In Florida, there are several laws and regulations related to car accidents and personal injury claims that you should be aware of. Some of the most important include:
The 14-Day Rule: Under Florida law, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of the accident in order to be eligible for personal injury protection (PIP) benefits.
No-Fault Insurance: Florida is a no-fault insurance state, which means that after a car accident, each driver’s insurance company pays for their own medical bills and lost wages, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
Comparative Negligence: Florida follows a comparative negligence system, which means that damages can be apportioned based on the degree of fault of each party involved in an accident.
