Do I Need to See a Doctor After a Car Accident?

Data suggest that there are dozens of non-fatal car accidents that take place each day. Being in a car accident is frightening- regardless as to how minor or severe the fender bender turns out to be.

Regardless as to how you feel after the accident, you’ll still want to be examined by a doctor as quickly as possible.

I Feel Fine. Do I Really Need to See a Doctor?

Yes. You should absolutely see a doctor, even if you think you’re ok. There is a long list of reasons you should do this.

First, there’s a chance you may have sustained a concussion. And while most people understand that serious concussions require medical care, minor concussions may not present immediate symptoms. Concussions are a type of brain injury and this isn’t an injury you should ignore. It’s always best to get checked out, just to be on the safe side.

Second, you may have suffered a soft tissue injury that you’re not immediately aware of. When you get into a car accident, your body gets filled with adrenaline. This is why people some people, who may not feel sore after the accident, wake up in terrible pain the next day.

When you see a doctor, they’ll be able to evaluate your condition and document what they found during the exam. If you have pain or additional symptoms that star to emerge later, they can add that information to your file.

If you choose to file a personal injury lawsuit, you’ll need to present medical evidence that will back up your claim. If you don’t see a doctor and you don’t have this type of evidence, your case is unlikely to be successful.

Benefits of Speaking with a Personal Injury Lawyer

In our last blog post we talked about the downsides of trying to handle a personal injury claim on your own. In addition to running the risk of missing key deadlines, you’re unlikely to get the best settlement possible.

Working with an experienced Naples law firm will ensure you have an experienced advocate working on your behalf, who understands how to negotiate with the plaintiff’s insurance company. You’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have an attorney who will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
