Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Since all Florida drivers must obtain PIP insurance, you can receive compensation after a car accident where you are hit by an uninsured driver. Florida law requires that those who seek compensation with their PIP insurance policies receive medical attention within 14 days of the accident. With the right attorney on your side, you may still be able to receive compensation for the accident. However, it all depends on the circumstances surrounding the collision and how your lawyer handles the case.
If you were in an uninsured car accident and you're not at fault, contact an experienced attorney to see what option is right for you. However, you should consider whether the uninsured driver who caused the accident is solvent enough to pay for the damages. You don't have to accept that an uninsured driver causes an accident that causes you physical harm, expensive medical bills, and the loss of your job. You can also try to get the state to suspend the uninsured driver's license until the negotiated agreement is fully paid.
If your insurance company denies this claim, you'll have to look at other options, such as filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. You don't necessarily have to sue the uninsured driver to get the compensation you deserve after a Florida car accident. If you have unpaid losses and damages caused by an uninsured driver, contact Tragos, Sartes & Tragos to help protect your rights. Once you buy your policy, you must inform the insurance company that you had an uninsured accident.
It's surprisingly common for drivers to fail to buy car insurance because of negligence or because they can't save money for monthly payments. Judges sometimes request that uninsured drivers pay monthly fees to people who are harmed because of an accident they caused. Despite the uninsured driver's reasoning that he didn't comply with the law and didn't get car insurance, you may still have options available to get compensation after an accident. Whatever the reason, if a driver without liability coverage crashes into your car in Florida, it can cause you a lot of headaches, especially since Florida is a “no-fault” state where the options to request payment from the other driver are limited, except in certain extreme cases.
However, if one of the parties involved can show that the other party is more at fault, you can file a claim to have the at-fault party's insurance provider pay for the damages suffered. There are many reasons for this, such as the other driver being from another state, not being able to afford basic insurance, or not buying insurance because he doesn't see the point.
