I’ve​ ​been​ ​injured​ ​in​ ​a​ ​car​ ​accident​ ​and​ ​my​ ​doctor​ ​tells​ ​me​ ​I​ ​need​ ​physiotherapy treatment,​ ​who​ ​pays​ ​for​ ​this?

Most​ ​often​ ​immediately​ ​after​ ​a​ ​car​ ​accident​ ​there​ ​may​ ​still​ ​be​ ​outstanding​ ​issues​ ​dealing with​ ​the​ ​question​ ​of​ ​liability​ ​and​ ​essentially​ ​who​ ​is​ ​to​ ​blame.​ ​Sometimes​ ​it​ ​may​ ​take years​ ​for​ ​those​ ​questions​ ​to​ ​be​ ​finally​ ​resolved.​ ​Therefore,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​interim​ ​every​ ​auto
insurance​ ​policy​ ​holder​ ​is​ ​entitled​ ​to​ ​the​ ​benefits​ ​of​ ​what​ ​is​ ​referred​ ​to​ ​as​ ​“Section​ ​B coverage”.​ ​In​ ​this​ ​regard,​ ​essentially​ ​your​ ​own​ ​insurer​ ​is​ ​obligated​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​minimum benefits​ ​relating​ ​to​ ​medical​ ​care,​ ​loss​ ​of​ ​wages,​ ​vehicle​ ​damage​ ​and​ ​so​ ​forth.​ ​Ultimately if​ ​the​ ​“other​ ​party”​ ​is​ ​found​ ​to​ ​be​ ​liable,​ ​then​ ​your​ ​insurance​ ​company​ ​can​ ​claim reimbursement​ ​from​ ​their​ ​insurer​ ​for​ ​the​ ​interim​ ​money​ ​that​ ​they​ ​have​ ​paid​ ​out.

Depending​ ​on​ ​the​ ​extent​ ​of​ ​any​ ​personal​ ​injuries,​ ​the​ ​time​ ​it​ ​takes​ ​to​ ​resolve​ ​a​ ​claim most​ ​often​ ​depends​ ​on​ ​the​ ​time​ ​it​ ​takes​ ​to​ ​secure​ ​sufficient​ ​medical​ ​information​ ​to determine​ ​the​ ​extent​ ​of​ ​your​ ​injuries​ ​and​ ​the​ ​future​ ​prognosis.

In​ ​our​ ​opinion,​ ​it’s​ ​critical​ ​that​ ​you​ ​engage​ ​legal​ ​counsel​ ​immediately​ ​after​ ​the​ ​accident so​ ​that​ ​there​ ​is​ ​no​ ​delay​ ​or​ ​burden​ ​in​ ​obtaining​ ​the​ ​required​ ​funds​ ​to​ ​receive​ ​the necessary​ ​medical​ ​treatment​ ​you​ ​require.​ ​Your​ ​initial​ ​consultation​ ​with​ ​us​ ​is​ ​free.​ ​Call​ ​us today​ ​at​ ​902-539-2425​ ​or​ ​email​ ​​mail@sampsonmcphee.com
