Accidents happen even at fault car accident
That’s why we have insurance

Nobody plans for accidents or injuries. However, we do plan and pay for medical insurance that can be used if we become injured or ill.  If you get an infection, you don’t give a second thought to seeing a doctor for an antibiotic. Yet, many car accident patients- particularly those who were at fault, often refuse medical help following their car accident. Unfortunately, they may later develop long-term medical complications from their injuries.

It doesn’t matter if you were the person at fault in the car accident or not, if you’ve been injured in a car crash, you should report your injuries to a medical physician as soon as possible.  Even if you do not expect to need medical care, reporting your injuries and protecting your rights that are guaranteed by the auto insurer is critical to your current and future health.

Don’t lose your right to access healthcare.

If you fail to document your injuries within 14 days of the accident, no matter how minor they may seem, you forfeit the medical benefits you’ve been paying for over the past several years through your auto insurance. Worst yet, if those minor injuries go on to become major disabilities or long-term pain issues, you’ll be responsible for all medical bills regarding your care if you don’t report your injuries within 14 days of the crash.

Oftentimes, pain is not apparent immediately following a car crash. However, that doesn’t mean you should not discuss your health following your car accident with a medical doctor.

Do I need an attorney if I was involved in a car accident?

No, if you were at fault most attorneys won’t even talk to you.  Attorneys are more interested in the non-fault party in a collision, but that doesn’t mean if you were at fault that you don’t deserve to have access to medical care.

Although we all see our insurance rates increase year after year, it is not legal for the insurance company to increase your rates based on an injury following a car accident.  This fear of increased rates is the primary reason most injured patients who are at fault fail to report their medical status following a car accident.

What if I do not feel I need medical care following my car accident?

If you report your medical status following a car accident and feel you do not need medical or rehab care then you don’t get medical or rehab care.  Once the initial report is filed, you have the choice of seeking our medical care at a later date or doing nothing at all. The important key here is that you report your medical status following the collision so that you can choose what you want to do in terms of current or future medical care.
