Should You See a Doctor After an Auto Accident?
Injuries from an auto accident often take days or weeks to appear
The question that our Tampa accident attorneys are often asked is, "If I have been involved in a car accident should I see a physician even if I don’t think I’m hurt?" That's a difficult question to answer. Many times people are involved in automobile accidents and are not injured, or feeling the effects of an injury right away. What that means is you might feel fine the day of the accident, and fell fine the next day too, but unfortunately many weeks or months later you may feel the residual effects of the accident.
Our Tampa accident attorneys recommend if you're involved in an automobile accident, see a competent physician and get checked out sooner than later. Since 1971, our accident attorneys have helped injured accident victims throughout the Tampa Bay area recover the compensation they need. We handle auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, boating accidents and all types of personal injury cases.
Remember, if you are involved in an auto accident, the injuries that arise from that accident may not reveal themselves for several weeks or months. It is always important to get check out, which may involve getting X-rays, MRIs, or other diagnostic studies to determine if you have some latent injuries that you were not aware of. If you are injured and it was not your fault in the automobile accident, you may be compensated for your injuries. If you have a question, see an auto accident lawyer who practices in the area of PI or Personal Injury. He or she can advice you to see a physician, get checked out, and advice you whether or not a claim may be right for you.
