You are suffering from pain in the car accident you were in a few days ago. At the time, you thought it was a minor accident and since you did not feel any major aches or pains, you did not see a doctor. Now, the insurance company claims your injuries are not that severe since you did not see a doctor. The insurance company also claims your injury is unrelated to the accident since you waited to see a doctor.
How can you avoid the above scenario? Go see a doctor after a car crash or any other incident that causes you injury. Even if you do not feel immediate pain, have a doctor examine you and report back to him or her if your condition changes. Some injuries, especially neck and back injuries tend to manifest gradually and get worse if left untreated. Head trauma can lead to a brain injury and affect the rest of your life if a doctor does not perform a proper diagnosis.
Some injuries, such as whiplash, require chiropractic treatment and massage therapy, which many health insurance policies will not cover. As a result, you will have to pay for the treatment out of your own pocket. Paying out of pocket for treatment will be costly and a personal injury attorney can help you recoup those costs in addition to monetary damages for your injuries.
Have you had to see a doctor for any recent injuries caused by another person’s negligence?
