Here is the tear sheet from the September 26, 2011 Wall Street Journal:
For Mr. Blane, it was simple - he helps ordinary injured people every day in his busy injury practice - and he advised that if you get into an accident, do not wait or hesitate to get checked out by your doctor to make sure you are okay. The reason being is insurance companies will usually jump on any delay in medical care to try and assert you were not that injured from an accident, or your delay in care can be traced to other medical conditions you had prior to the accident. Furthermore, any delay in medical care does not adequately protect your interests: both medically and legally speaking. Do yourself, and your family, a favor: get checked out by a qualified physician if you feel any discomfort or pain following an accident - the time period following any injury-producing accident is not the time to be "stoic," and you should always follow the medical advice of your doctors.
