Q. Will the insurance company spy on me with video surveillance?
There are a couple of other things that an injured person needs to know about video surveillance. First, the insurance company will not tell you about the surveillance, and even you are represented by an attorney, you will not be able to see the video until after your deposition, and only if the insurance defense attorney is going to use the video at trial. Second, if the video surveillance shows an inconsistency between your activities of daily living and what the injured person reports to their doctor(s), lawyer or during the litigation process, the person’s credibility is destroyed and their case will be undercut.

Q. What is Medical Payments Insurance?
You need to know that If you receive recovery from the other driver’s insurance company because of the accident, your insurance company may require you to pay back all or part of the med-pay benefit. This is not the case with PIP Your insurance company has no right of reimbursement with PIP.
We all know that the cost of medical care is quite high. If you do not have health insurance getting medical payments coverage on your automobile insurance policy can help you pay for your medical expenses if you’re injured in a Florida car accident whether the accident is or is not your fault.

Q. Can I still make an accident claim if I don’t have insurance?
If you have minimal injuries, you probably will not recoup enough money to pay your medical expenses. If you have moderate or severe injuries, you should be able to make a claim. Your lack of insurance will not stop you from making a claim, but you have to understand the risks associated with being uninsured.
Q. I was injured in a car accident, and the accident report is on my side, can I use the accident report to prove the other driver is at fault?
The reason for the privilege is that the legislature wants drivers in accidents to be truthful with law enforcement investigating the crash without the hammer sitting over their heads that any statements can be used against them in a civil lawsuit. You will be able to use the police report when negotiating with the insurance adjuster and the insurance adjuster will look at the statements when making a determination of fault.
So there you have it. You can use the police report before a lawsuit to negotiate your claim, but you cannot use it in a lawsuit.
Q. I was recently involved in a car accident on 441 by the Lakesquare Mall in Leesburg. After the accident, I went to a local hospital emergency room. I was in a lot of pain. The emergency room doctor looked at me, took a few x-rays, told me I was okay and released me. I’ve been getting worse, why did the emergency room doctor tell me I was okay?
This doesn’t mean that you were not injured in the car accident, it only means that you did not have life-threatening injuries. You should go to a doctor who works with car accident victims to get checked out if you are still having problems. Sometimes your family doctor will not want to deal with accident and injury claims so you should tell the doctor’s office that you are making an appointment because you were injured in a car accident.
