Accident Attorney Stephen M. Fernandez Lectured The Paralegal Association Of Florida On Florida’s Motor Vehicle No-fault Law


On Monday, January 14, 2013, attorney Stephen M. Fernandez presented a lecture to the Suncoast Chapter of the Paralegal Association of Florida on Florida’s motor vehicle PIP/No-Fault law. The presentation focused on recent changes to PIP which greatly restrict medical insurance benefits to people involved in automobile accidents on or after January 1, 2013. Mr. Fernandez covered topics and answered questions on a variety of issues including limitations on the types of treatment now available under PIP, as well as the new “14-day requirement” for receiving any benefits under PIP.

Mr. Fernandez had this to say,”As part of a large personal injury law firm, every day I see the impact the changes to the PIP laws have had on accident victims across the state. It’s important to help other legal professionals understand the challenges the new laws have created for injured accident victims and a a real honor to speak to the Paralegal Association members.”

About The the Paralegal Association of Florida

Paralegal Association of Florida, Inc. (“PAF”), is a professional association of approximately 1,000 paralegals from around the State of Florida. The Association was incorporated in 1976 as Florida Legal Assistants, Inc.; however, in 2000, the name was changed because the term “paralegal” more accurately reflects the substantive nature of our members’ responsibilities in rendering legal services — while under the supervision of an attorney — and clearly distinguishes our profession from other law office support personnel. A 1998 survey sponsored by The Florida Bar concluded that the public perceives “paralegals” to be subject to higher criteria than “legal assistants” and, therefore, have a higher standing in the legal profession. The work we perform for our law firms, corporations, or governmental employers requires a high degree of professionalism, strong ethical standards, and initial and continuing legal education.
