The Importance of Going to the Hospital After an Accident
Most of the time, the aftermath of a car accident is chaotic and does not leave you with much time to gather yourself to understand what has just transpired. What you may not realize is that your body responds to the shock and stress of an accident by producing adrenaline to cushion the impact of what you have just experienced. It is because of this phenomenon that you may not realize the full extent of your injuries, which is why it is absolutely crucial that you go to the hospital after an accident—whether or not you feel completely unharmed.
In some cases, people do not recognize or sense any injuries until hours or even days after the incident. Once the shock of the crash has worn off, you may soon discover a whole host of symptoms that previously did not register with you. Ignoring these indications could not only harm your chances of a future claim, but it could be a deadly mistake.
Avoid Insurance Denials By Seeking Medical Attention
If you find yourself pursuing compensation for your medical expenses or your loss of work or wages, having a paper trail to link your medical issues to the accident will further build your claim. By wasting no to time to see a physician, you are collecting proof of your need for financial compensation and preventing the opposition from arguing the validity or timing of your injury.
Hidden Injuries Can Be Fatal
Traumatic brain injuries can be silent killers. Without thorough diagnostic testing, you cannot be rule out internal bleeding or other deadly consequences. Even the slightest feelings of dizziness, numbness, or pain must be examined to give you the peace of mind you deserve.
