Osborne & Francis provides comprehensive representation for victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents and injuries
An estimated 250,000 vehicle crashes occur each year in Florida. Car accidents happen every day and the most common causes include:
• Reckless or careless driving
• Road rage
• Distracted and negligent driving such as driving while texting, talking on the phone, talking to other passengers and putting on makeup
• Drunk driving
• Failing to follow posted warning signs
Car accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists often cause significant injuries and even death. Regardless of the activity that precipitated the accident, the at-fault driver is liable for both the personal injuries and property damage caused by the car crash. Lawyers from Osborne & Francis can help you take proactive steps to support your case. First, you should always report car accidents to law enforcement and make sure that you receive a formal report. Seeking assistance from a reputable and experienced auto accident attorney once you have the report will place you in a better position to receive maximum compensation for accident damages. Negotiating personally with the other driver or insurance company is never a good idea.
What type of insurance coverage are Florida drivers required to carry?
All drivers are required to have full liability insurance coverage at all times under the Florida Financial Responsibility Law. This is designed to minimize the financial catastrophe that can follow an auto accident. In Florida, coverage must include minimum limits of:
• $10,000 bodily injury per person
• $20,000 bodily injury per crash
• $10,000 property damage per crash
• $10,000 personal injury protection per person per crash
In addition to the required liability insurance minimums, you may also be able to recover damages covering lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering under the laws that govern car accidents in Florida. Attorneys with Osborne & Francis have significant experience working with insurance companies and developing strategies to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries and financial losses.
