There are three types of insurance you can buy in the State of Florida that will cover you for your injuries. The first is Personal Injury Protection or "No-Fault" insurance that is mandated by the state of Florida. Personal Injury Protection insurance pays for medical bills or lost wages due to injuries you sustain in an accident in spite of who was at-fault in the accident. It will pay up to eighty percent of your medical bills and/or lost wages and cover you for up to $10,000 of your lost wages or medical expenses. You automatically have Personal Injury Protection coverage if you have automobile insurance In the State of Florida.
Bodily Injury (BI) coverage is the second type of insurance that will cover you for your injuries. The BI insurance of another vehicle driver will cover you for your injuries sustained as a result of the negligence of the other driver.
The third type of insurance is uninsured or underinsured motorist (UM) coverage that provides insurance coverage to the policyholder for damages caused by the carelessness of a driver of another vehicle that does not carry insurance coverage or does not carry enough insurance coverage. UIM coverage also provides insurance coverage should the neglectful driver’s insurance coverage be inadequate to pay for all of the harm her or she causes.
Uninsured Motorist coverage is not obligatory. That is, you don’t have to purchase it when purchasing auto insurance. Also, you have the choice to buy “stacked” UM coverage. Stacked coverage means that your policy limits are multiplied by the number of vehicles in your home. For instance, if you buy a stacked UM policy with $100,000 policy limits and you have two vehicles in your house, you will be able to receive up to $200,000 in compensation for your injuries should you be involved in an accident.This South Florida Hit-and-Run Crash/Wreck Lawyer Pursues Justice on Behalf of Clients
If you are injured in a hit and run accident, you should try to get the license plate number of the other driver if you can do so safely. It is helpful even if you can only determine a couple of digits on the license plate. Nowadays, police can oftentimes locate an owner/driver of a vehicle even using only a few digits from a license plate.
Also, it is important to attempt to get surveillance videotape from close-by intersections if you’ve been the victim of a hit and run accident. In Florida, many intersections use red-light cameras. The identity of the vehicle involved in your accident might be recorded on these cameras.
Once the police have located the criminal, they can often verify that the offender’s vehicle was in fact involved in the accident by matching the paint on the vehicle to your vehicle, etc. (i.e., some of the paint from your vehicle may have “rubbed off” on the other vehicle when the wreck occurred). You might be able to recover compensation for your injuries if the offender had a BI coverage insurance policy.Get compensated for your Injuries with the help of a Miami-Dade County Hit-and-Run Accident Law Firm
