Q: Does it matter if I don't get medical treatment right after a car accident?
A:Always see a doctor immediately after a Maryland car accident.
Why? The most common injuries from severe car accidents frequently include head, neck, back, and soft tissue injuries. These types of injuries often take anywhere from several days to several months to develop. Therefore, they may not be evident in the moments immediately following the accident.
However, if you do not document the onset as linked to this event, then you may be stuck footing medical bills on your own.
Why shouldn't you wait to see a doctor?
Certain injuries often do take a while to develop, so actually getting them paid for is sometimes a matter of establishing your Maryland car accident as being the clear cause for your health problems.
In other words, the argument on the side of the defense may be: "Well, your honor, the accident happened two weeks/two months ago. Anything could have happened since then to have caused these symptoms."
