Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to settle my personal injury case?
The time it takes can vary greatly depending on many variables. Once the attorney puts together a case after looking at all the medical bills and determines any future bills and losses, then a demand can be made. Many times, this can’t be done until the victim reaches some level of recovery so the costs of the injury can be determined. It’s possible the case can settle soon after a demand is made, if not then it will go to trial which will slow the process down.
What is the Statute of Limitations in Florida for Accident Claims?
Generally, the statute of limitations in Florida for a personal injury case is 4 years from the date of the negligence or accident which caused the injury. This means that your lawsuit against the person or business must be filed in the correct court within 4 years of the accident, or else your case may be forever barred. This is a difficult area of the law, so please consult with an accident attorney regarding the specific facts of your case.
Why do we have to use my insurance company if I did nothing wrong to cause this accident?
This is because Florida is a “no fault” insurance state. According to Florida law, even when you are in a car accident that someone else caused, you are required by law to submit your own medical expenses to your own automobile insurance company under your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. The individual who caused the accident and their insurance company is responsible for paying your medical bills. They are responsible for any lost wages that exceed your PIP policy. And they are responsible for pain and suffering if you have sustained a permanent injury.
