Seeking Medical Attention After a Car Collision
Many involved in a car collision initially underestimate the severity of their injuries. Far too many refuse medical attention at the collision scene and refuse to be taken away by ambulance. At the collision scene, a person will be dealing with the initial shock of the collision and have adrenaline flowing in their system which can mask the pain of injury symptoms. If you are hurt and you do not seek treatment at the scene, the defendant's insurance company may use this against you. Often times in depositions, plaintiffs are questioned about their failure to seek medical attention at the scene even though their injuries are later diagnosed to be severe.
