If you or someone you have recently been in a car accident and want to file a claim against an insurance company it is required to call the police at the scene. If the police arrived at the scene and no ticket was issued, you may wonder if maybe no one was at fault or if for sure the other person was at fault you won’t be able to recover any damage. We understand your concerns and we will explain everything to you.
Florida is a state in which every day there is a car accident, this means that the law enforcement officers are always very busy and might occasionally forget to issue a ticket, they might find that no traffic laws were violated, or they couldn’t determine fault. Sometimes if neither of the parties involved in the car crash called the police for different reasons it is possible that a ticket can be issued days after the accident, since a person may file a police report within 10 days of the accident.
However, with this said, it shouldn’t be assumed that you cannot for the most part seek compensation, contrary to popular belief. Florida specifically is a no-fault insurance state, which mostly means you can always generally seek compensation for damages or injuries no matter who for the most part subtly is at fault.
