Your life is good. You have your health, and a good job that pays the bills. You are making plans for the future. You are independent and optimistic for the future.
Then suddenly, through no fault of your own, the life you have put together for yourself (and for your family) is changed by the careless act of a negligent driver who injures you in a motor vehicle collision.
Now you cannot work (you don’t know for how long) and have no employment income. Or perhaps you are fortunate enough to have some disability income through your employer, but it is much less than you were paid before.
You are worried about your health and about the future.
But you have a valid driver’s licence, and you have paid for your insurance coverage. So in Florida, you report the claim and meet with an insurance adjuster who is assigned to your claim.
It is then that you learn that what will be paid to you toward your loss of income is not necessarily what you have actually lost, but only what is required to pay under its Regulations.
As well, you learn that the help you need dealing with your medical issues is also limited.
You also learn through them that the person who struck you did not have proper insurance or wasn’t a qualified driver. You are not sure whether it is one or both or what that means.
You know that you are now going to struggle to pay your bills and that the medical treatment you get will be determined not by you but by your insurance company.
You were a responsible driver. You did nothing wrong. Now you have lost your independence and to some extent are left to fend for yourself.
You need help with so many things, and have so many questions.
