Should I Seek Medical Attention After an Accident?

When you’ve been in an accident, it’s easy to look at your potential medical bills and think “how am I going to pay for this?” We assure you that getting checked by a doctor is to your benefit. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean your body isn’t experiencing it. Delayed symptoms are very common! Adrenaline has a way of masking the severity of your injuries, so it is important to get checked. If finances are at the top of mind, remember that the no-fault laws in Florida ensure that all medical expenses are covered through PIP (Personal Injury Protection). 

If you choose to move forward with an injury claim, not only would the medical care you’ve already received be covered, you would also be compensated for:

  • Projected future medical care
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Past and future economic losses

The Cappy Law team is dedicated to seeing you make a full recovery physically and financially! Seeking medical attention immediately after an accident will give our attorneys the information and evidence they need to fight for the compensation you deserve, as you recover physically! It is especially important to reach out to a personal injury attorney if you’ve suffered an injury that required you to take time off work, spend personal out of pocket monies, or are  hospitalized. 

What if I don’t want to get checked out after my accident? 

By opting out of immediate medical attention, you are increasing your risk of long term negative effects on your body if you have internal injuries. Your insurance company can also claim that your injuries were not serious enough to be covered. Therefore, denying your claim.
