When you recover from the initial shock of being involved in an automobile accident, several questions immediately come to mind:
- Who will pay my medical bills?
- What happens if I am unable to work?
- What if I need special medical attention?
- How will I support my family?
- Can I be compensated for my injuries and pain and suffering?
Being involved in a serious accident can be traumatic, both physically and psychologically. If your injuries are severe and require long term treatment, your immediate concerns may revolve around how you can support yourself and your family.
Florida is a no-fault state. This means that your own insurance company is required to cover your initial medical bills (a minimum of $10,000) regardless of who was at fault for the accident. All drivers in Florida are required to carry PIP (personal injury protection) with a minimum coverage of $10,000 per person for each crash.
However, you may be entitled to recover for your injuries above the $10,000 paid by your own insurance company. You can pursue a personal injury claim if you suffered serious injuries in a car accident.
It is imperative to see a doctor immediately following an accident. Failure to receive medical treatment within 14 days of the accident can bar your claim.
