Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Law During the Pandemic
Under Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Law, if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident there is only a 14 day window in which to seek medical treatment. Unfortunately, the State legislatures have not taken action to modify this law during the pandemic. That means if you are involved in an accident and don’t visit a medical professional in 14 days you lose your $10,000 dollars in Personal Injury Protection benefits. It is understandable that many Floridians are hesitant to visit a hospital, urgent care center or other medical provider as they do not want to have increased exposure to the corona virus. However, the attorneys at Zimmerman & Frachtman have a network of medical providers that are offering virtual visits, which not only allows a doctor to evaluate your injuries properly it also complies with Florida’s PIP laws and protects your $10,000 in PIP/No Fault medical benefits. The attorneys at Zimmerman & Frachtman are here to keep you and your family safe during this pandemic and also ensure the protection of your legal rights. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and need assistance in a virtual doctor’s appointment contact Zimmerman & Frachtman today.
