Florida Car Accident Liability Law

In the event of a car accident, Florida follows a “at-fault” rule to determine liability. This means that the driver who caused the accident is responsible paying damages through an insurance carrier. In these cases, where more than one driver is at fault for causing an accident Florida follows a "pure comparative negligence" rule.

This rule states that an injured party can still file a car accident claim, however, the percentage of fault they are found to be responsible for will also be deducted from their overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault for the accident, the total compensation awarded to you will be reduced by 20%. Have questions?

How the Car Accident Insurance Claim Process Works

There's a lot that happens at the scene of an accident. After the initial shock and the check to ensure everyone is ok, or someone calls 911 in the event of an emergency, an investigation will ensue, which is usually conducted by the local sheriff. This is important because they can determine what happened and who is at fault, which will impact your insurance claim. As soon as possible, you'll want to contact your insurance company so that they can begin the claims process on their end. If the other person was at fault, you'll put in a third-party claim against their liability insurance.

If all this sounds complicated, it's best to partner with a top-rated Daytona Beach car accident lawyer. Call The Law Offices of Keith C. Warnock, P.A. to get started today.
