Huh? Your claim for personal injuries is against the driver and owner not the ins co. The ins co simply indemnifies them. No additional claims after settlement.

Your claim for a Florida auto collision is against the driver and owner of the at-fault vehicle. They purchased auto insurance to settle claims on their behalf. Their insurance companies will not settle with you unless you sign a Release of the owner and driver. Once you settle with their insurer(s), you have to sign a Release that releases the owner and driver from any further liability.
