Understanding Florida’s Car Accident Laws
Florida has different car accident laws from many of the surrounding states. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, our team knows how to navigate these laws, helping our clients emerge from any situation, no matter how unique or complex, with the best possible outcome.
Here are some things you should know about car accidents in Florida. For more detailed information, and to discuss the specifics of your case with a member of our legal team, call us for a free case evaluation at 1 (800) 747-3733.
Comparative vs. Contributory Negligence
Florida follows a pure comparative fault rule when assigning car accident liability. That means you can recover damages from the other party even if you were partly at fault for the accident. Your damages will simply be reduced by your share of the fault. So, if your damages total $20,000, but you were 25% at fault, you would be eligible to receive $15,000.
An attorney from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine will fight to minimize your liability, thereby maximizing the damages that you are eligible to collect.
Personal Injury Protection
Florida is one of a handful of states that require personal injury protection, or PIP, insurance. With PIP, you must first file a claim with your own insurance company, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
That said, if your injuries exceed your PIP policy limit, we can pursue the other driver and their insurer for your remaining damages. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine are aggressive in dealing with car insurance companies. We make sure our clients get paid what they deserve.
Dealing with the Insurance Company
After a car accident, it can be tempting to take the first offer the insurance company puts in front of you, especially if you are expecting substantial medical bills or a lengthy period away from work. The insurer will often sweeten the pot by telling you they can get a check in the mail right away.
Unfortunately, when you jump at that initial offer, you always end up settling for less than you deserve—often by a substantial margin. Our Deland car accident lawyers will fight to get you paid quickly but will also make sure you do not get saddled with a subpar settlement.

Your Deland car accident settlement or award may include compensation for the following and more:
Current and Future Medical Bills
We pursue the responsible party and their insurer for the medical costs you have already incurred as well as those we expect you to incur in the future.
We help you get paid for the time you have had to miss work recovering from your injuries.
Reduced Earning Capacity
We can also help you collect long-term compensation if your injury prevents you from earning the same income going forward.
Pain and Suffering and Inconvenience
Our attorneys also fight for noneconomic damages like the pain, suffering, and inconvenience you have experienced as a result of your injuries.
The Florida Statute of Limitations on Car Accident Injury Claims
In Florida, you have four years from the date of your injury to take legal action against the responsible party or parties. If we need to, we can file a quick lawsuit to keep your case alive in the event of an impending deadline. For a personalized case review by a member of our team, call us at 1 (800) 747-3733.
