How soon should I go see the doctor?
Immediately, even if you are only a little sore on the day of the accident. Even a small impact causes the occupants to sustain several thousand pounds of force, and most folks feel like they have been run over by a train 48 hours after the accident. If you “tough it out” and don’t go see a doctor, or go to the emergency room, you won’t have medical documentation shortly after the accident. The insurance company will likely dispute your contention that the accident caused your injuries. They do it almost every time, when it is quite obvious that this accident is the only possible cause of your injuries. It is important that you continue to see the doctor every time that you hurt so that he can document your injuries, and do the proper testing.
