If I Don’t Feel Immediate Pain, Should I Still See a Doctor?

doctor checking patientOne of the most difficult things to endure after a crash or any other negligence-related incident is the physical hardship associated with the injuries. However, there are very complicated matters that may arise as some injuries are not immediate. Even more, there are some situations in which shock and adrenaline make it so pain is not felt immediate.

If you don’t feel immediate pain, you may not think it is necessary to get medical care. However, this can be problematic, especially if you report to the insurance company that you are fine and feel no pain. It’s important for you to know what steps to take.

Report Your Plans to the Insurance Company

You want to be sure you’re letting the insurance company know that you have plans to seek medical care as you may be feeling some soreness or admitting the potential of latency pains. Let the insurance company know that you intend to see a doctor to monitor your potential injuries.

If you tell your insurance provider you’re going to wait for medical care, they will recognize that medical problems may still remain an issue.

Still Get Medical Attention

You may not feel pain immediately, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re not suffering from an injury beneath the surface. By going to a doctor, you can get checked out immediately and the doctor may determine if you have an injury.

With medical attention, you can start your treatment and get the help you need to recover. Furthermore, you can get medical records that help to show you suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s negligent actions.

Make sure you explain your condition as best as possible to your doctor and create a plan that best suits your needs.
