What does it mean when people say Florida is a “no-fault” state?
What that means is, regardless of who was at fault for the accident, your first step is to contact your own car insurance company to request compensation for property damages and personal injury. However, there are certain cases where people injured in a car accident may step outside the no-fault system and have the other person liable for your injuries.
What are Florida’s comparative fault rules and what does that mean?
Florida uses the pure form of the comparative fault rule in car accident cases. This means that you will only receive the compensation that the jury decides. If the jury decides that you were partially at fault, that percentage will be reduced from the total damage award.
What are the statute of limitations after an auto accident?
According to the Florida Statutes Title 8, Ch. 95, Sec. 95.11, the statute of limitations for personal injury and property damages cases related to traffic accidents is four years.
So, if your car accident claim qualifies under the state’s severe injuries, you will have a four-year window to file a lawsuit against the person/company liable for your injuries.
