If I don't feel injured after an automobile accident, do I have to see a doctor?
Automobile accidents are increasingly becoming a way by which many people loose their lives or receive very serious injuries. Automobile or car accidents can also cause much more emotional and physiological damages than physical. When an accident happen and victim of that accident decides to go straight home instead of seeking medical attention, this sometimes leads to a serious medical complication. There are many unfortunate deaths resulting from accident victims bypassing medical attention and then later dying due to head trauma or internal bleeding. Whether you were the party at fault or not, we encourage you to seek medical treatment after an accident if you are hurt at all, or go straight to the hospital after the automobile accident.
People refuse medical care if they do not see broken bones or blood stains. Often times the adrenalin will mask pain, soft tissue injuries or head trauma. There are so many reasons why it is important to go see the doctor immediately after an automobile accident even if you do nor feel any pain or feel injured. Many people delay seeking medical attention until the next day when they begin to feel the pain of a hidden injury.
Visiting a doctor is necessary to diagnosis any injury or avoid any hidden injury that could be a danger to your well being. Also it is important to help document your accident and injuries in the event you sustained an internal injury found later by your doctor. Be sure to seek the services of an experienced car accident attorney to learn about your legal rights, including any rights to compensation, and to find out what steps need to be taken and deadlines complied with to protect those legal rights.
