Seeking Medical Attention for your Injuries is Important

You're Injured, Now What?
An update to keep you informed on personal injury situations.

One of the things that the insurance companies look at in determining the value of a claim is when the injured parties first received medical treatment.  If someone is involved in an automobile accident and waits more than two weeks to decide to go to a doctor then two issues arise.  The first issue is whether the medical treatment even relates to something that was caused from the accident.  The second issue is how bad the injury could be if treatment was not immediately needed.  Someone who is injured has a responsibility to act reasonably.  If you are injured and need medical treatment you should obtain that medical treatment.  This sort of thing is not something that should be delayed.  It is irresponsible and certainly could affect the value of any personal injury claim.  If you are involved in a serious accident and the paramedics or other safety personnel recommend that you go to the hospital, by all means go to the hospital.  You do not do yourself or anyone else a favor by being careless with your health.  If you have been involved in a serious accident it is important that you tell all of the medical providers the truth.  It is important to obtain medical treatment in a timely fashion.  You should also obtain a free consultation from the Law Offices of Kennith L. Peterson to determine whether or not you a compensable claim.  Having this information will assist in providing you peace of mind.  It gives you the information you need to make the best decisions at a critical time in your life.  The Personal Injury Law Offices of Kennith L.
