Don’t Wait to See a Doctor or File a Personal Injury Claim for Accident Injuries

Waiting to seek medical care after an accident may damage the potential to file a personal injury claim later. Why? Because the insurance company will be skeptical as to why the victim didn’t seek medical attention sooner. This is why, victims of car accidents, should still seek emergency care if he or she doesn’t feel that it’s necessary. Not only can the medical visit help preserve an injury claim if one is pursued, but it can also benefit if internal bleeding is present, which can save the victim’s life.

Accident victims can consult an Atlanta personal injury attorney soon after their accident to review legal options for filing an injury claim. If injuries are not noticed until years after the accident, they can still consult an attorney to go over eligibility to file a claim based on the discovery rule. An attorney at the Law Office of Jason R. Schultz can help determine the viability of a claim, even if months have past after the accident and injuries are just now being discovered.
