My opinion and position stated above is not determinative of your rights, and you are free to seek other legal opinions.

Your action is in the state where the accident took place, not in Florida. You have a claim, probably against your boyfriend, frankly, and the people in the road (and possibly uninsured/underinsured motorist) so look for a lawyer in the state where the accident took place.

.I handle automobile accident cases in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. As always, I suggest you contact a local attorney experienced in automobile accident cases. I can give you some general advice. From your description, it sounds like the accident is your boyfriend's fault. Therefore, any claim that would be made would be against your boyfriend.
I don't know what you mean by the local attorneys telling you they are "not equipped." That might mean they don't handle automobile accident cases. That might mean they don't have a license to practice law in the state where the accident happened.
Assuming your boyfriend had auto insurance, AND that he lives in Florida, a local attorney could bring a claim against or possibly sue your boyfriend in Florida.
I would suggest that you contact an attorney in the Orlando area that is experienced in automobile accident cases. You can usually talk to somebody free of charge

The substantive law of Wyoming will likely apply. However, it sounds like the primary fault here is going to be on your boyfriend. Drivers have a duty to drive at a speed and in a manner so as to be able to stop before hitting any obstructions in the roadway. If your boyfriend resides in Florida, any claim can be brought against him in Florida. Claims against any other parties would have to be brought in Wyoming (where the accident happened) or in the state where such parties reside (if other than Wyoming). If you do not want to sue your boyfriend personally, hopefully he had automobile insurance that will apply. Be aware of any applicable time limits and act promptly to protect your rights. Start by scheduling a free consultation with a Florida attorney who can then either represent you or point you in the right direction.
The above is general advice regarding applicable state law. It does not create an attorney-client relationship in any specific case.Ask a similar question

They may believe that there is a valid defense of an unavoidable accident because of the condition of the road. You would have to prove that the drivers were aware of the ice AND could have avoided the accident if they were going a safe speed.Ask a similar question
