Do I Have To Go To The Doctor After An Accident?

The Aftermath Of An Accident Can Be Traumatic And Confusing

If you or a loved one has been in an accident, you may be shaken up and not know what to do. After talking with the police and getting insurance information from the other party, you may think you can simply go home and wait for the next step. However, without proper medical documentation, you may not have the proof necessary to mount a successful case for damages, and may instead find yourself bankrupted by medical bills that you are solely responsible for.

The First Step Toward Receiving Compensation

At Suisman Shapiro Attorneys-at-Law, our team of experienced personal injury lawyers can advise you on how to prepare a successful case, and one of the first things you must do is go to a doctor.

Because of adrenaline caused by the accident, you may not feel injuries right away. A doctor can examine you and determine if you suffered any serious injuries, not only for your own health but also in order to create a record. Common car accident injuries which you may not notice immediately include:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Slipped or herniated disks in your back
  • Internal bleeding

Seeing a doctor after an accident is very important to your case. And you should never accept an insurance adjuster's first offer without discussing it with an attorney.
