Many people at collision scenes don’t realize they’re hurt, due to adrenaline and other stress reactions to the wreck itself. However, once they get home or to work, they’ll start to feel pain.
Insurance adjusters are trained to make you feel like you made a mistake by not taking an ambulance from the scene, even if you weren’t in pain. Those same adjusters would argue your bills were unreasonably high if you HAD taken an ambulance.
The key to your medical treatment is understanding how you feel. Even if it’s a day or two later, your personal doctor, an urgent care, or a trip to the ER is never a bad idea.
If you’re hurting, though, you DO need to be checked out sooner rather than later. Adjusters and juries are suspicious of someone who waits several days to be seen after a car wreck, and waiting a week or more can be very hard to explain.
Don’t let the adjusters intimidate you into thinking you don’t have a claim, and certainly don’t let them keep you from getting the treatment you need to get better.
