What You Need to Know About Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can cause significant damage to your vehicle, which can make you more susceptible to sustaining injuries. A rollover crash can expose your vehicle to oncoming traffic, which can lead to devastating collisions. Since rollover accidents may result in auto insurance companies declaring the vehicle a total loss, the expenses related to your accident can exceed your coverage.
How Your Insurance Comes Into Play
You must carry at least $10,000 in Property Damage Liability, meaning that if your vehicle is a total loss, you may have difficulty replacing your car. When the cost to repair or replace your vehicle exceeds your PDL coverage, you can pursue damages against the other driver.
§ 627.7407 of the Florida Statutes mandates that all drivers carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. These benefits reimburse 80% of your medical costs and 60% of your lost wages. You must receive medical care for your injuries within 14 days to receive PIP benefits.
File a Personal Injury Claim With Our Help
A lawyer can help you pursue economic and non-economic damages against the other driver. Florida does not cap the damages you can receive for injuries sustained in a car accident. Economic losses are actual expenses you paid because of your accident. Non-economic damages consider how your injuries impact your long-term health, happiness, and quality of life. If injuries prevent you from returning to work, a Jacksonville rollover accident lawyer can help you pursue damages for future lost earnings and a diminished earning capacity.
§ 768.81 of the Florida Statutes imposes a comparative negligence rule, which reduces your damages by the percentage you are responsible for the accident. A lawyer can collect evidence to demonstrate the other driver was at fault for the collision.
