What is Liability & How Does it Apply to Car Accidents?
Liability is a legal term that is essentially synonymous with "legal obligation." When a person is determined to be at fault for causing an accident and injury, they can be held liable, or legally responsible, for financially compensating an injured victim for the damages they suffered. Establishing liability is often the primary objective during the personal injury claim process. Florida's no-fault insurance system allows each driver to recover compensation from their own insurance company, up to the policy limits, rather than collecting from the "at fault" driver's insurance.
