Vehicle Accident – An Overview
Vehicle accident cases are by far the most common type of personal injury cases in our civil court system today. The law of negligence governs the general scope of auto accident cases except in States like Florida where “No Fault” legislation has passed.
Unlike other states where negligence law is the only remedy available to injured parties to receive medical benefits for their injuries, Florida No Fault (also known as PIP) allows injured parties in certain situations to seek immediate medical attention after an accident without the need of paying large up front out of pocket expenses, health insurance or waiting long periods of time for the negligent party’s insurance carrier to investigate, confirm coverage, accept liability and pay your medical bills or waiting years for your case to wind through the courts to obtain medical treatment for their injuries which is a common problem in negligent only states.
So in Florida, regardless who is at fault in your vehicle accident case, you can rest assured that you can seek immediate medical attention without the worry of long time delays and large medical bills, as long as you qualify. In addition to medical benefits, you may eligible to received just compensation for your pain and suffering.
