Not seeing a physician as soon as possible after being in an auto accident is a serious mistake. Those that opt to “tough it out” may end up having serious trouble paying their medical bills if and when they ultimately face reality and go see a doctor.
When all is said and done, there are two major reasons accident victims should make a trip to their health care provider their number one priority after the accident.
1. The first and most important reason is that by delaying a trip to an experienced health care provider, an accident victim could be unwittingly contributing to serious and long-term damage to their well being. Minor symptoms such as aches, pains, dizziness, stiffness, sudden mood swings, etc., could all be indicative of everything from soft tissue damage to a serious brain injury.
2. The second reason an accident victim should get to a doctor as soon as possible is because by delaying getting treatment, they could seriously affect—in a negative way—the amount of money an insurance company will pay them as compensation in the event of a claim.
