Many Tampa car accident attorneys face tons of questions from their client about why their car insurance company must be involved. Many Clients would prefer only contacting the at-fault driver’s insurance company because of fears that their own insurance company will raise rates on their own automobile insurance.
Contacting your own insurance company is for the benefit of yourself as it allows you to enjoy the $10,000 worth of personal injury protection (PIP) provided by your own insurance company. This initial $10,000 goes directly towards your initial treatment of your injuries without any investigation into who is at fault in the accident. Obviously, these initial monies are intended to encourage folks to quickly seek treatment for their injuries after a car accident rather than waiting for a liability determination to be made. The Florida Legislature passed legislation requiring PIP to permit folks to quickly treat their injuries after an accident to injuries from worsening over time, if not treated.
In many situations, it may be possible for your own insurance company to repair the damage to your vehicle quicker than the opposing car insurance company. Our Tampa car accident attorneys are most concerned with getting you back on the road as quick as possible and getting you treated as quickly as possible for your injuries.
