First Steps After the Accident

1. Secure Your Loved Ones

2. Document Your Injuries

You are required to document your injuries within 14 days of your accident. Seek the help of a dedicated physician that has experience in treating these types of soft tissue injuries such as Dr. Robert Hanopole of Active Life Chiropractic.

The longer you wait prior to receiving care, the increased prevalence of scar tissue formation develops which is weaker, more pain sensitive and less elastic than the original healthy tissue. Therefore the time necessary to recover and resolve your problem will be unnecessarily lengthened. The sooner you act, the quicker you may be able to experience a complete recovery!

3. Contact Your Insurance Company

You’re Covered. Florida is a No-Fault state. If you have insurance, you are covered.  Further, your rates will not increase if you use Personal Injury Protection mandated by the State of Florida.

4. Explore Auto Repair Options

5. Consider Contacting an Attorney

Sadly, you may need to seek legal counsel to protect your rights and make sure that you are able to receive all the necessary health care that your body requires to heal optimally. Many insurance companies are betting on the fact that you won’t even pursue the benefits that you are entitled to. That’s just like being a victim twice!  Remember to see us first before seeking legal counsel so that you begin to heal and your attorney can have the most accurate information to help you.

It is an unfortunate reality that even after a minor accident you’ll need to take a very proactive role to make sure you are protected and receive everything need and deserve. In order to help, Dr. Hanopole has assembled these additional guides for you:
