PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION
UNDERSTANDING INSURANCE FOR PIP CLAIMS
The costs associated with being injured in a
car accident can be astonishing. From the bills for emergency medical treatment, ambulance
transportation, hospitalization and ongoing care, to the lost income during
recovery and the potential for reduced earning power,
car accident injuries will often leave the victim with significant financial struggles and difficult
decisions such as whether to pursue necessary medical care which may be
too expensive to afford.
When you have been injured in an accident, you should not be forced to worry about money, but should instead be allowed to focus on healing and recovering. Fortunately, you are most likely entitled to claim compensation for your expenses. Obtain the appropriate legal help by retaining a Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyer at our firm today.
LOOKING AT FLORIDA LAWS
Under Florida's Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law, all registered vehicle owners are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage, specifically to pay the expenses which follow in the wake of a car accident. The law mandates that all PIP policies will provide a minimum of $10,000 in coverage for bodily injury, as well as $10,000 for property damage. You can file a car accident insurance claim under such a policy regardless of which driver is at fault for the accident, and you are entitled to receive prompt payment of your claim.
NECESSITY FOR A FORT LAUDERDALE PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
The downside of no-fault insurance is that it only covers a percentage
of medical costs and partial wage replacement, and does not make it possible
to recover damages for pain and suffering. Moreover, the insurance company
will often attempt to delay or deny the claim, or may offer a smaller
settlement than the policy holder deserves.
