Always seek a medical opinion after a car accident

We all know that experiencing a car accident is a risk that we all undertake in the course of living our lives. Motor vehicles are everywhere, and even if you have never been in a car accident, you have probably seen one occur.

An unfortunate by-product of living with motor vehicle technology is that some of us may dismiss seemingly minor accidents. This could have a detrimental effect on your health and your legal options.

We have seen how even minor fender benders can result in a great amount of suffering. Complicating the issue, many people feel fine after an accident and choose not to get a medical opinion.

Insurance providers as well as the driver who caused the accident may try to diminish the seriousness of your injuries in any claim that you file. This means that it can be almost impossible to claim that you were injured without proof. We would like to see our fellow Georgians begin to take what seems like minor car accidents more seriously. The first step for these victims is to see a doctor immediately or as soon as possible following an accident. This protects victims in several ways, including:

  • Helps you identify any injuries that may not manifest right away
  • Helps prevent insurance companies from discrediting your injury claim
  • Aids in your efforts to seek compensation through the legal system

In short, documenting your medical check-up and any injuries you have suffered always helps your case no matter what legal remedy you choose to pursue. Our website contains additional information about car accidents and injury claims.
