If you were involved in a serious car accident, it is imperative that you seek immediate medical treatment. Why? Well, there are numerous reasons. First and foremost, you need to be seen by a medical professional to ensure that you did not suffer a serious injury, such as internal bleeding, organ damage, concussion or other head injury, etc. Second, you need the opinion of a medical professional to help protect and strengthen your legal rights if you decide to pursue a personal injury claim as a result of the auto accident.
In the Wake of a Car Accident, The Worst Thing You Can Do is Shrug Off an Injury as “Not Serious”
If you were involved in a car accident, you may be thinking that you are “fine” and do not need to go to the hospital or see your primary care physician. This is a big mistake that can have significant ramifications both on your health and the viability of your personal injury claim.
Far too many people forgo immediate medical attention after a car wreck. This may stem from increased adrenaline that typically follows a stressful situation, such as being involved in a car accident. Other people are hesitant to visit a doctor because they may not have great health insurance or are nervous around doctors. These are understandable issues, but it is important to understand that each day you fail to get medical treatment, the more harm you are doing to your legal options and your ability to obtain financial restitution for your harms and losses stemming from the car crash. The reason delayed medical treatment is so harmful to your claim is because an insurance adjuster will try to use the delay to argue that you are not really injured or that your injuries were “not that serious.” This can sty my the settlement negotiation process and risk convincing a potential juror that you were really hurt in the accident.
Do not let this happen. Go see a doctor asap.
