Should I go to the doctor after my Florida car accident? | Pincus & Currier | Trial Lawyers | https://www.pincusandcurrier.com/ | 561.868.1340 | 324 North Lakeside Court, West Palm Beach, Florida 33407 | William H. Pincus | Romin N. Currier | Steven B. Phillips | Melanie L. Campbell | Raymond E. Kramer, III
If you’ve been involved in an accident and you’re injured, you definitely should go see a doctor as soon as possible. It’s very important in Florida because if you don’t go within 14 days of the accident, you don’t get the full benefit of your PIP insurance benefits under the policy. Additionally, the longer you wait, the more likely it is that the insurance company’s going to say that your injuries were not caused by the accident but for some other reason.
How will a prior existing injury affect my Florida car accident claim? | Pincus & Currier | Trial Lawyers | https://www.pincusandcurrier.com/ | 561.868.1340 | 324 North Lakeside Court, West Palm Beach, Florida 33407 | William H. Pincus | Romin N. Currier | Steven B. Phillips | Melanie L. Campbell | Raymond E. Kramer, III
Your prior injuries are very important to an injury claim because that can either make or break your claim. If you don’t divulge those injuries to your doctor and they write in the records that you didn’t have a prior injury, the insurance company is gonna find that prior injury eventually and they’re gonna either say that everything you have is pre-existing or you’re trying to hide something. So you want to make sure that you tell your doctor about the injuries, you want to consult with an attorney to talk about the prior injuries, and you’ll learn how to handle that with the doctors and the insurance company as you proceed forward from a new injury.

You have the legal rights in Florida following an automobile accident to recover damages. Economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages would be lost wages, medical bills. Non-economic damages would be pain and suffering, inconvenience, loss of the enjoyment of life. All those damages would be asserted against an at fault party.
My physician determined that my injuries from my Florida car accident are permanent. How can I protect my future? | Oldham & Smith | Gregory P. Smith | https://oldhamsmith.com/ | 1(800) 887-5895 | 321 N Barrow Ave, Tavares, Florida 32778
If you have been deemed to have permanent injuries as a result of a motor vehicle, it’s imperative that you protect your rights going forward. If, in fact, the doctor has deemed the injury permanent, under Florida No Fault Law, you would have a right to make a claim against the at fault party for future medical benefits.
If I miss work as a result of a Florida car accident, can my lost wages be recovered? | William W. “Ty” Tison, III | The Tison Law Group, P.A. | Contact Us | 813-739-1776 | www.TisonLawGroup.com | 9312 N.

Yes, there is a possibility that you could obtain a portion or a percentage of your lost wages through a contractual provision in your own auto policy. But in addition to that, you can also seek lost wages and maybe even future lost wages or reduced earning capacity as a part of your actual claim of damages in a personal injury lawsuit that you might bring.
What is the first thing I should do after a Florida car accident? | Emerson | Straw | Injury Law | http://www.emersonstraw.com/ | Matthew Emerson | Wesley Straw | (877) 428-4177 | 1101 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33701
The first thing you should do in Florida after a car accident is take stock of yourself medically, which would be either call 911, maybe call your primary care physician. You also may have responsibilities to contact your insurance carrier when you’re medically able to do so. After that, I think it’s important that you contact an attorney. There could be time considerations with respect to when and where you seek medical treatment that could impact your ability to fully recover under yours or the at fault driver’s insurance policy.
Should I go to the doctor after my Florida car accident? | The Law Office of Brian R. Toung, P.A. | Brian Toung | https://www.briantoung.com/ | (386) 492-0022 | 947 Beville Rd., Suite 14 , South Daytona, Florida 32119
In Florida you have what is called personal injury protection benefits, which pays your medical bills 80%, and if you have medical payments coverage, it’ll pay 20% the deductible. You should definitely go to the doctor within two weeks of the accident, or that coverage will be reduced by 75%.
How long does it take to settle a Florida auto accident case? | Emerson | Straw | Injury Law | http://www.emersonstraw.com/ | Matthew Emerson | Wesley Straw | (877) 428-4177 | 1101 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33701
Auto accident cases can vary depending on the severity of the crash and the severity of your injuries. In cases in which you’re fortunate, and you don’t sustain significant permanent injuries, they can be settled at a much quicker passage of time than if you’re in a significant motor vehicle accident and suffer very grave injuries that require surgery and rehabilitation going forward. Those types of cases take longer to resolve, because we have to know the full extent of your injuries before a settlement offer can be made to an insurance company.
Can I receive money even if the Florida car accident was my fault? | Emerson | Straw | Injury Law | http://www.emersonstraw.com/ | Matthew Emerson | Wesley Straw | (877) 428-4177 | 1101 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33701
In Florida, if you bear some but not all of the fault for causing an automobile accident, you may very well be able to recover under your automobile insurance policy. I strongly recommend that in every auto accident situation you contact an attorney who can assess the accident report, the mechanism of how the accident happened, and tell you and give you an informed legal opinion about whether you do bear all of the fault for your accident.
If I miss work as a result of a Florida car accident, can my lost wages be recovered? | Franco Law Group P.A. | Christine Franco | Megan Williams | https://www.franco-law.com/ | (813) 873-0180 | 215 N Howard Avenue, Suite 101, Tampa, Florida 33606
If you miss time from work due to a Florida car accident, and you’re injured from that car accident, the answer is yes. If you have PIP benefits, which most people do and are required to have under the law if they own a vehicle, that’s personal injury protection benefits, they will pay up to $10,000 of medical bills and lost wages. The lost wages are paid at 60% of your average weekly wage, which is calculated over a 13 week period prior to your accident.
Additionally, if those benefits, those PIP benefits, are used in medical, and you still have lost wages, you can recover your lost wages at the end of the case, from the defendant driver, in pursuing a claim against their insurance company.
If I get injured in a Florida auto accident, but do not have insurance, can I still sue and recover for my injuries? | Franco Law Group P.A. | Christine Franco | Megan Williams | https://www.franco-law.com/ | (813) 873-0180 | 215 N Howard Avenue, Suite 101, Tampa, Florida 33606
If you are injured as a result of a Florida car accident, and you don’t have insurance of your own, you could still recover in a number of ways. Number one, if you were a passenger in a vehicle, you would be eligible for benefits under their PIP policy, or Personal Injury Protection. If you were driving a vehicle without the proper insurance, then you would not be eligible for the PIP benefits. However, if the other driver is at fault for the accident, you can still file a claim against their insurance for your medical and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
