Who Pays Medical Bills After Car Accident

Who Will Pay For My Medical Bills After a Car Accident?

Hi, Gene Zweben from Zweben Law Group here to give you a little bit of information about what to do after a car accident and how it works with your medical bills. In Florida, we’re a no-fault state where personal injury protection, which is called PIP insurance, on your own policy pays for the first $10,000 of your medical bills. It will pay 80% of every medical bill up to $10,000. You can purchase additional insurance called medical payments coverage that will pay for that 20% and sometimes depending upon how high the limits are will pay for even more […]

This is Gene Zweben from Zweben Law Group here to give you some information on what to do after you’re involved in an accident. After an accident insurance companies are going to be calling you.

7 Things To Do After An Accident

Clip this article and keep it in your glove-box. The advice here may seem obvious, and you probably know all of it already, but in the heat of the moment following an accident, even the best of us may forget. 1. Check yourself and your passengers for injuries. If you have even the slightest doubt about how badly someone is hurt, call an ambulance. 2. Get to safety. Move your car out of the way of traffic if you can. Turn off the engine, put the car in park, and turn on your hazard lights. 3. Call 911. Even if […]

Economic verses Non-Economic Damages

What are “Non-Economic Damages” Worth? When it comes to damages in a lawsuit, maybe they should be called objective vs. subjective – or quantitative vs. qualitative – but the legal terms of art are economic and non-economic. Economic damages are purely financial. They are documented by medical bills, paychecks, damage/repair estimates, and invoices for professional and paraprofessional services. As a result, economic damages are fairly simple to prove. Non-economic damages are colloquially known as pain and suffering. They include emotional distress, mental anguish, depression, and loss of capacity for enjoyment of life. All of these are more difficult to measure […]

Do “U” Have the Right of Way?

When you drive on roads like U.S I as much as most of us do, you need to master the art of the U-Turn. We all know how dangerous it can be, but it turns out it’s also not as simple as a lot of us thought it was. There’s a law. (There’s always a law.) However, as in many cases, there are exceptions to the law.  In this case, the law is Florida Statute 316.1515, and it says:  “The driver of any vehicle shall not turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any street […]

Who needs lawyers?

In today’s world, where everything seems to be available on the Internet, it can be tempting to go “DIY” when it comes to legal matters. But Abraham Lincoln was right when he said, “He who represents himself has a fool for a client.” And there is good evidence to prove his point. Martindale-Nolo Research, a joint venture by two of the world’s most respected legal brands, recently surveyed readers who’d gone through the personal injury claims process, and reached some illuminating conclusions. (Martindale-Hubbell is the 140-year-old publisher that is the “gold standard” for rating attorneys and law firms. Established in […]

Is Your Dog an Insurance Risk?

Your pooch might be a pussycat in your eyes, but your homeowner’s policy may not provide adequate coverage – and if he or she is on the “bad breeds” list used by most insurance companies, it might not cover you at all. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says nearly 4.5 million Americans are bitten every year, resulting in an estimated 885,000 injuries that require medical attention — and half of those bitten are children. According to the Insurance Information Institute and State Farm, dog bites accounted for more than 1/3 of all homeowner’s insurance liability claims paid out […]
