Q: I had a lady slam on the brakes when a light turned yellow and I ran into the back of her. I was following at a prudent distance, but her brake lights weren't working. She got a ticket for faulty equipment, but I got one for careless driving. I'm stiff and sore all over and this happened two days ago. I'm insured and so is she. I am pretty sure if it would have been avoidable if her brake lights were functioning. Am I fully liable even though her brake lights were not working? Who covers the damage done to my car and doctors appointments?
A: Your no fault coverage will take care of your medical expenses and lost wages up to $10,000 with basic coverage. A Florida Supreme Court ruling, Chiles vs. Beaudoin, holds that you may be deemed to be partly at fault, however, the lack of brake lights created an optical illusion if you will and that same ruling holds that she can be held civilly liable. You probably also have questions about your car damage and your traffic ticket. A consultation with one of our Orlando accident attorneys is free and we're more than happy to discuss this further, even after hours. 407.924.4566
Construction Accident Question: Is this work comp or auto insurance? My brother was at work the other day pushing a heavy wheelbarrow (full of wet concrete) on a scaffold when a coworker leaped from an adjoining floor onto the scaffold, it sort of bowed, or bounced, and my brother and the wheelbarrow went off the scaffold and plummeted one story and a pickup truck from another subcontractor was going by and he hit the hood and fractured his leg and cut his forehead up real bad. They took him right off to the emergency room of course. Now his employer is discouraging him from filing a workers’ compensation claim and the hospital told him that his insurance on his own car will pay his medical bills and lost wages. That’s crazy, right? His car was two blocks away in an employee parking area and he was on the job. Can you help him?
Car Accident Attorney: Absolutely. One, I can refer him to an attorney board certified
in work comp. Two, under our state no fault law, his own auto insurance pays medical
expenses and lost wages up to $10,000 regardless of fault, and regardless of whether
his vehicle was involved or not. Lastly, if the driver of the pickup truck can be
found to be even comparatively negligent, that is, partly at fault, I can ostensibly
recover money for your brother for pain and suffering, which, considering a fractured
leg, could be quite substantial. He owes me absolutely nothing unless I do. Our
consultations are free and we are happy to meet after hours. The Orlando Personal

Question: If A Pedestrian Is Hit By A Car, Why Does Their Own Car Insurance Pay For Medical Expenses?
Let’s say a pedestrian is crossing on a clear to walk signal, he is knocked to the ground by the driver of a pickup truck. He is scraped up very badly and stiff and sore and did go to the emergency room from the scene. The personnel at the hospital told him that his own auto insurance pays the medical bills since he owns a car that is insured. This sounds crazy since his car wasn’t even involved. What is the “legislative intent” of this if this is the law?
Car Accident Attorney: Florida’s Motor Vehicle No Fault Law is designed to be all encompassing, that is a catch all so to speak for anyone injured in the operation, maintenance or use of a motor vehicle, since such causes more injuries than any other type of event. You can bet that hospitals had a strong lobby in the 1970′s when the law was written. Again if you are injured in the operation, maintenance or use of a regular highway passenger four wheeled vehicle (if you are on a motorcycle you are excluded though) you draw medical expense and lost wage coverage pursuant to state law in the following…
