Defending Insurers in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Claims
Taylor, Day, Grimm & Boyd has a vast experience of defending insurers in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Medical Payments (MPC) coverage claims. Our highly respected team of attorneys are known for their ability to deliver strategic and aggressive representation to nationwide automobile insurance companies involved in PIP litigation. Our lawyers combine deep legal knowledge with an extensive understanding of the insurance industry to help clients successfully resolve PIP and MPC claims in the quickest and most economical manner possible.
PIP claims are generally brought by medical providers via an Assignment of Benefits from the insured individual. These cases typically involve a dispute over the medical necessity of the treatment, the relatedness of the treatment to the accident or the reasonableness of the medical bills. We handle coverage disputes and assist our clients in interpreting policies and the application of Florida Statute Section 627.736.
Investigating PIP Claims
At Taylor Day Law, we pride ourselves on being attentive to the needs of our clients and partnering with them at every stage of the claims process. We undertake a diligent and thorough pre-suit discovery and fact investigation, keeping our clients fully apprised of our findings throughout the course of our investigation. Our attorneys gather and evaluate all of the evidence in the case and perform examinations under oath (EOU) of claimants and witnesses. We also scrupulously analyze PIP cases to uncover potential insurance fraud or misrepresentation on the part of the insured. Our lawyers are well aware that PIP claims may involve fraudulent claims and misrepresentations, and we work with our clients to identify and address suspicious automobile accident cases.
While our firm works to negotiate and resolve PIP claims outside of the courtroom, we aggressively litigate claims at the trial and appellate levels when a settlement is unachievable. Our attorneys are well-known and respected by judges and lawyers throughout the legal community, and we are proud of our accomplished litigators who know how to build and present a case before a judge or jury. The lawyers in our practice work closely with our insurer clients throughout the course of all proceedings to develop powerful litigation strategies. We understand the difficult challenges that insurers face in connection with PIP claims and work with our clients to bring these cases to a successful conclusion.
