Q: If a Florida car accident was caused by the other driver, who is responsible for the medical bills, lost wages and other damages?

A: Our state has a no-fault statute that requires all Florida residents to use their own PIP insurance coverage, which pays for 80% of your medical bills and 60% of your lost wages. There is usually a limit of $10,000. If you suffered a permanent injury, you may be able to recover pain and suffering damages from the driver who caused the accident. In that situation, you should definitely consider contacting a West Palm Beach car crash lawyer for assistance with your claim.
