- Why is it important to call Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A., immediately after the accident? Gathering information needs to start immediately.

- If I go to a doctor, how do I pay my medical bills? There are medical specialists in the community who take “letters of protection.” These letters of protection mean that the doctor will receive payment when the case settles. There is also protection under Florida PIP laws which provide $10,000 coverage for medical bills and lost wages.
- What is a contingency fee? There are no costs or attorney fees unless we make a monetary recovery for you.
