Is It Necessary to Seek Medical Attention Following a Car Accident?

At The Ruth Law Team, our stance is clear: it’s imperative to consult with a healthcare provider as soon as possible after a car accident, ideally on the same day. Undergoing a comprehensive medical evaluation promptly ensures that all injuries, apparent or not, are appropriately documented. This documentation plays a pivotal role in your claim process.

For those asserting injury claims, insurers will require concrete evidence of any injuries sustained. While fractures might be readily identifiable, other injuries like whiplash or brain trauma might not be as immediately apparent.

For instance, concussion symptoms might initially be dismissed as mere shock, yet symptoms such as headaches, ear ringing, vision disturbances, or cognitive difficulties signal the need for immediate medical attention. Similarly, soft tissue injuries need to be recorded by a medical professional. This medical documentation is crucial as tangible evidence of injuries directly resulting from the accident.
