Many people who are injured in accidents find themselves in a difficult position. To get better, they need medical care. However, the insurance company of the at-fault party will not pay for medical expenses until the case is resolved through settlement or jury verdict. This places a great deal of pressure on accident victims to settle — and some do, for a fraction of what their case is worth.

At Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP in Miami, our injury lawyers are here to advise you about medical care and other issues involved in your personal injury case. Whether you hire us to represent you or not, we offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions and explain your rights. We represent clients throughout South and Central Florida.

Why You Need To Obtain Medical Care

Do not let a lack of health insurance or coverage with a high deductible dissuade you from obtaining the medical care you need. If you discontinue treatment because you think you can't afford it, the insurance company will assume that you are no longer injured — and offer you less money than you deserve. An even worse consequence is that you may find that your injury leads to a chronic health condition.

Until your personal injury case is resolved, you will need to find another way to pay your medical bills. Your options may include:

  • Personal injury protection coverage, which is a part of your Florida no-fault insurance
  • Health coverage through your employer
  • A private health insurance policy
  • Medicare
  • Medicaid

Our attorneys will help you choose the best way to pay your medical benefits. We'll also negotiate with your health insurance plan so you will end up with the most money left in your pocket after your personal injury case is resolved.

You should never accept an insurance company's settlement offer without discussing your case with a lawyer. Once you accept a settlement and sign a waiver, your case is over. You will not be able to request more money later if your injury turns out to be more severe than you thought.
