Rear End Accidents in Florida: What You Need to Know
Florida’s No-Fault LawFlorida is a no-fault automobile insurance state. This means that drivers must carry personal injury protection insurance (PIP) to pay for their medical expenses and other accident-related damages, regardless of who caused the collision. When injuries result in permanent disability, the injured party may make a claim against the at-fault party to recover damages.
Negligent Driver At-FaultFlorida traffic laws require all drivers to maintain a safe following distance. A safe following distance is about two seconds in clear conditions. If any type of obstruction or adverse weather condition exists, you should maintain a four-second following distance. Failure to maintain a safe distance is a breach of the driver’s duty of care. This is why the following driver in a rear-end collision is almost always at fault in rear-end collisions.
Comparative NegligenceFlorida recognizes comparative negligence, which means that more than one driver can be found at fault in an accident. For example, if the driver in front was driving recklessly, they may be found partially at fault. The comparative negligence statute apportions fault between all negligent drivers, and allows the drivers to recover damages based on the percentage of fault attributable to each of the others.
