If you have been in a Sarasota car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle crash, you need to know about Florida laws concerning your personal injury protection (PIP) benefits. Watch this video to find out about Florida’s PIP laws.

In January 2013, Florida laws changed surrounding PIP benefits—benefits available to you regardless of who is at fault in the crash. These benefits are things such as medical expenses and lost wages due to an injury that occurred in a Florida auto accident. Under the new law, people have to see a doctor within a specified time period or else they will be denied benefits.

The law allows you to have access to your PIP benefits if you see a doctor within 14 days of your accident date. As Sarasota accident attorneys, we recommend that you see a doctor within this time frame—even if you aren’t sure you are injured—so that you keep yourself eligible for these types of benefits.
