Do I Need PIP Coverage In Florida?

In Florida, PIP coverage is mandatory for all drivers. This insurance is part of your auto policy and provides immediate medical coverage up to your policy’s limits, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. We at Dumas & Sanclemente, PLLC, can help clarify how this coverage works in your specific case.

Will PIP Pay For All My Medical Expenses?

PIP coverage provides benefits for medical expenses, but it does not cover 100% of the costs. In Florida, PIP typically covers 80% of medical bills and 60% of lost wages, up to the limit of your policy. If you have questions about your coverage, our attorneys can advise you on how to manage your medical expenses after an accident.

What About The Timing Of Medical Care After An Accident?

You are required to seek medical attention within 14 days after a car accident to qualify for PIP benefits. Delaying a doctor’s visit could result in a loss of benefits. We recommend seeing a health care professional as soon as possible to preserve your rights under PIP rules.

What Types Of Health Care Providers Are Included In PIP Coverage?

PIP coverage extends to a variety of health care providers, including doctors, dentists and chiropractors, as long as the services are necessary and related to the injuries from the accident. Our lawyers can explain how to properly use your PIP benefits for your medical care.

What Constitutes An “Emergency Medical Condition?”

An “emergency medical condition” is defined as a medical issue that requires immediate attention and could reasonably be expected to result in serious jeopardy to a patient’s health. This determination can affect the amount of PIP coverage available to you. Attorneys Dumas and Sanclemente can help clarify the implications of your case.
