After a car accident in Florida, one of the most important things to know is that you have 14 days to get medical care in order to be eligible to receive your PIP benefits. During the current COVID-19 pandemic we have many injured car accident victims calling us who, understandably, are nervous about going to a doctor’s office to seek treatment. Additionally, they know it is important to get medical treatment within the 14 day period. During COVID-19, the 14-day policy is Still in effect. We want to assure you that a telemedicine appointment completed virtually, does count as seeking medical treatment, and will qualify you for your PIP if completed within 14 days after the injury.
Telemedicine appointments are very much like going into a doctor’s office. You talk directly with a doctor about your issues and concerns, and they diagnose your injury and the next steps on the road to recovery. Additionally, many doctors are making home visits when needed.
At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we refer you to the best doctors for your injury; doctors that we would go to ourselves. We have kept in close contact with all of these doctors using COVID-19 and know who is open for telemedicine appointments, who is making house calls, and making sure that their in-office procedures are safe and following all COVID-19 protocols.
During a pandemic, with everything else to worry about, the last thing you want to deal with is an injury, but don’t let yourself suffer because you don’t know how to get treatment safely. At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we are here to help you get the care you need so you can make a full recovery. Your health and safety is our number one concern and the number one concern of the doctors we recommend.
