Should I see a doctor after a crash?

Yes. Not all accident injuries are apparent in the moments after a collision. Immediate medical attention may be essential to detect problems that are difficult to detect, such as internal bleeding or traumatic brain injuries. Both noticeable and hidden symptoms deserve a doctor's opinion and urgent treatment, if necessary.

However, seeing a doctor immediately can also help your case if you later choose to file a personal injury claim. Medical diagnoses, records and treatment recommendations may directly connect your injuries to the accident. Your doctor can examine the extent of physical damage you suffered, which can inform the court regarding the amount of fair compensation that you deserve.

What are the benefits of having an attorney?

Although a lawyer may not be necessary for minor car accidents, legal support can be a vital tool for a person who faces severe crash injuries. Not only can an attorney advocate for your needs in court, but they can assist you throughout the process of seeking relief for your damages.

At our firm, one of our experienced lawyers can help you:

  • File your claim and manage related paperwork
  • Gather factual evidence and testimonies to support your claim
  • Understand the terms of a settlement offer and decide whether settling may be in your best interest
  • Communicate and negotiate with insurance companies

The financial impact of a serious accident can be immense. When facing high medical expenses to treat your injuries, an attorney can help you obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your case.
