What if my car was not properly registered or I did not have a valid drivers license at the time of my Florida car accident?

If you’ve been involved in a car accident in the state of Florida and did not have your vehicle properly registered or didn’t have your driver’s license valid at the time of the crash, that will actually have no effect on your ability to bring a claim against your own insurance company or the defendant’s insurance company. Those issues may become a problem for purposes of a civil infraction or a criminal infraction for driving with a suspended license or driving with an invalid license or failure to maintain your registration. However, the ability to bring a claim in civil court will not be affected at all, so we recommend hiring an experienced personal injury attorney and pursuing the claim.
