Insurers Owe You Fair Car Accident Compensation
Florida requires all motorists to possess at least $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. This policy allows you to receive compensation for your losses regardless of fault. However, this amount will not be enough to pay for catastrophic and traumatic injuries since treatments are very expensive and far exceed the minimum.
You might be able to file a claim for additional compensation against the at-fault driver if negligence played a role and you experienced:
Permanent loss of bodily functions
Permanent scarring and disfigurement
Losing the life of a family member
Significant losses of bodily functions
Other definitions of catastrophic injuries
If you or a loved one suffered from any of these outcomes, you might also be eligible for additional compensation, such as pain and suffering damages. Insurers will refuse to pay these awards if they do not think they owe them under the law. However, when they get their investigation wrong, set the record straight with our Sarasota car accident lawyers.
