It is important to go to the ER, urgent care or see your physician within 24 hours of an accident, even if you feel you aren’t injured. The forces involved in any accident are more severe than you may realize. A visit to the doctor will create a baseline and allow you to be fully examined for injuries which may have yet to present symptoms. Many accident victims are surprised to learn that serious complications affecting mobility and the ability to work may take a few weeks to a few months to present.
If you do not seek medical attention after an accident, the insurance company will reject your injury claim. Their position will be: “you weren’t injured, you told everyone on social media you were ok, and you didn’t even see a doctor. Your present symptoms and injuries are probably the result of something that has happened since the accident and you’re trying to get us to pay your medical bills.”
The other important thing to know is insurance companies always make an incredibly low offer to start. As your attorney, I am able to maximize your financial recovery for all that has happened and work to ensure that any settlement or verdict covers all of your past, present and future medical expenses as well as lost wages and compensation for having to endure the experience of your injuries and the pain of recovery.

There is no cost to you out of pocket as I work on a contingency fee basis.
