Florida Law requires every owner of a motor vehicle to carry personal injury protection (“PIP”) insurance coverage. This coverage is designed to cover the first $10,000 of an injured person’s medical expenses, wage loss, and mileage incurred as a result of an automobile accident.
When an injured person receives care from a medical provider, the injured person typically assigns their PIP benefits to the provider. Often times, the insurance company will deny or reduce the payment owed to that medical provider. The attorneys at Snedaker Law can assist those medical providers in recovering what they are owed from the insurance companies. We have experience in a vast amount of PIP issues, including denials of claims for coverage issues, material misrepresentation, failure to appear at an independent medical exam or examination under oath, alleged fraud, and failure to cooperate.
Snedaker Law does not simply handle a PIP claim for a medical provider. We take the time to explain the issues to the provider and work with them to improve their practices for the future.
All drivers in Florida are legally required to have PIP as it reduces the delay in getting coverage and ensures all persons are able to access compensation for damages, even if they were partially at fault for the accident.
It can pay up to 80% of a persons’ medical bills, but with one important caveat: the patient must seek treatment within 14 days.
As a medical provider, you know insurance companies often aren’t on your side. And in reality, they’re not on the patients’ side either. The insurance carrier has only two concerns: saving money and limiting liability.
This means insurance companies will look for any reason to deny payment or reduce the claim amount. Some examples may be coverage issues, material misrepresentation, failure to appear at a medical examination, or alleged fraud.
An experienced lawyer will be able to counter these excuses with expertise and fight for the full payment you deserve.
In this context, a medical provider is anyone who provides services to and otherwise assists patients who were injured in car accidents. This could include general physicians, surgeons, chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, and any other diagnostic or treatment facility.
Despite this, many insurance companies try to deny claims for particular providers or services. That’s why you need a lawyer to aggressively negotiate on your behalf and prove your role in the injured party’s recovery.
Insurance companies are tricky business. To ensure the best chances of getting the compensation you deserve, you need a PIP lawyer used to dealing with complex cases and recovering claim payments.
The team at Snedaker Law has helped hundreds of medical providers increase their settlements and turn denied claims into payouts.
We also enable continuous improvement for your practice. Filing a claim is not a one-and-done project. Instead, our lawyers will take the time to explain any issues that resulted in the denial of the claim. Then we can work with you to improve your process and increase your likelihood of future claim payouts.
As a medical provider, dealing with insurance companies can be tough – but you deserve to be fairly compensated for the work you do to treat car accident patients every single day.
