Even the most minor car accidents can lead to severe and debilitating injuries that, if left untreated, can cause pain, discomfort, and disability for years to come. Thankfully, in the state of Florida, we are fortunate enough to have our car insurance cover any healthcare costs associated with car accidents we are involved in, up to as much as $10,000. If you've been involved in a car accident, we always recommend that you are evaluated by a physician. Here are some of the reasons why early evaluation and treatment are so important:
1. In order to be eligible for coverage by your car insurance, you must seek treatment within 30 days of your accident. Otherwise, you will have to pay for any treatment you receive as a result of the accident out of pocket or through your health insurance.
2. Pain from injuries sustained in an accident is not always felt immediately. Sometimes it can take several weeks for pain to set in. The sooner after an injury treatment is sought, the more likely the injuries will heal, making it less likely for your pain to become chronic.
If you've been injured in a car accident, we are here to help. Our treatments are personalized and customized to meet your unique needs. You can trust that we will do everything in our power to make sure that your healing process is swift and as pain free as possible.
If you have questions about how you should proceed, please don't hesitate to contact our office. We will be more than happy to guide you in the right direction.
