Road and traffic accidents comprise the most common types of personal injury cases in Tampa Bay. The challenge with these cases, like most personal injury cases, is to find the liable or negligent party. Because Florida is a no-fault insurance state, your damages will be recovered regardless of cause. However, if there was a liable party, you can bring a claim.
No-Fault Insurance | Personal Injury Protection
It is actually quite relieving to live in a No-Fault state. You are protected by Personal Injury Protection or PIP coverage no matter what happened to cause the accident. This will be a benefit you seek from your very own insurance. The downside of this is that PIP only covers 80% of your medical bills and you can only get 60% of lost wages. You will need to discuss your options with your attorney because you may bring a claim against the liable party under certain conditions.
Under PIP, you will forfeit your benefits if you do not receive medical attention within 2 weeks of your accident. Your PIP benefits will be reduced if you do not have significant injuries.
