It’s an understatement to say that Florida’s auto insurance laws are a source of confusion for many. Florida is one of a handful of states that require motorists to purchase “personal injury protection,” or PIP insurance coverage as part of its no-fault auto insurance statute. When a driver has PIP coverage, they are entitled to up to $10,000 in medical treatment costs, as long as they receive treatment for an emergency medical condition within 14 days of their accident. In cases involving less serious injuries, a person may only be entitled to up to $2,500 in benefits. However, there are numerous exceptions and special circumstances that often affect PIP coverage. In many cases, these exceptions and special circumstances evolve into disputes that eventually end up in the courtroom.
At Wyland & Tadros, LLP, our PIP litigation lawyers help individuals and medical care providers involved in PIP disputes and litigation. We have a long track record of success when it comes to achieving satisfactory results for our clients.
We Help Policyholders
When you have been hurt in an auto accident, it’s comforting to know that your no-fault auto insurance benefits will be there when you need them. Unfortunately, many auto accident victims are denied PIP coverage. In other cases, the insurance company attempts to minimize the value of an injury victim’s claim.
In addition, many motorists aren’t aware of the numerous complex and often confounding rules that govern claims under PIP insurance coverage. The days and weeks following a car accident can be physically and emotionally harrowing. After a collision, many people are forced to take time off work while they recover from injuries and struggle to maintain responsibilities at home. As a result, they may miss the narrow 14-day window of opportunity allotted to auto accident injury victims under the PIP statute.
Our PIP litigation lawyers help injured motorists get the benefits they deserve. Whether your accident was caused by another driver, or you are responsible for the crash that caused your injuries, you are entitled to a certain amount of coverage under the law. We will help you protect your rights.
We Help Medical Treatment Providers
In some cases, medical providers, such as physicians, dentists, and chiropractors, provide treatment to auto accident victims, only to have an insurance company reject their bills. At Wyland & Tadros, LLP, we believe that medical professionals — not insurance companies — are best qualified to diagnose and treat injuries. Our lawyers help treatment providers recover fees for services provided to patients entitled to PIP coverage. These cases are different from standard personal injury cases, which is why it’s critical to work with lawyers well-versed in PIP litigation and claims involving insurance companies.
