Disability Benefits and Lost Wages When You’ve Been Injured in a Car Accident
One of the questions people ask when they’ve been injured in a car accident is if PIP covers lost wages. PIP covers reimbursements of lost wages of up to 60 percent of any gross income PLUS loss of earning capacity. Frequently however, people who have been injured in an motor vehicle accident believe that the insurance company will automatically reimburse them for lost wages. Unfortunately, it is when those claims are disputed that they call our Personal Injury Attorneys in Pasco County to help them get relief and resolution.

Should You Hire an Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney or File Your Own PIP Claims?
Car insurance companies are corporations that are focused on profits. Most people are no match when going up against their lawyers. Once you speak to your car insurance company or provide them with information about your medical treatment or other information, that information or anything you say or do can be used to effect your disability claim and reimbursement. Hiring a personal injury attorney to represent you can be most beneficial to ensure that you do not unwittingly say something that the insurance companies can use against you. It is our job to make sure that the proper documentation is provided to the insurance company which is now required under Florida’s no-fault laws.
