Many car crashes or accident victims make the mistake of not getting treatment right after an accident for car accident injuries.
Sometimes, victims refuse treatment from emergency personnel or being taken to the emergency room for examination. Most people, while in the midst of adrenaline immediately following an accident, think they will not need medical attention. As a result, it could take longer to recover from an injury.
Failing to get medical treatment can also affect the value of your injury case.
In fact, the longer you wait to get medical treatment and document your injuries, the more harm it can cause the value of your case. Insurance companies routinely argue that a delay in medical treatment indicates accident victims may not have been as hurt as they may claim.
