Car accidents happen, it’s a fact. But accidents are usually bigger than people realize. The effects can be long-lasting, and not just for the cars themselves, but for the people inside those cars.
One frequent problem we see with auto accident victims is that many people wait to go into the doctor and get checked out, or worse, they see a doctor but ignore their advice.
“I’m fine,” they tell themselves.
But injuries can end up manifesting over the course of time. What might seem like a minor ache can end up turning into something far more painful and stressful as time wears on. This is why it is so important that you get to the doctor and get checked out as soon as the accident occurs, and do exactly as your doctor tells you.
Don’t wait until you start feeling the aches and pains to do something about it. Even if you think you can handle it on your own, you need to see what your doctor says. If they tell you to take it easy and rest for a couple weeks, you need to do it.
Ignoring the advice of your doctor could be one of the worst things you can do. It can often take weeks or months before the injuries start to surface and show you just how bad the accident really was.
This is one of the reasons why the insurance companies often try to get people to settle their claims early. They want you to settle before you have the chance to realize just how bad your injuries really are. Before you know it, you are saddled with an ever-growing number of medical bills and no way to pay them.
Don’t let them rush you. You don’t want to settle your claim until you know what it is that you are really dealing with.
