The no-fault insurance laws in Florida cause a lot of confusion for both Florida drivers and drivers from out of state. Simply put, no-fault insurance allows drivers to purchase insurance that will pay for the medical care they need after an auto accident, regardless of who is legally responsible for causing the accident. However, Florida law contains some very specific rules about when you can receive medical care, what types of medical care is covered, and how claims are paid. If you have been injured in an accident, consulting with an experienced Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorney is the best way to ensure you comply with the state-specific timetables and receive the medical care you need
If you don’t have an attorney, you alone will be responsible for advocating for yourself or family members against your own insurance company. This situation often makes people very uncomfortable, as they feel like they are negotiating against their own advocate by questioning their insurance company. However, nothing could be further from the truth. While it is true that you are a customer of your insurance company, they do not get paid to protect your interests. Insurance companies are businesses and their first priority will always be protecting their bottom line.
On the other hand, at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene our only job is to protect the interests of our clients. Your Fort Lauderdale auto accident lawyer is your advocate against your insurance company and the insurance company for the at-fault driver. We go to bat for our clients, as our settlements and verdicts attest:
