What To Do If You Were a Victim in a Car Accident
There are three primary steps you need to focus on taking after being involved in a car accident that was not your fault.
The first step should be to call the police and document as much evidence as you can at the scene. This includes gathering witness statements, taking pictures of the damaged vehicles, documenting traffic signals and recording weather conditions.
This evidence, along with a police report from the officer that arrived on scene, can prove extremely valuable during negotiations with the insurance companies.
Your next step should be scheduling an appointment with an accident doctor for a free injury consultation.
The last step is contacting a personal injury attorney for legal advice.
Your first priority should always be protecting your health and well-being, and your second should be protecting your financial well-being.
Why You Should See a Doctor Regardless of the Presence of Pain or Visible Injuries
It is imperative that you see a medical professional after a car accident.
While we recommend scheduling an appointment with an expert accident injury chiropractor who specializes in injuries caused in car accidents, any doctor should be able to diagnose your condition.
Most auto accident victims do not feel pain immediately after their accident unless they suffer a severe, life altering injury. However, this does not mean that most motor vehicle crash victims are not hurt.
The presence of pain after an accident is rare due to the abundant release of adrenaline and other hormones at the time of the accident.
This is the way our body copes with trauma and will temporarily mask the pain you will be feeling in a few days.
So, it is essential to see a chiropractic doctor within 72 hours. They can determine whether you are actually injured and provide professional medical documentation of your injuries and treatments.
This will help hold insurance companies responsible for these expenses, so you do not have to pay out of pocket for injuries you did not cause,
Get your injuries diagnosed early and hold the insurance company responsible for the treatments you require after your wreck.
