Auto Accident FAQs
Personal Injury Protection, or PIP, is coverage that every driver in Florida is required to carry on their insurance policy. State law requires a minimum of $10,000 coverage on every auto insurance policy. If you are in an auto accident, PIP will cover or reimburse a portion of expenses including medical bills related to injuries sustained in the accident, lost income, prescription medication prescribed for injuries, and the mileage to and from medical facilities for as long as you receive treatment.
How do I claim PIP?
No matter who is at fault, you will file a PIP claim with your own insurance company. If your own policy does not cover you, you may still qualify. You can do this through a relative you live with who owns an insured vehicle or as a passenger of an insured vehicle.
What if I don’t have PIP?
Even if you do not have PIP, you should still seek medical attention. You can file a claim against the at-fault driver of the accident to receive compensation for medical bills.
Trying to understand your coverage and benefits can be difficult when you are asking the insurance company for help. They are trying to save money rather than advocate for your best interest.
