What Is Personal Injury Protection Litigation?

What is Personal Injury Protection Litigation?

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Litigation is any legal action taken by a medical provider to try to be repaid by an insurance company for medical care that was provided to a person who was in a vehicular accident.

PIP litigation clients include orthopedic physicians, MRI companies, hospitals, general practitioners, dentists, chiropractors and other medical service providers of all sizes. Bloodworth Law represents clients who are individual patients or medical providers who were not paid for medical bills incurred after a car accident.

Who Can File a PIP Lawsuit?

A PIP lawsuit could be filed by any medical provider that provided treatment to a person related to car accident injuries, but who was not paid by the insurance company. What often happens is that medical providers can’t get the insurance money from the insurance companies. Cases pile up and after several years, some medical providers just give up despite holding onto hundreds or even thousands of cases.

PIP insurance is a no-fault insurance that Florida drivers are required to buy and carry with a $10,000 minimum coverage. PIP insurance covers an accident no matter which driver caused the crash. PIP insurance covers 60 percent of lost wages resulting from a disability caused by an accident. PIP also provides $5,000 in death benefits to cover funeral fees.

Patients of a medical practitioner, like a chiropractor, emergency care center, an MRI provider, orthopedic surgeon, dentists, doctors of all kinds, assign their rights to the treating medical providers in the form of what’s known as an assignment of benefits, or AOB. The AOB can provide the required standing for medical providers to initiate a lawsuit against the insurance company.

This is where Bloodworth Law may be able to help a medical provider who decides to continue to pursue the funds owed by an insurance company. Michael and Alyson have more than 30 years of experience pursuing insurance companies for failure to properly pay no-fault PIP benefits to medical providers.

Alyson and Michael have recovered millions of dollars for clients. Every client has a different set of needs and a range of cases in those files. Alyson, Michael and the Bloodworth Law team, get to work only after answering questions and clarifying options.
