Side Impact Collisions Result in Injuries
Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports that in 2018, over 15,000 people suffered incapacitating injuries as a result of being in automotive collisions. Right now, you could be suffering from ailments that prevent you from returning to your job or partaking in activities you once enjoyed.
Some of the injuries you may have sustained in the crash include:
- Broken and fractured bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord trauma
Your Jacksonville side impact collisions lawyer will factor in the cost of your medical bills into the value of your claim. Additionally, they can consult with a third-party medical professional to gain further insight into how your injuries have affected your life.
Florida is a “No-Fault” State
Under Florida Statute §627.7407, Florida is a no-fault insurance state. This means that in the event of an accident, you would file your claim with your own insurance company rather than with the negligent driver’s insurer. All Florida motorists must carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, as mandated under Florida Statute §627.736. This means that all drivers must carry at least $10,000 in PIP coverage, which reimburses 80% of your medical bills and 60% of your lost wages. However, you must receive medical treatment for your injuries within 14 days of the accident to get these benefits.
If the cost of your damages exceeds your PIP coverage, you may be able to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Yet, this is only an option in certain situations. Your Jacksonville side impact collisions lawyer can review the details of your case to determine what course of legal action best suits your interests.
