How Car Accidents Work In West Palm Beach, FL
Florida is one of the few states in the U.S. that is a no-fault car insurance state. That means that your car insurance’s personal injury protection (PIP) often covers your medical expenses and other financial damages from the car accident. After a car accident occurs, this is the first route you will go to recover damages.
In cases when the other driver is fully at fault for your accident, their insurance provider will be fully responsible for paying for your injury-related expenses, which may be done outside of court or through a lawsuit. If you pursue legal action and you are partially at fault for the accident, your total compensation will be reduced by the percentage that you are found at fault.
Unlike other states, you do not have to be less than 50% responsible for the accident to recover compensation through legal action. If you are not sure if you need to file a legal claim, contact a top West Palm Beach car accident lawyer at Lytal, Reiter, Smith, lvey & Fronrath today.
