Bradenton Car Accident Attorneys
Injury Accidents in Manatee County
While the number of car injury crashes in Manatee County decreased slightly last year, the number of people injured in automobile accidents actually increased. In fact, in 2017, there were 2,778 accidents involving injuries and a total of 4,612 (Florida Integrated Report Exchange System).
With numbers like this, we may well wonder what we would do if we were injured in a car accident. Would we get the care we needed? Would we be able to pay our medical bills and cover our lost wages? How would our family handle the situation?
Many people face questions like this every day. Fortunately for them, there are people to turn to for help. Experienced car accident attorneys understand the anxiety of not knowing what to do following an accident and want to help them through this difficult time.
Florida Automobile Insurance and Accident Claims
If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Bradenton or the surrounding area in Manatee, you may need ongoing medical treatments to help you recover and reduce your pain. You may also need guidance from an experienced Bradenton car accident attorney to navigate insurance procedures and make sure you get compensated fairly.
Usually your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance will give you only $2,500 for medical treatment for an automobile accident injury and only if you are treated within 14 days of the accident. If, however, you have what’s considered an “emergency medical condition,” PIP will pay 80% of your medical expenses up to $10,000, as long as you were initially treated within 14 days of the accident, and 60% of any wages lost due to the accident up to $10,000.
If your medical treatment ends up costing more than $2,500 for a non-emergency medical condition or $10,000 for an emergency medical condition, your health insurance is supposed to help you pay the rest. But what if you need ongoing treatment that your health plan won’t cover? What if down the road you develop a problem related to the injury and need additional treatment? Can you sue the driver who cause the accident?

Florida Auto Insurance and Accident Claims
Under Florida law, if you or a family member has been seriously injured in a car accident and the other driver caused the accident, you may be able to file a car accident claim in court. Claims can be made against at fault drivers if you or your family members have sustained significant or permanent loss of a major bodily function, disfigurement or significant scarring, some types of permanent injury, or they died as a result of the car crash.
Sometimes, the extent or permanence of your injuries cannot be readily determined. If this is the case, you may still be able to sue for damages. If you are wondering whether the injuries you and/or your family members have sustained because of another driver’s negligence are serious enough to sue, be sure to talk with an experienced car accident attorney at Davila Law Group. We will help you decide on the best steps to take to get compensated for your injuries.
