Why do I have to see a doctor after a car accident?

If you’re hurt in a car accident, you’ll have to seek immediate medical treatment. Even if you don’t feel significantly injured at first, it’s always best to play it safe and see a doctor/go to the hospital, as certain injuries can take a couple of days, or even longer, to set in. Your health is the top priority, and the best thing you can do for yourself is seek medical attention at once. Additionally, if you were hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of another, seeing a doctor can also bolster your future personal injury claim. Your doctor will provide you with medical documentation detailing exactly what your injuries are and how they occurred. You will also receive medical bills, detailing the financial cost of your injury, which we can use to help prove the extent of the damages you’ve sustained.

What else should I do after sustaining an injury in a car accident?

After an accident, especially one that wasn’t your fault, you should do what you can to document all facets of the incident. This includes calling the police, obtaining witness contact information, taking pictures of any damage to vehicles, asking witnesses for their contact information, and more. Finally, you should make it a point to speak with a knowledgeable Jacksonville personal injury lawyer who can help you gather and present all other information needed to win your rightful compensation in a personal injury claim.
