Why You Shouldn't Wait to See a Doctor after Your Accident

Why You Shouldn't Wait to See a Doctor after Your Accident

Posted By The Weinstein Firm, LLC || 12-Nov-2016

Whether you have been injured in a car accident or you hit your head after slipping and falling, seeing a doctor or physician as soon as you are able could be in your best interest. Many people skip seeing a doctor after an accident because they don’t feel any pain or don’t believe that they are injured. Even though injuries like broken bones can be obvious right away, other injuries like brain injuries may take time to recognize. Our Atlanta personal Injury attorneys explain the importance of seeking a doctor’s expertise and some warning signs of a serious injury.

You Can Protect Your Case

If you wait to see a doctor and claim that you have been injured later, and the insurance company will definitely try to use that against you. They might try to say that if the accident had really injured you, you wouldn’t have waited to see a doctor. Some company attorneys will even stoop so low as to claim that you are lying about the accident causing your injuries. That is why getting a doctor’s input can help support your claims and make it easier to prove that you are entitled to compensation after your accident.

You Can Protect Your Health

It is a scary reality that not all injuries show symptoms right away. There are many serious injuries that don’t show recognizable signs until after time has passed. Going to a doctor after your accident can help you catch injuries that might not be showing symptoms yet.

If you are showing these symptoms, see a doctor as soon as you can:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Sharp pains
  • Stiffness
  • Changes in behavior or mood
  • Extended fatigue

These signs can indicate you could be facing a serious injury. Even if you did not see a physician right after an accident, it is never too late to get started. Our Atlanta auto accident and slip and fall lawyers can help you secure the compensation you need!
