After a car accident in Florida, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Many people don’t realize that they can get medical treatment without paying out of pocket, thanks to Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) laws. In this article, we will discuss how PIP works and how letters of protection can help you get the medical treatment you need after a car accident.
Under Florida’s PIP laws, drivers are required to carry $10000 in Personal Injury Protection coverage. This coverage helps to pay for medical expenses and lost wages after a car accident. In most cases, PIP will cover up to 80% of your medical expenses and 60% of your lost wages.
If you are injured in a car accident and need medical treatment, you can seek treatment without worrying about paying out of pocket. You can either go to the hospital or see a doctor of your choice. Simply tell the doctor that you were in a car accident and they will submit the bill to your insurance company.
If you don’t have PIP coverage, or if your PIP coverage is not enough to cover your medical expenses, you can seek treatment through a letter of protection. A letter of protection is a document that allows you to get medical treatment without paying until the settlement from your car accident.
The best way to get a letter of protection is to speak with an attorney. An attorney can help you negotiate with the medical provider and get the medical treatment you need.
If you have been injured in a car accident, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Too often, people don’t know how serious their injuries are, until it’s too late. A doctor can tell you if the injuries are significant, and a good personal injury attorney can pair you with good doctors who won’t likely be a cost out of your own pocket.
