Seek Medical Attention Soon After an Accident

It is important to seek medical attention in a timely manner after an accident otherwise the value of your claim could be diminished. The insurance company will argue that you were not hurt if you do not seek medical attention immediately after an accident.  The insurance company is always trying to reduce the payout on a personal injury claim.

Your health is the number one priority after an accident.  Even if you are not sure whether you need medical attention you should be evaluated by a medical professional to be safe. Sometimes injuries are not initially apparent and bruising often occurs after the accident.

Should you wait to seek medical attention the insurance carrier could argue that either you were not injured or when you finally receive treatment they will argue that maybe you were hurt somewhere else after the accident but before you receive treatment. Also, once you begin treatment for your injuries it is important to consult a medical professional for as long as you are having issues. Large gaps in treatment provide the insurance carrier an argument that your injury was not significant and no longer related to the initial injury.

Insurance companies are always looking for an out and a way to deny or reduce your compensation. The attorneys at White & Choate, LLC are available to discuss your claim and ways to maximize your recovery if you have been injured in an accident.
