Seeking a thorough medical evaluation immediately after an accident is not only important to your health, but is also crucial in documenting your injuries. Accurately diagnosing an injury as soon as possible can provide for immediate treatment and the quickest recovery.
More importantly, creating a causal connection between the accident and injury directly affects the amount of compensation an insurance adjuster will offer. The lack of documentation, or delays in documenting the injuries, will often lead to the insurance adjuster minimizing the extent of the injuries and ultimately result in a lower settlement offer. As a result, seeking immediate medical attention is imperative for preserving your claims for compensation.
