Know your rights!

My name is Dr. Brett Goldstein and as a licensed chiropractor I see my fair share of patients that have been in bike accidents and car accidents. Many patients do not know their rights or options until I tell them, so I will share them with you very briefly. If you have any questions, feel free send me an E-Mail at BrettG83@Gmail.com or give the office a call at 954-871-1411.

A car hits you (You are on your bicycle)

You have 14 days from the date of the accident to be checked out by a medical professional to be entitled up to $10,000 worth of personal injury protection insurance from your own insurance. If you do not have insurance, it will then default back to a “relative residing in the same household” per Fla. Stat. 627.732.  You then can sue the driver that hit you for damages.
