Your Medical Reports Are Important for Your Personal Injury Claim

Posted on:2/11/2013
When an automobile accident occurs, whether it is between two cars, a car and a motorcycle, a car and a semi, a car and a pedestrian or with a car and bicyclist there are several things to do on the scene and immediately thereafter.


It will be important if you are able to do as many of these things as possible yourself. If you are unable, ask someone to take care of it for you

 

Don’t panic. Do not leave the scene. Take an personal inventory. Did your car come to rest in a safe location? Are you injured? Can you safely exit your vehicle? Remain at the accident scene until police have arrived and do not leave until you have completed all details needed.

 

Your injuries may not be obvious because adrenaline may temporarily mask the pain and discomfort of your auto accident injuries. Additionally, some injuries do not become symptomatic until several days (even weeks) after the accident.

 

At the scene, you will likely be asked by the other driver, investigating police officer and witnesses if you are okay. The best answer is “Yes, I am injured,” or “I don’t know yet.” It is important not to make any statements that you are okay because you may feel miserable a few hours later. When EMTs arrive, they will help you assess whether you should be transported to the emergency room.

 

Remember, medical records are the best evidence of your injuries. If you have not received medical assistance, the other side can claim that your injuries are not related to the accident. Your personal injury attorney will use your medical records to prove that you are injured.
