Frequently, we are asked, “What is Florida No-Fault?” Basically, Florida has a law called “No-Fault,” which applies to automobile accidents. It is also referred to as Personal Injury Protection or “PIP.” By law, every driver in Florida is required to carry PIP benefits as part of one’s automobile insurance coverage. Therefore, when someone is in an automobile accident, he or she is covered by their own insurance company that provides Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits, regardless of who is “at fault” in the accident; hence, the name “No-Fault.” PIP benefits protect drivers and passengers with coverage in the amount of $10,000, as long as you seek medical treatment within the first fourteen days following the accident. PIP coverage pays medical expenses as well as certain non-medical-related costs associated with the accident, such as lost wages, prescriptions, mileage and the costs of hiring someone to do household chores.
You may also be entitled to recover your non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, as long as you were not at fault in the accident, from the at-fault driver's insurance company and your injury meets the threshold. In Florida, that threshold is: (a) permanent injury, (b) significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function, (c) significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement, or (d) death.
