If you are in an accident, the first thing you should do is get medical treatment. Going to the doctor after an accident establishes proof that you were injured in the accident. The longer you put it off, the less likely it is that the opposing insurance company will cover the cost of treatment. They may say things like, “They didn’t go to the doctor, they must not be hurt that bad,” or “Those injuries are not related to the accident since they didn’t go see a doctor right away.”
Go to the Doctor as Soon as You Can
If you were in a car accident, you may not feel the effects of it on your back and neck until the next day, or even a few days later. Once the adrenaline wears off, the back pain can start to creep in and you may be responsible for paying for your own medical care at that point. We all know how those costs can add up, so be sure you establish care with a doctor as soon as you can after the accident so your treatment costs can be filed with your personal injury claim.
Is Cost a Concern in Going to the Doctor?
Personal injury firms like Carrollton Injury Law can help you find a doctor that does not require payment up front. These doctors work under a Letter of Protection, which means they agree to collect their fees out of the final settlement. This eases the financial burden on you and can help get you the maximum value for your personal injury claim by establishing that the accident caused your injuries.
