Florida Residents Have 14 Days for Auto Accident Injuries to Be Included in Claims

Written By Heathrow Chiropractic on March 12, 2021

Auto Accident TreatmentFlorida has the 14-day rule stating that you can’t file a PIP insurance claim. After that, 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.

Fourteen days may seem like a lot of time but it’s not. It can take months for injuries to manifest. Getting into Heathrow Chiropractic in Lake Mary can save you money, prevent physical pain, and protect you from an insurance nightmare.

Auto Accident Injuries Can Be Invisible At First

Pain or no pain, get checked out before your fourteen days are up. We can give you red flags to look for that adrenaline may have masked immediately after an auto accident. On top of that, our documentation is critical should you need to take legal action.

The two most common injuries that surprise car accident victims are whiplash and concussion. Even minor whiplash can lead to pinched nerves or a shoulder injury. And as far as concussions go, studies show that even one minor concussion can lead to long-term problems, including chronic headaches, memory problems, and vertigo.

Besides documentation, chiropractors have the added benefit of caring 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; you most likely need an adjustment to restore physiological balance so something like a little limp doesn’t turn into a hip or knee replacement.

The entire chiropractic team is well versed in treating auto injuries--especially Dr. Grocholski, who rerouted his career path after experiencing the power of chiropractic care for an auto injury.

When you come in, we will determine:

  • The extent of the injury or injuries
  • The number of estimated treatments required to treat your injuries
  • If referral to another medical specialist is required
  • If special tests are required (i.e. MRI, CT Scan, etc.)
  • If you need to take "injury time off" from work (and provide you with a note to present to your employer)
