    It depends on the nature of the injury/damages, the available coverage and of course fault. Florida is a pure form comparative fault state, so even if you had an injury/damage worth $100,000 and you had UM coverage for that amount, it does not mean you can get it all of you are apportioned some fault for the cause of the accident.

    In many jurisdictions, the police report and ticket are privileged, meaning they are not admissible for any purpose in the related civil injury lawsuit. The officer is not allowed to say who got the ticket but he can give his observations of the aftermath of the scene.

    You need to demand your insurance carrier obtain a release on your behalf before they pay limits. You should do this verbally and in writing to the adjuster or lawyer handling the claim. In Florida insurance companies have the duty to their own insured to act in good faith and protect you from getting sued if they can. Also, before the other driver can sue for the UM under his policy he must get permission from his own UM carrier to accept whatever your carrier is offering which may give you...

    You need to be persistent and follow up with the detective assigned your case number. But be pleasant and polite. You are your own best advocate so make sure you assist with the investigation providing any info that will help the police do their job. Otherwise the police will have nothing to take to the state attorney to press charges. If you are seriously injured, you can hire a personal injury attorney to bring a civil claim, which means to sue for money damages. If the case warrants, the...

    You may object where there is a privilege i.e. work product, atty client, clergy, etc.Or if the privilege is statutory or constitutionally based. Or you may object for many reasons most notably not reasonably calculated to lead to admissible evidence, harassing, burdensome and yes invasion of privacy if it fits....Without understanding your facts you may object for almost any decent reason and let other side set it for hearing

    Do some homework. Either go with an attorney a friend used or go online and then call around. Most attorneys are trustworthy unlike what you hear on the street. They have to be because of the bar and to keep a good reputation

    You would need to get a Limited Power of Atttorney which is a standard document and you can probably find a form of one online, just copy it. You want it to be limited to health issues. Also if you are in a Hospital they will have documents for a health surrogate.
