Why You Should Get a Medical Check After an Accident

Getting into an accident, whether it is an auto accident, a trip and fall accident or some other accident, is never a good thing and there is no such thing as a convenient time to be in an accident! If you are the victim of an accident, whether you were at fault or not, it is important that you get the medical care you need. Many people focus on reporting the accident to their insurance company, getting repairs made to their damaged property, and a dozen other things. However, ignoring your medical care can be one of the worst mistakes you can make. Here are the reasons why most accident attorneys in St Petersburg FL encourage you to get a medical check after an accident:

Insurance- most insurance plans have a small window of time where they will cover injuries caused by an accident or cover the treatments needed for those injuries. Usually it is 2 weeks or less, so if you wait too long you may discover injuries that will not be covered by your insurance policy!

Medical- for obvious injuries, urgent medical care is needed, and it is critical that you get seen as soon as possible.  Injuries to the head and spine can quickly worsen if they are left untreated. If there are any suspected internal injuries or broken bones immediate care can save your life!

Treatments- the only way to know what care and treatment you may need following your accident is to get checked out by a medical team. Some injuries can take days or weeks to present obvious symptoms, so it is important to get checked out as soon as possible to make sure you really are ok!
