Often, when someone is in a car accident they feel overwhelmed by the pain from their injury, the loss of their car that was either totaled, or in the auto body repair shop for weeks, and the absolute disruption of their routine. Sometimes people injured in car accidents, although hurt and in pain, do not get any medical treatment, or just go to the hospital and that is the only medical provider they see for their injuries.
The reasons for this can vary from the simple fact that they now have no transportation to get to their doctor or chiropractor, work or child care obligations prevent scheduling an appointment, or they just assume that their injury will get better over time.
If you are in a car accident, it is crucial you make sure that you and your loved ones have been seen by a doctor, and you get the medical treatment you need.
Your doctor is the medical expert that documents what injuries you have suffered, and what you went through as the result of the negligence of the driver that hit you.
Your doctor can also document that you were physically unable to work because of the accident, your future medical needs, and any degree of permanent impairment.
If your case has to go to court, your doctor will testify to a jury about your injuries so that they know what you went through when they consider what to award you.
Some folks may think they cannot afford to take the time to see a doctor, but the reality is that they cannot afford not to.
