Desantis Vetoes PIP repeal

No-Fault Remains the Law of the Land in Florida for now… Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce Accident victims must still carry $10,000 in PIP Coverage

On June 30th 2021, Florida Governor Ron Desantis vetoed legislation that would have ended Florida’s no-fault rule (also known as PIP) after pressure from critics who argued the bill would increase insurance rates for Florida drivers. Florida’s no-fault system was established Florida in 1979, and requires all vehicle owners to carry $10,000 in PIP coverage. Florida’s Insurance Commissioner said he was “hesitant” to support the repeal.

Below Fort Pierce / Port St. Lucie Personal Injury Attorney Todd Passman gives a few pointers about PIP insurance:

When an injury or accident requires that the “fine print” of an insurance policy like PIP be reviewed to determine whether there is coverage, the insurance aspects of a claim can become complex.
