I was referred to this personal injury law firm by my sister, which I was able to experience the process with her. I really appreciate the way this office took care of my sister. Years after, I was hit from behind by a person that wasn’t paying attention. It caused me so much back pain and discomfort. I didn’t feel like myself. Thankfully my attorney took the time from beginning to end to truly put me first as I recovered. In the end, I was more than happy with my experience here. If you’re looking for great care and the best lawyers, I highly recommend this office.

Even if you do not feel as if there is anything wrong at the scene, it’s essential for you to be examined immediately. Too many folks waive off the chance to be seen after the accident. They don’t realize the impact of the adrenaline keeping them from being completely aware of what’s happening to their body. It’s called shock.
Again, you may not be feeling any pain right after the accident because of the adrenaline, but most people in this situation DO start to feel pain later, once it wears off. This may be the case for you. It’s imperative for you to see your personal doctor so a thorough checkup can identify issues and treat them immediately.
Only a trained physician is qualified to make a diagnosis on whether or not you are hurt and to what degree. The longer you wait, the easier it will be for the insurance company to say you were not injured in the accident.
You can have an osteopath, chiropractor, acupuncturist or other healthcare professional perform your checkup.
There is no rule requiring a claim is only valid when accompanied by an assessment from a licensed medical doctor. Will there be some adjusters who try to convince you otherwise? Possibly.
However, you are the best judge of what healthcare professional will give you the treatment you need. Again, your job is to recuperate and return to good health.
