A group of chiropractors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists have filed the first of numerous anticipated lawsuits over Florida's recently overhauled personal injury protection (PIP) law. Nearly eight months after the PIP law passed, auto insurers have not yet reduced any premiums. In fact, State Farm recently proposed increasing the PIP portion of its insurance by 22 percent, but it is willing to settle for a mere 7.9 percent increase.
Gregory Perenich, a partner at PERENICH The Law Firm, and his associate, Jowita Wysocka, have been invited to speak at an upcoming Clearwater Bar Association lunch seminar hosted by the Civil Practice Section. The one-hour seminar is titled "Highlights of the New PIP Law" and will begin at 12:00 noon on Thursday, September 20, 2012 at the Clearwater Grand Hotel, 20967 US Hwy 19 N, Clearwater, Florida.
The PIP Reform Bill of 2012, held out by the governor and the majority of legislators as the bill to end all car accident fraud and to lower automobile insurance premiums for Florida drivers, represents nothing more than a ruse fueled by political corruption and corporate greed.
