Why you should seek medical attention after a car accident
Even if you don’t notice any injuries following an accident, it’s very important to seek medical attention for an exam within 14 days of the accident. Sometimes injuries won’t show symptoms or feel painful right away. Internal injuries or trauma can be extremely serious, albeit invisible on the surface.
The second reason to seek immediate medical attention is for legal recordkeeping. In the event you need compensation to pay for your treatment or cover lost wages, it will be necessary to prove your injuries according to legal due process. A professional medical exam with signed paperwork will be a key part of the evidence you need to make a claim with your insurance company, liable parties, and judges.
If you were involved in an auto accident in any capacity, please make an appointment at the Injury Centers of Brevard location nearest you. If needed, we can arrange for free transportation to our office.
Good recordkeeping is important
Immediately following a car accident, there are a few things you can do to prepare for insurance claims or other legal procedures to support recovery. In addition to seeing a doctor right away, keep all medical bills and doctor’s notes. Write down descriptions of your injuries and the pain you experience, and take photos of your injuries as soon as possible after the accident.
