How do I get my medical bills paid, lost wages paid and my car fixed after a Florida car accident?
Medical bills for Florida car accident case
Personal injury protection “PIP” pays for 80% of your medical bills up to $10,000 (on a typical policy). That amount of money will probably be used up before you leave the emergency room. If you have health insurance, after your co-pay, your health insurance benefits will kick in. One of the benefits of hiring an injury lawyer is that lawyer may be able to get you medical care (if you don't have health insurance) through what is called a letter of protection. A letter protection simply means the doctor will treat you, not charge you anything, and at the end of the case he will may get paid out of any settlement received.

Car fixed or repaired after car accident
The insurance company has a property claims adjuster that will handle your claim. Generally, most people carry $10,000 in property damage coverage. The representative from the at-fault driver's insurance company will determine the amount of money to pay to get your vehicle fixed or if it should be totaled. They will come out take pictures and have a professional write up a repair estimate. Alternatively, your insurance company may pay to fix your car. You may have rental car coverage under your insurance policy which will pay for a rental car for a specific period of time. You may also have a dimunition in value claim. That is the difference in value that your car has undergone because of the accident. A car with a clean CarFax is worth more than a car that has been in an accident.
