Should I See a Doctor After an Accident?
Even if you are in a minor fender bender, the impact may be enough to cause an injury. Some injuries will not exhibit symptoms for hours, days, or even weeks after the initial trauma. Our firm has guided countless clients to successful legal solutions. We will analyze your options and help you pursue the maximum amount of compensation available.
Common underlying injuries that may not be immediately apparent after an accident include:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Muscle sprains and strains
Seeing a Doctor Can Protect Your Health
Even if you feel fine after an accident, it is still important to make an appointment to see your doctor as soon as possible. Underlying injuries may not be felt until sometime after the accident. A doctor can conduct a thorough examination to determine if there are any underlying injuries, and provide the treatment you need to recover.
Seeing a Doctor Can Protect Your Personal Injury Claim
Medical records are often used as evidence in personal injury claims. If you fail to see a doctor after an accident, the insurance company may say that your injuries were not caused by the crash, or that they aren’t as serious as you say they are. By seeing a doctor, you can use your medical records to prove the nature, extent, and cause of your injuries.
