Q: Im Not Sure About the Extent of My Georgia Truck Accident Injuries. Is It Important for Me to See a Doctor Right Away or Can I Wait and See How I Feel Later?
A:Our Atlanta truck accident lawyers recommend that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible after your crash. We offer this advice for two reasons. First, and foremost, you may have suffered injuries that are not yet resulting in painful symptoms. A doctor can examine you, provide appropriate treatment, and in many cases prevent your injuries from worsening.
Second, insurance companies may see your delay of treatment as a reason to try to deny your claim. Many insurers will argue that your injuries couldn’t have been that serious, or you would have seen a doctor sooner. We don’t want you to have to deal with the headaches and possible reduction in legal damages that this may cause.
Instead, we urge you to see a medical doctor as soon as possible after your Atlanta tractor-trailer accident, and we encourage you to call an Atlanta truck crash lawyer at 770.518.1133 or via our online contact form.
