If you’ve been injured, the first thing you need to do is take care of your health. Your health and getting medical attention should be your number one priority. And seeking prompt medical attention can also help with your legal case. There is a lot of information a doctor can gather from examining someone shortly after something happened, that might not necessarily be as easy to figure out later on. Insurance companies do a lot of victim-blaming; “if they were hurt so badly why did they wait to seek medical attention”. As if people are supposed to be able to see the future and know right away what sort of injury is temporary and what sort indicates a more serious permanent problem. Or that everyone has so much free time and money that it’s no issue to drop everything to see a doctor. So, for your health and to help document any important medical evidence, go to a doctor and get checked out.
First things first, if you’ve suffered an accident or had something happen to you where you’ve been injured. The most important thing is your health, this is not really legal advice but it’s important and it’s practical. Your health should be your first priority. And that is actually important if whatever happened turns into a lawsuit. There are a lot of things that if you go to a hospital or go to a doctor and seek medical attention immediately that the doctor can do or can diagnose and figure out that might not be so clear later on. That makes it a lot harder for an insurance company to tell you that none of this is from the accident they are responsible for when you have an emergency room visit where the doctor is explaining why your problems are from the accident.
