for all of this and how much is your car accident worth? The answer is nobody knows at this point because it's too early to determine. Every case is different. The facts are different, not all injuries have been diagnosed, comparative negligence has not been determined, nobody knows the insurance coverages available. Time will determine these factors and will allow your car accident lawyer to arrive at a number and make a demand for settlement.
When you are injured in a car accident, seek medical attention first and then contact the Law Office of Roger P. Foley to discuss your case. Speak directly with attorney Roger P. FoleyFlorida Is a No-Fault State, What Does That Mean?
It simply means that when you are involved in an accident, with another vehicle, and are injured that you start with your insurance provider first regardless of who was at fault. In Florida, you are required to have personal injury protection insurance(PIP). PIP covers the first $10,000 in medical bills and lost wages. After that amount is used up, you may file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the other party/driver.Personal Injury Protection Policy (PIP)
As stated above, all Florida drivers are required to have $10,000 personal injury protection insurance coverage. When you are injured your PIP coverage can be used as follows:
- Maximum of 80 percent of medical bills
- Up to 60 percent of lost wages
- Reimbursement for travel to doctors
- $5,000 in event of death
- Child care if injury prevents you from caring for your children
It is important to note that 10k of Personal Injury Protection does not alway mean 10k in coverage. There are limiting factors:
- PIP only pays $2,500, unless you are determined to have an emergency medical condition
- You must seek medical attention within 14 days of the accident, failure to do so can result in denied benefits
- Does not cover Pain and Suffering
When you are injured, PIP is rarely sufficient to cover medical expenses. Accordingly, it is highly recommended that you acquire bodily injury coverage and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
When you are in an accident you should seek medical attention, call a distinguished car accident lawyer, and then contact your insurance company to let them know you were in an accident.Three Top Considerations to Determine How Much Your Car Accident Case Is Worth?
- Liability - Which party was at fault, who caused the accident
- Amount of Damages - what are the extent of your injuries?
- Is there bodily injury coverage on the other side and does the injured party have uninsured/underinsured insurance coverage in the event that the other driver has insufficient bodily injury coverage?
This is how car crash lawyers determine the value of your case. It has to be the other person's fault or at least a percentage of their fault. If the car wreck was entirely your fault then you do not have a case. Do you have serious injuries? Was your arm, back or neck broken? Do you have scars, lacerations? Do you have any paralysis or a brain injury? It is important to understand that your financial compensation is based on the extent of your injuries. The more serious the injury, the more money you can demand. Lastly, does the at fault driver have bodily injury insurance, if they do then that is great news. If they don’t have bodily injury insurance then do you have uninsured or underinsured coverage? If there is insurance coverage combined with liability and damages then you have a case.
