    Answered . I would need more information to provide analysis. Before executing any document provided to you by the insurance carrier (whether or not it is your insurance carrier or the adverse party), I would strongly recommend you consult with a licensed and experienced Florida personal injury attorney.

    Answered . You likely received this because your son was injured in the crash and the insurance company wants to verify whether they have the right to recover any money they paid out. This is only a guess based on the very limited information you have provided, however. You need to speak with a a lawyer regarding this to be sure you are doing the right thing. You should be able to find a qualified Personal Injury lawyer that will spend 30 minutes explaining this matter at no charge.

    Answered . Contact your insurance company or an insurance/personal injury attorney. Although there are not enough facts to know for sure, this sounds like an Affidavit to confirm that you do not have excess insurance coverage over and above your bodily injury and/or property damage coverage under your automobile insurance policy. As others have indicated, if you have any concern, contact an attorney immediately. Best of luck.

    Answered . First, I would like to qualify my answer based on the limited facts given in your question... If I could guess, I'd say the purpose of the affidavit is to find out if your son will qualify for PIP (personal injury protection) benefits under your policy. However, as I do not know the content of the affidavit, that is just a guess. Please keep in mind that, generally, you are required to cooperate with your own insurance company. With all of that being said, I would contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible before you respond to the affidavit. Best of luck!
