the most frequently asked questions about being involved in a Florida car accident
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM IN AN MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT?
If you or a loved one is injured in a vehicle accident:
- Call 911 even if your accident seems minor
- Seek medical attention for any injured drivers or passengers
- Unless necessary, do not move the vehicles until the police arrive
- Write down the names, addresses and phone numbers of all parties involved, including any witnesses
- Make sure you write down the names and badge numbers of any police officers that are investigating the accident
- Photograph the vehicles and any injuries sustained by you or your passengers
- Do not admit fault
- Immediately notify your own insurance company of the car accident
- Call Overchuck Law Firm 24/7 at 407-900-2344.
Do not discuss the accident with anyone except the police or your own insurance agent or representative; you are not required to give a statement to anyone but the police and your insurance company. Contact your personal injury attorney immediately. This is important for protecting your rights to accident damage compensation. Damages can include the obvious medical expenses, but also can include property damage, pain and suffering, loss of income, therapy fees, special equipment costs and a raft of future expenses. Future expense calculations may need to be figured up by an expert witness, who is provided by your personal injury lawyer. Future damages include loss of potential income, loss of companionship and guidance, loss of future inheritance and future medical/dental bills.
WHAT IS NO FAULT (PIP) INSURANCE?
Many people have heard the term “no fault insurance” but are unclear about what it means. When a driver has been in an accident, no-fault auto insurance allows the driver to collect from his or her insurance company…no matter who was at fault.
Part of the confusion occurs because the term “no-fault “is sometimes used about any auto insurance system where each driver’s own insurance company pays for certain losses, regardless of fault. The term “no-fault” actually applies only to states where insurance companies pay “first-party” benefits and there are restrictions on the right to sue.
You should also know that if you have a no-fault insurance policy, it is probably called a personal injury protection (PIP) package. PIP insurance pays for the medical expenses of the insured driver and the passengers who were injured in an auto accident. PIP insurance typically covers things like medical bills, wage loss and funeral expenses, but not pain and suffering or vehicle damage. This varies by state and particular insurance policy. The PIP packages have limits on what they will pay.
How you handle the situation after a motor vehicle accident can make a significant difference in your monetary recovery. Dealing with auto insurance companies can be especially complicated. Since the no-fault and fault insurance systems vary widely by state. Speaking with an attorney from Overchuck Law Firm can clear up the confusion that these various systems can cause. Contact Overchuck Law Firm for a confidential and realistic assessment of your case.
THE PERSON WHO HIT ME HAS NO INSURANCE. WHAT CAN I DO?
In Florida, insurance companies offer what is call uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage provides protection for personal injuries that are caused by the negligence of a person with insufficient insurance to cover the costs. In order to be protected by this type of insurance, you have to carry it on your own policy. In the very small number of situations where a negligent driver is uninsured, your uninsured/underinsured motorist policy holder will be liable for the damages you incur. These claims often operate in exactly the same way as a normal personal injury case, with the difference being that you are recovering from your own insurance carrier. It is very important to remember in these situations that the representatives from your own insurance carrier are not out for your best interests. Just like every insurance adjuster, they will be looking to minimize the insurance company’s loss. Contacting our experienced personal injury attorneys to represent you in these situations is the best way to ensure that you are protected.
What types of things can I get reimbursed for after a car accident?
In addition to medical bills, lost wages, and damage to your vehicle, you may get reimbursed for:
- emotional distress
- pain and suffering
- loss of enjoyment (if you can no longer enjoy or participate in activities, hobbies, sports, etc.)
- loss of property in your vehicle or on your person at the time of the accident
How much will I have to pay a lawyer for help after an accident?
At Overchuck Law Firm, we represent all of our clients on a contingency fee. That means we don’t get paid unless you win. The consultation is absolutely free, and after you hire us there are no out-of-pocket expenses.
Why contact an experienced Orlando auto accident law firm?
Work with your Florida auto accident attorney from the beginning for vehicle accidents.
Florida law only requires vehicle owners to provide minimum insurance of $10,000 to $20,000. Even in the most minor of accidents this can be very inadequate.
Our auto accident attorneys will work to obtain a fair and reasonable amount to settle your damage claims.
