Hurt But Don’t Want to See Doctor – Personal Injury Lawyers

I’m Hurt But Don’t Want to See Doctor. Should I wait?

No. If you are injured from a car accident or other personal injury,  you should seek medical care immediately and follow your doctor’s advice. Often after an accident, injured people will try to put up with the pain and not seek the treatment they need. This is a grave mistake for two reasons. First, you might prolong your recovery and or make your injury worse. Furthermore, not going to the doctor is often used by insurance companies as an excuse to deny compensation. They will claim that you didn’t seek medical treatment because you weren’t really injured. Again, if you are hurt, see your doctor and follow your doctor’s advice as to treatment. Failure to seek prompt medical attention will negatively affect your personal injury lawsuit.
