Delayed injuries—or injuries that do not manifest symptoms right away—are very common after a car accident. This is because many people experience considerable shock immediately after being involved in a crash. This shock can mask the symptoms of an underlying injury for hours after the accident. In some cases, symptoms may not appear until an underlying injury begins to worsen from lack of medical attention; depending on the type of injury and its severity, this could result in someone not experiencing symptoms for days or even weeks.
If you suffered a delayed injury after a car accident, you still have the right to seek financial compensation for your related damages. It is important that you act quickly, as you have limited time to file an insurance claim and/or lawsuit. Contact The Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. today to speak to one of our experienced attorneys about your potential case at absolutely no cost.
After a motor vehicle accident, some injuries are immediately apparent. Broken bones, lacerations, traumatic amputation—such injuries are not only obvious but also obviously require immediate medical attention. Other injuries, however, are harder to detect.
Sadly, many people walk away from an accident feeling okay only to wake up the next day in excruciating pain. For others, the pain may build slowly over time. In such situations, victims are less likely to receive the immediate medical attention they need and could end up with worsened injuries, more painful symptoms, and various related complications. This tends to lead to more extensive—and costly—medical care, longer recovery periods, and more severe physical and mental pain and suffering.
Additionally, in Florida, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of a motor vehicle accident to remain eligible for compensation under your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage. However, when the symptoms of an injury are delayed after a car accident, victims may not see a doctor or go to the hospital until more than 14 days have passed. If this happens, the victim cannot file a PIP claim—but they may have other options for seeking compensation.
When someone suffers a “serious injury” (as defined by the state of Florida) after a car accident, they have the right to go outside the no-fault system and bring a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. They could also sue the at-fault driver directly for damages. Both options allow the victim to pursue fair compensation for their damages outside of the boundaries and limitations of no-fault insurance.
While you do not legally have to hire a lawyer to pursue an insurance claim, we strongly recommend that you work with our experienced team at The Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. if you have suffered a delayed injury after a car accident. If you did not seek immediate medical attention, the insurance company will likely dispute the validity of your claim. You need someone by your side who can advocate for you by proving your injuries and damages.
Our attorneys are ready to stand up for you and your rights. We provide aggressive, client-focused legal representation throughout the entire process, along with consistent communication and frequent updates on the status of your case. There are no legal fees for you unless/until we recover compensation on your behalf.
