At the DeWitt Law Firm, we know there are few things more devastating than being hurt in an accident. Many times the shock of a traumatic event resulting in injury can leave you reeling and feeling helpless. The severity of your injuries may not always be immediately apparent; therefore, it is always a good idea to seek medical assistance immediately.
Unfortunately, many injury-causing accidents are the result of negligence on the part of a third party. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries due to the fault of some other person or entity in Florida, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering. Sometimes the circumstances may dictate more than one person should be held accountable for the injuries suffered. It is important to protect your rights and determine if you may be eligible for a monetary recovery. When you contact our firm, one of our personal injury attorneys will speak with you directly concerning the facts and circumstances surrounding your case to provide you with guidance and advice to best protect your rights and ensure a full recovery.

Prioritize Medical Treatment After Your Injury
After you have been involved in an accident, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Florida Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage requires that you receive initial treatment from a physician, nurse practitioner, or clinic within 14 days from the date of your accident. Unless you have received critical or serious injuries that require emergency treatment, your natural instinct is probably to make an appointment with your family physician. Unfortunately, most primary care physicians will not see patients if it is for treatment related to injuries from an automobile accident, even if you have been a longstanding patient with their practice.
Primary care physicians typically won’t see auto accident victims because
Most primary care physicians are not accustomed to treating auto accident injuries. Your primary care physician handles a lot of illnesses and injuries every day, but probably not the kind of injuries sustained in car accidents. Whiplash, bulging discs, and soft tissue injuries require proper diagnosis, care, and documentation. It’s crucial to get the proper diagnosis and treatment of your injuries from someone who is specifically qualified to do so.
Some doctors cannot properly bill for the visit. When you are injured in a car accident your medical treatment is covered by your insurance policy’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. PIP billing can be complicated, which means many primary care physician offices often choose not to see patients who will be covered by PIP. In addition to the fact that accident injuries may not be their primary area of focus, it makes sense to seek treatment from a car accident specialist.
Will an insurance company follow me after an accident?
An insurance company could hire a private investigator to follow you, if they believe that you are exaggerating your injuries or not being truthful about your injuries. If you are caught on camera playing sports or engaging in activities that negate your claim, the video could be admissible in court and may significantly hurt your case. The best policy is to always be open and honest with both your doctors and your accident lawyer regarding your injuries and your treatment. It is important to not over exaggerate or under exaggerate your injuries. If you have any pain or discomfort, you must convey that information to the doctor. As long as you are being honest with your doctor and accident attorney, you should have nothing to worry about. However, you never want to be in a situation where the defense attorney is able to impeach your credibility by showing a video of you doing an activity that you previously testified you were unable to perform because of your injuries. When it comes to any injury or accident case, honesty is always the best policy.
