Get advice from the car accident lawyers at Cohen & Sinowski, in Atlanta
If you feel injured, hurt or just off after a car accident, you should seek treatment and be treated until your doctor says you are back in full health.
So when should you seek treatment following an Atlanta car accident? Right away? Three days later? A week later? Unfortunately, that’s not a question a lawyer can answer. To be on the safe side, it’s always good to be checked out if you’ve been in a car accident.
Sometimes, common sense applies. Say you were rear-ended at a red light, causing your head to jerk forward and backward. You suffered a small sprain that kept you from sleeping. So, you go to your doctor, and he gives you a muscle relaxer. In a few days, you might feel better. This is a very small claim. If you’d had to go to the chiropractor and be treated four or five times over two weeks, your claim would be only slightly larger.
You recover quickly with injuries of this severity. But the second situation would have more monetary value than the one where you were prescribed a muscle relaxer. Both claims are relatively small because the injuries were small.
It is important to remember that no matter how small the injury, you should always get well before pursuing your claim.
An attorney can give you advice, but they won’t know how to treat any injuries, what sort of treatment you need, or even how long you should be treated. Yes, your health is your attorney’s concern, but how to get you back on your feet is a question that should only be answered by your doctor. This applies to every injury you have.
