If You've Been Injured - The Clock is Ticking
Car accidents can change your life in a matter of seconds. Neck and back injury are the most common complaints that have entitled thousands to substantial money settlements. As our doctor and attorney, Walter Ward, explains, the forces on the neck and low back are magnified as a result of the collision to levels that most people – especially those beyond their 20’s – will have difficulty experiencing. For most, the care received at hospital emergency departments is simply inadequate. Emergency departments are good places to diagnose a broken bone or active bleeding in the brain. However, the diagnostic tests performed by most emergency departments are limited to ruling out life-threatening injury so you can be discharged home. However, there are other tests such as MRIs which are the gold standard to evaluate damage to the spine – which are generally NOT performed during an emergency department visit.
Timing is everything. Under Florida Law if YOU were involved in a motor vehicle accident YOU have ONLY 14 days to seek medical evaluation. If you are NOT seen in a hospital or doctor’s office within this timeframe, YOU LOSE ALL MEDICAL BENEFITS under your Personal Injury Protection car insurance policy. Your PIP can provide YOU with up to $10,000 in benefits NO matter who was at fault. We can help you take advantage of this important insurance coverage that YOU paid for before it is too late.
Applying the combined power of law and medicine for each client, we can ensure Nothing is missed. The only way to document all your injuries and to receive the best medical treatment is for YOU to be seen by a medical specialist that is familiar with the various types of closed head, neck, back, shoulder and nerve injuries that are commonplace in vehicle trauma cases.
