Q: Why is my insurance company paying?
I was a passenger in an Uber accident. My attorney is harassing me for my insurance information so they can cover my medical bills.. I was a passenger, not a driver. This wasn't my fault. Why is my insurance company paying? Doesn't Uber have a 1,000,000 insurance policy?
A: If you are a FL resident and own a vehicle then the first $10,000 in medical is paid by PIP which is under your personal policy. It’s no fault insurance. I encourage you to speak to your attorney.
Drew Bruner agrees with this answer
A: In Florida, your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is your mandatory health insurance for auto-related injuries. It is also known as the No-Fault law. So, in any accident in which you are a driver or passenger, your own PIP pays your medical bills (80% of reimbursement rate) up to $10,000.00.
