Don’t Delay Treatment
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, but aren’t sure if it’s serious enough to seek medical attention, you may want to err on the side of caution, and get checked out.
Orlando personal injury attorney Charlie Draper says after a car accident, the adrenaline is pumping, and you may not even realize the extent of your injuries so once the paramedics show up at the scene, make sure they document any pain or discomfort you are feeling.
Then you can decide whether to go to the hospital immediately or wait a few days.
But Charlie says waiting could give the insurance company an excuse to minimize, or even deny your claim.
What we typically hear from insurance professionals adjusters well your client didn’t go to the hospital by ambulance that day, and you know that’s silly because not everyone is hurting so bad that they need to be taken to the hospital.
Charlie also says you must be examined within 14 days to make sure you are eligible for the entire pip benefit of ten thousand dollars if you need it.
Be sure you tell the treating doctor about everything that hurts and how badly, all over your body. That documentation can be critical down the road.
