Florida is a "no-fault" state
That doesn't mean fault for the accident doesn't matter - far from it. What it means is that your own insurance is your first source of compensation, and specific criteria need to be met to take legal action against another person who is responsible for your injuries. That's one reason why it's so important to get our firm on your side as soon as possible - understanding your legal options is difficult, and we can help.
In addition to being a no-fault state, Florida also observes the "pure comparative negligence" system. This set of rules works to assign responsibility for the accident to all parties involved in order to divide fault fairly. Moreover, a time limit called the statute of limitations - four years in Florida - is applied to these cases. In order to take legal action and get the compensation you need, you have to get an attorney on your side as soon as possible.
