Question: Should I go to the doctor?
Yes. After a car accident you should see a doctor, even if you feel okay.
Many times you will not physically feel your injuries until 12 to 24 hours after the accident. If you do not go to the doctor, the driver's insurance company will use this against you. They will say you were not really hurt.
After your first doctor's visit do the following:
- Follow your doctor's advice
- Do not miss an appointment
- Each time you go to the doctor, remind them you were in a car accident
- Tell the doctor about all of the things that hurt or do not feel right, no matter how minor
If you delay your treatment or miss an appointment it can hurt your case. The driver's insurance company will use this against you. A light headache, tingling, or even dizziness may be evidence of something more serious.
