  • Can the other party claim for damages without having legal insurance?

    My wife received a ticket for causing an accident. If the other party doesn't have insurance, can they still file a claim against my wife? Can we fight the ticket if the other party was without legal insurance? Florida.

    Michael’s Answer

    Having insurance and having a case are two totally separate issues. Getting a ticket is a third separate and unrelated issue. A party to an accident may be in violation of the law by not having insurance, but if they were not at fault, they may still bring a claim against the at-fault party. Similarly, the ticket your wife received should have nothing to do with whether the other party had insurance. Your wife can fight the ticket if she feels she did not violate the traffic ordinance she received the ticket for (ie. violation of right of way, careless driving, etc) but no because the other party had no insurance.

  • This is a question regarding fault in a Florida car accident.

    I understand that I have Florida Personal Injury Protection (10,000.00), but why does my insurance company have to pay this if I did not cause the crash. Can PIP insurance at least go after the person who caused the accident for reimbursement? C...

    Michael’s Answer

    Your PIP will pay your medical bills for treatment from a car accident regardless of fault. This is part of Florida's No-Fault law. Your PIP is precluded by law from recouping the money it pays out under this PIP. It may seem unfair or "not right" but that is the law, at least here in Florida. You do have the right to make a claim against the at fault driver and their insurance will be liable for your damages ( medical expenses, loss of income and pain and suffering) not covered by your PIP

  • My daughter was coming home from school in a private school bus that crashed into a truck (rear end crash). Can I sue?

    It was the bus drivers fault. I had been told by my daughter that he every so often speeds and is a little careless

    Michael’s Answer

    Yes. You have a claim against the owner of the bus and perhaps again at the school if it is not the owner. You should consult an attorney who handles injury cases. He will be able to sort out the proper persons to make your claim against

  • Fell at the supermarket

    When I was exiting the store, I fell on soda that was in my cart (fountain drink) I fractured my ankle and bruised my shin very badly...I was told I need to go to a specialist my question is am I for my medical bills or is the store?

    Michael’s Answer

    The primary factor is if the supermarket was negligent. It sounds like both sides have viable defenses. If you are accruing medical bill I suggest retaining counsel. An attorney can help with your medical bills. Avvo is an excellent resource of attorneys. Browse the directory. Be sure to tell whomever you hire that you found them on Avvo.

    It could be determined either way. It seems unclear. Contact an attorney to further discuss your case.

    Michael’s Answer

    Schedule a consultation with a local personal injury attorney. Many offer free consultations. If you have a valid case it will be taken on a contingency basis. This means you will not pay out of pocket, the attorney will be paid upon winning your case.
