Should I go see a doctor?
If you suspect you have been injured in a car crash, you should seek medical attention right away. No one likes to go see the doctor. Most of the time, if something hurts, we want to wait to see if it will get better.
But with injury cases, insurance companies will use the fact that you did not seek treatment against you. They will say that it means you were not hurt, or that during the “gap” where you did not seek treatment, something else caused your injuries.
So if you are injured, it is important that you seek treatment, and that you have a medical professional diagnose your injuries and recommend treatment. Then, you must follow there commendations of your medical provider. Most people are worried about how they will pay for medical care.
