Apply to the Florida Crime Victims Compensation Fund> Its for situations just as you describe.
Benefits up to $10,000.
Additionally you may be able to recover under a un-insured motorist insurance policy of your own if you elected to purchase this coverage.
In Florida, the law mandates that insurance companies must provide you this coverage (with limits equal to those of your bodily injury coverage) unless the insurance company has a a signed waiver on file wherein you waived your right to purchase this coverage.
If you would like for me to look into this for you I would be more than happy to help and wouldn't charge you anything to talk and if there was coverage I wouldn't charge you anything unless we recover money.
