How To Deal With Your Insurance Company After A Car Accident

Insurance companies would often try to limit your claim and it is therefore, important to work with an attorney who regularly deals with insurance adjusters. Our experienced car accident lawyer will guide you in your dealings with the insurance company and work hard to ensure that you are paid the maximum compensation you deserve.

Under Florida Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law, you must get a qualified medical professional to categorize your auto injury as an Emergency Medical Condition (EMC), within 14 days of the crash, otherwise you lose most of your PIP coverage that you paid premiums to your insurance carrier. If you wait to see a doctor more than 14 days after the crash, your PIP coverage is reduced from $10,000 available for your medical bills to $ 2,500. Some policies have additional medical coverage. If you bring us your car insurance papers, we will be happy to explain how your policy works and what to expect.

In fact, if you contact us before you have an accident we can explain your coverages to you, so you can be certain you have adequate coverage. Believe us when we say many people do not fully understand their auto insurance coverage.
