Law Office of Irwin Ast in Miami Explains Florida Personal Injury Law

People who have been injured in a car or truck accident often don’t understand the Florida laws that apply to motor vehicle personal injuries. The personal injury attorneys at the Law Office of Irwin Ast can help Miami residents comprehend how these laws affect their compensation for their injuries.

(Miami, FL  September 2021) The Law Office of Irwin Ast has handled many different kinds of personal injury cases.  Their expertise with Florida law concerning car and truck injuries allows them to seek the maximum compensation settlements for people who have been injured in an accident caused by a third-party.

An experienced personal injury lawyer in Miami can help Florida residents with the laws concerning who is at fault in an accident as they are quite complicated.  Florida is one of the only few states that have “no-fault” car insurance laws.  

This means that no matter who caused the accident, each driver’s insurance pays their own bills.  Unfortunately, most people only carry the minimum $10,000 policy.  Typically, medical bills can exceed $10,000 very quickly.

What makes this law tricky is the comparative fault part.  In Florida, each driver can be charged with part of the fault.  So, even though an injured person feels like it was totally the other driver’s fault, the accident investigators might find that the injured person was 20% responsible and the other driver was 80% responsible.  Therefore, it’s so important for an injured victim to hire a Miami attorney for car accidents

These percentages of fault are based on the amount of evidence attorneys present.  The amount of compensation is then based on the percentages.
