In a last minute change, PIP has been added to the agenda for this week’s special session of the Florida Legislature. The law had expired October 1, but Governor Charlie Crist has added the item to the agenda. The law, which took effect in 1971, required drivers to purchase insurance to cover his or her own medical costs regardless of who is at fault in the car accident. Opponents of the no fault law cite fraud and abuse of the system while proponents argue that the lack of such insurance would lead to more lawsuits. A House committee will consider the compromise proposal today.
