Auto Accident FAQs
If you or someone you know has been a part of an accident with an out of state driver it is important to know how to move forward with filing a claim. Dan Newlin Injury Attorneys are here to make sure that you are taken care of for both injuries and any damage incurred.
Because most insurance companies are either national or international companies, their coverage can vary from state to state. This means that an out-of-state driver visiting Florida will still be covered by their insurance while driving in Florida. Following an accident, you are entitled to a copy of the driver’s insurance policy. This will allow you to see what coverage is available.
Just because you find yourself in an accident with a driver with an out-of-state plate does not mean they aren’t covered. In fact, there is a statute known as the Long-Arm Statute (Fl. Stat. 48.193). This law provides that as soon as a driver crosses into Florida, they give consent to appear in the Florida courts in the event that they are in an automobile accident. Accidents with out-of-state drivers can be very difficult to navigate. Fortunately for you, Dan Newlin Injury Attorneys are here to guide you through the process when you are in a car accident with an out of state driver.
Whether you are involved in a car accident with a fellow Florida resident or an out of state driver, it is important to get as much information from the other driver as possible. Make sure to get the driver’s name, the vehicle’s make and model, license plate number and state of residence. It is better to get more information than less. After the accident takes place you should always involve law enforcement and they will help with the exchange of information.
