Why You Should See A Doctor Right After An Accident

Why You Should See A Doctor Right After An Accident

Whether you have suffered a minor or serious injury after being involved in a car accident, you should always seek immediate medical attention from a doctor. Not only is it important for your overall well-being, but it is also a crucial step in your personal injury claim.

The following are common reasons why you should see a physician right after a crash:

  1. Your injury could become worse – If you fail to see a doctor in a timely manner, the optimum window of opportunity for treatment may pass. Delaying treatment can result in not being able to make a full recovery, or you may require more aggressive and costly treatments.
  2. Postponing treatment can have a negative impact on your personal injury lawsuit – Not only does waiting too long affects your health, but it also impacts your personal injury claim. Delaying treatment may make the insurance carrier think you are exaggerating the severity of your injuries.
  3. You may not know the full extent of your injuries – Some injuries do not immediately present symptoms, such as whiplash. You may appear to be completely fine, but some car accident victims end up either suffering from long-term health issues due to an internal injury or pass away. A doctor can detect any life-threatening injuries before they can inflict more damage.
  4. Your doctor can give you the required documents for your lawyer – Having documentation of your diagnosis, treatment, medication, and other medical-related paperwork can be beneficial in ensuring you obtain the compensation you deserve. Your attorney needs paperwork regarding medical visits and treatments to determine the monetary damages you are entitled to.

    Los abogados de Hyland & Padilla me ayudaron a recuperarme de mi accidente en 2017. Me caí al trabajo, me rompí la pierna izquierda y no pude trabajar. Andrea me ayudó con los tribunales y consiguió dinero para mi lesión. Ahora no tengo que elegir entre pagar las facturas y recuperarme de una pierna fracturada.
