After being involved in a car accident, it is vital for all involved parties to receive immediate medical attention.
While you may not immediately notice something amiss, you could be experiencing the effects of shock and adrenaline, which numbs the pain. Getting checked out immediately ensures that you are receiving proper treatment for any injuries you may have incurred, and also provides a written record for your car accident lawsuit.
After receiving medical attention, it is important to get the information (name, phone number, email) of anyone who was directly involved in the accident. It may also be beneficial to get the information of any witnesses that may have seen the accident occur.
If you or someone with you has a smartphone, it would be wise to take as many photos as possible to document the situation. Photos of your vehicle, of any other vehicles involved, or anything else pertinent. For example, if you see an open container of alcohol in the other driver’s cupholder, you may want to snap a picture of it.
Florida is a no-fault state. This is specifically referencing insurance coverage; it does not mean that the state won’t recognize in court that one party caused the accident if that is the case.
No-fault states are states where, no matter who causes the accident, your own insurance will cover all of your medical expenses and financial obligations relating to the incident. Your insurance will also cover your children, members of your household, and often passengers (if they don’t have their own insurance).
To bring a case to court outside of the no-fault limitations, your injuries must pass Florida’s severe injury threshold. In Florida, a severe injury is defined as a loss of bodily function, permanent injury, scarring or disfigurement, and death.
It is important to note that the victim can sue the at-fault driver for vehicle damages, unconstrained by Florida’s no-fault law.
