Motor Vehicle Accidents and the 14-Day Rule

If you have been in an auto accident, it’s imperative that you visit a doctor within 14 days – even if you don’t immediately feel any pain. You may feel fine at first, but symptoms from a car accident injury can occur long after the incident.

In Florida, state law requires you to carry personal injury protection (PIP) coverage as part of your auto insurance policy. Several years ago, the law was changed to introduce “the 14-day rule,” which stipulates that if you don’t seek initial treatment within 14 days of a motor vehicle accident, the insurance company doesn’t have to pay for treatment you may seek later. Even if you are in a simple fender bender, it is important to visit a doctor and receive a physical evaluation as soon as possible.

At Comprehensive Injury Center, we offer same-day or next-day appointments for auto accident injuries. Any of our doctors can evaluate your injury and determine if you need immediate treatment. We have diagnostic testing available on site, including MRI and nerve conduction studies, to help diagnose the extent of your injury.

Work-Related Injuries

Comprehensive Injury Center is a leader in diagnosing and treating work-related injuries in Central Florida. Our doctors provide comprehensive medical care that focuses on getting injured employees back to work as quickly as possible.

In addition, Dr. James Shea has many years of experience as an expert witness in cases involving litigation, including workers’ compensation cases. Independent medical exams (IMEs) are a critical step in determining return-to-work status, and Dr. Shea will conduct an objective and thorough IME to address specific questions.

For cases involving catastrophic injury such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or multiple orthopedic trauma, Dr. Shea can define impairment, disability, and cost to provide patient care over the lifespan. He is often called upon to perform IMEs for veterans suffering these types of injuries.
