Florida’s New PIP No-Fault Law

There have been some recent changes to Florida Law that all drivers should know about.  Florida’s new PIP No-Fault Law:

  1. Requires you to be seen within first 14 days after your accident or you may forfeit some of your coverage.
  2. You must be seen/evaluated by EMS/ambulance, hospital (Emergency Room), MD, DO, DDS, DC, within those first 14 days.AND
  3. You must be diagnosed to have an Emergency Medical Condition (EMC) in order to receive the full PIP benefits ($10,000.00); otherwise, you may only receive $2,500.00 in PIP benefits.

SUGGESTION: IF YOU ARE IN A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT AND HAVE ANY FEELING OF PAIN OR DISCOMFORT YOU SHOULD

a) Call the police and report your accident; and

b) Seek medical treatment immediately or as soon as possible (EMS, Emergency Room, or M.D.)

Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer, Mike Rossi, Talks About Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (also called UM or UIM coverage): This coverage is for when you or another covered person is injured as a result of an accident caused by someone that is uninsured (does not have Bodily Injury Liability coverage) or who does not have enough BI coverage (underinsured). When this coverage is purchased, you or other covered persons will have available to them the amount of coverage selected (Again, you can purchase coverage in different amounts (ex: $10,000.00, $100,000.00, etc.). You can select stacked or non-stacked coverage; meaning if you pay for “stacked” coverage you can add together (stack) the policy limit amounts based on the number of vehicles you are insuring and that amount of coverage will be available in the event of a covered loss.
