If you're injured in an accident, don't be surprised your primary care doctor will not want to see you or may want to see you under a different arrangement and not your health insurance. 

That's because medical treatment for auto accident injuries is slightly different from your standard care. Many physicians don't want to do the extra work involved in treating you and not get paid.

When auto accidents happen, insurance companies are looking to minimize how much they pay you or not pay you at all—and they will succeed if you go to them as an unrepresented claimant. 

There are times when you don't need a lawyer. For example, if you get into a minor parking lot fender bender, and it's someone else's fault, no one is injured, and all you're trying to do is get your car fixed, then you don't nee...

If you’re a Florida resident who’s been involved in an automobile accident, there’s one courtroom secret you may want to learn about: the nonjoinder statute.
