After you have suffered serious injuries in a car crash in San Diego, you should seek immediate medical care and then contact a San Diego injury lawyer. If you don't seek immediate medical care, you may give the impression that you are not really injured or concerned about your health.
Even if you think your injuries are minor, you should still get checked out by a doctor after a car crash. A seemingly minor injury could flare up in hours or days, and without treatment, your condition could worsen. Additionally, your injury lawyer will need documentation of injuries in order to file a successful personal injury claim on your behalf.
Protect Your Personal Injury Claim
Insurance companies will look for gaps in your medical treatment or missed appointments to deny or minimize your claim. Insurers will also use sophisticated software to analyze your claim. You can do the following to help protect your case:
- report all symptoms and any changes in your condition to your doctor;
- keep all doctor, physical therapy, and psychological appointments;
- do not discuss your injuries with insurance adjusters; and
- follow all of your doctor's orders.
Your personal injury lawyer will handle negotiations with insurance companies and help you seek the most out of your personal injury claim. To learn more about car crashes in San Diego, please visit our article library.
