Do I Need to See a Doctor After a Car Accident?

The unfortunate reality is that car accidents happen every single day here in New York City. That being said, if you are someone who has recently sustained a serious injury in a car accident, it’s paramount that you see a doctor at once, above all else. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer to learn more about these accidents and why it’s so important you see a doctor immediately after sustaining an injury in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Why is it so important to see a doctor after a car accident?

There are various reasons why you must see a doctor after a car accident, but the first, and by far the most important, is your health and well-being. Seeing a doctor after your accident will help ensure your injury is properly treated and that you are on the path to recovery from your injury. Even if you are not immediately seriously injured, the truth is, certain injuries take a couple of days (or longer) to set in, so it’s always best to see a doctor on the same day of your accident. Finally, it’s important to see a doctor because your doctor can document the origin and extent of your injuries, including how much your injuries cost. This information is invaluable when it comes time to bring a personal injury claim (if the accident was not your fault).

What else should I do after being hurt in a car accident?

After a car accident, you should call the police (they will send emergency services to the scene), gather witness contact information, take pictures of any damage caused by the accident, get the other driver’s insurance information, and do whatever you can to further document the facts surrounding the accident. Finally, you should ensure you retain the services of a knowledgeable and dedicated Manhattan car accident lawyer who can work to uncover all additional evidence needed to prove your personal injury claim.
