No, under Florida law you are not required to see a doctor if you’re injured after a car accident. However, under Florida law, if you fail to see a doctor within fourteen days, you can lose your PIP, your personal injury protection coverage, which is the ten thousand dollars of medical expenses that are provided by your car insurance, if you fail to see a doctor. In addition, many injuries that people suffer in car accidents, particularly soft tissue, back, and neck injuries, are not immediately symptomatic. Sometimes people don’t realize how severely injured they are or that they are injured until a day or two or three later. That’s when you start feeling the pain in your lower back or your neck. It’s really helpful and we strongly recommend that you do seek medical treatment promptly after a car accident.
