Rental car reimbursement, but only if you purchased collision and comprehensive coverage.
Payment of your medical bills, and any future medical bills.
Medical treatment, whether you have insurance or not. However, in order to make use of your Florida law mandated PIP (i.e. no-fault) coverage which pays your medical bills up to $10,000.00 you must be seen by an M.D. or a D.O. within fourteen days of the date of the crash, or you waive your right to PIP benefits and that waiver is a statutory penalty against you in the event you pursue a lawsuit as the at-fault driver receives an automatic $10,000.00 set-off in the event of compensatory damages awarded to you in a jury trial or in a bench trial (i.e. a case tried to a judge and not to a jury)Florida law also requires all operators of a motor vehicle to carry Property Damage (“PD”) coverage. If you are for example struck in the rear by another driver as you wait at a red light, and your motor vehicle is damaged, then the at-fault driver’s PD coverage will pay for the damage to your vehicle.
However, if the at-fault driver’s insurer denies liability 9i.e. fault), and refuses to pay for the repair to your motor vehicle, then without collision coverage in place, your motor vehicle will not be repaired unless you come out of pocket and pay for the repair or replacement of your motor vehicle damaged in the crash.
Collision coverage covers your vehicle in these situations: (1) your vehicle hits another vehicle; (2) when you in your vehicle hit a stationary object like a tree or a house or a fence; (3) your vehicle is hit by another vehicle; and (4) unintentional flipping, rolling or overturning of your vehicle.
Collision coverage covers your vehicle from accident damages regardless of fault.
Comprehensive coverage covers a variety of situations that collision coverage does not, and what comprehensive covers is: (1) glass damage; (2) vandalism; (3) striking an animal; (4) theft; (5) fire; (6) floodwaters; (7) damage from flying debris like items falling off a vehicle or falling trees and other objects.
Repair or replacement of your vehicle, but only if you purchased collision and comprehensive coverage. Collision coverage provides coverage for damage which occurs to your vehicle in a motor vehicle accident, not the other driver’s vehicle. Collision coverage is typically accompanied by a deductible. Your repair costs are not covered under Property Damage (PD”) coverage which all motorists in Florida are required by law to have.
Recovery of your loss of earnings and any future lost earning capacity.
Reimbursement for your out of pocket expenses incurred.
A car accident injury can be mentally and physically excruciating. The resulting events caused by the accident, can add even more physical and economic hardships to accident victims and the family of an accident victim’s recovery efforts. Insurance companies will try to settle a victim’s car accident injury claim to the insurance companies’ advantage.
If you were not at fault, but rather the victim in a car crash, or you were only partially responsible for a car crash, Jeffrey R. Rollins, P.A can help guide you through the legal process. You should consider hiring an experienced personal injury trial lawyer after a car crash as the insurance company claims process can potentially be unfair. Therefore, to protect and preserve your rights, it is essential that you have proper legal counsel to deal with the legal issues that will arise from a car or motorcycle accident.
Unfamiliarity with personal injury laws can place victims of auto accidents and personal injury at disadvantages and hinder their rights to recover fair, just and reasonable compensation from the at fault party’s insurance company.
