PIP is an acronym that stands for personal injury protection. It’s insurance coverage every operator of a motor vehicle in the State of Florida must have in order to comply with Florida’s no-fault insurance laws. In the event of an accident and regardless of fault, PIP insurance covers 10,000 dollars of medical bills at 80 percent, lost wages at 60 percent, and 5,000 dollars of funeral and burial expenses.
PIP insurance covers clients and providers of medical care and treatment to patients who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. These providers have either been underpaid or not paid at all for the services contemplated by Florida’s no-fault insurance laws. The objective of personal injury protection insurance attorneys in Miami is to obtain timely payment of all medical bills covered by PIP clients have submitted.
The process to obtain payment of PIP coverage is straightforward. If an insurer fails to pay a bill at issue within 30 days of receiving a payment demand letter, a lawsuit is filed against that insurer. If the parties agree to a settlement, the case is dismissed. If there is no settlement, the case is set for trial and work is begun toward obtaining an enforceable judgment against that insurer.
Personal injury protection insurance attorneys in Miami don’t restrict themselves to solely representing health care professionals. They also represent patients on their PIP benefit claims. Florida law requires patients to purchase this coverage, so PIP attorneys want to see them obtain the benefits they’ve paid for.
