Car Accident Laws in Boca Raton, FL

When it comes to car accidents, Boca Raton follows the no-fault car insurance laws. This means that you’ll first recover damages through your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage on your car insurance policy when you have any fault in the accident. The minimum PIP that is required in the state of Florida will help you cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial damages.

If you’re in a situation where your PIP doesn’t fully cover your losses and the other driver is fully at-fault, the other driver’s insurance coverage will pay for all of your injury-related expenses. You may try to pursue reimbursement for your damages outside of court, but legal action may be required to get all of the compensation you deserve. Oftentimes, insurance providers offer less-than-ideal settlement amounts, but you do not have to accept them.

You can bring a legal claim to the local court even if you are partially at fault for the accident. However, any compensation you receive from the lawsuit will be reduced by the percentage of fault you carry.

Injury Accidents

When an injury occurs in a car accident and settlements outside of court are not enough, a victim can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. A victim may experience a life-changing, long-term medical condition, and their quality of life may be greatly affected.

In a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident, you may claim a wide range of injury-related damages, such as:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Lost wages and future wages
  • Noneconomic damages, such as mental anguish or pain and suffering

According to Florida’s statute of limitations, all personal injury claims need to be brought to the local court within four years from the date of the accident in order to receive compensation through the lawsuit.

Personal Property Claims

When a vehicle is totaled and costs aren’t fully covered by insurance outside of court, a personal property claim is necessary. Personal property claims are filed to recover the cost of all expenses related to the vehicle damage, including a full replacement of the vehicle. These claims can also cover damage to personal possessions.

Personal property claims have a four-year time limit according to the statute of limitations, which begins on the date of the accident.

Catastrophic Accidents

In the most severe car accidents, death occurs. When a loved one has died in a Boca Raton car accident, family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party. In a wrongful death lawsuit, you will calculate the full value of the deceased person’s life, plus any related damages.

Wrongful death claims need to be brought forth within two years of the family member’s death to collect compensation.
