Making Sense of Florida’s No-Fault Policy
When it comes to accidents, Florida is considered a No Fault state. Under this policy a person’s own auto insurance is supposed to take care of the cost of injuries to themselves and their vehicle. However, exceptions do exist when injuries are permanent or cause scarring or disfigurement.At times it may be obvious that there will be long standing troubles after an accident, and other times the answer to those questions can take more time to figure out.
If an accident is severe enough, and is mostly the other driver’s fault, you may be able to gain compensation from that person or their insurance company. But even if injuries are temporary, attorneys Denoncourt & Warenyk, P.A. are ready to investigate what happened at the scene of the accident, and can help make sure your own insurance company is offering the settlement amount you need.
