Unfortunately, accidents can seem impossible to avoid no matter what you do. When you are involved in an accident at the hands of another’s recklessness or negligence, it can leave you emotionally shaken and completely disoriented. The messy aftermath is difficult to navigate, especially depending on the scale of the accident and the number of people involved. However, despite any confusion or chaos, it is vital you seek medical attention right away—even if you cannot recognize any immediate, life-threatening injuries. Not only is this crucial for your physical wellbeing and mental peace of mind, but it will play a vital role in any future personal injury claims for compensation.
We firmly believe you should not hesitate to get the medical care and attention you need after an accident, no matter how minimal your injuries seem. Here’s why:
- Adrenaline is a powerful response to many high-stress situations, disguising any potentially dangerous injuries. You may not realize the full extent of your injuries until hours or days later, at which point it may be too late.
- Your injuries may be invisible to the naked eye. Even the slightest symptoms, such as aches or bruising, may indicate a far more serious condition than you expect. You deserve compensation for these injuries and cannot hope to obtain what you need without proper medical documentation.
- Waiting too long to seek medical treatment will adversely impact your claim as the opposing insurance company will explore every possibility to devalue your claim. They may argue your lack of action is a sign that your injury is not as debilitating as you claim, or that it is unrelated to the incident at hand. Combat these accusations by collecting necessary medical documentation after your initial physician visit.
