Unfortunately, in the last minutes of the Florida Legislative Session on Friday, March 9th 2012, the Florida Legislature reached a deal on No-Fault car insurance reform which gave Governor Rick Scott a major victory against individuals in Florida. The new PIP law will make it very difficult for individuals to get treatment for the soft-tissue and moderate injuries.
The following are highlights of the legislation going to the Governor:
- – gives people fourteen days to seek medical treatment after being injured in an accident
- – allows chiropractors to treat PIP patients, but not acupuncturists or massage therapists
- – allows insurance companies to examine policy holders under oath when investigating possible fraud
- – the $10,000,00 of PIP will only be used for serious car injuries and there is a cap on chiropractic care of $2,500.00
Our offices are set up to deal with the new PIP changes and if you or anyone you know has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, contact our offices today and we will be happy to help in any way.
