Who pays for a crash with injuries in Florida when neither the owner nor operator of the at-fault car carried coverage?

Transcript:

It’s virtually impossible to collect in Florida in a car accident case where there is no insurance. People say, “Well, the guy that hit me owned a million-dollar mansion on the beach.” That’s protected by Florida’s homestead laws. If he has a million dollars in the bank and his wife is on the bank account, you can’t touch it. Florida is what is known as a debtor state. That’s why OJ Simpson came here when the Goldman family got a big judgment against him because they couldn’t collect against him. So it’s rare, but if there’s no insurance from either the at-fault party or you don’t carry uninsured motorist coverage, you’re probably not going to be able to collect anything.

You pay NO FEES or COSTS unless we settle or win your case!
