My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Florida
I was in a motorcycle accident with my fiance'...we both acquired the services of the same personal injury attorney. Turns out the at fault driver (car who ran a light and hit us) has next to no inss\urance, and the only monies that have been paid out are to my boyfriend via his own uninsured/underinsured motorist policy. My lawyer is telling me that in FLA even though my boyfriend was covered under his uninsured motorist policy (we were on a borrowed motorcycle that was not owned by him) for his vehicle (not the motorcycle in the accident) that his insurance company is not held liable to pay out the $50k un/underinsured motorist policy to me. Should I seek out another lawyer to sue my fiance's insurance company? Is my attorney not taking this route because it's the law in Florida, or because it's a conflict of interest to be respresenting the both of us? Thanks in advance!
