Seeing a Doctor After a Car Accident
Our experienced Florida personal injury lawyers always recommend seeing a doctor after a car accident, even if you haven’t sustained major injuries.
Should I go to the doctor after my Florida car accident?
It’s always advisable to go to the doctor’s office and get checked out by a licensed physician if you’ve been involved in a car accident here in the state of Florida. People that have been in a serious car accident are not going to need to be prompted to go to the doctor; they are going to go to the hospital or go seek emergency treatment. People, however, that might have been involved in a less significant accident might avoid going to the doctor because they think that they’re okay or that the passage of time might heal them. In Florida, it’s very important to go to a doctor as soon as possible, however, because there’s a 14-day rule, according to our no-fault law. This law states if you don’t go to the doctor within 14 days of your crash, then you won’t be able to open up your PIP benefits and have that available to you to pay your medical bills.
