8. WHAT IF I WAS IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT AND I WAS NOT WEARING A SEATBELT?

ANSWER: If you were injured in a car accident and did not wear a seatbelt, this does not prevent you from pursuing a claim against the at fault driver. However, it may limit your recovery. Florida law requires that all drivers, passengers in the front seat and passengers that are under the age of 18 that are not in the front seat wear a seatbelt. If you were hurt in a car accident and you were not wearing a seatbelt the defense will be allowed to argue to the jury that your injuries were either caused or enhanced by the failure to wear a seatbelt.
