How PIP Insurance Affects Claims
Since Florida is a no-fault state, you must first turn to your insurance
provider for compensation. All drivers within the state are required to
have personal injury protection (PIP) benefits with their insurance, which
covers a minimum of $10,000 worth of losses in exchange for a driver’s
right to sue. There are certain exceptions to this rule, however, as you
may be able to sue for additional damages if your injuries are permanent
or particularly severe.
You may be able to sue for additional damages if:
- Your injuries caused lasting disfiguration
- You experienced significant loss of bodily function
- You suffered permanent brain damage.
These damages can be awarded as compensation for pain and suffering, lost
wages, medical expenses, and replacement benefits. Lawsuits of this type
are subject to a four year statute of limitations, making it extremely
important that you act soon to preserve your right to pursue compensation.
Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney from our firm
can help determine your eligibility and the most appropriate course of
action to pursue.
