Hi I’m Robert Scott and this is Clint Wallace, we’re personal injury lawyers with Scott and Wallace, here to answer a viewer question. Clint, Sean from Tallahassee asked, “I was injured in a car accident but I don’t have any health insurance. What can I do?”

Personal INjury Protection PIP Coverage… Sean, this is a question we get from many of our car accident clients. Many Floridians aren’t aware of personal injury protection commonly called PIP coverage. PIP pays for 80% of the first 10000 dollars of your medical bills if you’re involved in a car accident. Even if you don’t have car insurance you might be entitled to PIP benefits. For instance, if you do not own a car, you may be entitled to use the at-fault driver’s PIP benefit. Likewise, if you’re a pedestrian or bicyclist that’s hit by a car you may be entitled to use the driver’s PIP benefits. As always, if you’ve been injured in a car accident give us a call at (850) 222-7777 and Robert and I will discuss your options.

Sean, that’s your verdict
