There are many reasons why car accidents occur. Here are some of the most common reasons:
- Drowsy driving
- Impaired driving/drunk driving
- Reckless or careless driving/speeding/texting while driving
- Weather conditions
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Failure to yield right of way
- Night time driving
- Unsafe lane changes/not using a turn signal
Despite recent efforts to replace Personal Injury Protection (PIP) in the state of Florida, we remain one of ten states requiring drivers (car owners) to carry a minimum $10,000 in “no-fault” car insurance – PIP. If you’re injured in an accident, no matter who was at fault, this coverage will pay for a loss of income, medical bills, and funeral-related costs.
But PIP may not be enough to cover all of your accident-related expenses. Depending on the severity of your accident, you could be hospitalized or need specific medical care (short-term or long-term), prescription drugs, vehicles repairs, and money for other miscellaneous accident-related expenses. We can help you pursue a personal injury lawsuit.
