Though a car accident may be over in a split second, it can have lifelong consequences for victims.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Auto Accident Compensation

Florida's auto accident insurance system is based on no-fault accident protection. This means that drivers are required to purchase a minimum amount of personal injury protection (PIP) that will cover damages to the insured (up to policy limits) in the event of an auto accident, regardless of who was at fault. In exchange for this guaranteed accident compensation, Florida drivers surrender their right to sue for all but the most severe injuries suffered in a car accident.

Types of Compensation Available to Car Accident Victims

When injuries sustained in an auto accident caused by another party's negligence lead to permanent impairment or wrongful death, victims and their families may pursue compensation for losses resulting from the accident.

Economic Damages

Economic damages can be awarded to cover those losses with a calculable value such as:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of future wages and earning potential
  • Loss of value of real property
  • Costs related to repairs
  • Replacement value of lost personal property

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages compensate for intangible harms, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Anguish
  • Loss of quality and enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
