Florida Residents Have Just 15 Days to Seek Medical Attention for Auto Accident Injury

Written By Family Chiropractic Center on April 26, 2021

Auto Accident TreatmentFlorida has the 15-day rule stating that you can’t file a PIP insurance claim after that timeframe is up. Come day 16, you’re on your own. The rule exists to 1) get people to seek medical attention as soon as possible, and 2) make it clear that injuries are actually related to the accident. 

Considering the fact that it can take months for injuries to manifest, 15 days is not a lot of time. We at Family Chiropractic Center in Coral Springs want to help protect your benefits, save you money, prevent physical pain, and shield you from insurance nightmares.

Small Injuries Can Create Chronic Lifelong Problems

Our documentation will be critical should you need to take legal action. Approximately two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents develop symptoms of whiplash. The symptoms usually do not develop until two to 48 hours after the injury. Data shows that 45-85% of whiplash victims suffer symptoms even five years later, most of them due to the loss of integrity in the spine due to the accident. 

Adrenaline may mask  immediate pain after an auto accident.  We can examine you and document injuries even before you become aware of them.

The other biggie is concussions. Automobile accidents are the third leading cause of concussion-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths in the U.S. It is possible for a person to suffer a concussion during a car accident and to not even realize it for days, or even weeks. Studies show that one minor concussion can lead to long-term problems, including chronic headaches, memory loss, and vertigo.

At Family Chiropractic Center, we care for you without having to resort to prescription drugs or surgery. Instead of masking the symptoms, we get to the cause. A car accident throws your body out of whack. We use the lastest techniques to put you on the path to healing.
