Florida Senate sets sights on getting rid of PIP auto insurance
TALLAHASSEE —Florida Senators are full steam ahead with yet another proposal to get rid of the no-fault insurance system, otherwise known as PIP (Personal Injury Protection) for Florida motorists. If successful, this would radically change the way insurance providers, policy holders, and personal injury accident attorneys handle insurance claims for compensation following motor vehicle accidents.
The proposed bill (SB 54) aims to eliminate no-fault insurance and have it replaced by bodily injury coverage (see Insurance Policies for Florida Motorists). However, it must first must be passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee and face a probable lawsuit on behalf of personal injury attorneys that oppose the change.
