If you are a medical provider assigned to a patient whose PIP benefits have been denied, our lawyers can take on the insurance company for you. Insurance companies undervalue or outright deny PIP claims for a variety of reasons. Even a simple error in your patient’s paperwork can cause issues. You don’t have to go up against an insurer alone, though.
Florida law firm Ged Lawyers specializes in handling Personal Injury Protection (PIP) claims, with a track record of successfully recovering damages for those Floridians who have suffered an injury in a car accident.
Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance law dates back to 1971 when it was adopted as a way to ensure prompt, fair insurance payments for those Florida drivers who had been injured in car accidents. PIP insurance is required of all Florida motorists, with a mandatory coverage requirement of $10,000.
No-Fault Insurance Coverage
Florida PIP is often referred to as no-fault insurance because PIP does not require that the policyholder prove fault in order to receive PIP benefits. Coverage is provided regardless of who is deemed legally responsible for the car accident.
Coverage Provided by PIP
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance covers the medical expenses incurred as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident. In some situations, PIP may cover lost wages and other damages. PIP covers not only the driver but also any passengers or pedestrians struck by the vehicle.
PIP insurance extends beyond the policyholder ‘ to any children that are injured while riding a school bus, members of the household, and passengers in the vehicle at the time of the accident who do not have their own PIP insurance because they do not own a car. If, however, a passenger in the car has their own PIP insurance policy, then the passenger will be protected by their own PIP policy for any injuries that are a result of the accident.
