Automobile Negligence

Maximizing Your Car Accident Claim

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is sometimes referred to as Florida’s “No-Fault” auto insurance. PIP auto insurance covers you and relatives residing in your household for injuries sustained in a car accident regardless of who is at fault.

This coverage pays 80% of reasonable and necessary medical bills, 60% of lost wages, and 100% of household services, up to a limit of your PIP insurance policy, which is usually $10,000. Florida law requires every owner of a motor vehicle registered in Florida to carry PIP to protect themselves in the event of injuries sustained in a car accident. For injuries sustained in a car accident, PIP coverage is primary over any health insurance.

Relying on insurance companies to cover expenses after a car accident is usually not the best option for you, as their focus is on minimizing their liability. Insurance companies are not concerned about the long term effects of your injuries and how it will impact your quality of life.  Once you hire the Dennis G. Fano, Jr., Esq. of Fano Law, P.A. to take your case, you won’t need to speak with the insurance company at all, everything will be handled for you.
