As I often say, anyone can be involved in a car accident. Even a NFL Quarterback involved in car accident. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is the latest to add to the list.
According to report, Cam Newton was transported by ambulance to a hospital after being involved in an car accident in Charlotte. This car accident also supports the adage that car accidents often happen very close to home or work. Cam Newton’s car accident happened one block from the Panthers stadium.
Before you or a loved one are added to the list of those involved in an automobile accident, check your insurance coverage to make sure that you are carrying uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Too many bad drivers do not carry bodily injury liability insurance coverage. If you are injured in a car accident because of one of these bad drivers, you may not have a means to pay your unpaid medical bills or lost wages from a car accident unless you carry uninsured motorist coverage. So, check it out today and confirm that you have this important insurance coverage.
After a car accident, remember that you only have 14 days to seek medical care if you want to use the car insurance coverage you paid for to pay a portion of your medical bills and lost wages. Toughening it out or waiting for more than 14 days to get treatment will result in your insurance company not having to provide your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefit also known as no-fault benefits. So, if you are involved in a crash, utilize the protection you have been paying for by getting checked out by a doctor with 14 days of the date of accident.
Drive safely and watch out for those who don’t.
