If you have been involved and injured in a Southern California personal injury accident, do not avoid going to the emergency room or seeking medical care from a doctor. Having your medical history documented may help your personal injury case. Mark C. Blane, a San Diego personal injury lawyer, explains more in this video. If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, it is critical that you get immediate care for your injuries. Failure to do so may hurt your personal injury case, since insurance companies that review your case will check your medical records. Such details as not going to the doctor until a month after your accident could be detrimental to your case. An insurance company that uncovers a less than satisfactory record of doctor’s visits following an accident may try to peg the reason for your injury on something other than the actual accident. We understand that sometimes injuries do not get noticed for a while. We also understand that some people live in denial, believing that their injuries will go away on their own. Therefore, visiting a doctor to check for injuries and have them documented following an accident will only help your situation. Because we find your well-being important, we want to make sure we can get you the maximum compensation available. Again, make sure you visit a doctor as soon as possible following your injury.
