What Does My PIP Insurance Cover?
By: Jeffrey R. Nuckols, Esq.
You live in Florida and have PIP auto insurance, but you might ask, “What does my PIP cover?” You might be surprised to learn who is among those covered by PIP in Florida pursuant to the 2014 Florida Statutes. Or maybe you might be surprised to learn of a particular category of persons not covered. Read on.
“Your Community Your Attorneys”
By: Aisha White, Esq.
DKN is always looking for ways to give back to the community that has given us so much. When the firm was established the first thought was that our families are parts of the community and our law firm needs to be a part of the community. Being a part of the community means so much more than an address. It means assisting your neighbors by simply giving back.
In November DKN Legal had the honor of partnering with Concord Management’s charitable “New Moves” program. We provided a Thanksgiving basket complete with the turkey and all the fixings to a wonderful local family with 6 children. We loved meeting this wonderful family, and we are so happy to be able to make a direct impact on the lives of those in our community.

I know it sounds like we sell insurance sometimes but we just want to make sure you are covered if you are ever involved in an accident. Most new clients are surprised when I sit down and explain their policy and how their coverage provides benefits to them.
It is all too easy to go online and click on a few boxes to select your insurance. You click a box and your monthly payment goes up so you deselect the box to make the amount go down. Purchasing insurance this way is easy but probably not the best as there is not an agent there to explain what coverage you should purchase for the way you live. Most motorcycle owners do not know their their stacked uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance may cover them if they are struck by an automobile.
Most are even more surprised when they find out that the at-fault driver does not have bodily injury insurance and they are now forced to pay for their own medical bills above what PIP does not cover because they did not purchase UM insurance.
Before deselecting or choosing not to click on the box call my office to discuss what coverage you need to protect you and your family or call your insurance agent and ask them to fully explain what the various types of insurance are and how they protect you.

Everyday we hear about someone famous and the internal family fights after the person has passed. Most recently Casey Kasem and the fight between his children and his second wife. Then, Phillip Seymor Hoffman and the fact that he did not want his children to become trust fund babies.

How may one protect one’s right to be a parent to a child born to a same sex couple? In Florida, it appears that parental rights might be difficult or impossible to assert for one partner of a same sex couple.
We all have heard someone state that they have full coverage when asked about their automobile insurance policy. What exactly is full coverage? I can honestly say I have no idea. I know what coverage my clients need to protect themselves.

So you made it through a dissolution of marriage a few years back including filing a financial affidavit and maybe even the Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Rule 12.285 mandatory disclosure. Well, at least at the time of your dissolution there were probably few if any aspects of your financial affairs that your then-spouse didn’t already know about.
A week or so ago you might have read or heard about a family in California who had a dispute with their live-in nanny. For example, look here. Regardless of who’s right and who’s wrong in that case, what might be a homeowner’s worst fear arose in the case when the nanny refused to move out of the home.
In the past and for the most part today insurance companies will evaluate your property damage claim fairly after an auto accident. In a prior article I discussed who should pay for your property damage claim.
