The Importance of Contacting An Experienced Bike Law Attorney Immediately—The 14-Day Rule
Regardless of who’s at fault for your crash, it’s extremely important to contact an experienced Palm Beach County bike law attorney as soon as possible following your involvement in any type of bike crash or accident.
Florida is a “no-fault” state. This means that crash victims must turn to their own insurance company first to pay for their medical bills, lost earnings, and the costs incurred for replacement services, i.e., any service needed due to the loss of ability caused by the crash such as housekeeping. This is true regardless of which party or parties actually caused or are deemed at-fault for the crash.
In general, crash victims must receive initial medical treatment by an authorized healthcare provider within 14 days after the crash. Failure to comply with this strict deadline along with the many other technical rules and deadlines governing Florida’s no-fault insurance claims process may result in a substantial reduction of benefits (from up to $10,000 reduced to a maximum of $2,500) or even complete denial of benefits.
Under Florida’s no-fault insurance system, the following types of healthcare providers are authorized to furnish initial medical care and services for purposes of filing a valid claim:
- medical doctors
- doctors of osteopathic medicine
- and emergency medical personnel.
The myriad rules and requirements of Florida’s no-fault insurance system are incredibly complex and can be very confusing for crash victims. As a result, crash victims are often denied benefits simply because they didn’t know or understand the rules, deadlines, and technical requirements.
It’s essential to contact an experienced Palm Beach County bike law attorney as soon as possible after being involved in any type of bike crash or accident. Time is not on your side. If you miss the 14-day deadline, you may permanently forfeit your legal rights to valuable medical, wage, and expense benefits available under Florida’s no-fault insurance system.
