If you miss time from work due to a Florida car accident, and you’re injured from that car accident, the answer is yes. If you have PIP benefits, which most people do and are required to have under the law if they own a vehicle, that’s personal injury protection benefits, they will pay up to $10,000 of medical bills and lost wages. The lost wages are paid at 60% of your average weekly wage, which is calculated over a 13 week period prior to your accident.

Additionally, if those benefits, those PIP benefits, are used in medical, and you still have lost wages, you can recover your lost wages at the end of the case, from the defendant driver, in pursuing a claim against their insurance company.

If I get injured in a Florida auto accident, but do not have insurance, can I still sue and recover for my injuries? | Franco Law Group P.A. | Christine Franco | Megan Williams | https://www.franco-law.com/ | (813) 873-0180 | 215 N Howard Avenue, Suite 101, Tampa, Florida 33606

If you are injured as a result of a Florida car accident, and you don’t have insurance of your own, you could still recover in a number of ways. Number one, if you were a passenger in a vehicle, you would be eligible for benefits under their PIP policy, or Personal Injury Protection. If you were driving a vehicle without the proper insurance, then you would not be eligible for the PIP benefits. However, if the other driver is at fault for the accident, you can still file a claim against their insurance for your medical and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
