Top causes of car accidents

Car accidents are almost always the cause of the negligence of one of the drivers involved. Over the years, we’ve seen car accidents caused by things such as drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, aggressive driving, and failing to follow traffic laws and basic safety common sense. In addition to negligence, car accidents may also be caused by things like road defects and dangerous conditions, signage errors, and vehicle defects.

Liability for a Hudson car accident

When a car accident occurs in Hudson, liability will be based on fault. Before you bring forth a claim against another driver, though, you’ll need to file a claim against your own policy’s personal injury protection coverage. This is because Florida is a no-fault car accident state, which means that regardless of fault, damages will be pursued against one’s own insurance. You can step outside of the no-fault system, however, if you suffer serious injuries. If this is the case, you can bring forth a claim directly against the at-fault driver’s liability insurance coverage.

Damages recoverable in a Hudson car accident claim

Our lawyers want to make sure that you are compensated in full for the damages that you suffer. Damages that are recoverable include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage costs;
  • Lost wages; and
  • Pain and suffering.

Common Questions About Car Accidents in Hudson

  • What if the other driver doesn’t have insurance?
  • Fortunately, because Florida is a no-fault state, your first source of recovery will be your own insurance provider, which means that you should be able to recover compensation even if the other driver doesn’t have coverage. In addition to personal injury protection coverage, you may also carry other coverage types, such as uninsured/underinsured coverage.
  • What happens if I am offered less than I think I deserve or my claim is denied?
  • You do not have to accept a settlement offer and, most of the time, rejecting a first settlement offer is the smart thing to do, as claims are often lowballed. If you are offered less than you think that you deserve, you can negotiate for a larger settlement amount. If your claim is denied, you can appeal the denial–our law firm can help.
  • Can I file a lawsuit?
  • You maintain the right to file a lawsuit after a car accident in Florida if your injuries meet the state’s serious injury threshold. However, while you may have the right to file a lawsuit, doing so is rarely advised unless a settlement cannot be reached. Lawsuits can be expensive and their outcomes unknown.
