Can I control whether my car is repaired or replaced following a Florida car accident?

After a car accident in the state of Florida typically victims have very little control over whether or not they can choose to repair their car or have it replaced. Basically, what Florida's done is they've set up a minimum-maximum amount of damage that can be caused to the vehicle to determine whether or not it's a total loss. That percentage is actually 80%, so if you take the total value of the car and the amount of cost that it would take to repair it exceeds 80% then by law that vehicle will automatically be a total loss and it will not be repaired.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
