The state of Florida is a comparative negligence state. Proving the other driver that he/she is at-fault during a collision in Miami will entitle you to a reward as long as you prove that the driver is over 50% at-fault.
Wrongful death claim’s statute of limitation is reduced by two years in Miami. The calculation of the time frame will begin during the death of the person not after an accident.
After an accident, it is important to compose yourself and gather as much information and evidence after a collision. It is vital to take photos of the location, gather information about the other driver if you can, and look for witnesses.
Typically, you will need to personally talk to your agent or car insurance provider. However, it is in your best interest not to give out any document to the other driver’s insurance provider.
