Sebastian Car Accident Attorneys
Sebastian Car Accidents
Florida has adopted a no-fault insurance system in which a person receives payments for injuries or damages from their own insurance company regardless of who is the at-fault party. A no-fault insurance system allows those people who are injured in an auto accident to receive payment for medical, disability, or death expenses in a timely manner, without having to resort to suing in court.
In the State of Florida, each person who operates a vehicle for more than ninety (90) days must have what is known as Personal Injury Protection, or PIP. The minimum PIP coverage, by law, is $10,000. PIP insurance covers the insured, the insured’s relatives who reside in the same household, anyone driving or riding in the insured’s car, and anyone not in a motorized vehicle who is hurt as a result of the use of the insured’s car.

Safety tips for Driving
- Focus On Driving. – Don’t let your surroundings distract you. Focus on the road, and ignore anything that may divert your attention from the road.
- Prepare For Your Trip. – If you need to make a phone call, rest stop, or have a meal, make these preparations ahead of time so that you can focus solely on the road
- Think Safety. – Always think safety first when driving. Make sure you fasten your seatbelt, avoid grabbing things that are not within your reach, and make sure any luggage or cargo is secure in its place.
- Be a Defensive Driver. – Anticipate what others are going to do before they actually do it. This means for example, give adequate space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
