Get Necessary Medical Care After Your Car Accident
If you are in a serious car accident, medical services will most likely come to the scene and offer medical care. Emergency transportation services will take you to the hospital if you need further care.
But, what about minor accidents? Should you still seek medical treatment if you’re able to walk and move independently after your accident and there’s no obvious injury?
Always Get Medical Treatment
In an accident, you might not even realize you’re hurt or in pain right after the accident. One of the biggest reasons behind this is when you’re in a flight or fight incident your body produces hormones called endorphins.
Endorphins plus adrenaline can make it seem like you aren’t in pain or hurt because they mask the pain until your body and mind have had time to recover.
Car accident survivors often don’t feel pain right away, but hours later may process the fact that they’re experiencing extreme pain and even limited mobility. Even if you think you’re okay right after an accident, it’s important to seek medical care to address issues that may not be immediately evident.
Continue Treatment Until You’re Told to Stop
After a car accident, your doctor will diagnose you and your injuries. This is also the time when medical care and treatment begins. Whether they suggest rest and relaxation, taking off work, taking certain medications, seeing a specialist, or anything else, it’s important to closely follow the treatment plan of your physician. There are 3 reasons for this.
All of these pieces of information are proof and can be used when you file a claim against the person responsible for the accident.
