MedX Chiropractic & Injury Center Auto Accidents

MedX Chiropractic & Injury Center is committed to helping you get healthy and stay healthy in a holistic manner. Most automobile accident victims may not know the extent of hidden injuries following a crash. If you’re the victim of an auto accident, even a minor fender bender, it’s essential to immediately have your injuries evaluated. Even if you don’t experience any pain, stiffness, or soreness on site of the accident, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are totally in the clear. Unfortunately, whiplash symptoms may not be apparent for days, weeks, or even months following your auto accident. The longer you take to get checked out and have your situation diagnosed and treated, the worse the problem may become. Come see Dr. Lee Perdeck at MedX Chiropractic for any auto accident injuries.

Whiplash

Whiplash is the most common type of injury resulting from an auto accident. Whiplash is caused by sudden head movement, typically as a result of traumatic force. This results in muscles and ligaments that support the spine to become torn or strained. Symptoms of whiplash include stiffness of neck pain, blurred vision, pain between the shoulder blades, headache, fatigue, and dizziness. Chiropractic care can help alleviate whiplash by realigning the spine to reduce inflammation and help torn or strained areas heal.

What You Should Know About Florida Personal Injury Law

Florida is a no-fault state where all drivers are required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. PIP insurance is known as “no-fault insurance” because it covers any injuries due to an automobile accident no matter who is found to be at fault. PIP insurance coverage is responsible for 80% of reasonable and necessary medical bills, 100% of household services, and 60% of lost wages, but typically only up to a $10,000 limit. Under Florida law, every registered motor vehicle owner is required to carry a minimum of $10,000 of PIP insurance to protect themselves from any injuries that occur due to an automobile accident. PIP coverage is also primary over any health insurance when it comes to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
It is crucial to seek treatment from an expert provider like Dr. Lee Perdeck because if you don’t see a doctor within 14 days of the accident occurring, you won’t be able to qualify for PIP coverage for medical treatment. Moreover, you also have the right to choose your own physician, and Dr. Lee Perdeck has extensive experience working with personal injury attorneys if you choose to contest an insurance claim or move forward with a personal injury case.

Florida PIP Laws

Florida statute 637.736 requires that PIP benefits include: 80% of all reasonable expenses for any medical, surgical, dental, X-ray, and rehabilitative services that are medically necessary. This includes medically necessary hospital, ambulance, prosthetic devices, and nursing services if the individual seeks initial services and care that falls under subparagraph 1 within two weeks after the automobile accident.
