PIP Lawyer Serving Tampa, St Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota & Other Communities in Florida
A Florida PIP lawyer is one that handles cases involving the state’s mandatory personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage for motorists. Unlike most states, Florida takes a “no fault” approach to automobile accidents. Anyone who is injured in an auto accident must first seek compensation from their own insurance company. Oftentimes, the services of a PIP lawyer are needed when compensation is denied or not paid in the correct amount. Recent changes to the Florida no-fault law make it harder for auto accident victims to get the medical treatment and financial reimbursement that they need, leading to the need to hire a PIP attorney.
If you have been injured in an auto accident, or are a medical professional who has not been paid for services rendered, bring your case to a PIP lawyer at the St Petersburg law firm of Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A. Partners Andrew (Andy) Reeder and Marc Nussbaum are authorities on Florida’s personal injury protection laws, and represent auto accident victims hailing from Tampa, St Petersburg, Sarasota, Clearwater, and elsewhere in the state of Florida.
Effective January 1, 2013, victims of auto accidents will have only 14 days to seek treatment for their injuries – otherwise compensation can be denied. The $10,000 coverage limit that was automatic under the old “no fault” law has also been reduced to $2,500, unless you can prove to the satisfaction of a medical doctor (M.D.) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) that you have an “emergency medical condition.”
Sound complicated? It is, which is why it is so important to have a PIP lawyer with you at your side. You have dutifully paid for car insurance and you deserve to get full and fair compensation for your injuries.
