Florida Laws on Bicycle Accidents
Florida has what it calls no-fault insurance laws (also commonly referred to as personal injury protection). This means all parties involved in a crash are to use their own auto insurance policy as a first line of defense when seeking to cover costs associated with the accident. Even if you are not responsible for the accident, Florida laws still require you to recover whatever compensation is available to you through your car insurance provider before going after the driver who hit you.
However, you may have significant difficulty in getting your insurance company to provide you with the compensation you need to cover your damages and losses. Our legal team can also help you with your insurance claim and make sure your insurance provider treats you fairly. Contact our team today for help.
