You’re in luck, we accept all Auto Insurance medical benefits!
If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries (aka hyperflexion-hyperextension disorder) need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are.
Auto injuries are very common. 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. At Florida Injury & Wellness Center located in Wesley Chapel, we have all the tools to get you properly diagnosed and on your way to recovery. Contact us today.
What Will my Treatment Cost?
Initially, zero. We provide a free consultation to anyone who has been in a car accident, will accept all car insurance plans, and are able to defer all fees until after treatment is finalized.
Florida personal injury laws require everyone to have coverage of at least $10,000 for bodily injury and $10,000 for car damages. Many people have a $1,000 deductible, and most have a 20% copay as part of their insurance plan. Auto accidents are a complicated affair; between dealing with your own insurance company, the other parties involved, and sometimes the other person’s insurance it is easy to become overwhelmed. Making sure that all documents are filed and recorded correctly is not easy and most patients elect to have an attorney aid them in getting reimbursed for the damages to their vehicle, monies to cover future health costs due to your accident, and protecting yourself from potential liability claims from the other parties. We are able to defer all costs until after the attorney has settled your case with the insurance company or other parties. This means that for most people there are no upfront costs for treatment and the fees you are responsible for can be negotiated through your attorney.
Should I go to a Lawyer?
Although no attorney is required for you to receive treatment, most patients find it necessary to get help dealing with their insurance company or other party. At Florida Injury & Wellness Center we routinely work with as variety of legal offices to ensure you receive the care you need to get back to wellness.
