Florida’s “No-Fault” Auto Accident Law
The no-fault laws in Florida allow each driver in an accident to receive compensation for damages from their own insurance company regardless of who is at fault for the accident. For this reason, each driver must carry the following minimums under Florida Statute §627.736:
- $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP)
- $10,000 property damage liability (PDL)
Other than those two coverages, Florida only requires you carry bodily injury liability unless you have been convicted of driving under the influence, per Florida Statute §324.023. Therefore, if you get into an accident, and someone else is at fault, you may still have to pay out of pocket for your medical bills and other expenses if they exceed your insurance company’s coverage limits.

Recovering Your Damages From the Other Driver
If your insurance company does not cover all your losses, you may have other options for recovering your damages, such as:
Setting Up a Payment Plan
You could possibly sue the other party and set up a payment plan to receive compensation. The at-fault party pays an agreed-upon amount each month until reaching the settlement agreement.
Discovering Assets or Hidden Money
The other party may have assets or hidden money that they can use to compensate you for your damages. As your lawyers, we may be able to retain the assets through a lien or by freezing accounts.
File a Claim Through Your Insurance Company
We can assess the value of your damages, such as your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other financial losses. Our lawyers can calculate the total amount of your losses and submit a claim. Keep in mind that your insurance company offers a maximum payout that may not cover your losses.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in Florida
Florida imposes a statute of limitations for personal injury cases, including car accidents. You have a limited time from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation. If you miss your deadline, you may no longer be eligible to recover your damages.
For this reason, it is important to meet with an Orlando uninsured car accident lawyer to discuss your case and move forward with submitting a claim. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you file your claim and meet all Florida state deadlines and regulations promptly.
