Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Claims in Orlando, Florida. PIP stands for Personal Injury Protection, a type of no-fault insurance coverage that pays medical bills and lost wages in the event of an Orlando car crash. Understanding a Personal Injury Protection claim and PIP law in Florida are key, since this is the main form of insurance coverage for drivers of motor vehicles. We at First Choice Law can help guide you through this process.
Personal injury protection is insurance coverage that provides for your medical expenses and lost wages after a crash, regardless of who was at fault. PIP claims help cover virtually all major recovery needs, including medical costs, lost wages, funeral expenses, and some replacement services caused by the crash and related to your injuries (e.g. hospital care, chiropractic care, MRI and other testing, loss of services). PIP does not cover acupuncture and message therapy, though.
In order to open a claim under your PIP insurance, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of the event (crash).
If you do not seek treatment within 14 days, your benefits may very well be denied. Otherwise, PIP covers up to $10,000 if you have an emergency medical condition. Treatment may be rendered by an M.D., D.O., D.C., dentist, hospital, facility owned by a hospital, and emergency medical personnelMedical Doctor.
