If you are involved in an accident, it is very likely the initial shock
of the accident and subsequent adrenaline rush will make it difficult
to determine the extent of your accident-related injuries. You may not
feel any pain or believe you sustained any significant injury so you might
refuse treatment at the scene of the accident. You don't bother going
to see your doctor as, at that moment, you do not feel the need. The problem
with this is the accident may have caused internal harm and other injuries
which will only be detected if you see a doctor. Failing to see a doctor
will make it harder, but not impossible, to prove your injuries were caused
as a direct result of the accident. In these types of cases the party
responsible for causing your injuries can easily argue that your injuries
must have been caused in some other way, as if you had truly been injured
in the accident, you would have seen a doctor right away.
Not all accident victims will feel immediate pain or discomfort following
an accident. Some victims will not have any symptoms appear until days
or even weeks after the accident. When this happens, the most important
thing you can do is hire a skilled personal injury lawyer from Simmons,
