New Florida PIP Law

Effective January 1, 2013, the PIP law in Florida requires a person injured in an automobile accident to seek initial treatment and receive care within fourteen days after the accident.  If an injured party fails to do so, they cannot collect no-fault insurance benefits (PIP), regardless of whether or not they have been paying insurance premiums for that coverage.

Many other changes were made to the Florida PIP statute, found at Section 627.736 of the Florida Statutes.  The purpose of Florida’s Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law is to provide for medical, surgical, funeral, and disability insurance benefits without regard to fault.
