Car Accident FAQs

Our Plantation Car Accident Attorney Answers Common Questions

Florida follows a no-fault insurance system that limits the ability to bring lawsuits. Here are answers to common questions about how the system works and when claims for liability can be made. For specific answers to questions about your unique case, contact our Plantation car accident attorney Carlos M. Amor directly.

What is Florida’s no-fault insurance system?

In the no-fault system, your own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance pays for your medical expenses and other economic losses. Pain and suffering and other nonmonetary losses are not covered under no-fault insurance. The only way to get compensation for noneconomic losses is through a lawsuit or liability claim against the driver of the other vehicle or other party that may have been involved in causing the accident. But in order to make a claim against the other driver, your injuries must be considered serious under the law.

What are considered serious injuries for suing outside of the no-fault system?

You may be able to sue outside of the no-fault insurance system if you suffered injuries that resulted in the following as described in Florida Statute 627.737(2):

  • Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function
  • Significant and permanent scarring and disfigurement
  • Permanent injury other than scarring or disfigurement.

The law also allows wrongful death lawsuits if someone is killed due to the negligence of another in a car accident.

What types of injuries are common in car accidents?

Types of injuries that are common in car accidents include whiplash, neck and back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, concussions, bruising and other soft tissue damage, internal bleeding, organ damage, and broken bones. Traumatic brain injuries, neck and back injuries, organ damage and other severe injuries can be significant and permanent, requiring ongoing and expensive medical care and having life-changing physical and emotional impacts.

How long do I have to file a car accident lawsuit?

As described in the Florida Statute of Limitations, you have four years to file a car accident lawsuit in the state following an injury accident. If you are considering bringing a wrongful death lawsuit, you have only two years to file. If you do not file within these time periods, you may lose your right to sue. However, because every case has its own intricacies, you should always speak to an attorney if you believe you are at or near the deadline. There are exceptions in some situations.

What to Do Following an Injury Car Accident

Learn the Steps to Take in a Crash

Under Florida law, if you’re a driver in a car accident that results in injuries, death or significant vehicle damage, you must notify police. Even if injuries appear to be minor, getting law enforcement and other emergency responders to the scene will help ensure the well-being of everyone involved in the accident. If you are not taken by ambulance to the hospital, be sure to see a doctor as soon as possible. You may have serious injuries that are not immediately apparent. And having a doctor’s evaluation and guidance will be to your benefit should you file a legal claim.

Other steps to take after an accident include the following:

  • Exchange insurance, driver’s license and contact information with the other driver.
  • If there were eyewitnesses to the accident, get statements or contact information.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and vehicles involved, and make notes about how you believe the accident happened and what the weather and road conditions were at the time.
  • Do not admit fault, even if you believe you caused the accident or shared fault. Let accident investigators determine what happened.
  • Notify your insurance company.

Finally, contact a car accident attorney who can help you by negotiating with insurers and possibly filing a lawsuit on your behalf, depending upon your situation.
