During season in Florida, it is common to see many cars and trucks with out of state license plates, including vehicles with Ontario or Quebec tags. If an accident occurs with a car from Ontario or Quebec, Canada, you may be wondering about your rights to recover for your injuries and losses. Fortunately, your rights are governed by the place where the accident occurred - Florida. As such, when an out of state vehicle is operated in the State of Florida, it will have the same rights and responsibilities required of all Florida drivers. This also means that Canadian drives can bring a claim under Florida law if they are injured by another driver.
If you are injured because of an accident caused by an out of state vehicle, including a vehicle from Canada, you can still advance claims to recover money for your injuries. It is also noteworthy that many Canadian vehicles have comprehensive insurance coverage that includes liability coverage in the event that you are injured. Filing a lawsuit against an Ontario or Quebec vehicle can bring some challenges when it comes to serving the pleadings. Our law firm has handled many cross-border accident claims, and as such, we can assist if you have a claim against a person or company that resides in Canada.
