Frequently Asked Questions
A representative from your insurance company will contact you for detailed information regarding the auto accident you were involved in and will ask you for a written or recorded statement. During their investigation, other drivers and witnesses involved could be contacted. If you paid for medical expenses as a result of your accident or filed an uninsured motorist claim, you must provide documentation of your injuries, medical expenses, any lost wages, and any other monetary losses you’ve experienced.
In some cases it could take up to 15 days for a claim representative to contact you after you report the loss and/or damage. If you don’t hear from your claim representative, call your agent or insurance company. If they are not responsive, or you believe there is an unreasonable delay in settling your claim, contact the Florida Department of Insurance.
Your insurance company will send an insurance adjuster or appraiser to inspect the damaged vehicle(s). The adjuster or appraiser then writes an estimate based on the initial inspection. If further damage is found during the repair process, the repair shop will contact the insurance company to get approval for the additional cost of repairs they are recommending. The insurance company may choose to send out an adjuster to re-inspect the additional damages. If there is only minor damage your insurance company may ask you to obtain competitive estimates of the recommended repair work. It is your responsibility to sign and authorize the shop to repair your vehicle once you are satisfied with the final estimate and repair facility.
Generally, insurance companies will pay the lesser of the following:
- The amount necessary to repair the vehicle or
- The actual cash value (ACV) of the vehicle.
Read your policy to determine what exactly is covered. Be mindful of any exclusions and limitations to your policy. For example, there is usually no or limited coverage for enhanced aftermarket stereo equipment, telephones, or tires and wheels unless it is original equipment installed by the automobile manufacturer (OEM). Additional coverage is usually available for such installed equipment at an additional charge.
Actual Cash Value – Unless otherwise defined in the policy, Actual Cash Value (“ACV”) represents the actual dollar value of the damaged item in its depreciated, but not damaged, condition.
Most standard auto insurance policies contain an appraisal provision. These provisions may be helpful in the event there is a dispute regarding the amount being offered by your insurance company on a total loss settlement of your vehicle. Read your policy to see if your policy contains an appraisal provision. When you and your insurance company cannot agree on the amount of damage, either party may invoke the appraisal clause found in most insurance policies.
Section 627.7401, Florida Statutes, states your insurance company must provide you with a notice of your rights when you file a Personal Injury Protection (PIP) claim. This notice will include items such as a list of your PIP benefits, exclusions, limitations, and payment timeline requirements. Your insurance company must pay you or the service provider within 30 days upon receipt of proper written notification of the PIP loss amount. If not, you or your provider should be entitled to interest on the amount of the claim until you receive payment.
Florida’s no-fault insurance system can be difficult to navigate, and there could be a lot of money at stake if the accident caused serious bodily injury or property damage. Having an experienced car accident attorney argue on your behalf can be the difference between fair, just compensation, or a complete loss.
You should check with your claim representative agent or insurance company prior to renting a vehicle to determine if your auto coverage will extend to the rental vehicle. The kind of vehicle you rent, how it will be used, where it will be driven and the limits of your own coverage are all factors that determine if coverage will extend from your personal auto policy to the rental vehicle.
Personal injury law includes as many different types of practice areas as there are types of accidents and injuries. Following are some of the main categories:
Car Accidents: Unfortunately, Florida’s roads kill more people than any other state outside of Texas and California, with many times as many people seriously injured. More than a quarter of these deaths can be attributed to DUI. When an accident happens, with or without a DUI, we can help you seek the compensation you deserve.
Truck Accidents: The same accident that would qualify as a fender-bender with a compact car can result in serious injury or death when the other vehicle is an 18-wheeler truck. Truck accidents are often the result of a violation by the driver of one of the many regulations that govern the trucking industry.
Motorcycle Accidents: Only pedestrians and bicyclists are more vulnerable on the road than motorcyclists – in fact, motorcyclists are arguably more vulnerable than bicyclists because of the higher speeds at which motorcycles travel. A very high percentage of these accidents are the result of a failure by an automobile driver to even notice motorcyclists.
