If you are in a car accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you don’t feel much pain right away. You might be too shaken or hyped up immediately after the crash to notice that you are seriously hurt, or you might have an injury that doesn’t present symptoms for a day or two. If you opt not to seek immediate medical treatment after an accident, insurance companies are less likely to believe that the injury was caused by the incident and not by another recent activity or an ongoing condition. As a preventive measure, always have a doctor check you out after you’ve gone through any physical trauma.
