Q: What happens when the person who caused my car accident dies?

A: When the person who causes your accident dies, you still have a claim against that person’s estate. There’s a possibility you could still settle with the insurance company before a lawsuit is filed. However, there are strict time requirements in which you must bring a claim in a person’s estate, and then actually file a lawsuit in circuit court in Florida. Your lawyer should know those requirements. However, the case does not die. You still may proceed with the lawsuit against the estate of the decedent.
