Yes, it is always a good idea to seek medical attention as soon as possible following an accident of any kind, including a car accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident or a construction accident. Never refuse medical treatment if it is offered. The driver and all passengers should be seen by a doctor, who may recognize injuries that are not yet causing you pain.
Even if you do not feel injured, it is quite common for pain to begin several days after the accident. Waiting too long to obtain treatment for potential injuries could hurt your claim for compensation. The longer you wait to receive medical attention, the harder it will be to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident.
Do not settle claims from an accident until you have been advised by a doctor. Otherwise, you may end up receiving compensation for your vehicle’s physical damage, but not for your own injuries. Always contact personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident to receive advice on your best course of action.
