Who pays for my injuries if I am injured in a Florida car accident?

If you're injured in a Florida automobile accident there could be multiple layers of insurance and therefore multiple sources of payment. The first layer of insurance is the no fault insurance, also known as personal injury protection. That's actually your own insurance and that covers up to $10,000 of your medical treatment or $10,000 of lost wages.

The next place that we look for coverage is the bodily injury coverage or the actual person that caused the accident or the owner of the vehicle that caused the accident. We look at their insurance. That's bodily injury and that's the next layer of coverage.

Finally, we look at UM insurance. There could be multiple sources of UM insurance as well. We look at the host vehicle. If you were driving someone else's vehicle when you were injured we can look at the host vehicle uninsured motorist coverage or we could actually look at your own uninsured motorist coverage. Potentially there could be five or even six sources of insurance and five sources of recovery for your case.

“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, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable”

“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.”
