Car Injury Lawyer | Advice
In some instance people are hurt very badly in a car accident. The police and paramedics are called right away and they are taken to the nearest hospital. Others, who are involved in what may be termed a “minor” car accidents, are not always taken to the hospital by ambulance and rarely seek immediate medical treatment. This is a mistake.
Car Accident | Injuries
Typically, if a person experiences no immediate pain or noticeable discomfort at the scene of the crash, they will not seek medical treatment. Unfortunately, most people involved in car accidents do not realize they have suffered an injury. Adrenaline levels spike immediately following an accident which result in the pain being masked.
I strongly urge everyone who has been involved in a car accident to seek medical treatment even if it serves the purpose to reassure you that you will be ok. Contact your family health care provider and schedule a physical. Let a physician examine you and adhere to any follow-up treatments that may be recommended. Discuss with your provider in detail the nature of the accident and where your car was hit.
Car Accident | Claims
Do not delay in seeking medical treatment following a car accident. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Example Scenario 1: Richard, a 69-year old Vietnam War Vet, was rear-ended by Tom who ran a red light. Richard hit the left side of his body and his head hit against driver’s side window. He felt a little shaken after the event but never sought medical treatment. Months later, Richard’s left side continued to cause him pain and his neck would continuously cramp up. Richard sought medical attention 3-months after his car accident and was diagnosed with a chronic neck strain which needed months of therapy and pain management. In this instance Richard would be entitled to file an injury suit against Richard seeking pain and suffering damages.
Yet, if a person delays in seeking medical treatment, it will harm their case. Insurance defense attorneys are skilled and will explore the lack of immediate treatment in front of a jury to bring into question the plaintiff’s credibility.
