If you are involved in a Car Accident in Coral Springs FL, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days in order to receive your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits from your insurance provider. Florida Statute 627.736 states eighty percent of certain medical benefits will be reimbursed “if the individual receives initial services and care within 14 days after the motor vehicle accident.”

Those involved in an accident may not feel pain right away or think that the pain they are feeling will diminish over time. It is very important to not take any chances because if you wait to seek medical treatment longer than 14 days, you will not be covered by the PIP benefits under your insurance policy.
