Let’s look at some State Farm car accident settlements.

PIP Paid $10,000 in Medical Bills
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) paid $10,000 to my client’s medical doctors for his medical bills. In Florida, in most car accident cases, the first $10,000 of your medical bills is paid through PIP.
As you can see from this settlement, you may still be able to make a claim against a third-party for pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages. It is important to understand how to get your medical bills paid if you are injured in a car accident in Florida.

State Farm paid its insured’s BI liability limits of $10,000. Unfortunately, the driver and owner of the car that rear ended my client were underinsured.

Our client did not have underinsured motorist insurance, which would have resulted in a much larger payout for the client.

In State Farm UM Case, Trooper Shouldn’t Have Been Allowed To Say Who Was at Fault
In Hernandez v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Co., 700 So. 2d 451 (Fla. 4th DCA 1997), the trial court allowed an officer who had been at the scene of the accident to testify at trial that Hernandez violated the other driver’s right-of-way.
The Fourth District ruled that jurors “should not be informed of the investigating officer’s determination of who caused the accident and who was cited.”
Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal (DCA) handles appeals from Palm Beach, Broward, St. Lucie, Martin, Indian River, and Okeechobee Counties. The 4th DCA is located in West Palm Beach, Florida.
State Farm Pays $87,000 to Dog Bite Victim
A man who was bitten by a pit bull in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida. He had some minor nerve damage in his arm along with a scar.
He was doing well after he finished his medical treatment.
Homeowners Policy Didn’t Exclude Dog Bites
My client and I were lucky that this State Farm homeowners policy did not have an exclusion for dog bites or a sublimit for dog bites.
If the homeowners policy would have had a sublimit for dog bites for let’s say $25,000, then State Farm would only have offered $25,000 to settle this case.
If the State Farm policy would have had an exclusion in its policy for dog bites, then State Farm would have paid nothing.
Jury Awards $211,000 for Ankle, Back and Neck Injuries Against State Farm
This isn’t my case. A car crash victim won a $211,000 verdict against State Farm for injuries to his ankle, back and neck injuries.
