FAQ: When You Should See A Doctor About Your Injury

At Bart Durham Injury Law in Tennessee, we recommend you see a doctor immediately after your accident. If symptoms didn't reveal themselves right away and you didn't bother to get checked out right after the accident, do so as soon as you start feeling any pain or you notice anything wrong.

Here are two good reasons to see a physician as soon as possible:

  1. To protect your own health: Only a qualified medical professional can make sure you're not hurt worse than you appear. Even a minor pain could be a sign of serious, unseen injuries that gradually increase in severity the longer you wait. When you do see the doctor, be sure to inform him or her of all your symptoms.
  2. To increase your chances of winning your case: The longer you wait to get a medical checkup, the less likely it is that you will win your personal injury case. Why? Because failing to see the doctor gives the defense a perfect excuse to reject your claim. They can say you must not really be hurt. Plus, you won't have any medical documentation to present to a judge or jury.
