Car accidents are capable of causing all different types of injuries depending on a variety of factors. The speed at which the vehicles are traveling, the types of vehicles involved in the accident, whether the accident is a single-vehicle accident or multi-vehicle accident and much more can all contribute to the severity of an accident victim's injuries. If you have been involved in a car accident it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible following your accident. We are well aware that not all injuries will present themselves immediately following a car accident. Internal injuries, whiplash, nerve damage and other trauma may not present a problem until days or weeks later. For that reason, even if you believe you only sustained minor injuries, going to your doctor immediately after an accident is a way to protect yourself and see that you are not unnecessarily subjected to further harm and injury.

Failing to go to the doctor immediately after an accident can also present legal problems in the event you want to file a claim to pursue damages either immediately or at a later date. If you choose not to seek urgent medical care the insurance company will argue that your injuries must not be substantial since you declined immediate medical attention. They may also use the fact that you did not go see a doctor to deny your claim, withhold compensation to which you may have a valid need or contend that the injuries you claim happened in the accident could have actually been sustained days afterwards.
