Why It’s Essential That You Seek Medical Care Immediately after a Motor Vehicle Accident
Whether you’ve been in a serious auto accident or a fender-bender, if injured, it’s critical that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident. Don’t think that because you’re still moving under your own power that you won’t experience debilitating injuries as a result of the crash. Whether it’s a trip to the emergency room at the hospital, a stop at an urgent care facility, or a visit to your family doctor, the sooner you seek medical care the better. Its always better to get checked out. Here are some of the reasons why.
With Early Detection You’ll Have a Better Chance at a Full Physical Recovery
Medical professionals agree that the sooner you get treatment after a motor vehicle accident, the greater the likelihood that you’ll maximize your recovery from any injuries. With traumatic injuries, time can often be of the essence. The sooner you seek treatment, the better chance you have of making a full recovery from your injuries. In addition, you’ll be able to obtain medications to minimize the pain and suffering caused by the accident.
Certain types of injury are not as obvious as others. You may have sprained, pulled or torn muscles, tendons or ligaments, but be unaware of it. This is especially true if you have more serious injuries, such as a broken bone or lacerations. When you seek immediate medical attention, doctors and nurses can diagnose injuries that may not be as apparent.
No-Fault Benefits After An Accident
The sooner you seek medical care, the sooner you’ll have documentation that your injuries were caused by the motor vehicle accident. There are time limitations for filing for No-Fault Benefits, available through auto insurance, as a result of an accident. You cannot wait for months and then decide to notify the auto insurance carrier that you were injured as a result of a car accident.
