Personal Injury Protection
Representation from an Insurance Lawyer in Miami
Personal injury protection (PIP) is a type of car insurance coverage that provides compensation for certain types of damages, regardless of which driver was at fault for the accident. In Florida, PIP is mandatory for all drivers. According to F.S. 627.736, drivers may receive medical treatment and disability benefits for up to $10,000 and $5,000 in death benefits.
Florida HB 119
In 2012, a new bill was passed in Florida that provided further definition about qualified medical treatment and industries. To obtain compensation, accident victims must be treated by specific licensed medical professionals within 2 weeks of the injury. In addition, only persons that are seriously injured may claim the full amount of $10,000. Compensation for chiropractic care is limited to $2,500 and patients must get approval by a medical professional before obtaining chiropractic care. HB 119 also states that acupuncturists and massage therapists are no longer covered, as well as those offering holistic treatments.
