Automobile accidents can be a terrifying experience that leave victims confused and unsure of what steps to take next. Health concerns should always be at the forefront, but when is it the right time to seek medical attention? David Greene recently talked to Joe Emer of Studio 10 addressing this important issue.
Importance of Seeking Medical Attention
If there’s damage to any vehicle involved in a crash, it’s important to seek medical treatment to ensure that you are okay and to document your involvement in the accident. Even if you don’t feel any immediate effects or injuries, it’s very important to see a doctor.
You don’t have to go to the emergency room. Our area has many urgent care facilities that make it easy to get checked out by a professional. Often symptoms of injuries might only become apparent several weeks or even a month after you are in a wreck. It might be a numb hand or a ruptured disc that went unnoticed initially. Simply getting checked out ensures that you have documented your involvement in the crash, and it helps protect your interest in any future legal or insurance matters.
Dealing with Medical Costs
The fear of medical costs shouldn’t deter anyone from seeking necessary medical treatment after a car accident. There are several hospitals in the area that will provide treatment even if you don’t have health insurance. The lawyers of Greene & Phillips can also connect you with doctors and other medical treatment that can be provided with no upfront costs through a letter of protection.
The most important thing after a crash is to make sure you’re okay, that you get well, and you’re fairly compensated.
Working with a Personal Injury Lawyer
Talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after you accident. They can guide you through the complex process, even if you may decide you don’t need a lawyer ultimately. The right legal guidance ensures that you’re not only fairly compensated for a wreck that wasn’t your fault, but also that your long-term health needs are adequately taken care of.
