Why Medical Care Is Important to Car Accident Claims

If you have been involved in a car accident, it is essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Unfortunately, many car accident victims don’t know the value of medical care, not just for their health, but for their car accident claims. 

Let us provide the guidance you need at this confusing time. The attorneys of Conway, Pauley & Johnson P.C. have years of experience dealing with the big insurers and will work hard to get you the best outcome for your case.

Evidence for Your Insurance Settlement 

Not only will medical care help you recover from your injuries more quickly, the insurance company is less likely to deny liability. If you have evidence of immediate medical care, that evidence can support your claim in court. 

For example, if you’re rushed to the emergency room and doctors diagnose a broken leg, it’s much more difficult for an insurance company to argue that their insured client didn’t cause you harm. 

Sometimes car accident victims think they have done everything they can to avoid a denial from the insurance company but are shocked to learn they’ve been denied compensation anyway. Taking this step can help you avoid denial. 

Your Doctor Can Help Your Claim

Your medical provider will assist you in obtaining your medical records so your attorney can get those records to the insurance company sooner rather than later. 

Your doctor may also provide an opinion on the cause of your injuries and aid in estimating the care you need in the future. They have the tools and experience to make an educated estimate of how injuries like brain trauma and spinal cord damage will heal over time. 

Delayed Injuries 

One of the most common misconceptions about injuries caused by car accidents is that they are immediately obvious. 

Auto collisions often cause soft tissue injuries, such as neck strains and back sprains. These types of injuries often don’t become apparent right away but can develop days or even weeks after an accident. If you don’t seek timely treatment, these types of injuries could become more serious and lead to complications later.

Documentation to Support Your Claim

It’s possible that you could miss time from work while recovering from your injuries. If this happens, records of all of those appointments with doctors and physical therapists can help support your claim.  

This medical care can be documented as part of your claim for compensation later when your personal injury attorney is filing suit against whoever caused the car accident. 

Speak to a Car Accident Attorney About Your Care

In short, seeking medical care immediately after a car accident can be vital to your car accident claim. A doctor can provide an opinion as to the cause of your injuries and their impact on your life. This helps not just with insurance claims, but also with lawsuits against negligent parties.
