Tampa Car Accident Law
Effective January 1, 2013, those injured in a Tampa car accident only have 14 days from the date of the Tampa car crash to seek medical care or risk forfeiting the right to receive thousands of dollars in accident-related medical care.
Now, failure to obtain medical treatment within this very limited timeframe may completely bar a car accident victim’s right to receive payment of any insurance benefits due under their automobile insurance policy, regardless of fault. Given the foregoing, it is critical accident victims immediately consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect their legal rights.
In addition, under this new law, only victims diagnosed with an “Emergency Medical Condition” (EMC) are entitled to the full $10,000.00 in no-fault medical coverage they purchased from their insurance company. Only certain medical specialists — medical doctors (MDs), osteopathic physicians (DOs) , dentists (DMDs), physician assistants (PAs) or advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) — are “qualified” under Florida law to make this newly-imposed EMC diagnosis; a chiropractor cannot make this determination.
