FL PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION (PIP) LATEST
November 29th 2013
promised, here is the latest update to let you know where we stand and
what we need to fight to
protect FL LMTs, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors
Monday, November 25th the 1st District Court of Appeal issued
a “DENIED” order to attorneys’ Luke Lirot and Adam Levine’s Motion for
Rehearing. Does this mean we are done with it all? No, not on your life!
This is just part of the legal process and is expected.
Attorney’s Luke Lirot and Adam Levine are not giving up, not taking no for an answer and not leaving a stone unturned,
not when they know they are right! They are currently going over all
the options they are already been prepared for, one of them being that
they take this fight to the Supreme Court. We will keep you posted.
You know the old saying, “stand for something or you will fall for anything.”
This is what FL Legislators count on. We are hoping you are still willing, ready and standing up to fight this fight with us!
All of the current hullabaloo has only been over the right to keep the first Judge’s “temporary injunction” in place. This was not the entire case as originally presented.
Most recently the 1st DCA 3 Judges didn't
agree with Judge Lewis so they reversed the injunction. Now, insurance
companies are not required, by the temporary injunction, to reimburse
claims for massage or acupuncture, they are not required by injunction
to pay beyond $2,500 if a case is not determined to be an emergency
medical condition (EMC), but hey, most did not regularly follow the
injunctive order in the first place with the exception of State Farm. PLEASE READ ON!
The players have stated that this game is not over!
Constitutional Rights are being violated!
A provider’s right to work, a provider’s right to be equally compensated
An auto- injured patient’s choice of providers and services are excluded
Massage Therapy and Acupuncture Services-excluded no matter who provides it
The right to see a doctor when you’re feeling pain or discomfort, not in a 14 day limited time- frame arbitrarily set by legislators, whether or not you are feeling pain. See a medical doctor in 14 days or you get NOTHING for the No-Fault premiums you paid
Many more rights have been stomped on by FL Legislators in this PIP ordeal.
Will you stand by and let them continue to destroy us or will you help?
It’s for these reasons, we are not quitting!!
don't let those you know, love or treat for injuries down when they
need you most! Be there for them, show them the way. If they are hurt by this new FL PIP Law, please put them in touch with Attorneys Luke Lirot and/or Adam Levine. (Link for contacts below).
I want to share a portion of a poem (you may have heard before)
that I’ve used as my own personal guide all my life and hope you will
hang on a few of the words for your own life & for us as we fight for
your rights in this pursuit.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And you can never tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
