After a car, truck, or motorcycle crash, the most important thing that an injury victim can do is to seek medical care as soon as possible. Failure to seek medical care in a timely manner is not only dangerous, as it could impair your health and put your life in jeopardy, but it might also be costly in terms of receiving fair compensation in a personal injury case.
When it comes to personal injuries after a car accident, it’s up to the injured party to prove their side of the case. Insurance companies believe that if an individual doesn’t see an accident doctor after a vehicle collision, then they aren’t hurt badly enough to receive compensation.
After any auto accident, it is important to consult with both a doctor and an attorney as soon as possible.

If you are severely injured on the scene of an accident, it is easy to make the decision to go to the emergency department in an ambulance and get medical care right away. But it is more challenging to know what to do if your injuries don’t appear to be serious. Just because you were able to walk away from a car accident doesn’t mean you were not injured in the crash. Accident injuries that appear several days or weeks after the accident are called “latent injuries”. Even the smallest sign of an injury after a car accident should be addressed with a doctor or physical therapist.
