Deltona Car Accident Attorneys
Injury Accidents in Volusia County on the Rise
As the most populous city in Volusia County, Deltona offers the advantages of city living but still retains its welcoming small town feel. As Volusia County grows in population, retaining this feel as well as the safety and security of the area is important.
Unfortunately, we’re experiencing a rapid increase in car accidents. In the past year alone, injury accidents increased by more than 10% in Volusia County. There were 4,409 injury car accidents and 6,484 injuries in just one year (Florida Integrated Report Exchange System). Knowing this, it could be useful to be aware of what you should do if you are injured in a car accident.
What You Should Do Following an Injury Accident
What you do following an injury accident could make a difference in your future quality of life. Even if you’re feeling okay, you should see a doctor. For insurance purposes, you also need to keep track of your treatment expenses and file a claim with your insurance company. If you have any concerns about your insurance policy, getting help from an experienced Deltona car accident attorney is important.
As mentioned already, when you’ve been hurt in a car accident, you need to be seen by a doctor to make sure you get the treatment you need and don’t have hidden injuries. Symptoms can occur later if you are not treated right after the accident. Also important is the fact that your Florida PIP insurance only covers treatment for an injury that is initially treated by a doctor or other healthcare professional within 14 days of the accident.
While being treated for your injuries, it is important to keep track of all of your medical care. If you can, having someone take pictures of your injuries is a good idea. In addition, maintain a written log of your doctor visits and save all receipts for medications and other medical expenses. Also, remember to keep a record of the expenses involved in getting to and from medical appointments, and save all written communications with healthcare professionals.
These records are important for insurance purposes and getting reimbursed fairly for your expenses. Florida PIP (personal injury protection) will pay $2,500 if you are treated within 14 days of your accident and do not have an “emergency medical condition” or 80% of your medical bills up to $10,000 if you do have an “emergency medical condition” and are treated within 14 days of your accident. PIP will also pay 60% of any wages you lose due to the accident up to $10,000.
Many times PIP payments are not sufficient to pay for all of the medical treatment you require. You might not be sure you have an emergency medical condition, or your pain and suffering far outweighs what insurance companies have offered you. If you are experiencing one of these issues or if you have another type of problem with insurance coverage, you should get advice from an experienced Deltona car accident attorney.
