What if I did not leave the scene of my Florida car accident in an ambulance? Can I go to the hospital on my own the next day?
You can absolutely go to the hospital the next day after your collision even if you don’t go to the hospital the same day via rescue. I have often seen the case over the many years of my practice that someone gets in a car collision and they don’t initially feel pain or symptoms and then the next day they do and so it is important to go ahead and get treatment on that following day if you do have injuries. In fact, in Florida, you must get treatment within the first 14 days of your collision in order to be able to have you PIP benefits which pays 80% of your medical bills in Florida.
