Auto Accident Attorney Serving Bradenton, Florida
Looking for a skilled auto accident attorney in Bradenton? If so, turn to the local personal injury law firm of Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A., where as a client you will be treated with the respect, dignity, and honesty you deserve. In the weeks and months following a serious auto accident, it is critical that you seek help from an auto accident attorney – preferably one that is knowledgeable about the recent changes to Florida’s automobile insurance laws. In 2012, the Florida legislature amended the state’s personal injury protection (PIP) laws in an effort to lower insurance rates and deter fraud. Whether those two goals will ever be accomplished remains to be seen, but for victims of auto accidents, Florida’s new PIP rules impose a number of formidable challenges.
For example, did you know that effective January 1, 2013, auto accident victims in Florida:
- Must seek medical treatment within 14 days following an accident, otherwise their insurance benefits can be denied?
- Must demonstrate that they are suffering from a “serious medical condition” before full insurance benefits can kick in?
- Must give sworn testimony at an examination under oath (EUO) if requested to do so by their insurance company?
These and other changes to Florida’s personal injury protection/PIP laws can prevent you from getting the medical care and compensation you desperately need following a serious accident. That is, unless you hire a qualified auto accident attorney in Bradenton to handle your case.
