When the insurance company denies your benefits, Florida PIP Statute § 627.736 allows you to recover your services with no attorney fees or costs. You pay absolutely nothing. We have the experience and knowledge in navigating through the necessary steps to take when the insurance companies unjustly try to deny or reduce patients’ PIP benefits that are covered under Florida PIP laws.
If you are a medical provider who has accepted an assignment of your patient’s benefits and have had any or all portions of your benefits denied or reduced, please contact us today for a free consultation regarding your rights under the insurance contract. The automobile insurance companies have qualified lawyers working for them, and so should you.
There are no shortage of PIP attorneys and PIP firms out there that keep a percentage of whatever PIP benefits they secure for their clients for themselves. At the Law Offices by Lyle B. Masnikoff & Associates, P.A., we find this to be offensive. We feel that since your clinic performed medical services on your patient, then your clinic is entitled to all the PIP benefits we are able to secure for you. Since we are attorneys and not health care professionals that assisted in the medical services rendered, we simply can not fathom how we would be entitled to keep any percentage of any amount of PIP benefits that we get you. We realize that you can contract for just about anything, but we can not in sound mind ask for a percentage of the PIP benefits that your clinic worked for.
Florida Statute Section 627.736(8) and 627.428 apply to PIP claims, and makes it so the insurance companies have to pay for our legal fees and costs. So when we win a PIP suit filed on your behalf, or settle the case with your authorization, we collect our attorney’s fees and costs directly from the insurance companies and never from your clinic. That is how we receive compensation for the work that we do for you. To ask to also receive compensation for the work that you and your clinic do on top of that is tantamount to a “tax” that we do not believe in. So if the Law Offices of LyleB. Masnikoff & Associates, P.A secure you $10,000.00 plus interest in a PIP suit, you will be getting the full $10,000.00 plus interest, and not a penny less.
We have attended thousands of depositions, mediations, arbitrations, hearings, and trials. Let us help you today.
