Car accidents are hard enough without the added complications of insurance negotiations. You’re injured, perhaps you’re missing work during your recovery, and you’re not sure who to pursue for the cost of your medical treatment and repairs. Our attorneys can assess your options for recovery and pursue the appropriate insurer for the compensation you deserve.
GED Lawyers has been helping injured people in Florida and Massachusetts to recover the cost of medical treatment, unearned wages, and pain and suffering compensation since 1995. You’ve got a lot on your plate after an accident. We’d like to take on the burden of the legal process, so you can focus on your recovery.
Our Attorneys Will Negotiate with the Appropriate Insurer for What You Deserve
Insurance laws in Florida can be complicated to navigate. For the most part, injured car accident victims will seek coverage for their medical expenses through their Personal Injury Protection (PIP). This required protection will only cover up to $10,000 in medically necessary treatment and up to 60 percent of your lost wages.
However, if you’re seriously injured–the policy maximum may not be enough. Not to mention, your pain and suffering aren’t recoverable through a PIP claim.
If PIP is insufficient, your next option for compensation will depend on who is at fault for your collision.
Uber Auto Accident Insurance
Drivers, passengers, and injured third parties can all receive insurance benefits from Uber in the event of an accident. There are certain conditions under Uber’s insurance policy however:
- If the driver was waiting for a ride request, injured third parties and Uber drivers may receive up to $50,000 bodily injury per person for up to $100,000 per accident. Uber also covers up to $25,000 in property damage.
- If the driver was picking up or transporting passengers, injured parties and drivers may receive up to $1,000,000 in liability coverage and comprehensive collision coverage up to the value of the vehicle (in some circumstances).
Uber will also cover drivers and passengers injured by an uninsured or underinsured at-fault party, or in the case of a hit-and-run.
Third-Party Insurance Coverage
In some cases, your attorneys may be forced to pursue additional compensation from the at-fault party’s personal insurance coverage. Generally, for medical expenses exceeding the PIP limits, your injuries must have been serious enough to surpass the tort threshold.
Your attorneys can discuss whether your injuries meet the criteria to file a third-party lawsuit. Regardless of whose insurance is responsible for the collision, our team can help you recover what you deserve.
Compensable Damages for Seriously Injured Auto Accident Victims
Depending on the insurance, we may be able to help you recover damages in addition to your medical expenses and property damage. Here are some of the potential losses we can demand through a lawsuit:
- The full extent of your lost wages
- Medical expenses exceeding your PIP insurance
- Physical pain
- The inconvenience of immobility and loss of independence
- Emotional anguish and mental distress
- Personal and relational suffering
Whatever you’ve lost because of the accident, you have a right to recover. If you are eligible to pursue the at-fault party, we will do our best to fight for what you deserve from their insurance.
