Welcome to Just Answer! My name is***** give me a few minutes to review your inquiry. Thank you for your patience.
There must be some type of misunderstanding. Florida drivers are required to carry a minimum insurance of $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) benefits to pay for medical expenses and lost wages. If you medical bills were $400.00 then those should be covered by your PIP insurance and you should not be having to pay out anything. You may have signed a fee agreement with the lawyer's office that is causing the $2,200.00 loss.
