ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Many popular medical and/or lawyer referral services promote the opportunity to collect up to $10,000 for medical or lost wage benefits, but exactly how does that work?
Every insured motorist in Florida is supposed to have PIP (personal injury protection) in the amount of $10,000 which is provided by their own insurance company, not the other persons company.
Now the part that some may not be aware of is that sometimes these "services" rush to get a victim seen by a doctor or chiropractor who immediately puts you on a treatment plan.
Before they know it $10,000 or more in medical expenses has been racked up and then suddenly their treatment stops! The insurance company gets a bill for the treatment and the medical office gets that money leaving the client with nothing unless they bring on an attorney who may or may not be able to successfully sue the other driver (or his insurance company) depending on who was at fault in the accident.
What happens to the lost wage benefit then? Well unfortunately the lost wage benefit is PART of that $10,000! So if you "used it all up" with the doctor or chiropractor there is nothing left to compensate a victim for missed time at work.
