It is extremely important that you see the doctor quickly after your accident so that you can receive prompt medical care. This is also important to your case because the injuries must be proven to be caused by the car accident. Attorney Lundin provides rules to follow with regards to your doctors visits after your car crash; some of these include:

  • Keep all your medical appointments. If you miss appointments, the insurance company may argue that you are not really injured.
  • Fill all prescriptions and follow the doctor's orders.
  • Be honest with your doctor and reveal and previous injuries to the parts of your body that were injured in this accident. If those injuries had resolved before the accident, make sure you make this clear to your doctor.
