Is it recommended to visit a doctor after being rear-ended, even if I don’t feel injured at the time of the accident?

After a car accident, it is quite common not to feel immediate pain or symptoms.  We often hear clients tell us that after the adrenaline wears off, they begin to feel quite sore and achy. In some cases, injuries from a car accident may not be immediately apparent, and symptoms may not develop until several hours or even days after the accident. Here are some of the reasons why you should visit a doctor after being rear-ended:

  • Early diagnosis: A healthcare professional can diagnose any injuries that may not be immediately apparent.
  • Preventing long-term damage: Getting prompt medical attention can help prevent long-term damage from injuries.
  • Documentation: A doctor’s visit can also provide documentation of any injuries you may have suffered, which can be important if you need to file a personal injury claim later on.
  • Peace of mind: Visiting a doctor after being rear-ended can give you peace of mind and ensure that you have done everything possible to protect your health and well-being.

If you have been rear-ended, it is also important to document the accident as thoroughly as possible. This includes taking photos of any damage to your vehicle, collecting contact information from any witnesses, and getting a copy of the driver’s exchange.
