Florida is a No-Fault State
Under Florida Statute §627.7407, Florida is considered a “no-fault state.” Many people think that this means that you cannot sue the other driver if you are injured in a collision. This is not true. Instead, what this means is that if you were injured in an accident, you must first file with your own insurance company rather than with the other motorist’s insurer.
How your insurer will handle your case will rest on the type of coverage you have. In some situations, drivers are able to turn to their insurance company and have their expenses covered under their policy. However, if your damages exceed the coverage offered by your insurance company, then you can pursue compensation from the motorcyclist.
Some compensable damages in your case could include:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- The cost of physical therapy and mental health counseling
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
You may be able to pursue the cost of expenses that we have not listed here.
