Seeking a Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Settlement
In Florida, if you suffer injuries in a vehicle accident, you can file a claim with your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance provider. Because Florida is a no-fault state, PIP insurance protects you and your covered passengers, regardless of who is at fault for the crash. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), drivers must carry a minimum of $10,000 in PIP.
PIP will pay for 80 percent of your necessary medical care, but you must seek initial treatment within 14 days of your accident, according to Florida Statutes §627.736(a). Our attorneys can help you seek compensation from your PIP provider. We want to help you get the maximum amount of coverage possible for your injuries.
Covered medical expenses include, but are not limited to:
- Medical devices
- Dental services
- Hospital stays
- Transportation by ambulance
- Nursing care
- Surgical procedures

Seeking Additional Awards from a Liable Party
If you have medical costs that exceed your PIP and/or have severe injuries, you may have the right to seek a liability insurance claim against the driver who caused your crash. While PIP pays exclusively for medical treatment, a liability claim may include awards for your lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and your vehicle and personal property damages.
You may also have the right to seek awards for your pain and suffering. These damages compensate victims for mental and physical conditions that diminish their quality of life, such as loss of mobility, anxiety and depression, and chronic pain.
If your loved one died from a car accident injury, Florida Statutes §768.21 allows for the recovery of their medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and lost wages. Surviving family members may be eligible for compensation for their pain and suffering and loss of companionship.
You May Have the Right to Take Legal Action
If we cannot recover your damages through an insurance settlement, we may be able to help you step outside the no-fault system and take legal action. Our attorneys can fight for compensation via a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
Even if you believe your case will not go to trial, you need to be aware of Florida’s statute of limitations. Under Florida Statutes §95.11, you have four years to file a personal injury suit and two years to file a wrongful death action. You may not be able to pursue your case if your time runs out.
Car Accident Liability
You should not have to pay for expenses related to an accident you did not cause. We can help you prove that another party behaved negligently and is accountable for your damages.
In this case of a car accident, the negligent party is most often another driver. Examples of driver negligence include:
- Distracted driving, such as texting, eating, or grooming while behind the wheel
- Driving too fast for the speed limit or road/weather conditions
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Failure to obey traffic signs and stop lights
- Driving aggressively (road rage)
- Driving drowsy or sleeping behind the wheel
- Weaving in and out of lanes of traffic
- Driving while intoxicated
Vehicle and Roadway Problems
Vehicle issues, such as defective brakes or tires, can contribute to crashes. Road conditions, like poor lighting, lack of maintenance, or bad design, also lead to accidents. We can help you pursue awards from a carmaker, vehicle parts manufacturer, or roadway owner. No matter the cause of your accident, we will help you fight for damages from all responsible parties.
