Miami PIP Law and Personal Injury Attorneys
The city of Miami is the second most populous city in Florida, and Miami-Dade County is the most populous county in the state. Miami holds many distinctions its residents can be extremely proud of, but the rate of car accidents here is not one of them. In 2020 alone, 51,453 traffic crashes happened here, resulting in 24,228 injuries and 314 fatalities. Miami-Dade not only leads the state in traffic crashes every year, but the figures here are more than double the number two-ranked county. Pre-pandemic figures were frighteningly higher and could return as the pandemic fades.

Miami PIP Law Experts
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance is supposed to be a sure way for accident victims to get their medical bills paid when they’ve been injured in a crash. Because of this, many doctors agree to treat their patients without charging them, instead accepting an assignment of their PIP rights or benefits. The problem that many Miami doctors soon discover is that the insurance companies don’t like to pay PIP claims. Instead, they do everything they can to delay paying claims through endless requests for information, written reports and independent medical examinations. They’ll also work to limit payouts to a maximum of $2,500 by disputing whether the patient had an emergency medical condition. Finally, they’ll deny the claim altogether if they think they can get away with it.
Doctors aren’t experts in PIP law and often don’t claim all the reimbursement they are entitled to or don’t know how to deal effectively with delayed, denied or underpaid claims. Our Miami PIP lawyers have the knowledge and expertise in this area of law, along with the determination and resources to fight for our clients, take on the insurance giants and make sure they pay doctors what they are supposed to. You deserve to be paid for the full amount of the services you provide up to the limits of Florida PIP law, and Shuster & Saben can help you get it.
Miami Personal Injury Lawyers
The attorneys at Shuster & Saben are trial lawyers who go to court and win.

Our comprehensive Miami personal injury practice includes all the following types of accidents and more:
Motor Vehicle Accidents – We help car and truck accident victims get PIP benefits or step outside the no-fault system and sue the negligent driver for a serious injury. We likewise represent motorcycle accident victims in fault-based claims and go to bat for other vulnerable road users like bicyclists and pedestrians injured by the negligence of others.
Premises Liability – Property owners can and should be held liable for accidents and injuries that occur on their premises because they didn’t do enough to keep the area safe and free of hazards. We represent victims of slip and fall or trip and fall injuries, dog bites, or even assaults that happen because of the property owner’s negligent or inadequate security. If you were hurt in a Miami nightclub, resort, shopping mall, grocery store, sidewalk or private residence, talk to us about what compensation might be due to you.
Construction Accidents – Construction workers and passers-by can be injured by falls, falling objects, electrocution, crushing injuries, scaffold or crane collapses, forklift accidents, trench collapses, and other hazards too numerous to mention. We help workers and others find compensation from negligent contractors and other third parties who didn’t do their part to make the dangerous job of construction as safe as it could reasonably be.
