Temporary Injunction Entered Against Portions of the New PIP Law

We have previously advised of the new restrictions under the Florida’s new Personal Injury Protection “PIP” law, Chapter 2012-197, Laws of Florida (2012 PIP Act), that went into effect on January 1, 2013.
On March 15, 2013, Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida Circuit Court Judge Terry P. Lewis granted a temporary injunction holding that the 2012 PIP Act violates Article I, Section 21 of the Florida Constitution, the right of people to have access to courts to seek redress for their injuries. Judge Lewis enjoined those sections of the 2012 PIP Act “which require a finding of an ‘Emergency Medical Condition’ as a prerequisite for payment of PIP benefits or that prohibit payments for services provided by acupuncturists, chiropractors, and massage therapists.”
The decision is a positive outcome for those who have been injured in a car accident and Florida consumers.
