When you have been involved in a car accident it is important that you seek medical attention in a reasonable amount of time. You may feel that you do not need to receive medical care after your auto accident, however, not all injuries show up immediately. A medical professional can check you for soft tissue injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and more following your car crash. Additionally, seeking medical care after your accident will help with your insurance claim.
\After an accident, go to the emergency room for a medical evaluation, then contact our law firm before reaching out to your insurance company for the best outcome in your car accident case.
Whenever You Have Symptoms, See Your Doctor
A lot of personal injury attorneys have stories about clients coming into their offices saying they felt no pain at the scene of their accident, or later the same day. But the following morning they woke up feeling like they had been run over by a truck. These stories are credible — they’re not examples of healthy people looking for a payout via a lawsuit. It can take several hours, several days or even a week for injuries or serious discomfort to register with a car accident victim. (Learn more about common car accident injuries.)
So, the lesson is this: whenever you feel symptoms of injury after a car accident — pain, numbness, dizziness, not feeling like yourself, whatever it is — get medical care. Don’t assume that your injuries will clear up on their own. Do the safe thing and get checked out.
Continue Treatment Until You’re Told to Stop
After a car accident, if your doctor diagnoses an injury and begins treatment, continue the course of treatment until your doctor releases you from it.
There are two main reasons why it is important that you follow through with your treatment. The obvious reason is that your doctor is in the best position to determine how seriously you are injured, and to prescribe the best treatment for you — to help you recover more quickly, and to make you as comfortable as possible while you are recovering. The second reason: your doctor’s records of your visits are the best way to document and verify the nature and extent of your injuries, as well as the course and duration of your treatment. This verification is essential if you later make a car accident injury claim. Medical treatment and medical bills are a large component of damages in a personal injury case.
