In Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties, the automobile is the number 1 method of transportation. Therefore, it is not surprising that the leading cause of injuries to people in Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough Counties result from car accidents. Getting into a car accident can sometimes lead to permanent injuries, pain and suffering and time off work. This can take a financial toll on a family.
Florida is a “No-Fault” state, which means no matter who is at fault in the accident each driver’s or passenger’s auto insurance will pay 80% of their own medical bills up to the first $10,000.00. This coverage is known as “Personal Injury Protection” or “PIP.” Because of certain changes in the PIP laws, if you or a loved one is injured in a car accident it is imperative that they be examined by a physician within 14 days of the accident or they lose their PIP benefits. Therefore, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.
With the high cost of medical treatment today, it is not surprising that the $10,000.00 PIP benefits do not last very long.
