What does it mean that Florida is a no-fault state?
In short, a no-fault state is one in which a car insurance company has to pay the first $10,000 in medical bills and lost wages, no matter who was responsible for the car accident. This coverage is referred to as Personal Injury Protection and allows you to visit your own doctor or the doctor of your choice. If you have more than $10,000 in medical bills then we recommend you call us right away to find out more about your options.
When should I visit a doctor?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident then you should see your doctor right away. Even an injury that may seem minor today could lead to long-term consequences. The sooner you see your doctor, the sooner you’ll know about what type of treatment you may need and what your insurance will cover. Gilbert & Smallman can work directly with many doctors throughout the area and can help ensure you get the treatment you need.
How much do I need to give my personal injury attorney up front?
If you work with Gilbert & Smallman, the answer is $0. We take cases on contingency, which means that we only get our fees if we’re able to get a settlement or judgement for you. If we don’t win your case then you don’t owe us anything. This means that you not only don’t have to pay money upfront but you can feel 100% confident that we’re working as hard for you as we possibly can. After all, our success depends on yours.
We offer free consultations to people throughout Florida. If you’ve been injured then today is the day to find out if you have options. Call us today and we’ll go over the basics of your case.
