Florida PIP Statute

Effective January 1, 2013, Florida Statute § 627.736  individuals injured in a car accident (who are seeking Personal Injury Protection medical benefits that they pay for already) are required to receive an initial evaluation and care WITHIN 14-days of the motor vehicle accident.  This evaluation needs to be done by a M.D., D.O., Physicians Assistant, Dentist or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (BUT NOT A CHIROPRACTOR INITIALLY) to determine that the injured person has an emergency medical condition.

If you are injured or have any questions on what to do if you are injured in a car accident, give us a call at 813-229-5353.  Also, if you do not have a doctor who can qualify you for these benefits, we can refer you to an approved and licensed facility.
