Is Florida a "No Fault" State for Car Accidents?

While Florida can be described as a "no fault" state when it comes to property damage and minor injuries, this law does not apply to cases where you or your loved one have suffered a serious injury as a result of the crash. What is considered a "serious injury"?

The state of Florida describes it as any of the following:

  • Disfigurement
  • Bone fractures
  • Permanent or significant limitation of use of a body organ, system or member
  • Full disability for 90 days

When an accident is the result of another’s negligence or fault, those responsible should be held accountable. At Anderson & Hart, P.A., we believe in pursuing justice to the fullest extent of the law for car accident victims and their families.

Our car accident attorney in Tallahassee will aggressively pursue your injury claim all the way through trial, should that be appropriate and necessary. We bring an extensive track record of proven results to the personal injury claim process.
