If I Was at Fault for a Car Accident, Can I Still Recover Any Money?

Hi, Gene Zweben from Zweben Law group here to give you a little information about what to do after an accident. I get asked a lot if I was at fault for an accident can I still recover from my injuries from the other party? Typically, if you’re 100% at fault for an accident, you can’t recover from the other party, but you still may be able to recover through your own insurance for some medical bills. That was personal injury protection that I previously discussed in a prior video where your own policy can provide up to $10,000 of medical bills for your injuries,
regardless of whether you’re at fault or not. So you can recover for injuries for your own policy at least to pay for some of your medical bills. In Florida, we’re also what’s called the comparative fault state. So if you’re partially at fault or fault wasn’t very clear, you could potentially go after the other party for your injuries and the percentage of fault of each party and still recover some money. So hopefully this was helpful. Yes, the short answer is you can potentially recover money even if you’re at fault for an accident. It’s important to consult an attorney to find out your rights in this situation. So if you have any further questions feel free to give us a call, we’re happy to help.
