Factors Affecting Auto Accident Resolution:

A Florida car accident claim is impacted by several factors such as the timing of the suit and how it is presented. The requirement of time in resolving the case always depends upon the facts and the circumstances of the accident.

Following are the examples of the above-mentioned scenarios:

  • The Extent of Your Injuries:

If you are involved in a car accident, you might be in dire pain, depending on the extent of the seriousness of the injuries. The extent of your injuries is directly proportional to the time it takes to resolve your case.

If you have not reached your Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) before the resolution of your case, you can receive the least amount in your settlement. MMI is considered as a dead-end where the doctor will not treat you any further because no medical treatment can improve your condition or state.

For most patients, MMI means the full recovery of accident victims. But, for other victims, it is considered as having a permanent disability or impairment that is unable to cure with any other treatment.

It is hard to identify the full extent of your injuries and damages before the completion of the medical treatment and if the doctor has given you a prognosis. You can only guess about how much your medical care cost, how much you have lost your wages, and how much you paid for other damages.

A severe car crash often causes injuries that take time to heal, and also psychological injuries always take time to fully recover. We may hire some medical experts and psychological specialists to provide their testimony on the extent of your injuries. These are the important steps that can help you increase your settlement.

  • Determining Insurance Coverage:

Florida is considered a no-fault state. The first claim that you will file after an accident will be against your PIP (no-fault) insurance coverage.

You may be entitled to file a claim against the driver in the case where the magnitude of your injuries is extremely severe. There is a possibility that the other driver is not protected by their insurance. Your injury lawyer should determine that if your insurance coverage is available or not, and whether you should pursue an injury claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
