PIP Fraud

According to this report from the Sun Sentinel, Florida now leads the nation in fake or staged accidents. Being the best at something is usually something to brag about, but in this case these fraudulent actions are driving up the cost of Automotive insurance for each and every policyholder in this state. I read in another write up that the cost of such claims is adding over $80 to each and every policy sold. State lawmakers are currently looking at reviewing the PIP laws and perhaps some changes might be pending, but until then it up to all of us to report fraudulent activity and additionally to be ever aware when driving to avoid becoming caught up in such staged accidents. Giving that little bit of extra room to the driver ahead of you might just save your day, and you wallet from the impact of rising rates.
