Boca Raton, FL asked in Car Accidents for Florida

Q: I was in a car accident in Boca Raton. The driver ran a red light and t-boned my vehicle.

I have a broken nose, cuts and bruises on my face, neck and shoulder and my back is hurting. I went to the hospital that day, but I'm still in so much pain. Do I need to use my health insurance? I need help paying these medical bills.

A: Your auto insurance (PIP) will cover your medical bills initially, up to $10,000 generally. You likely have a claim against the at-fault driver. You should consult with a personal injury attorney immediately. Most firms, like ours, offer free consultations.

A: Your auto insurance provides you with $10K in PIP benefits in situations such as these. Simply provide the hospital with your automobile proof of insurance card in lieu of your HMO or PPO policy. You should also be examined and start treatment with a chiropractor immediately as well. I specialize in these types of cases. Please give my office a call asap.
