Understanding personal injury protection
Personal injury protection (PIP) is mandatory in Florida and covers any person injured in any accident involving a vehicle, regardless of the fault of the situation, up to $10,000 in lost wages and medical bills. In theory this is helpful, but the reality is that with current medical costs, any serious injury would quickly use up the entire allotment. Additionally, simply getting insurance companies to promptly and fully pay out these funds can be a challenge. With the help of our well-prepared Fort Lauderdale PIP lawyers, these cases can be handled smoothly and promptly.
Protecting individuals and families who have suffered injuries due to inadequate medical care
The goal of any medical procedure or visit is to improve the patient’s health in some way, even if it’s only their knowledge about the realities of their health. When these visits or treatments fail to provide an efficacious result, often no one is at fault. Yet in other cases, the medical professional involved may have failed to perform their duties to the best of their ability, failed to exercise reasonable care, or been careless in a way that resulted in injury, suffering or death.
When a procedure or treatment is done without appropriate consideration or caution, and your family member is the patient, our attorneys will handle your legal matters while you and your family work on healing. If you or a loved one has suffered from medication errors, birth injuries, or other mistakes at the hands of a medical professional, our Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice attorneys are prepared to obtain the compensation you need for all of your injuries.
