Getting involved in an accident is hard enough as it is. Sadly, injuries are not the only thing to worry about in the event of an accident. Not only can you lose your property in an accident, but you can also lose your source of revenue. In light of the fact that you might not be able to work for some time. Notwithstanding, there is still a silver lining in this case. While you might not be able to get the time you have lost back, you can be compensated for your loss. This goes without saying that, your injury must be consequential of someone else’s negligence.
Evidently, there is a No-fault insurance policy in Florida. As a result, any compensation you hope to receive for your injuries will most likely revolve around the No-fault insurance policy. So what is the No-fault insurance policy all about, and what kind of coverage can you get from it.
Florida No-fault insurance
The state of Florida demands that every Florida-based motorist registers a car within the state must carry insurance of at least $10,000 worth. This insurance coverage is known as the No-fault insurance coverage and it entails PIP and PDL (personal injury protection and property damage liability respectively) coverage. With this coverage, you’ll be able to access funds in the event that you get injured in an accident.
Nevertheless, if the loss you incur due to the other driver’s negligence exceeds your PIP coverage. you can sue the driver and demand for your compensation for the loses you incurred.
You can sue for either economic or non-economic loss. In some cases, you can sue for both.
Economic loses includes, lost wages, medical expenses and other tangible costs. While Non-economic expenses include scarring, suffering and other sentimental loses.
Bottom line is that you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and loses and with a competent lawyer backing you in court.
