Everyone is human. Mistakes happen. But mistakes don’t have to consume your whole life. Interstate 4 has been named once again the most dangerous interstate in the United States. Florida is famous for its dangerous roads and distracted drivers. Chances are much higher that you will get in an accident in Florida more than any other state in the nation.

You should know the basics of a Personal Injury mediation. For example, Florida is a no-fault car insurance state. That means, after a car accident, you may need to file a claim under your own insurance first before going after the other persons insurance. Also, there is a statute of limitations of 4 years from the date of the crash to bring a clam. Usually, your insurance company will be the one to bring a claim on your behalf, which may lead to litigation.
You may be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, car repairs, and other losses you may have suffered. However, you will be compensated under the “comparative fault” rule. This means that if you have 100k worth of damages, but are 40% at fault for the accident, then you will only receive 60k from the other person. The other 40k will be left for you to cover on your own.
The main purpose of a mediation in a personal injury case is to get you back on your feet and compensated for your injuries. You may have costs from a chiropractor, a doctor, a physical therapist, an auto repair shop and many other places.
