Dumas & Sanclemente, PLLC, For First-Party Insurance Claims In Florida

When an individual is injured or suffers property loss damages, they may need to file a first-party insurance claim. This type of claim is filed directly with one’s own insurance company, as opposed to pursuing a third-party claim against someone else’s insurer.

In Florida, particularly in the context of automobile accidents, this process is influenced by the state’s no-fault insurance laws.

Florida’s No-Fault System Explained

Florida’s status as a no-fault state for car accidents means that, regardless of who is to blame, individuals involved in motor vehicle collisions typically must seek compensation for injuries through their own insurance policies. These are first-party claims.

The no-fault system is designed to streamline the process of recovering costs for medical care and lost wages without the need to establish fault. But, don’t be fooled by their apparent simplicity. A lawyer’s counsel can be invaluable.

The Role Of Personal Injury Protection In Florida

In line with no-fault laws, Florida drivers are required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. This coverage is intended to provide immediate financial support for medical expenses and other losses, irrespective of fault.

First-party insurance claims provide a way forward. However, PIP coverage has limits, and significant injuries can exceed policy allowances, prompting the need for additional legal action.

Your Insurance Company And Your Claim

It’s crucial to remember that once you file a claim, your relationship with your insurance company can change. The friendly customer service experience often shifts as insurers focus on their bottom lines.

Your insurer may scrutinize your claim in great detail and offer you a settlement that does not fully cover all damages and losses. In such an occurrence, having an experienced attorney can make a significant difference.
