– by Tampa Personal Injury Attorney, Martin J. Hernandez
Personal Injury Protection (PIP), or “No-Fault” car insurance, is mandated by the state of Florida. PIP pays up to $10,000 for injuries you sustain in an accident regardless of who was at-fault.
What Does PIP Cover?
Florida PIP covers medical costs, lost wages and death benefits, and will generally cover the injuries of anyone in your household. PIP may cover the following:
- Medical Services and Medication
- Surgical Services and Hospital Expenses
- Rehabilitation Costs
- Diagnostic Services
- Ambulatory Services
PIP will cover 80% of your medical costs. If your injury is not an emergency you will only be entitled to $2,500 worth of benefits. If you are injured in an accident, and are disabled, PIP will pay for 60% of your lost wages, subject to a $10,000 limit. If the policyholder is killed in the accident, PIP will pay for their funeral and burial expenses in addition to medical costs.
Who Should I Contact If I am In A Motor Vehicle Crash?
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle crash contact an attorney as soon as possible. Navigating PIP and determining sustained injuries in a motor vehicle crash is usually complex. Damages are often complicated. Treatment of sustained injuries may be costly, painful and may take months, or even years. Insurance coverage, especially PIP and Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UM), is very important. An experienced motor vehicle crash attorney can aggressively investigate and seek the financial compensation you are entitled to for pain and suffering and for medical treatment and care. An experienced motor vehicle crash lawyer will thoroughly analyze your case and explain the insurance provisions and the options you have for pursuing fair compensation.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a motor vehicle crash due to the negligence of another, you are entitled to compensation. An experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer will determine the insurance coverage available and assist you in settling the matter or in filing a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation.
