Pursuing Compensation Through Insurance
In Florida, motorists must have a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, according to Florida Statutes 627.736. PIP pays for 80 percent of your necessary medical treatment, regardless of who or what caused your accident.
If you have severe injuries, $10,000 in medical benefits may only pay for a portion of the care you need to get back on your feet. PIP also does not include other awards to which you may be entitled, such as those for property damages and pain and suffering.
If you meet certain criteria, you may be able to hold the reckless driver who caused your accident liable for your injuries, according to Florida Statutes 6627.737.
Navigating the insurance claims process can be difficult, but a Tampa reckless driving accident lawyer can help you with a claim against the reckless driver who caused your crash.
Damages You Can Seek
With a third-party insurance claim, you can seek damages not covered by your PIP policy. This may include a sum for medical bills that exceed your policy’s coverage. If your injuries are severe, you may require surgeries, hospital stays, physical and/or cognitive rehabilitation, and in-home nursing care. A lawyer can help you fight for fair compensation for your past and future medical treatment.
PIP only pays for a percentage of your lost wages while you recover from your injuries. An attorney can help you seek further compensation for time missed from work. If your injuries leave you unable to work or return to your previous employment, you can seek a settlement for your future lost wages.
An insurance claim allows you to seek the costs associated with repairing or replacing your vehicle, as well as any other personal property damaged during your accident, such as electronics or jewelry.
Finally, a lawyer can help you calculate a sum to compensate you for your physical pain and emotional suffering. You could be eligible for these damages if your accident left you with permanent injuries and disabilities and/or led to depression, anxiety, or mental anguish.

Proving a Reckless Driver Caused Your Crash
Florida Statutes 316.192 states, “Any person who drives any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving.”
Examples of reckless driving include, but are not limited to:

- Following too closely

- Driving while intoxicated
- Erratic lane changes
- Disobeying traffic signs and lights
- Driving aggressively or acting with “road rage”
- Texting and driving
A Tampa reckless driving accident lawyer with our firm will attempt to prove another driver’s dangerous and negligent behavior caused your injuries and other damages. Your lawyer will do this using documentation and evidence, such as:
- Official accident reports
- Photos and/or videos of your crash (if available)
- Medical bills and records
- Vehicle repair bills and records
- Witness statements
- Expert testimony
- The responsible driver’s records regarding reckless driving charges
Deadlines for Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawsuits
An attorney with our firm will make every effort to settle your car accident through an insurance claim. However, this is not always possible, and some cases must go to civil court to achieve a resolution.
If a lawsuit is necessary, you have four years from the time your injuries occurred to file your case, according to the statute of limitations outlined in Florida Statutes 95.11. You have two years from the time of your loved one’s death to file a wrongful death suit.
If you sue on behalf of a deceased loved one, you could recover the costs of their final medical expenses, funeral, and burial. The law allows survivors to seek additional awards for their loss of the deceased’s financial contributions, services, support, and companionship.
