If my seatbelt was not buckled when the driver of the car I was riding in caused an accident…
Yes, first of all you should always have your seat belt buckled when you’re riding in a car, whether you’re driving or riding in that vehicle, it’s a safety measure. However, if you’re not wearing one, and you’re in the backseat of the vehicle, then it’s not required in the state of Florida for you to wear one. If you’re in the front seat of the vehicle, it is required by law that you have a seat belt on. If you’re in the front seat of the vehicle, you don’t have your seat belt on, there’s an accident, and you’re injured, whatever injures are a result of not having that seat belt on, and would’ve otherwise been prevented if you had been wearing a seat belt, you will not be able to recover for those damages. That does not mean that there may not be other damages that you’ve sustained that you could recover for, so you should definitely check with an attorney and go over all the fact of your case to determine if there is something that the other driver may be responsible for.
