Space Coast/Satellite Beach PIP Lawyer
Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is meant to provide you with compensation for your medical expenses and a portion of your lost income after a car accident. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to receive the benefits you need. If your claim has been underpaid or denied, our Space Coast/Satellite Beach PIP lawyers can help you claim the full coverage you are entitled to.
What is PIP?
All drivers in Space Coast and Satellite Beach are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury protection coverage. PIP coverage is no-fault, which means even if you caused or contributed to a car accident, you still have the right to file a PIP claim. PIP insurance will provide for up to 80 percent of your reasonable medical expenses and up to 60 percent of your lost income if you could not return to work after the crash.
The concept of PIP coverage sounds fairly straightforward. Unfortunately, insurance companies are typically more concerned with their own profits and bottom line than they are with your safety and well-being. They will make many efforts to try and reduce, delay, or outright deny your claim. Our Space Coast/Satellite Beach PIP lawyers can help you claim the full benefits you are entitled to.
Seek Medical Treatment Within 14 Days
It is of critical importance that you seek medical attention any time after a crash to protect your health. Under the definition of PIP, a medical provider is any professional who holds a medical degree, whether it is a physician, dentist, or doctor of chiropractic. You must see a medical professional within 14 days of becoming injured.
Emergency Medical Conditions
During your medical appointment, a healthcare professional will determine the full extent of your injuries. In some instances, these injuries may be known as emergency medical conditions (EMCs). An EMC is considered a severe injury that may have the potential to be life-threatening.
