How Soon After an Accident Should You See a Doctor?
Injuries from a car accident should be addressed as soon as possible after an accident. Seeing a doctor and getting the care you need will mitigate prolonged and chronic pain in your future. Too often, victims of a car accident will avoid the visit to the hospital to see a doctor and try to treat their injuries at home. When it comes to car accident injuries, a self-diagnosis isn’t wise. You might not know how severe your injuries are until days, sometimes weeks later. At that point, the damage could be significant, causing an injury to become far worse than a stiff back or neck.
