Off-Road Accidents And Your Legal Options
When it comes to auto accidents, Florida is one of several no-fault insurance states. Unlike traditional tort law where an at-fault party is held liable for damages suffered by an injured party, compensation for injuries in no-fault states does not necessarily depend on determining who was at fault in an accident.
Practically speaking, this means that if you were injured in an auto accident, you can recover damages from your own insurance carrier. In Florida, personal injury protection (PIP) coverage allows injured drivers to seek reimbursement from their own insurer if they’ve been injured in an auto accident. However, not all insurers handle PIP claims in a timely fashion.

'I STILL HAVEN'T BEEN COMPENSATED. WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?'
Insurance companies should compensate you for your losses under the terms of your policy in a timely and professional manner. If an insurer continues to delay payment, doesn’t return your calls or claims that an investigation into your case is ongoing, it may be liable for bad faith insurance practices. Our attorneys can evaluate the circumstances of your case, notify the state’s insurance commissioner and file a lawsuit on your behalf. In most cases, the prospect of litigation and censure on the part of the attorney general’s office is enough to persuade an insurer to fulfill its obligation to a policyholder.
