TAMPA, May 4, 2012 — Today, Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed legislation to reform the state’s no-fault auto insurance, also known as personal injury protection. A new white paper from the Insurance Information Institute and the Florida Insurance Council explains what consumers can expect from the new law.
The reforms are intended to combat fraud associated with staged accidents and address the abuse of PIP coverage, which has led to illegal or improper medical billing practices and increased frequency of lawsuits.
Reporters with questions on PIP may contact:

- Sam Miller, Florida Insurance Council, 850-386-6668, ext. 223, email@example.com
The I.I.I. can also provide interviews and information in Spanish.
