You thought you were finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The car accident was a distant memory and recovery was going well — until you found yourself back in the hospital with complications.
What should you do when your Silver Spring car accident injury does not heal as quickly or as simply as expected? There are three simple steps to help make sure you get the additional compensation that your further injury might require:
1. Get Treatment
As with any injury, complications are best treated when caught early. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor about any worrisome side effects from the initial injury you received in a Silver Spring or Rockville car accident. Your body has been through a lot, and it’s quite possible that one problem has triggered another. Get treatment for all subsequent injuries or complications resulting from the accident.
2. Document Everything
Similar to the way you approached the initial injury, it’s important that you clearly document any additional symptoms or complications. This will help when it comes time to request additional compensation from the person responsible for the accident that caused your series of medical needs.
3. Consult an Attorney
If you haven’t already enlisted the aid of a Silver Spring accident lawyer, you will definitely want to do so now. Complications to your injury will rack up more medical bills and insurance agents may be reluctant to provide money for these additional injuries.
