Florida Car Insurance And Law
Injured drivers have 14 days from the date of accident to seek medical care. Please know, that if you are not the at-fault party, your insurance rates will not rise for filing a claim.
In the state of Florida drivers are required to carry PIP coverage. Personal Injury Protection is normally 80/20. This means 80% of medical expenses will be covered by the car insurance company and 20% will be the drivers responsibility. There are policy add-ons such as MedPay that will lessen the driver responsibility. If the involved party seeking medical care was a passenger at the time of the collision, he/she may utilize benefits under their own car insurance policy. During this stressful time, it is common for lawyers to get involved due to the severity of the situation. Dr. Randal Butch and his staff are here to help!
