If I Didn't See a Doctor, Will It Affect My Car Accident Claim?
Were you recently involved in a car accident? If so, you should not hesitate to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Why? First and foremost, your health should be your number-one priority. Even if you are unsure of whether or not you have suffered an injury, you should never ignore the feeling that something isn't quite right. Secondly, it may be more difficult for you to recover the level of compensation that you deserve if you have failed to see a doctor after the crash. Insurance companies evaluate car accident claims on a number of different factors, and one of them happens to be initial treatment.
If you didn't seek medical attention after the collision, it may give the insurance company reason to believe that you weren't actually hurt. While this may not necessarily be true, they will typically do or say whatever they can to ensure that your claim is settled for as little money as possible. In some cases, you may not even realize that you have been injured until you undergo a thorough examination, so you should not hesitate to take this important step as soon as possible. From there, your next course of action should be to get in touch with a Dallas personal injury attorney at Lenahan Law Firm.
