When Should I Receive Medical Treatment?

If you have been injured in a car accident or you have been injured due to another’s negligence, it is important to seek medical treatment immediately. Frequently insurance adjusters will deny medical treatment association with a car accident, if the time period between treatment and the accident is too distant.

Commonly individuals who feel sore or suffer from moderate pain from a car accident will wait a couple of weeks before seeking medical treatment. The reason being either they get caught up with the demands of life or hope that the pain will eventually go away with time. Although this can be a sensible reason for waiting to seek treatment. Generally these types of arguments will be unsuccessful in trying to influence the adjuster. Please call the attorneys at Meyerkord & Kurth if you have questions regarding your personal injury claim.
