Do I Have to See a Doctor?

What to do after an accident
You’ve been taken off guard by an accident, be it a car crash, a nasty fall, or any other unexpected injury. When it comes to moving forward, it’s hard to know where to start. Step one is to take care of yourself, and that usually begins by seeing a doctor. Skipping this important step can cause further harm, delay healing, and make it extremely difficult to get any legal compensation that might be available to you. If you have obvious injuries, you clearly need to be seen by a physician. But what happens when you’re not sure? Maybe nothing hurts at the moment, or the pain is minor. Our advice? If you notice any pain or injury at all, or if the accident was serious enough to have potentially caused problems, play it safe and see a doctor.

Why Seeing a Doctor Matters

Receive the care you need. Healing needs to be your first priority. If an EMS was called to the scene of your accident, consider heading to the hospital. Or, after your accident, book an appointment with a doctor as soon as you can. Taking good care of yourself needs to be priority No. 1. Document your symptoms/injury. After an accident, it’s extremely helpful to have a full picture of any physical or emotional harm done. Gaps of time without documentation can make it difficult to build a case. Doctors’ notes will come in very handy if legal action needs to be taken. Have an authoritative view. While it’s critical for you to keep your own medical journal (or notes) after an accident, physicians’ reports are an excellent source, as they are official and objective. Your job is to take the best possible care of yourself. Our job is to help you seek any compensation that you might be owed.
