When you have been involved in an accident, you may not fully realize the impact your injuries can have on a case. An Atlanta personal injury attorney may be able to help.
Here are 4 misconceptions victims may have pertaining to their injuries after an accident:
- if I don’t have any obvious injuries after my accident, I must not have a legitimate claim;
- the crash would have to be serious in order to result in severe injuries;
- I can skip seeking medical treatment after an accident; and
- it’s okay if I miss some of my follow-up appointments or stop treatment sooner than recommended.
First, injuries aren’t always immediately obvious. Second, even low-impact crashes can cause significant damage.
Third, seeking medical care immediately after an accident is important. Lastly, if you miss appointments or stop treatment too soon, the insurance company will hold this against you. It could diminish your compensation or even eliminate it.
Knowing some of the other auto accident misconceptions can help if you were involved in an accident in Atlanta. It may protect your rights and your claim.
