Seek medical attention immediately! Even if you do not feel as if you are seriously injured, it is in your best interest to see a physician as soon as possible. Go to an emergency room, urgent care, medical doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist. Medical providers can determine injury to your body whether it is initially visible or felt. By seeking immediate medical attention, you protect your health, document your injuries, and prevent the insurance company from arguing that you were not really injured. If you wait to seek treatment, it will allow the insurance companies to argue that you weren’t hurt in the accident, and you later decided to go to the doctor because of your pending claim. Also, it may allow the insurance company to argue that you may have been hurt in the interim time between the accident and your late visit to the doctor.
