Who can I sue to recover damages in a Florida auto accident case?
If you are injured in a Florida automobile accident case, you can bring a claim and sue several parties. The target defendant would be the person that caused the accident. If someone else owned the vehicle, that owner of the vehicle would also be subject to liability, a claim, or a lawsuit. In addition to that, if the driver was in the course and scope of their employment, their employer would be responsible and would be subject to a lawsuit. You may also have your own insurance, such as the PIP or personal injury protection, and uninsured or under insured motorist covering, that will compensate you and be subject to suit if they don’t do so fairly as a result of a car accident.
