The state of Florida requires every registered owner of a motor vehicle to maintain PIP coverage; personal injury protection. The maximum benefit payable under PIP is $10,000 less your deductible (if any). When an auto accident occurs, this insurance is primarily used to cover your medical expenses for any physical injuries sustained in the accident, no matter who is at fault in the collision. This “no fault” insurance is designed to reduce the number of lawsuits that occur in the state of Florida as a result of motor vehicle collisions.
Unfortunately, PIP coverage is often grossly inadequate, even in cases of moderate injury, never mind cases involving severe personal injuries that can require expensive surgery or other costly medical intervention. In these situations, you always need a personal injury attorney willing to fight for your rights and battle it out in court if necessary. The injury attorneys at HK Legal Group will never accept less for your case and are always prepared to file a lawsuit and litigate your case in the courtroom to get you the justice you deserve. We will help you get your outstanding medical bills paid and collect from the at-fault driver’s insurance company all other compensation you are legally entitled to under Florida law. Other compensation can include future medical expenses, past and future lost wages or income, past and future pain & suffering damages, and even punitive damages in some cases.
We begin by analyzing your claim and each party’s liability in the accident. Florida is what is called a comparative negligence state, where your percentage of liability in the accident will lower your recovery by that percentage. For example, if we determine that you are 25% at fault, your potential recovery will be reduced to 75% of what you may have recovered.
We will then look at the other party’s insurance policies for coverage and well as your own. We will take all of your losses- including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damages (generally in a car crash), future lost earnings, and future medical bills, and determine what a proper settlement should be. This total number is then multiplied by a certain value between 1 and 5 depending on many factors such as how serious the injuries are. This is called the multiplier.
This total amount will be proposed to the opposing insurance company for consideration. The insurance company will likely try to use a lower multiplier to pay out less, and negotiations will ensue.
