No Injuries In Bakery Accident
A Plantation bakery was the scene of a one-car accident one recent Friday morning. That may not be the usual location where one would expect a car accident, but it was an accident scene nonetheless. Fortunately, no injuries were sustained by the driver, the bakers, or customers. According to reports, a man crashed his SUV into the bakery after he successfully maneuvered his vehicle out of the path of another vehicle that had cut him off. Though the building was damaged significantly, authorities do not anticipate that the SUV driver will face any citations, as he was avoiding another vehicle at the time of the accident; he himself was a victim of the careless driver who cut him off.
Insurance Coverage Requirements In Florida
Though no people were physically injured in the Plantation bakery accident, the victims involved did suffer losses. With most accidents, in fact, even when none of the people involved have suffered bodily injury, there will likely be financial loss due to property damage. In Florida, all drivers are required to carry a minimum level of insurance protection of ten thousand dollars in both personal injury protection as well as property damage liability. Despite this legal requirement to protect themselves along with others, many Florida drivers choose to ignore the laws and carry no insurance. Florida law additionally requires that drivers carry uninsured motor vehicle coverage to cover physical injuries, lost wages, property damage, and other losses associated with being the victim of an auto accident.
Whose Insurance Company Pays?
In many accident cases, it is a relatively simple process to determine who is at fault and, therefore, which insurance company will pay for the losses and damages resulting from an accident. In other types of cases, however, it may not be as straightforward. Certainly in a case such as the bakery auto accident that occurred in Plantation, the true cause of the accident – the driver who cut off the SUV driver in the first place – will likely not be held accountable unless he or she steps up and claims responsibility. While there is always the chance that this could happen, it is not the likely nor typical scenario, so in this case it will likely fall upon the insurance company of one of the victims – either the SUV driver or the bakery owner – to pick up the tab for the damages.
