It is imperative that you accept medical care immediately following a car accident. Not all injuries will present themselves in the immediate aftermath. Having a record of medical care will show the court that you went to a doctor or emergency room, which can help with the success of a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.
You should also follow all of the instructions given by the attending doctor. Do not stop taking medicine prescribed until told to and go to physical therapy if the doctor recommends it. Following the doctor’s orders shows the court that you are serious about taking care of your injuries.
