After A Car Wreck
If you have any concern at all that you are injured, then seek immediate medical attention. If you wait to go to the doctor, then you can be assured that the insurance company will try and blame you for your injury. They will argue that you could not have been hurt in the collision because you waited four days to see a doctor, even though people often wait up to seven days to see a doctor after an orthopedic injury. Don’t give them the ammo to attack you, see a doctor immediately if you think you might be injured.
Review the police report and make sure it is accurate. An incorrect or incomplete police report can make it harder to prove your case. In a worst case scenario, it can make it seem like you were the at fault driver instead of the victim. Always make sure the police report is accurate.
Write down everything the other driver said to you after the collision, so you do not have to worry about forgetting what they said. Often at fault drivers will admit to speeding or texting or other bad behaviour at the scene of the accident but then will later change their story once they are required to help defend the claim by their insurance company.
Follow your doctor’s treatment advice. If you are not getting better ask for a second opinion or visit another doctor, but do not just stop medical treatment against your doctor’s advice. If you do this, then it is guaranteed that it will be held against you and lower the value of your claim.
