Been In A Car Accident?
If you were involved in anything more than a fender bender, it is important that you get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible. Many people decide not to seek medical treatment because the initial bumps and bruises don’t seem serious, or the onset of the symptoms aren’t immediately apparent. However, by seeing your doctor soon after the crash, you can not only get hidden problems diagnosed, you can also protect any future injury claim you may need to make.
Is Treatment Necessary?
Injuries Are Often Not Immediately Apparent.
Of course, not every accident produces injuries. However, if the onset of a serious injury is delayed, the failure to have a medical complaint recorded can affect your chances of recovery. Back and neck injuries like herniated disks are not always immediately determinable.
A Delay Can Hurt You In The Long Run.
Many insurance adjusters will refuse to pay claims when there has been a delay in receiving treatment or when large gaps in the treatment have occurred. Even though there are explainable and legitimate reasons for the delay or gap in treatment, victims may end up either uncompensated or under-compensated.
Put Your Health And Safety First.
Here’s the bottom line: if your car was rear-ended, t-boned, or sideswiped, you likely suffered some trauma. Even if you don’t feel it right away, you have nothing to lose by seeing your doctor right away, and you may have everything to gain.
