Being involved in a car accident, no matter how minor, can disrupt your entire life. Especially if you have never experienced a motor vehicle collision, knowing what to do and how to respond can be confusing.
You should go see a doctor after you’ve had an accident as soon as possible. This is true if you believe you have been injured, but it is also true if you feel fine after your automobile accident. Many times, injuries sustained during a car accident are not recognized or noticeable until days or weeks after the accident. This means that even though you feel fine now, you may be suffering from unnoticed, internal injuries. You should always seek medical attention after a car accident. When you go to see the doctor, make sure that you mention any complaint you have, no matter how minor it may seem. You shouldn’t try to be a medical expert and evaluate the importance of a symptom. If you did not cause the car accident, the law allows you to seek and receive compensation for any medical bills you have incurred after the collision that were a result of the accident.
