Receiving Medical Treatment after Car Accident

Importance of Medical Treatment After Car Accident

If you’ve been involved in a rear-end accident and managed to escape without any immediate injury or pain, you should always get medical treatment- just in case! There have been many accident cases where injuries develop after the initial accident and can go undetected which often leads to further medical complications. Whether your accident was at low speed or even high speed but you managed to walk away, we’d always recommend being examined by a doctor as your injuries may be hidden or not causing pain yet.

By the way, we will also help with other problems that have cost you sleep, like getting a rental car very soon and finding a nearby doctor who can help you. Even the best legal team isn’t good enough if your quality of life isn’t sustainable while justice and compensation are on the way. The whole point of legal action is to regain quality of life, so we help you long-term as attorneys and short-term as your go-to people.

Should I Go To A Doctor After A Rear-end Accident?

The short answer is yes. As accident attorneys, we would always recommend seeing a doctor after being involved in a rear-end accident- no matter what speed your accident happened. Maybe you’ve managed to escape uninjured or with superficial scratches, your injuries can still develop over the next few weeks and even months. Seeking proper medical treatment will mean injuries can be spotted or even prevented from developing as they’ll be able to offer advice or preventable treatment such as physiotherapy.

An experienced accident doctor will be able to spot any underlying issues that may not be causing you pain but could have happened as a direct result of being hit from behind and forced forward suddenly. Rear-end accidents are likely to cause injuries such as whiplash and spinal damage that can cause ongoing or long-term pain and discomfort long after an accident.

Rear-end Accident Injuries

Due to the force of vehicles colliding from the rear, many of the injuries are neck, spine, and lower back as your body is forced forward at speed. Whiplash is another common injury with rear-end accidents and sadly brain injuries are also quite common as people often hit their head as a result. Whilst injuries vary depending on the speed and size of the vehicles involved, these types of accidents shouldn’t be ignored.

Treating whiplash, spinal injuries, and brain injuries take a long time and often means large medical bills which need to be considered when you’re building a legal settlement case. Once you’ve found a reliable and experienced accident attorney, they’ll be able to include any ongoing treatment and medical support within your final settlement claim.

Medical Treatment After Car Accident Settlement

If you’ve been involved in a rear-end accident and been injured as a result, you’re probably already out of pocket for your medical bills and ongoing treatment so it’s important to claim to recoup your losses. If you’ve had to miss workdays or endured further costs because of your injuries, make sure to share that with your attorney as they will want to understand just how much money you’ve spent on treatment already.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
