If I Am Injured In An Automobile Accident, How Do I Go About Getting Medical Care With A Medical Provider?
A: In Florida, automobile insurance is “No-Fault”. This means that you can collect from your own insurance company, regardless of who is at fault and caused the damages in the accident. This also means that you may go to the medical providers with whom you are most comfortable and your own automobile insurance will pay 80% of your medical bills, minus any deductible you may have. In addition, this “No-Fault” coverage will also pay 60% of your lost wages when a doctor determines that you are unable to work due to this incident. However, because of the complexities involved with “No-Fault” insurance and it’s limitations, you may wish to consult with an attorney upon being injured in an automobile collision.
