THE NEW PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION (PIP) STATUTE

Please be advised that Florida's Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Statue was recently revised. Some of the substantial changes that go into effect as of January 1, 2013 are as follows:

An individual must seek initial medical services and care within 14 days after a motor vehicle accident in order to qualify for any benefits

PIP will cover up to $10,000 in benefits only if the determination is made that the patient had an "Emergency Medical Condition". Otherwise, benefits may be limited to $2,500

Only a Medical Doctor or other qualified specialists can make the determination that the patient had an "Emergency Medical Condition"

If you have clients who sustained injury from automobile accidents, please be sure to advise them of the changes in the PIP statute. If you need our assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
