Do I have to see a doctor following my car accident? | Stuart Auto Injury Lawyers

If you’ve been involved in a car crash in the state of Florida, you do not have to see a doctor if you’re not injured. However, if you do feel pain or are injured, it is important that you see a doctor within the first 14 days after the accident. This is the time set aside in which to trigger your PIP, or personal injury protection, coverage. You should see either a medical doctor or a D.O., for purposes of getting an EMC, or emergency medical condition, determination. If the doctor feels that you’ve experienced an emergency medical condition, then it’ll make sure that you have up to the full 10,000 dollars of PIP coverage set aside for you to take care of your treatment.
