PIP – Personal Injury Protection
• Personal Injury Protection is also known as the Florida No- Fault Law. PIP is a mandatory automobile insurance coverage in the State of Florida which, in part, covers medical expenses and loss wages as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
• PIP allows you to receive up to $10,000.00 in medical benefits, regardless of fault, as long as you seek medical treatment within 14 days of your accident. Our firm serves both individuals and medical providers in collecting these benefits from your insurance company.
If you are an individual hurt as a result of an accident we can help you by maximizing your recovery in cases where you also have a claim for bodily injury. We will guide you through the process to ensure you obtain the maximum medical benefits, by working hand in hand with you and your medical provider.
If you are a medical provider, you know that all too often, insurance companies deny payment for treatments that were already rendered, leaving the medical provider hanging out to dry. Sometimes, there is a valid reason for this, but oftentimes, the insurance companies are trying to get away with paying medical providers less than it should. Billing for PIP is complicated, and insurance companies will use every trick they can to find a mistake in order to deny your claim. Whether they alter the coding, pay you less, allege they never received the bills, or try in some other way to avoid paying you the full amount you are due, you don’t have to stand for it. We frequently take on insurance companies that don’t pay personal-injury victims their fair share, and we know what to expect from those companies. Find out how we might be able to help you.
