Getting medical treatment right away after a car accident or other injury is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It will also help any personal injury case you might have.
First and foremost, it's important to get medical problems treated to restore your health. Second, delaying or failing to undergo medical treatment is a big problem for your personal injury case and can be a problem for your overall health.
Insurance companies look at your medical treatment to establish the validity and severity of your injuries, and if you delay seeking medical treatment or don’t get any treatment at all when injured, the insurance company will not believe you are injured, or the extent of your injuries are not that bad. You owe it to your health and to your case to get medical treatment.
The last thing you want to do is tough it out. If you are hurting following a collision, seek medical treatment. In some cases, primary care physicians are reluctant to treat patients injured in a collision. If your primary care physician will not see you because your injuries were due to a crash, then get treatment with a doctor who will see you. There are plenty of physicians who will treat you.
If you do not have health insurance and you are injured, it is important you still need medical treatment. If we decide to represent you, we can recommend medical professionals for you and the payment of the medical bills can be deferred until your case resolves.
