I don’t feel injured, but am experiencing a tingling sensation in my back following a car accident. Should I notify the insurance company?

 

A:

Sarasota auto accidents can cause a variety of injuries. While some people may not believe they are injured, they may not be aware that even the slightest tingling sensation could be a sign of a serious injury.

If you are experiencing a tingling or pins and needles sensation, it is best to notify your insurance company that you are injured. When speaking with the insurance adjuster, do not indicate that you are injury-free, because a tingling sensation is an injury.  Additionally, it is critical that you see a doctor within two weeks of the date of your Sarasota car accident.

By informing a doctor of your tingling sensation, he or she will document your injuries so that there is proof that the accident you were involved in did affect you. Remember, it is critical that you see a doctor within 14 days of your crash so that you can have access to your personal injury protection benefits under Florida laws.

Failing to report even the slightest tingling feeling to the insurance company and your doctor can harm your health and your potential Florida personal injury claim. You never know if the tingling you are feeling now will develop into a deeper pain, or if it is a sign of a serious nerve injury or herniated disc injury.

After reporting your tingling feeling and seeing a doctor, you may need help recovering fair compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
