According to recent changes to Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law, you now only have two weeks to seek treatment after a car accident. If you don’t seek treatment with a healthcare provider in these two weeks, your care will not be covered by car insurance. (Health insurance does not cover injuries from a car accident.) It’s important to seek care even if you don’t show signs of an external injury because many times injuries can be internal.

Too often people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury.Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.
Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent.Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don’t assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain. Contact us today!
