The Importance of Receiving Medical Treatment After a Slip & Fall

At the first hint of injury, it is crucial to protect your health and your legal rights by seeking medical attention. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident due to dangerous property conditions, please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated Manhattan slip and fall lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about the importance of seeking medical treatment after an accident.

Why should you seek medical treatment after a slip and fall accident?

The reasons you should obtain medical attention promptly after an accident are as follows:

  • Protect your health: Seemingly insignificant symptoms can indicate a serious injury, and whatever is wrong is likely to get worse if left untreated. Get prompt medical attention after an accident if you feel even the slightest level of discomfort or pain.
  • Medical care confirms your injuries: You will need evidence to back up the assertions in your personal injury claim and the other side will want more than your word as to the nature and extent of your injuries, but until you see a medical professional, you do not have a complete picture of your harm.
  • Medical treatment can help establish causation: The longer you wait to see a doctor after an accident, the easier it is for someone else to argue that your injury was not caused by the accident.
  • Waiting can make your injury seem less severe: By waiting to see a doctor, you are inviting questions about the seriousness of your injuries.
  • Waiting can reduce your settlement: Without knowing the full extent of your injuries or what the medical costs will be to treat them, a settlement check might seem more generous than it really is.

By receiving timely medical attention, you set yourself and your personal injury claim on the path to a more favorable possible outcome. If you have any other questions, please call our highly competent firm today. We are here to fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled, every step of the way. With us in your corner, you can have peace of mind, knowing your case is in good hands.
