Florida operates under a “no fault” system in regard to auto insurance claims, which means accident victims typically turn to their own providers for compensation following a collision; however, if they sustain injuries that are considered serious enough, they may seek damages from the liable party. Before you can recover compensation in a third-party claim, though, you must prove fault.
The following are examples of evidence that may contribute to the strength of your claim:
- Photographs of the wreckage;
- The official police report;
- Eyewitness testimony;
- The location and extent of any property damage;
- The results of any chemical tests;
- Dash cam recordings;
- Surveillance footage;
- Statements from accident reconstruction experts; and
- Cell phone records.
Even with adequate evidence of liability, you must prove you incurred damages as a direct result of the incident before you can secure a settlement. Proof of damages might include:
- Hospital bills;
- Pharmacy receipts;
- Medical records;
- Statements from medical experts;
- Time-off requests for work;
- Income statements;
- Photographs of any visible wounds;
- Journal entrees detailing the recovery process; and
- Statements from loved ones regarding the ways in which the injuries have affected their lives.
