Auto Accident-Related Injury Treatment in St. Petersburg

Almost 10,000 injuries related to auto accidents are reported in Pinellas County each year according to the FLHSMV. This is a scary statistic for anyone out there on the roads. It becomes even scarier when you think about the thousands of injuries that go unreported each year, often because symptoms do not show up until days or weeks after the accident. These delayed symptoms can wreak havoc on auto accident victims, causing undue pain and expense.

Don’t Wait to Get Help

Schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible to be fully evaluated for injuries related to being involved in an auto accident. Not only do you want to begin your care as early as possible for health reasons, but you must also seek medical care within 14 days of the accident in order to use your auto insurance’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. PIP coverage will pay 80% of qualified medical expenses related to the accident, regardless of fault, up to $10,000 for emergency situations. If you miss this 14-day window to qualify for PIP coverage, then you may be stuck paying for your care out-of-pocket or using your personal health insurance.

Call (844) 935-5669 or request an appointment online to be at the 14-day deadline and start your path toward healing today. We offer competent, compassionate care with appointments as soon as the same day for auto accident victims.

Whiplash Care

Whiplash happens when the head is jerked back and forth violently, causing pain, tenderness, swelling, and reduced range of motion. Whiplash often has a delayed onset, with first symptoms sometimes not showing up until days after the accident. Symptoms of severe, untreated whiplash may also include:

  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • dizziness
  • memory loss
  • irritability
  • vision problems
  • sleep problems
  • depression

Muscle Tears and Other Soft Tissue Injuries

Sprains, strains, and concussions are the most common injuries after an auto accident. Muscle tears are especially common and painful. While minor bruises will likely show up immediately after an accident, more severe bruises and injuries may take days or weeks to cause issues. Using a combination of therapies can ease the pain and discomfort of soft tissue injuries while boosting circulation and promoting healing.

Spinal Injury Care

A spinal injury is one of the most feared types of injury after an auto accident. Your spine is extremely fragile and affects almost every other part of your body. During an auto accident, the vertebrae, musculature, and other soft tissues around the spine can become strained, herniated, or otherwise impaired. Depending on the location of the spinal injury and the involved nerves, if any, functioning in multiple parts of the body may be affected. Spinal injuries are exceptionally serious and require quick, skilled care to manage the damage and pain effectively.

No Referral Needed

Florida Wellness Medical Center in St. Petersburg does not require a referral to be seen for injuries related to an auto accident if the treatment qualifies for PIP coverage. However, a referral may be required if using personal health insurance or worker’s compensation coverage.

No Insurance Required

Even if you miss the deadline for PIP coverage of your injuries and don’t have health insurance, don’t worry! We offer competitive self-pay rates for patients without coverage. If you are involved in a legal case over the payment of your medical expenses, we may consider a Letter of Protection (LOP) agreement from your attorney to eliminate your up-front costs.
