Are You Eligible to File a Claim for Injuries Related to Camp Lejeune?
Can the insurance company deny my claim if I don’t seek medical attention immediately after the accident?
If you’ve been involved in an accident and you didn’t seek medical attention right away, you may be wondering if the insurance company can deny your claim as a result. While it’s true that seeking medical attention as soon as possible after an accident can help support your claim, it’s not necessarily true that your claim will be denied if you don’t seek immediate medical attention.
Here’s what you need to know about seeking medical attention and insurance claims:
- Seeking medical attention is important: Even if you don’t think you’re injured after an accident, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Some injuries may not become apparent until days or even weeks after the accident, and failing to seek medical attention can make it more difficult to establish a causal link between your injuries and the accident.
- The insurance company may try to use your delay against you: If you don’t seek medical attention right away, the insurance company may try to use your delay against you. They may argue that you weren’t really injured or that your injuries weren’t caused by the accident. However, it’s important to remember that you still have legal rights and that you can still pursue a claim even if you didn’t seek immediate medical attention.
- You can still pursue a claim: Even if you didn’t seek immediate medical attention, you can still pursue a claim for your injuries. However, you may need to work with an experienced personal injury attorney to help establish the link between your injuries and the accident. Your attorney can help you gather evidence, work with medical experts, and build a strong case for compensation.
