Get Medical Care Immediately After A Car Accident
If you get injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident or big truck accident, immediately get treated by a medical doctor. Do not wait. Waiting can greatly harm your your health and your injury case. Period.
Get medical care ASAP (As Soon As Possible)after your accident even if you think you “feel fine”. Often people who have been injured in a trucking accident, car accident or motorcycle accident think they “feel fine”,don’t get treated and find out weeks or months later that they have injuries, sometimes serious injuries, they were not aware of.
Over the years as an injury lawyer, I have spoken with people who have been injured in accidents and waited for weeks or months before visiting a medical doctor and getting evaluated and treated for their injuries.
Some people said“I just wanted to tough it out.” Or “I didn’t think it was that bad.” Or “I didn’t think I was hurt badly.” Or “I didn’t think my medical bills would be paid for if I got treated for my injuries from the car wreck.”
Too often these injured people are living in pain – sometimes severe pain – thinking they are “just fine” and/or simply not knowing what to do. Unfortunatelythey are suffering,not getting the healthcare they need and – as if all that wasn’t hard enough – they are damaging their injury case from a legal standpoint, even though they are injured and it is factually clear their injuries were caused by the negligence of another person.
Two Problems Caused By Not Getting Medical Care Immediately After Your Car Accident:
1. Your Health. Delaying medical treatment harms your health by causingyou to suffer pain needlessly and can cause unknown injuries to worsen.
2. Your Injury Case. Your injury case will be weakened and you may even lose your chance to have an injury case at all if you fail to get medical care immediately after your car accident.
Why? When you delay your medical care after being injured in a car accident, both claims insuranceadjusters and insurance defense lawyers will use it against you.
How? By claiming a couple of things, among others. One, if you were “really injured from the accident” you would have got medical care sooner.
Two, that your injuries were caused byanother activity not related to the car accident that happened afterthe car accident and beforeyou started treating (falling down stairs, sports,athletic activities, etc.). Both reasons stated are to pay you nomoney, or as little as they can get you to accept.
