28 Jul I Did Not Go To The Hospital After My Brandon Car Accident, Do I Still Have A Case?
Bloomingdale Ave, SR 60, Brandon Blvd, Lumsden Road… if you are familiar with the Brandon, FL area, you have probably heard of these high traffic roadways. With high traffic comes a greater chance for a car accident. However, due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak, going to the hospital might be a large concern for you. Or, you may feel like you do not have to go to the hospital at the time. Whatever the reason, shortly after your Brandon car accident, your pain may begin to worsen and you wonder, “because I did not go to the hospital right after my Brandon car accident, do I still even have a case?”
Timing Is Everything
Seeking medical attention as soon as possible after a car accident is crucial. Going to the hospital after a Brandon car accident case will not only increase the value of your claim but more so, it is important to evaluate your condition. It shows urgency and can illustrate that the accident was so severe that you required medical attention right away. However, more importantly, car accidents can cause severe injuries to the neck and back, bruises, and lacerations and even more serious injuries such as bone fractures, muscle tears, and concussions/ brain injuries. Therefore, putting the value of your case to the side, it is more important to get checked out to rule out any life-threatening injuries.
Other Medical Treatment
Just because you did not go to the hospital does not mean that you cannot other seek treatment. Many seek treatment from an urgent care, while others may go to their primary care doctor. However, most commonly, many seek what is often to referred to as “conservative treatment” from a chiropractor or physical therapist after their Brandon car accident. More severe back and neck injuries or bone fractures will likely require the attention of an orthopedic doctor. Your health after a car accident is most important, so make sure to get checked out by whichever provider you may see fit, especially if you did not go the hospital.
Do I Still Have A Case If I Did Not Go To The Hospital?
The answer: YES! Although going to the hospital can add value to you claim by showing immediacy and is important to rule out any life-threatening injuries, you absolutely do have a case. It is common for injuries to manifest after an accident. However, if you did not go to the hospital, it is likely that the insurance company may give you a more difficult time resolving your claim. They will try to make arguments such as, “you must have not been that hurt if you did not go to the hospital” or “your injuries must be degenerative if your pain level did not raise to the level where you needed immediate medical treatment.” Therefore, you will need a qualified and experienced Brandon car accident attorney to fight for the compensation that you deserve.
