Auto Injury?

After a crash you only have 14 days to seek care

or your claims may be DENIED.

Let us help!




The Florida PIP 14-day rule requires any injured victims to seek medical care within 14 days of an accident.


If you, a friend or family member have recently been in an auto accident, it’s important that you schedule a consultation with a healthcare professional as soon as possible – even if you are not currently experiencing any pain. For car accident victims, it is important to remember that your PIP benefits may only be provided to you if you receive medical treatment for your injuries within 14 days (two weeks) of the accident.

Otherwise, you will not be eligible to receive benefits from your auto insurance.

If you were involved in an Automobile Accident, and you're unsure what to do next,visiting a Chiropractor as soon as possible is crucial for your recovery process.

Even if you are not in immediate pain after your accident, you should still be seen by a Chiropractor. What you may not realize is that being seen by a Chiropractor after an auto accident can help you avoid years of chronic pain.


If you have been involved in an Auto Accident, you need to contact an experienced Chiropractor as soon as possible, and here are the main reasons why:


Diagnosing Your Injuries


Just because you cannot see any injuries to your body externally, does not mean that you have not suffered from an injury.

There are many injuries that will not begin to present symptoms until hours or even a few days later. Deciding not to be treated your injuries can mean the difference between fast healing and long-term maybe even lifetime pain.

When our patients come to Lapine Family Chiropractic Clinic immediately after an auto accident, we are able to diagnose and treat the injuries before they become chronic. We will be able to determine if you were injured even if you do not see or feel any pain at the time.

One of the most common car accident injuries that will not present symptoms until later is whiplash. Whiplash symptoms may manifest themselves right away or at a later date. It is always best to prevent minor injuries from becoming serious long-term issues.


Natural Healing


Did you know our bodies have the ability to heal themselves?

Chiropractic adjustments are conservative and non-invasive treatments.Chiropractic therapies after an accident reduces the inflammation while initiating the healing process

Many people choose to be seen by a primary care provider after an auto accident, and unfortunately, conventional medical practice is taught to treat the symptoms of pain that you are experiencing. This means that often times you will be prescribed medication to take in hopes to alleviate your pain. When you see a Chiropractor after a car crash, they are determined to find the underlying cause of your pain and treating the actual condition rather than just the pain symptoms. Chiropractors use all natural treatments to help with your recovery. Our patients may receive massage therapy, ultrasound,deep tissue healing laser therapy, and functional rehab.

Our clinic has been helping auto injured patients for over 20 years. We know everything you need to know about the personal injury process. If you do not have an attorney we can provide you with a list of competent area attorneys who specialize in PIP claims and compensation.



Like other states, Florida has a statute of limitations, a law that sets a time limit on how long after an accident you can file a personal injury lawsuit.

For personal injury cases and many other types of lawsuits, Florida Statutes Section 95.11 sets this time limit as four years from the date of the accident providing you seek care within 14 days of your accident.
