If you’re in a car accident anywhere, you need to take key steps to ensure safety, to follow the local laws correctly and to best begin an insurance claim.
In Florida, there are specific laws you’ll need to address.
Florida is a “no-fault” state. The “no fault” law is an agreement between the insurance companies and the Florida Legislature.
This law provides that insurance companies are required to provide a certain level of coverage for their insured if they are involved in an automobile accident, regardless of fault.
In exchange, a victim of an auto-accident can only bring a claim against an at-fault party if they have sustained a permanent injury.
If you’re in a Florida car accident, follow these steps to improve your outcome.
