Whether you need medical care after a car accident is up to you and your doctor, if you decide to see one.
Sometimes there’s no question following a wreck: you’re bleeding, a bone is obviously broken, you can’t remember what happened, etc.
Other times, your pain may not be severe, or an even be non-existent. Even insurance companies know that the adrenalin from the shock of a wreck can mask muscle and joint pain for hours. You may not even start to feel pain for a day or two.
Whatever the situation, the point is this: YOU are the one who knows how you feel. Don’t let an insurance adjuster talk you out of getting treatment, and don’t let a lawyer talk you into getting treatment. Make up your own mind.
If you’re sore or simply feel out-of-sorts, a trip to an urgent care or your family doctor is always going to be faster and cheaper than going to an emergency room.
You don’t have to have a personal injury claim to have a claim for damages to your vehicle, but that sort of property damage claim is something you can handle on your own about 95% of the time.
