Personal injuries sustained in automobile accidents can have life-altering effects. Because of the negligence of a careless, speeding and/or inattentive driver, injuries from a vehicle accident can cause devastating financial, physical and emotional damage to an entire family.
For the person who is not at fault, Florida law limits the amount his or her insurance company is required to pay toward medical bills. Depending upon the severity of your injuries, the remaining medical bills can be paid by ‘at fault’ driver’s insurance company.
However, in the state of Florida, many uninsured and under-insured drivers make it difficult for responsible motorists to go about their daily lives after an auto accident. Therefore we recommend that you purchase uninsured motorist coverage as part of your automobile insurance policy.
Insurance companies can be difficult due to a great deal of paperwork and intrusive medical examinations. So, it is important for you to know your rights and to work with a personal injury attorney experienced with auto accident cases. Should an insurance company refuse to provide a fair and full settlement agreement, your attorney should be prepared to go to trial on your behalf.
