Hello and welcome to my 2020 update about car accident law. Here in Florida, the biggest issue right now is in Tallahassee, Florida. It has to do with the repeal of the PIP system. Currently, under Florida law, every motorist is required to have a PIP or no-fault insurance that pays up to $10,000 of your medical bills and lost wages after an accident. Our drivers here in Florida are spending hundreds of dollars a year for PIP insurance where their maximum benefit is $10,000 minus any deductible. It’s just not a good system and so over the past few years, there have been multiple attempts to repeal the PIP system and replace it with something else.

How quickly should you get a lawyer after a car accident? Now this question is often asked by our clients, uh, we understand that there are many people out there that have questions after a car accident and they, they basically, they’re undergoing the stress of the accident and the injuries from the car accident and they think to themselves, well, I’m not really sure when I should get a lawyer involved. And so the purpose of this video is to provide some type of guidance from an, uh, basically an expert opinion about car accidents and someone who is handling this day in and day out. So my advice is basically this, the first week after a car accident is always the most important. You’ve got insurance companies contacting you, you’ve got a pain, uh, you’ve got damage to your car, you’ve got everything going on, you get the stress of the accident, all these issues in your life that are unexpected and you really don’t know what to do or where to go.
